7 reasons to visit Paradise Cove Resort this spring

Paradise Cove Resort – 7 reasons to check out this amazing, secluded mainland resort in the Whitsundays!

Paradise Cove Resort Whitsundays is a private estate situated about 20km from Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays.

The mainland resort can be accessed by bus, boat, seaplane or helicopter but it is so secluded, boat is the best option – just a 20-minute ride across the water from Coral Sea Marina.

This stunning resort has accommodation options for up to 32 guests, making it a perfect place to get some much needed rest and relaxation. It is also available sole-use for weddings and events.

Here are our top 7 reasons to visit…

Ultimate Thrill & Chill

Peace and quiet is guaranteed at this resort through the natural beauty of absolute oceanfront tropical gardens and bushland falling away into the Coral Sea.

This luxury hideaway takes guests to another place, with lush tropical rainforest and national park on both sides of the 4,000-acre property.

But during the day, you will enjoy the ride of your life in our super-stable jet boat ‘Wildcat’, seeing all the best of the Whitsunday Islands and coral snorkelling spots.

Plenty of accommodation options

Paradise Cove Resort offers five luxurious private villas, including the renowned Dream Villa – the resort’s largest, private villa situated to the side of the property with open spaces and large windows for maximum sea views.

The Rainforest Retreat Cabin, also situated to the side of the resort for privacy, even has its own private beach!

There are also an additional 22 king single beds across shared accommodation rooms. These are perfect for couples, friends and individual travellers.

Wild bathrooms!

The Rainforest Retreat Cabin has its own outdoor bathhouse, recently named one of the world’s top 10 most drop-dead gorgeous bathrooms and an insta-gram favourite!

The Dream Villa, meanwhile, boasts a free-standing bathtub and exquisite al fresco bathroom backing onto tropical gardens.


With its white sand beach fringed by towering coconut palms, Paradise Cove is an instagrammers delight!

The resort’s manicured lawns, lush vegetation and wooden boardwalks offer a stunning setting for those once-in-a-lifetime photographs.

The décor and furniture are inspired by the African and Indian cultures, with exotic silks, rugs and tiles, and there are stunning views of the Coral Sea from every aspect.

Be amongst nature

Paradise Cove Resort Whitsundays is true to nature and guests will witness wallabies feeding, dingos hunting, bush turkeys digging and bush pigs playing.

There have been many sightings from the beach of sting rays, baby sharks and plenty of different types of fish. The array of wildlife and sea life at the resort is an unexpected delight.


Paradise Cove invites all guests to sit back, chill out and relax either in hammocks with a book, toasting marshmallows in the fire pit, floating on bean bags, or just hanging out at the huge Balinese-inspired pool with adjoining warm jacuzzi.

However, there are also plenty of free activities to keep you entertained including paddle boarding, kayaking, tennis, basketball, football, pool and table tennis – and when you’re done with all that, enjoy great meals, all included – you don’t need to do anything!

Easy access

Virgin, Jetstar and Tiger Airways fly directly into Proserpine from most major cities around Australia.

Hamilton Island Airport has direct flights from most major cities and it’s only a short ferry ride across the water to Airlie Beach, on the mainland.
