Orpheus island is THE place to visit. Tranquil surroundings, excellent service, fantastic staff, fabulous food. I can not rate this place highly enough.
If you are looking for the perfect getaway, this is it!!!

This resort is the ideal place to chill out and enjoy excellent amenities and accommodation. The cuisine is absolutely superb which when combined with an excellent wine selection delivers an out of this world dining experience.
The activiees are great if you want to indulge and the staff are terrific. Alswasy very helpful but unobtrusive.
Highly recommended.
We will be back

Excellent cuisine, accomodation and professional staff made my experience at Orpheus a memorial time. This is a home away from home experience. 5 day stay felt like a break of 14 days....so relaxing, peaceful and majestic experience - stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: all rooms have excellent beach views....

Culture, cuisine, comfort and communicatiion...........what more could we want........Orpheus has given us a wonderful combination of these key ingredients.

This was a return visit to Orpheus. Our first to experience the 'new' Orpheus, since it's renovations.

WOW! From the first for us, slick 'Swift' boat ride across from Palm Island, to the first glimpse of the new visual arrival aspect of the stunning endless pool across the water, to the redesigned gardens with the dancing Boab trees, along the boardwalk, to the comfort plus new accomodation...just WOW!

Ben, our host, and his accomplished staff, ensured that we became part of the Orpheus family during our stay. That's the way we liked it, no doubt, whatever you choose to be your experience, that will be provided.

From new learning experiences, such as Indigenous culture and history, and a visit to nearby Fantome Island, with our Indigenous guide, John, to familiarising ourselves with the local Barrier Reef Environmental updates, to the positively scrumptious day to day Culinary magic of Chef and his staff. Chef rightly so, prides himself on the use of local, fresh ingredients, harmony and good health the perfect coimpanions!

Snorkelling trips to amaze and delight us, including a trip to the Outer Reef, the nearby Clam Gardens, the Research station, and the kaleidescope of colours and coral and sealife at the Coral Gardens.

Just book a trip and GO!

p.s Don't forget to dine under the stars on the jetty with candle light, listening to the gentle swish of the water lapping up on the beach. After dinner you can grab a torch/flashlight, and go spotting the evening adventures of the huge rays that feed at night under the jetty, you might even find a Bandicoot, and a cute little echidna toddling along the path too!

So we bid farewell via the scenic helicopter ride back to the mainland, and on to what Mother Nature was unleashing in chilly Melbourne..........memories and photos till we return again!

Upon my arrival the resort managers gave us a warm and informative welcome along with the invitation to relax and enjoy which we did great style and comfort. The beach style understated accommodation was fitting for the National Pack environment and with everything one could wish. The gourmet and wine list were enjoyed with gusto and the 7 course degustation menu in the evenings was an indulgence. Activities both in on and around the waters are plentiful and one can do as much or as little without guilt or pressure. We'll certainly be back. As far as "high end" destinations on the reef go - none can match the special charm, character and service of this glorious place
