Undoubtedly a 5 star resort. If you could go back to camp as an adult and have your own private cabin submerged in the forest, with the friendliest staff around to help make your stay perfect, fine food and all the luxuries you want available to you at any time...this is it! I think this place is suitable for a romantic getaway or a fun place to go with friends. Deservant of any and all awards trip advisor!!! Diana, Tanya and the rest of the group at Thala Beach Lodge is by far the most welcoming, helpful and friendly team of staff ever! They attended to any and all our needs, especially accomodating my allergy issues, made suggestions and answered any questions we had, any time! The individual cabins are clean, well equipped and well maintained. Anything you could wish for to enjoy the experience and area...living in the rainforest with room service...what style! The Lodge offers breathtaking views to enjoy during breakfast or at dinner or any time of day. The area is kept as mother nature wanted it to be. Even the birds are happily fed out there! What a peaceful, quiet, serene escape...the secluded beach is a nice walk in the jungle leading the way to paradise on earth. We spoiled ourselves with a Helicopter over the Reef...now that was an experience of a lifetime. The Thala Lodge offers direct chauffering from a landing strip located at the resort which takes you around the daintree rainforest and over the reefs to a pontoon for snorkelling and back. Unbelievable! The Lodge offers guests free shuttle to Port Douglas, which is a beautiful 20 min ride away...great shopping and awesome beach there as well. Book your trip now!!!
