Heron Island Resort Review

Set among palm trees and connected by sand paths, this secluded, eco-certified resort offers six accommodation types, from the deluxe Beach House with private outdoor shower and beach boardwalk to the comparatively compact, garden-level Turtle Rooms. Large, elegantly modern suites with CD players, well-stocked minibars, separate lounge areas, and furnished private decks or terraces merit the extra expense. Room rates include breakfast, or book a package that includes all meals. Complimentary activities include non-motorized water sports, guided walks, stargazing, trivia nights, and nature presentations. Snorkeling and diving excursions cost extra, as does the kids' program, run during Australian school holidays (A$15). The delightful Aqua Soul Spa offers treatments with marine-based and natural botanical products, and a spa menu (one package includes a bottle of bubbly and 2 hours of treatments for A$285). The Island's resort shop is also well stocked.
