It was an absolute surprise to find such a relaxing environment on a holiday island.
There were no screaming kids with families and the couples in the adjoining rooms were just like us, enjoying a private R&R.
There were birds and wildlife that would show up day and night.
The other residences have been placed so as to provide privacy, and the room we were in had all the cookwares for use to come up with our own dishes and not spend a fortune at restaurants/take-aways.
The hotel managers Rick and Angie were absolutely professional and very helpful in their recommendations towards the island facilities, restaurants and all other aspects.
We absolutely recommend this affordable getaway but there are not that many rooms available. Best to plan and contact directly to ensure there will be a room available.
BTW ensure you have also contacted the local car rentals as it turns out that rental cars are not allowed from the mainland to the island and vice-versa. But you can ferry your own car onto the island.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On a beautifully landscaped site, is a huddle of just 13 A-framed chalets. Holding centre stage is the stunning lagoon pool. The rest of Canopy is devoted to a large grass barbecue area and native trees and shrubs – just the way nature intended.Reflecting the best in relaxed contemporary tropical design, each of the chalets consist of a living/dining area, designer kitchen, bathroom with separate toilet, separate laundry and a loft-style bedroom upstairs. High ceilings add to the wonderful feeling of space and freedom. Ideally suited to two guests, additional guests can be accommodated with the sofa bed. The front veranda enjoys views of the lagoon pool and large landscaped area, while also being screened by native plants for more privacy. Different external colour schemes, that take their inspiration from the National Park backdrop, add an extra flourish of individuality. A green enclave off Yates Street, at the popular Nelly Bay, Canopy offers complete privacy close to everything. Magnetic Harbour, Marina village and the ferry terminal are all less than a kilometre away. The allure of the palm-fringed beach is just a 400 metre stroll down the road. Shops, restaurant, cafes and supermarkets are within easy walking distance. ... more less
