Nestled in a lush rainforest setting in the beautiful tropical paradise of Palm Cove, the Reef Retreat is a boutique getaway, just 50-metres form the idyllic sandy beach and a short stroll from a wide variety of world-class restaurants and bars. This tranquil environment is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a well-earned break and is also a great base for exploring the amazing attractions near Palm Cove. From here you can easily access the highly famed Great Barrier Reef and the amazing Daintree Rainforest. A short drive will take you to nearby Port Douglas and Kuranda.

The studios, suites and villas have been designed to have a casual style that makes you feel part of the surrounding tropical environment. The generous use of natural and raw timbers and the rich and earthy tones throughout creates a relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere. You will awaken to an abundance of natural light as it streams in through the large doors and numerous windows, placed to catch as much light as possible and reduce the need for artificial lighting. All the rooms are air-conditioned to give you the option of a cool break from the tropical warmth and come with a flat-screen TV with DVD player and cable TV access, comfortable sofas and Wi-fi.

Set just back from the beach at beautiful Palm Cove, the Reef Retreat has 36 studios, suites and villas, all surrounded by palm trees and towering paper bark trees, creating a peaceful and serene retreat from the world. You can lounge around the pool or outdoor spa and soak up the warm tropical sun or make use of the covered entertainment area with seating and barbeques. Birds thrive in this pristine setting and their musical songs will help immerse you in the natural beauty that the Reef Retreat has to offer. Palm Cove is a pleasant 25-minute drive up the coast from the Cairns international airport, so it is easy to access but has the feel of a laid-back seaside community.
