Far north quality!

Smash the emergency exit button on your stressful life and get up to Palm Cove for a stunning tropical beach escape!

The Reef Retreat is one of Australia's best hotels (seriously, they scored #14 on TripAdvisor in the entire country, and that includes all those fancy gilt high-tea room-service red-carpet specials) and you could be staying there in a private studio or apartment from a minuscule $259 for two glorious nights. With breakfast. And choccies. And wine.

Whether it's a romantic escape for two, or if you're booking apartments for the gang, this is the perfect break from your hectic lifestyle - slow down, stroll places instead of striding, get some sand between your toes, and relax.


Relax in comfort and style. Chose Reef Retreat as back from the main street but still a wonderful location. Loved the rainforest ambience and the delightful natural pool and spa area. The one bedroom apartment just what we imagined - the bedroom had plenty of room and wonderfully comfortable beds, kitchen good and sitting area comfortable... and a nice balcony. Reception and staff extremely helpful - extras provided promptly with beach towels, umbrellas (yes, it does rain in gorgeous Palm Cove) and help with transfers, tours etc. Would love to visit again.Tripadvisor, August 2016

Our 'happy place'! This is our 3rd trip back to the Reef Retreat since 2009. We love it here - always relaxing, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The pool/spa and BBQ areas are fabulous. Staff friendly and welcoming. Apartment clean, spacious and self contained. Beds are very comfortable. The balcony is a peaceful spot to 'chill'. We'll be back!Tripadvisor, August 2016
