    Hotel Details

    Reefsleep Experience

    This is without a doubt one of the most unique accommodation options on the planet. You’ll sleep under the stars and over the starfish in your very own Reefbed. 

    Your journey begins with a cruise to the outer reef through the idyllic Whitsunday Islands. Once at the pontoon you can ride in a semi-submarine, put on a snorkel, visit the underwater observatory and enjoy a buffet lunch. 

    Once the day-trippers shoot through, you and your fellow Reefsleepers will have the place all to yourselves. Enjoy a sundowner before your evening meal and then head to the upper deck to slip into your cosy bed. Then it’s just you, the reef, and the universe.
