WOW! I can't hardly find words to explain what an amazing day we've had. I know I have a TON of photos to load and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words. So I think this section will be brief.

We woke at 4 am to be ready in the lobby at 4:30 for our ballooning adventure. It was POURING. We felt there would be little chance it …

... It came highly recommended and did not disappoint! We had a tourist style sampler meal, where they give you pretty much a taste of everything on the menu. The satay was to die for! Tonight we met up with friends of ours, Josie and Jamie, and headed to The Salt House for a bit of live music and drinks at sundown. Afterwards, we went to The Waterbar and Grill Steakhouse for fantastic ribs and a lovely view over the marina. Because we have ...

... warnings and advice letters from the hostel as it was meant to hit on the Friday and Saturday as a category five! It felt like we waited ages for nothing though, all it was was a bit of rain and wind and reduced to a category one by the time it reached cairns town, I was expecting to be able to sit and watch a really fun storm! Luckily when it eventually did hit my flight was changed for free as the first had been cancelled. Whilst all that was going on I ...

    Amazing place


    The Kewarra was fabulous. The staff are terrific, the accomodation beautiful and the grounds spectacular. The pools are hidden in lush vegetation and even when the resort is busy you seem to be alone in the grounds, whilst the individual bungalows give you total privacy. I would recommend this resort to anyone who wants to get away from it all, however you can do a multitude of day trips with the guidance of the staff. The meals appear to be expensive but are worth every penny although bar meals are also available. I would whole-heartedly recommend Kewarra.



    Just got back from a trip down under and stayed at Kewarra after flying in from Hong Kong. Even though we arrived at 4.30am, ther was someone there to pick us up.

    Solitutde-perhaps too much, overall excellent service


    Cairns was one of our stops during our honeymoon in mid-February. The weather was fantastic this time of year, and the water at the Great Barrier Reef was 29C (over 80F). First of all, we were greeted at the airport by a driver and a town car, when arrived at the hotel, about 40 minutes later, the front-desk had been eagerly awaiting our arrival. A quick check-in and we were escorted through a maze of tropical plants and trees to our bungalow, over the lagoon. To our surprise, there was a bottle of chilled champagne and a fruit basket for us, with compliments from the hotel. Throughout the time we were there everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Internet access is available in the lobby for a nominal fee. For dinner, they suggest you make reservations at their restaurant, we didn't go there.

    Somewhere close to heaven


    We stayed for two weeks at Kewarra Beach and loved every second of it.

    It is amazingly satisfying to stroll down from your cabin among the trees to a sumptuous open-air breakfast amid genuine rainforest sights, sounds and smells, attended by some of the friendliest folk on the planet.

    Literally a 2 minute walk through specimen trees and you can saunter along miles of white sand and bathe in clean blue water under tropical skies.

    With the Great Barrier Reef and many other points of interest within easy distance, it's a great place to be.

    The real thing is even better than their website...


    Stayed for 4 days at the end of June 04. Prior to our stay I had visited their web site several times and couldn't wait to get there. When we arrived it was even better than we had expected. No walls everything open plan and set in beautiful gardens. The staff were very friendly especially the waitresses and the food was excellent. Some of the mouds are better situated than others, our only grumble was that when we looked out of our balcony all we could see was lush greenery but, we were actually situated only 15 feet away from the service road and in the mornings the traffic noise was an issue. However during our short stay we were very impressed, the pools and the beach are lovely and as the time we visited was 'winter' season there were very few people around which made it even more special. Saying that however as we found to be 'the norm' in Australia there were people staying there from all over the world - UK. Canada, USA, Germany, Japan. Overall we loved it and would like to go back.

    A rainforest hideaway


    Stayed here Jan 2004. The resort is a rainforest! Trees and flowers spilling over rock pools with waterfalls. It will take you a while to walk back to reception because you will stop to observe birds, lizards, and butterflies on your way. You can even feed the fish in the lagoon!

    Great for a peaceful holiday


    Built right on beach. Rooms are cabins on stilts in a jungle, complete with birds,snakes and lizards. Walking to your room is like a mini safari. Some are set round a lagoon full of fish and crabs. Rooms are spacious and have all you need. Food is great from the resturaunt. No discos here..peace is the name of the game. It's 12km north of it you want to visit you can get a bus (2 per hour) or taxi.

    Staff are the most helpful i have known. There are 2 pools which were deserted whilst i was there, as was the beach. You can hire bikes from the reception which are good for going to some of the nearby beaches.

    Well worth a visit but a week is enough, as this place is very quiet! I would suggest this would be a great place to get married.

    Has its drawbacks


    We stayed at the Kewarra Beach Resort which is about a 30min drive out of Cairns itself. After the spotless luxury of the Westin Sydney, Kewarra was a bit of a let-down at first. The rooms look like they have not been renovated since the Eighties, when the hotel opened. I actually considered transferring at one point to the newly opened Beach Club hotel further up the beach in Palm Cove.



    We stayed here in July 2000. The gardens are large and peaceful and the sounds of the birds made you think of tropical islands. The rooms were large and comfotable and very clean. It's about 15km out from Cairns but the local bus route passes just outside (1 every hour). Wild World is just about walkable and Palm Cove is a good 45 minute walk along the beach. Look out for the bandicoots in the gardens at night.

    Falling in Love


    My husband surprised me with an Australian Holiday to celebrate my 55th birthday. We fell in love all over again at kewarra Beach Resort. So quiet and tranquil, romantic walks, birds singing and me feeling more like 25 than 55. I have never felt so alive...and so loved. Thank you Kewarra
