Palm Bay Hideaway
Beach hut | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Palm Bay Hideaway is an intimate private tropical rainforrest paradise nestled in a protected Palm fringed Bay on Long Island in the Whitsunday Island group.
The Whitsunday Island Group is the Jewel in the Australian tourism crown.
Located at latitude 20 degrees 20 minutes South in the Azure Blue Coral Sea, protected from the Pacific Ocean swells by the stunning Great Barrier Reef and with a tropical climate suitable for year round swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and water sports.
Long Island lies 8 km offshore from "Shute Harbour" on the Australian mainland and is just a short distance from the world renowned Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island and well know resorts of Hamilton, Hayman, Daydream, Lindeman and Brampton Islands.
Access is available only by boat or helicopter.
The Bay has mooring availability for cruising yachts and pleasurecraft.
Previously an exclusive 5 star resort comprising just 21 absolute beach front Bungalows with views over the Coral Sea and facilities including resort style pool, spa, tennis court, kayaks, fishing gear, TV room, library and a large lounge/dining area with an open fireplace for that cosy winter experience.
Palm Bay Hideaway is now under owner management and is offering a unique 5 star acommodation experience without the expensive price tag.
Ever found that your resort dining and beverage bill far exceeds your accommodation costs and blows out the holiday budget?
At Palm Bay Hideaway we are offering a BYO and DIY experience - you bring your own beverages and food and prepare and cook it the way you prefer.
We will provide all the refridgeration, cooking facilities, crockery, cutlery and utensils you will need.
All you pay is your accommodation tariff and a one off nominal National Park Island services fee.
Everything on the Island is brought in and removed by barge so the service fee is to offset the cost to provide power generation, water and wastewater treatment, gas, barge transport and the exit clean on your Bungalow.
Your Bungalow is air conditioned, has celing fans and comes equipped with fresh linen and towels plus a kitchenette with bar fridge, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, coffee plunger, stainless steel sink and all the crockery and cutlery you will need for an intimate breakfast before a lazy morning in the hammock on your balcony.
You are free to take advantage of all the resort facilities at any time but we ask that you take full responsibility for your actions at all times to ensure your own safety and the quiet enjoyment of the resort by others.
Of course, depending upon the time of year, you may be the only guests on the Island.
Children are welcome but as the Bungalows are designed for only 2 persons, and to enhance your holiday enjoyment we recommend that you book additional units for your children.
Where younger children are required to stay in the same bungalow with the parents, there is a daybed in the bungalow that can be used for a maximum of 2 children.
Children staying at the resort are under the full responsibility of the their parents.
The resort has a full time live-in caretaker to attand to any maintenance or repair issues and he can assist you with other needs where possible. The caretaker has a small shop which can supply some basic groceries, frozen foods and beverages by request.
