    Safari Lodge Stay

    lovely king bed, clean and comfortable. No A/C but the ceiling fan kept us cool enough. The cafe onsite was great too - esp. the Iced Coffee

    Relaxing holiday in paradise

    The campsite was empty over Christmas, so we had all the facilities to ourselves, as well as the magnificent beach. The hut was very comfortable and more luxurious than expected. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the summer thunderstorms pass over. The camp kitchen is well equipped, bathrooms are clean and the pool is a lovely spot to cool down. Very short walk through the rainforest to the beach, which is mostly deserted and great for long evening walks. For entertainment at night, we went to PK's across the road for some dinner and drinks. A very relaxing holiday!

    Fantastic, relaxed and surrounded by nature. Clean and calm with sufficient shared facilities. There’s great food nearby too - Whet Restaurant & bar in particular. Great staff, amazing snorkeling and ridiculous nature everywhere.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Super comfortable glamping! Only thing different from a fine hotel is that we had to go to the shared toilet facilities. Nice little restaurant with good food on site. Recommend making a reservation if you want to eat at Whet restaurant which has excellent food and is walking distance. Very helpful lady at front desk who recommended the boardwalk for best chance of seeing cassowary birds and watching the sunrise on the beach (both walking distance). We were lucky and saw two cassowaries during our morning walk on the boardwalk.

    Only had fan for cooling was ok for time of year, only three showers in bathroom facilities provided at least in womens bathrooms probably not enough given customers from the snorkelling tour invited to use them afterwards. Was a clean and neat facility however staff friendly and helpful great service
