Location

Set in the crystal clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus Island is a secluded island hideaway, just 80km north of Townville, in Queensland, Australia. A 30-minute helicopter flight from Townsville or and hour and a half from Cairns, the island itself is a pristine National Park and the surrounding waters are a World Heritage-listed Marine Park offering world-class diving, snorkelling and fishing.

Rooms

Orpheus Island Resort accommodates just 28 guests in a selection of rooms, suites and villas. Laid-back luxe is the style in all the accommodation, with natural colour schemes, blond wood, crisp white linens, and private terraces giving fabulous coean views, cooling sea breezes and stunning sunsets. In-room amenities include iPod docking stations, mini bar, 32-inch TV, Wi-Fi and Bella coffee makers, while the luxurious bathrooms have Li’Tya toiletries, hairdryers, and bathrobes. The Villas have two bedrooms, The rates are not what you’d call cheap, but they do include all meals, complimentary selected Australian wines, beers and soft drinks, a daily Orpheus Experience such as snorkelling, fishing, sunset cruise, and local island tour, a well as unlimited use of motorised dinghies, catamarans, kayaks, snorkelling gear and light fishing tackle.

Activities

As well as the 26m infinity pool, there are plenty of other opportunities for waterbabies to enjoy such as diving, snorkelling, full and half day’s fishing trips, where you have the opportunity to catch Coral trout, Sweetlip, Red Emperor, and Giant Trevally, as well as Dog Tooth Tuna, Spanish Mackerel and Wahoo. You can take a motorised dinghy and explore the many bays and reefs surrounding Orpheus, and perhaps take a gourmet picnic hamper for lunch in perfect seclusion. Or you can take a Research Station Tour to Pioneer Bay and learn about the ecosystem and the local reef. And for the more adventurous, take a 30-minute helicopter trip to Hinchinbroook Island, and enjoy a guided walk on Australia’s largest Island National Park. And when you've done all that you can realax and enjoy some pampering at the Gwandalan Spa, with treatments inspired by Aboriginal techniques, incorporating modern and indigenous herbalism and aromatherapy using wild-harvested Australian botanicals and

Dining

As you’d expect from a tropical island environment, Orpheus offers a light daily changing menu that features fusion cuisine prepared with locally sourced freshly caught seasonal ingredients and produce. There is a contintal and a la carte breakfast menu, tapas-style lunch and a full degustation dinner, all accompanied by regional wines from the award-winning wine list, as well as beers. Don’t forget to try the island’s signature dining experience, Dining with The Tides, where an intimate six-course dinner for two is served under the stars on a private pier with the sunset as a backdrop.
