I have rarely encountered a more inviting resort location in all my travels. Although it does have a bit of a glitzy sophisticated look with the fancy resorts you meet lots of friendly people in the area. Taking a stroll along the long pier you are sure to see many friendly faces and get a sense of the relaxed vibe.
You are such a long way from it all up here (almost 1700km from the next capital city, Brisbane).
Alamanda Palm Cove has 69 rooms in one, two and three bedroom arrangements. Good use is made of the spectacular location with great views through big glass windows which open to let in the tropical breeze when it warms up.
Wonderful swimming pools,and outstanding access to the beach. This is an ideal resort for a barefoot family vacation or romantic getaway where you can easily slip onto the golden sands of Palm Cove on 25 metres away.
This is a classy property and for Australians you will have likely seen the award winning Nu Nu Restaurant on one of many celebrity chef TV shows or the equally good spa.

The Port Douglas, Palm Cove and Cairns Region is a top location for exploring the far north or enjoying a relaxed vacation.

A great little beach resort in the prime position where all the restaurants and little shops are down by the jetty. A great little four star property which has everything at it's door step. Within the resort there is a restaurant, café, bars and an outdoor pool and more.
With only 26 air-conditioned rooms this is another quality small option.

Thala Beach is a little North of Palm Cove on the incredibly scenic and world heritage road to Port Douglas. We added this classic resort as it regularly features in Australia Best Resort lists. You will also look kind of hard to find anyone who has a bad word to say about this one on the review pages.
There is a sophisticated charm and quality to the Palm Cove holiday experience despite its kind of remote North Queensland location. It can seem sometimes like you have stepped back into another era before mass market tourism and you could enjoy quality time with family without all the bells and whistles.
That is not to say there is not access with well constructed tours to some of the greatest natural wonders on the planet in the wet tropics rain forest and the Great Barrier Reef at your doorstep.
