Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina Review

With a minimalist lobby, golden-orb chandeliers, and suede chaise longues, this resort is among Cairns's hippest. Outdoor areas are suitably sleek, with extensive wooden decking, palm-shaded swimming pools, a Jacuzzi and a poolside cocktail bar. Spacious rooms have muted decor, balconies, and flow-through views of the pool area and gardens, or the mountains, bay or marina. Paying a little extra for a Horizon club room or suite is worth it for the amenities and services, including free Horizon Club breakfasts, and sunset drinks and canapés. There's valet parking, and the helpful tour desk can arrange activities off-site, such as Great Barrier Reef excursions.
