Fodor's Review

This stylish, high-tech marriage of glass, stainless steel, dark timber, and corrugated iron nestles in tree-covered dunes on the island's west coast. The impressive lobby, with its cathedral ceiling and polished floorboards, leads out to wraparound decks with outdoor dining areas and one of the resort's four pools. Lodgings include standard rooms with balconies, spa rooms, one- to three-bedroom villas, beach houses sleeping up to 13 people, and basic wilderness lodges. Rangers conduct informative 4WD eco-tours, free nature walks, spotlighting tours, Segway adventures, and cruises (in season) to spot whales, dugongs, and dolphins. Children can join junior ranger or kids' club activities. Free fishing classes and boat rentals are available; resort chefs will even cook your catch. Rent canoes, catamarans, and snorkeling gear, or get pampered at the day spa. There are medical facilities, an ATM, and a general store and post office on-site, as well as Wi-Fi in all rooms. Seabelle's excellent

menu ($$$) showcases native ingredients and local seafood, with vegetarian options; Maheno restaurant is big on regional produce, and puts on elaborate buffet dinners on Friday and Saturday night. The Dingo Bar nightclub—one of four bars at the resort—is a short shuttle-bus ride from reception. Accommodation-meal packages are available, as are regular special deals on the resort's website.
