The 4-star Palm Bungalows is a tranquil resort on the north-eastern side of Hamilton Island in Queensland's scenic Whitsunday Islands region on Australia's north-east coast. It consists of freestanding bungalow accommodation nestled amid tropical gardens just a two-minute walk from Catseye Beach. To get here, it's around a 90-minute drive from the nearest airport at Cairns, plus a short ferry ride. Or you can fly direct to Hamilton Island Airport from any of Australia's major airports.
Guests have a choice of various bungalow accommodation dotted throughout the resort's landscaped gardens, each of which are perfect for couples, small families or groups. They all boast a breezy modern interior, a private balcony, a kitchenette complete with oven and dishwasher, king bed plus a single divan, air conditioning, tea and coffee-making facilities, a separate seating area with a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi and a well-equipped bathroom with shower and bath.
Guests have free use of the island's fitness centre, swimming pools, and tennis courts. Out and about, the hotel can organise a range of trips such as to Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays and boat trips on the Great Barrier Reef, a world-renowned diving and snorkelling area. If you feel like staying close to home, the nearby Catseye Beach is the perfect place for windsurfing and more snorkelling, and playing in the sand with small children who will also enjoy a trip to the nearby Hamilton Island Wildlife Park, just a two-minute walk away.
The resort's bungalow acommodation is well kitted out for self catering, or there are plenty of restaurants in the nearby area as well as supermarkets to buy groceries from.
