... the Barossa valley. A wonderful meal that we think was the best that we've had here this week.

Tonight (Saturday), we are off to the Star of Siam again and this time, we re bringing our own bottle of C******nay and paying the $1 corkage fee. We wish that we had known about this when we went previously.
Laundry is done and the bags are packed and in the morning we leave for the next leg of our terrific voyage.

Chilling in Port Douglas

Actually 'chilling' is not the right word. We have had a relaxing day - walking round the headland in Port Douglas - but the temperature is 30+ and very humid. Fortunately though there is an abundance of air con and ceiling fans ... and cold beer (which is much less fizzy up here). The cyclone didn't really materialise but today's Barrier Reef trip was cancelled. There was a possibility ...

... at steak night. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the suggested Barossa Valley Shiraz complimented them perfectly. Both 'mates' work at the local James Cook University, which is a satellite of Melbourne Uni. Adrian is a real character, a retired policeman from Sydney, who has reinvented himself in HR at the university. A no nonsense personality, he must be a breath of fresh air in academia, but is clearly greatly appreciated in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mai Tai Resort Port Douglas

    A very personal paradise

    from

    What a wonderful holiday! We were lucky to be the first to arrive after the completion of the amazing new drive. As the concrete was so fresh we couldn't drive on it, and Andre and Anthony offered us a complimentary upgrade to the "Executive Villa". At first we demurred - we'd seem the Bali style rooms, the tropical verandah, the fabulous view, and the indoor-outdoor bathroom of the room we'd booked. But one look at the villa below and we were swept away. This is not a villa for executives - it is fit for film stars, supermodels, the super-rich!

    'Our little piece of Eden'

    from

    Our time in what we grew to know as paradise on earth began by having our flight turned around half way due to a medical emergency involving one of the passengers.

    Hill top tranquility - we loved it here

    from

    We have just returned to Melbourne, after spending 5 amazing nights at Mai Tai, amidst the wonderful hill top tropical setting.

    A cut above the rest

    from

    If you prefer to commune with nature yet have all the creature comforts, Mai Tai Resort is for you. The rooms are stunningly appointed and set in a beautiful natural bush setting. Our hosts, Andre and Anthony were welcoming, informed and their main aim was to ensure our stay was as comfortable and special as possible. They steered us in the right direction as to what activities would best suit and were happy to advise on Port Douglas' restaurants. However we elected to stay in and enjoyed their cooking.

    Best travel experience ever

    from

    We stayed at the Mai Tai for an all-too-short five days. From being greeted at our car by the two owners Andre & Anthony (who are also the staff, which was great), to the absolutely gorgeous room and private patio, to being served the most wonderful breakfast accompanied by great conversation each morning, to showering while viewing tropical plants, to being brought a battery-operated lantern during a brief power outage, to sleeping in a heavenly bed and being awoken by jungle birds each morning, to being given a parting gift of Thai foot massage products, this was hands down the most wonderful stay we've ever had, anywhere. The beauty that is the Port Douglas/Mossman area certainly doesn't hurt either - the sorrounding rainforest and beaches are breathtaking, healing places. Andre & Anthony are incredibly friendly, generous, down-to-earth, humorous people who make the experience a true pleasure. Their relaxed and joyful natures pervade the property and add to the peace of staying at the Mai Tai. Prior to our leaving for Australia, A&A advised us to rent a car at the airport rather than attempt a shuttle service or taxi to Port Douglas (we would have regreted doing anything but), and arranged a rainforest tour for us (they offered; we didn't have to ask). While we were there they furnished us with endless recommendations for beaches, restaurants, and things to do (and not to do). As much time as we wanted to spend languishing by the Mai Tai's pool, on our patio, or on the comfy daybed in our room, the sights, beaches, rainforest walks and coastal drives called. The property itself is astoundingly decorated in Balinese style down to the last detail with gorgeous statues, tapestries, paintings and antiques - we were continually amazed by how beautiful it all is. The only thing we would have done differently would have been to stay for much, much longer than we did. In conclusion: go. Stay. Enjoy. We certainly did.

    Tropical Retreat

    from

    For my partner and I, this was just the best place in which to unwind for a precious 7 nights. The South East Asian (mainly Balinese with a hint of Indian) ambience reflected in the buildings and decor, nestling pleasantly amongst tropical gardens makes for the perfect retreat.

    A stunning retreat with beautiful views

    from

    We stayed for 3 nights, and wanted to stay for more! The setting is just stunning, sensational views, amazing rooms and a lovely hospitable service. Anthony and Andre are exceptional hosts and relaxing on the balcony over that sensational breakfast is just so relaxing. It is great to be out of the main part of Port Douglas in your own retreat, but close enough to go out for dinner if you feel like it. The attention to detail in the rooms is beautiful, and there is a lovely feeling of privacy. Is very romantic, and we would go back again!

    Tropical Paradise

    from

    Great Location and Great Resort,

    Spent 5 days at Mai Tai lounging around the pool. Really beautiful retreat with fantastic views. Comfortable suites and good service. Would recommend to anybody looking for a total relaxing escape from the big city.

    Pampering atop the Austrailian Rain Forest

    from

    Pristine accomodations, very accomodating hosts and a wonderful view made the last leg of my journey quite memorable. The hosts offered everything from transportation to wonderful meals throughout my stay. Excursions are easily set up while you relax by the pool or sit on the porch overlooking a breathtaking view of the rainforest.

    I recommend it and will stay there again should my journeys bring me that way!
