Everything is said about the transfer from Cairns. It is well organized on time without too much of hotel touring to get the guests onboard. The flight is pleasant, the boat ride to the lodge bumpy and wet but it is the summer weather there.
Friendly welcome after a tractor pool out of the water. The usual welcome drinks and explanations. A pleasanr rather small swimming pool in front of the main building. Nice rooms with great views but not really luxurious : no bath tub and the bathroom is not exceptionnal.
Quietness except for the normal rain forest noises is exceptionnal.
You need to book trips because there is not much to do at the lodge and one cannot swim in thesea:too many hazards !
Theguides are very informative and friendly. The trip to Cooktown was especially interesting. Beaware that you may miss the barrier reef because of the weather.their boat isnot large enough to accommodate choppy waters.
The cuisine is excellent, varied. The BBQ was really excellent. Communal dining for all meals is not what you expect at this level of luxury and service is very slow. note also that clients are almost all British...so if you are allergic...
Prices are quite high and in my view too high for a placd which is remarkable but not exceptionnal.
