Fodor's Review

This true-beachfront property just south of Palm Cove has its priorities right: Kewarra's sensitively designed, sleekly appointed bungalows and restored pioneer's cottage overlook rain forests teeming with wildlife, free-form pools, or a private white-sand beach. You'll find comfort in these eco-friendly lodgings with silky wood floors, custom furnishings, high-tech appointments (flat-screen LCD TVs, free VOIP-enabled Wi-Fi), and simply furnished balconies or terraces.

There's a glorious open-sided restaurant, bar, and airy lobby, and various on-site activities including guided morning nature walks, sunrise yoga, tai chi sessions, and sociable Friday-night barbecues at the Beach Shack. Browse the boutiques, book a spa treatment, take a dip, go sea kayaking, or do some serious lounging. If you must venture off-site, the helpful concierge and Adventure Desk can arrange customized excursions and transfers via car or helicopter to Cairns, Palm Cove, and the airport.
