Orpheus Island Resort is a secluded island hideaway, located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, accommodating just 28 guests.
The resorts Beachfront Rooms have natural décor and boast Coral Sea views, the Beachfront Villas (with two bedrooms) are perfect for families and groups whilst the South Suites have chic beachcomber interiors and sit just a stone's throw from the water's edge.
Dining at Orpheus changes daily and is dependent on the freshest ingredients available. Enjoy both continental and a la carte breakfasts, tapas-style lunches and degustation dinners (sample an array of the chef's dishes). For an extra special dining experience the resort offers 'Dining with the Tides' where guests enjoy a private dinner on the pier under a starlit sky.
For those after a little pampering the Gwandalan Day Spa offers an array of treatments that embrace the principles of modern and indigenous aromatherapy and touch therapy. Enjoy an outdoor massage under the palm trees to the gentle sound of the lapping ocean.
The fringing reef surrounding Orpheus offers a diverse range of marine life, as such diving and snorkeling should be on the cards. Other activities include a dinghy adventure to explore the local bays, sunset cruises onboard the Maree Ann or day trips to Hichinbrook Island (Australia's largest island National Park).
