Stars, sea and wildlife - it doesn't come any better than this. All the comforts of a unique luxurious hotel, with the Great Barrier Reef and the RainForest literally on the doorstep.
There's something slightly incongruous about the stretched limo which takes you from Cairns into the heart of the forest
Whoever designed Thala Beach Lodge realised that that they couldn't improve on the location. Step out of your room - and you're surrounded by some of the most spectacular sights that Nature ever provided. The birdlife, the stars, and two deserted beaches.
We took day trip into the forest, and spent another day on the Reef (via Port Douglas).
And at night when you wind down on the balcony of your stilted room, the sound of the jungle comes to you. Unforgettable...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Elevated on stilts, 83 eco designed timber bungalows are discretely concealed within the forest canopy, blending in with the natural environment and feature ocean, mountain or forest views. 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. A completely organic 650 tree coconut plantation is home to a unique coconut odyssey tour highlighting the extraordinary qualities of the 'tree of life'. ... more less
