Property Details

Palm Bay Resort is a self-catering resort offering accommodation with access to an outdoor pool, a private beach area, a day spa, and a tennis court. The resort is nestled on Long Island, one of the iconic islands of the Great Barrier Reef. Located in our own secluded cove, Palm Bay Resort offers spacious Balinese inspired villas set on the edge of the rainforest with views to the Whitsunday passage and the Coral Sea. The resort is accessible only via water transfer with Island Transfers from Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour or with an airport pick up from the Proserpine airport. Transfers are also available directly from Hamilton Island with Mars Charters. Guests are met on the beach directly from the water taxi services and enjoy a personalised check in with a cool drink by the resort staff.

The only self-catering resort in the Whitsundays, Palm Bay offers guests a catering service to pre-order food prior to arrival. We also offer wood-fired pizzas (during peak season) for those wanting a break from cooking. Guests enjoy a guest kitchen and dining area located off reception and overlooking the pool. Most of our guest rooms are beachfront while others have both garden and water views. After a day of kayaking, fishing, day tours to the Great Barrier Reef, or hiking one of the many island trails you can relax on your private balcony or enjoy a cocktail and pizza from the fully licensed bar.

Our 23 unique accommodation villas and suites are ideal for couples or individuals and we can cater to groups of up to 60 people offering sole occupancy of the resort for events, weddings, and corporate functions. Other facilities include the poolside dining area as well as our Palm Blue Day Spa, beach pavilion and lounge space, media room, tennis court, nature walks, and kayaks. For the more adventurous, we can also help you organise Whitsunday activities and tours such as reef snorkelling, fishing charters, and water-sports adventures.

There is NO WIFI at the resort; however, there is very good reception on the island. We recommend you use your hotspot or bring your own mobile wifi with you. Our front desk reception and friendly resort staff are available 7am -7pm to assist you. Please Note: The resort is self-catering and guests must bring all their own supplies. Guests are NOT permitted to bring their own alcohol to the island.

Check-in time starts at 2pm. Check-out time is 10am.
