Sebel Reef House and Spa, The, Cairns

Distinctly different to other hotels, The Sebel Reef House is a luxurious boutique resort with a sophisticated yet easy going atmosphere. Perfectly positioned in the heart of Palm Cove, the resort is located just ten steps from the white sandy shores of the Coral Sea. Palm Cove is a cosmopolitan beachside village situated 25 minutes drive north of Cairns International airport. An idyllic destination offering a unique combination of casual ambience and world class facilities. Here, where no building is higher than the surrounding coconut palms, you’ll find an exciting array of restaurants, cafes, bars, galleries and shops. The spectacular Great Barrier Reef and world heritage rainforest are right on the doorstep. A brand new purpose-built health spa is now open.

Sebel Reef House is nestled among tranquil tropical gardens and ancient towering Paper Bark trees. The colonial-style architecture is designed to capture the romance of the tropics and the splendour of a bygone era. Candle-lit corridors and fresh white wash walls give way to three pristine pools and two spas. Reef House Restaurant offers unsurpassed ocean views, while a Poolside Cafe offers al fresco indulgence alongside a cascading waterfall. There is also a small, secluded conference centre. A rich history is reflected throughout the resort, particularly in The Brigadiers Bar, which operates a unique honesty system (guests gather here each evening at Twilight Hour to enjoy a glass of complimentary punch). In true Sebel style, the service is personalised and unobtrusive, with every guest enjoying VIP treatment from the moment they arrive.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
