On occasions the service for breakfast was poor. More happier faces serving breakfast could be a focus. Overall very happy though. A fantastic break.

Very peaceful surrounding, transport into town was good.In comparison to our stay here last year, we found standards had dropped. Restaurant no longer opens for dinner and breakfast was satisfactory but not 5 stars. Our room was serviced only once during our 7 day stay, last year it was daily. The front desk needs to more hands om deck during the peak part of the day.

We loved the privacy . Especially having your own pool. The restaurant had a beautiful ambience when having breakfast. Also nice being a bit away from the business of McCrossen street

Tropical paradise in the heart of Port Douglas

Pros: Great location (5min drive into Port Douglas); gardens very well maintained with lots of water features throughout; good on-site restaurant for dinner
Good layout of villas around the central pool and reception means you don't feel like you are in a big resort. There is good security as both the car entrance and footpath entrance is gated and you need to enter in your passcode to open the gate. The onsite restaurant 'Chapter One' offers high quality food and an excellent wine list. Make sure you check your table bookings as there was a "mix up" with our reservation although we booked months in advance. The restaurant manager provided excellent customer experience. The restaurant is also open to the general public. We were allocated to a 3 bedroom villa (the other 2 bedrooms were locked up as it was only 2 of us). Whilst our villa (#7) was clean I felt that it was due for a little TLC - timber around the day bed needed to be stained again, stain on external timber and doors was wearing off and the raw timber coming through. I felt like there was a lack of general ongoing maintenance for villa 7 which I expected for a property of this calibre. It didn't impact on our experience but the condition of the villa was not in line with the price we paid. The telephone also didn't work as someone had damaged the cord that plugs into the wall. This was fixed by reception after it was reported Some villas such as ours back on to the main road that leads to Port Douglas. During the day whilst the water features were working you couldn't hear much car noise but at night once the water features are turned off you can hear some road noise.

Quiet and tranquil resort

Pros: The quietness and relaxing atmosphere.
Cons: The restaurant and cocktail options at the bar.
Location: Not far from town and a local shuttle service is available to take you in frequently.
A great place to relax and unwind. Restaurant could look at a more casual menu for lunch and more food on the plate for dinner. Plunge pool in 2 bedroom villa is refreshing but could be bigger.

Beautiful gardens and great design

Pros: beautiful gardens and great design
Cons: Better maintenance
Location: A bit far from Port Douglas to walk.
The resort has beautiful gardens and great design, but it is let down by cheap fittings and a bit of shoddy building work.

Hi Darren, Thank you for your comments & feedback, we very much appreciate it. I was just wondering if you might be able to advise in more detail about the cheap fittings & shoddy building work? Do you mind advising which Villa you were in? It would be really helpful so as to make sure we can inform the Owner of the villa that additional maintenance is required. Thank you so much for your time!

Family retreat

We had an absolutely fantastic time at our villa. Having our own private plunge pool meant the kids could easily entertain themselves allowing us to also relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds!
