Palm Bay Resort is the perfect island getaway. We have never been so relaxed before. You barely see any of the other guests either which made it serenely peaceful. It would have been great if the spa had been hot and not lukewarm as we would have loved to have spent the evenings sitting in there with cocktails but any longer than 10 minutes and you were shivering but that would have to be our only complaint.

Spectacular

If you're up for some extreme chill, Palm Bay Resort is 100% the place you want to go. Staff were amazingly friendly, wood fire pizza oven, kayaking, views, cocktails, great day spa, pristine pool, thriving wild life... The list goes on. Will definitely be going back. Loved it.

Nothing else like it

We loved it. It's a great experience being away from tvs and wifi. Loved the self catering... makes you excited to cook. Water is stunning and the island is quiet and relaxing.

Friendly and attentive staff..beautiful place.

Pros: Everything
The perfect getaway from the usual resort experience.Low key and relaxing ,affordable and friendly.The self catering idea works well,and most people seem to get the supermarket at Airlie Beach to put together their requirements,and deliver them to the transfer boat.I would like to add some praise for the husband and wife company Island Transfers who got us there.We had a great stay ..GO !

Avoid at all costs!

To start off with no curtains in the room, too much light couldn't sleep. NO TV to chill out and watch a movie. Poor amenities! Ment to be a self contained and when wanting to cook for yourself and not having any utensils to do so. Geckos all over the room which are cute but when have someone like my boyfriend who is scared of bees doesn't help very much.

What a hidden gem!

Pros: This is the perfect hotel for a couple of nights stay to completely relax and enjoy the beautiful island setting. The villas are comfortable and well decorated and communal areas have all of the amenities you would require for a short stay.
Cons: The on site shop is very expensive and so it is best to buy all your shopping before you go on to the island. Although this is advised on the hotel website in any case.
Location: Location is stunning. The villas are right on the beach with access to free kayaking and snorkelling equipment.
