    So Relaxing!

    This place is unique! The little huts on the beach are very cute and its nice to feel like you have your own space and not a hotel room! The food options is the only downside but saved a lot of money this way!! Just need to be prepared. We did also go during CoVid so it was reduced serivces. Loved this island getaway!

    Perfect secluded get a way.

    Beautifully appointed in a stunning setting. Great location. A perfect 4 day break. Even the self catering element works and they clean up everything for you

    Lovely stay!

    Wonderful stay in a relaxed, self-catering resort. Lovely, clean bungalows with AC and a deck right on the beach with Cockatoo, Wallaby and Goanna visitors! Friendly staff and a lovely salt pool. Kitchen open most nights but didn't try as we self-catered and the kitchen facilities provided had everything you needed. Lovely island with walking trackings and multiple beaches (although we were there in stinger season!). Phone reception and wifi worked on the island (with Telstra). Nice and neat gardens and cool central hangout space.

    All the staff were fantastic, friendly and really helpful, the villa I stayed in was peaceful and quiet enabling me to fully relax. The wildlife around the property was amazing from the hundreds of butterflies to the resident wallaby family. The pool area and the bar were really nice and the walks were fantastic to explore the island.

    We loved our stay at Palm Bay Resort. It is the perfect couples destination for a getaway from busy city life. We stayed for 5 nights and made the most of the pool, tennis court, kayaking and board games. We also loved the self-catering on the island, bringing our own food to enjoy made it much more affordable.

    A little gem in the Whitsundays - friendly and approachable staff who make you feel at ease throughout your stay. Efficient transfer to Hamilton Island which makes it even more stress free. If you want a relaxing hideaway then Palms is the place.
