Fodor's Expert Review Peppers Airlie Beach

Mt. Whitsunday Dr., Airlie Beach, Queensland, 4802, Australia

The expansive one- to three-bedroom apartments at this high-end hillside resort are tailored for comfort, with spa baths the size of small cars, designer decor and appliances, high-end entertainment systems, free Wi-Fi, and big, furnished balconies with great views of the bay and yacht club. The resort is a steep trek or A$12 taxi ride from Airlie's main strip (though a resort shuttle runs every two hours til 11 nightly). In-house dining at Tides restaurant is sophisticated, if pricey, offering breakfast till noon, pool-side lunch, and Modern Australian dinners. On-site facilities include a licensed bar, a wet-edge pool, a well-equipped gym, and an endota spa that offers detox, destress, and anti-aging treatments using organic Australian ingredients. Reef trips and water sports are at your doorstep, but there's plenty of incentive to stay put.
