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 elegantly furnished standard rooms with balconies, lovely villas, and wilderness lodges for groups. Rangers conduct informative 4WD eco tours,

free nature walks, spotlighting tours, 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. Hire canoes, catamarans, and snorkeling gear, or get pampered at the spa. There are medical facilities, an ATM, and a general store and post office on-site. 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 is a short shuttle-bus ride from reception. Accommodation-meal packages are available, and special deals are regularly on offer through the resort's website.
