Figtree Lodge, Cairns

Located just minutes from Cairns Central Business District and International Airport is Figtree Lodge. This three and a half star property features an open plan design set amidst tropical landscaped gardens and is built with the extensive use of natural timbers. From the stunning timber entrance, to the tall Cypress poles, to the pyramid ceiling, one can appreciate the effort taken to create a complex that maximises natural light and breeze flow to create a truly unique setting.

The lodge has 46 Standard Rooms of varying configurations. Rooms are well appointed and nicely furnished, decorated with wrought iron and rattan cane furniture, terracotta tiles, wooden louver blinds and colourful fabrics creating a contemporary Mediterranean feel.
