Perfect Hotel A review of Sea Temple Resort & Spa Port Douglas
We stayed at the Sea Temple Port Douglas for 5 days/4 nights in early November. I can not fault this property. I work in hospitality and am fussy about service and food. It was exactly as I would have hoped. The staff were great, friendly and helpful but never instrusive. Everyone from reception to restaurant staff. They all went out of their way and everyone greets you with a smile and a "hello". The property is to die for. The hotel is gorgeous and the pool is stunning. We spent so much time laying around and in the pool because there was no where else better to be. There tonnes of towels, and a great pool bar. The meals at the pool bar were a little expensive, but I guess fairly typical. The cocktails were great. We stayed in a swimout apartment and I would absolutely reccommend upgrading to one of these. You can not beat stepping into the pool off your own porch and having your own deck. I have no negatives. We loved it. We didn't eat at the hotel, but would thoroughly reccommend both Salsa and Two Fish - the food and service there were also outstanding. We had a chocolate souffle to die for at Salsa.
We also went horse riding at Wonga Beach. This business has recently changed hands and the gentleman now running it is wonderful. He's great with the horses, and with the guests. I am a horse person and was completely impressed with his treatment of and respect for the horses. It was a great ride - 3 nice big long canters along the beach in a small group. Lovely.
