Say hello to Reefsuites, Australia’s first underwater hotel with sparkling views of the Great Barrier Reef.
It’s one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders. The Great Barrier Reef boasts the world’s largest coral reef system, offering hundreds of tranquil tropical islands as well as over 3000 individual reef systems. As one of Australia’s most popular destinations for locals and visitors alike, finding the perfect spot to stay near the Great Barrier Reef has just got easier with this latest luxe (and oh-so-unique) hotel.
Meet Reefsuites, the new overnight experience now open at Cruise Whitsundays. As Australia’s first underwater hotel, get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience and a magical night overlooking the dazzling underwater world of the reef beyond. Since swinging open its doors in late 2019, Reefsuites are attracting attention from travelers across the globe for this intimate overnight (and underwater) accommodation experience.
The rooms are set in Reefworld, a bespoke pontoon moored off the shore at Hardy Reef. With just two rooms on deck, these private all-inclusive Reefsuites are the pinnacle of luxurious accommodation. The journey begins with a high-speed cruise through the Whitsunday Islands to Hardy Reef, before arriving for lunch on at your accommodation. Spend the day snorkeling, diving, swimming or even taking scenic helicopter high over the iconic Heart Reef.
As day turns to night, grab a drink at sunset and enjoy a starlit long-table dinner on the pontoon’s upper deck. With a full stomach, you’ll then head downstairs to your Reefsuite to retreat in this unique undersea accommodation. Each room boasts stunning floor to ceiling glass windows, giving guests a prime viewing position for the reef beyond. Watch the abundant marine life from the comfort of your bed and wake up to this spectacular view in the morning.
Securing your spot at the Reefsuite won’t come cheap ($1,199 for a single and $799 per person for a double room), making it a perfect luxe adventure or epic anniversary gift. The experience includes an overnight stay in the Reefsuite, all meals throughout your stay (including breakfast, morning teas, afternoon teas, and dinner), all wines and beers, reef activities and more.
