It is unusal for me to write a review but my family and I stayed for 4 nights in November and it is the best Hotel I have stayed in for a long time. It is in an exception position on its own peninsular flanked either side with beautiful private sandy beaches. The staff couldn't do enough for you, we enjoyed superb cuisine, amazing nature walks, thoroughly enjoyed the new Spa, the highlight was visiting the Star Gazing Observatory and Kayaking with a personalised guide in the clear blue ocean. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spacious, the views were breathtaking. It's a must if you are in the area.

- Thala Beach Nature Reserve is a family owned 58 hectare nature and wildlife reserve 15 minutes south of Port Douglas. Get there from Cairns via a spectacular 45 minute drive along Captain Cook Highway.

Panoramic views are enjoyed from open-sided Osprey's Restaurant across the forest canopy and beyond to the Coral Sea. Guests and visitors dine amongst birds in the surrounding treetops, whilst enjoying modern Australian cuisine with friendly and attentive service. Granite boulders, waterfalls and overhanging trees create natural swimming pools blending discretely within the environment. Paths wind through rainforests and woodlands, connecting with secluded coves and beaches, passing through habitats for endemic birds, wildlife and flora. Guests enjoy complimentary guided nature tours by onsite rangers including tree planting, stargazing at an outdoor observatory, beach discovery, wildlife walks and bird-watching tours.
