Is This Queensland's Ultimate Tropical Spa Getaway?

Need a vacay?

If you’re already feeling tired, stressed and exhausted this year and so over the winter chill, we’re here to tell you there’s a simple way to soak up some tropical sun and an escape to the ultimate tropical spa getaway is closer than you might think.

Here’s how to get away from it all without leaving the country!

Save on international flight costs and splurge on spa treatments instead by hopping on a flight to Cairns (snag a sweet deal on Jetstar and you’re away for less) and head to the tropical haven of Palm Cove. Just 25 minutes from Cairns and you’re bathed in the beauty of swaying palm trees and ordering your first beachside cocktail in no time.

Alamanda Palm Cove is our pick of the holiday retreats, the only hotel to boast absolute beach frontage in Palm Cove with only palm trees separating you and the ocean.

Feel instantly relaxed when a complimentary glass of bubbles is handed to you on arrival. Now that’s how you get a holiday started!

Rooms at Alamanda are HUGE, with plenty of space to chill out in tropical paradise. Our one bedroom pool view room featured an enormous lounge room with super comfy corner lounge, dining table, fully equipped kitchen and balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. Book ahead to secure an ocean view room for the full coastal holiday vibe.

Rise & shine to pilates and beachfront yoga compliments of the resort. Trust us, it’s worth the effort to start the day stretching out to the calming voice of the zen-like yoga instructor and the sound of the waves crashing just moments away.

Alamanda’s award winning day spa is not to be missed. Few spas in Australia boast such a stunning beach backdrop and the real highlight of the experience is finishing your treatment in the sanctuary of a private rooftop spa pavilion. You can book a private pavilion post treatment for an hour or why not gather your gal pals and order up some food from Nunu’s Spa menu and make it a little spa party?

Food from onsite restaurant Nunu’s is next level. Voted one of Queensland’s top restaurants and helmed by celebrated Chef Nick Holloway, Nu Nu is open 7 days from early morning to late. Book the Alamanda Breakfast Special as part of your stay and you’ll be treated to an extravagant two-course breakfast with a side of beach views. It’s also definitely the place to be for sunset cocktails, sipping Margarita’s as big as your head!
