My daughter and I recently stayed at the beautiful Long Island Resort and were so happy with our stay! We were on a budget but managed to still take advantage of everything we wanted to on the island. The staff were friendly, the service was great and the atmosphere is competely relaxed - just what we wanted!!! The beautiful native animals were amazing and everyday was just breathtaking! We were so sad to leave and will definitley be going back!!!

The view was magnificiant, straight out to the water. We headed straight to the dining room for a great buffet lunch before heading out to do the 1 hr gentle bush/track walk of the northern end of the island. Cocktails by the poolside bar overlooking the perfect sunset whilst feeding rainbow lorikeets… The resort is not fancy and modern but very very relaxing. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. The perfect place if you need to Chill Out !
