Celebrate the beginning of your relaxing five-night holiday with a complimentary bottle of bubbly while unpacking in your spacious self-contained Deluxe Studio Apartment or 2 Bedroom Apartment. Take a moment to appreciate the large balcony and panoramic views of the ocean and beyond as well as the wide range of in-room facilities including air-conditioning, kitchenette, dining area and cable TV. There’s no better way to cool down in the balmy Whitsundays than with a splash in the inviting swimming pool - and complimentary pool towel hire makes it even easier. No holiday is complete without a bit of a sleep-in, so take full advantage and on your last day, enjoy a late 12pm check-out.
Live the high life for a day and organise a Whitsundays sailing adventure, with a huge variety of vessels available to hire or simply go out on for the day. Alternatively, jump onto a Fantasea high-speed catamaran cruise and head out into the great blue yonder, docking at the Reefworld Pontoon where Groupies can snorkel or take a trip in a semisubmersible. Set a day aside to head inland to Cedar Creek Falls, where a beautiful natural swimming hole appears in the wet season. After a fabulous day of exploring Airlie Beach, the surrounding islands and the Great Barrier Reef, post some of your holiday snaps to Facebook, send a few emails and then enjoy a delicious meal at the resort’s poolside Mediterranean style restaurant.
Airlie Beach is a vibrant modern town rich in tourist amenities and services including supermarkets, chemists, banks, post office and medical centre. The Esplanade is dubbed Airlie’s ‘eat street’ and offers a rich selection of restaurants and bars, all accompanied by a fresh sea breeze.
We had the most fantastic view from our studio apartment, you could not wish for a better view of the ocean. The studio was a good size, clean and well equipped.
