It might be pricey, but it’s definitely worth it! The privacy, seclusion, ADULTS ONLY, peacefulness, and great service, and to top it off, FOOD’s awesome too. If you want to pamper yourself (cus you deserve it!) blow your money here and thank me later!😊
Shame it's so far away for us!
From the time my wife and I arrived to departing was amazing. A staff member greeted us at the tiny airport, our luggage was collected and the next time we saw it was in our rooms. We agree with all the other complimentary comments made by other guests. The entire island seems to operate like one big family – a waiter in a restaurant one night ends up serving you breakfast in your hotel another day, a novel idea to keep switching staff around to different establishments. Would love to say we’ll be back soon but it’s 9,800 miles away from where we live!
I must say I agree ...
Let´s face it. You sometimes feel a bit special, a bit different. This proves Im not. I must admit I agree with the hundreds of Beach Club fans. This hotel is just fantastic! Let me try to summarize some of the highlights as well as the few things one could suggest to enhance: Pros - Location. All rooms are facing Cat´s eye beach and meters away from the sand (as opposed to the horrible buildings in the back) - The staff is outstanding. Genuinely interested on your well being. Everyone! - Rooms are comfy, modern. Not too large. Not too pretentious. Same for all key hotel areas. Hotel was probably renovated at some time but you don´t get to sense it, great design work To improve (sorry, life is imperfect) - As we used our room for cocktails and light meals, found that the cleaning was somehow automatic, since it missed the same spots three days in a row. Nothing serious, at all - I personally think that having buggies rented straight from the hotel would be a positive add-on. Actually, when we compared the Beach Club to airbnb´s, that seemed to be the Beach Club only negative. Of course, renting buggies in this island is very easy and only hundred meters away from the hotel, just thought it would be a handy add-on for the hotel at the moment of booking or afterwards In summary. Hamo is great. Take some time to go around it (buggie + hike). Do not miss Whitehaven. And stay at the Beach Club, particularly if you are a couple like us looking for a place to relax and let your mind wonder .. trust the wallabies, they like it as well -
Wow - we have been to HI twice before but this was our first stay and will definitely be coming back. The whole experience was amazing. We were booked for 2 weeks but had to go home early because of the Covid 19 . The staff have been exceptional! - all of them from reception to wait staff to housekeeping to drivers. A special thanks to Elouise and Madi for their care of us and to Tariq the manager who was very helpful and obliging. You don’t mind paying a bit more for accommodation when the service is this good. My wife badly sprained her ankle on day 3 here and Tariq and his staff were very concerned and helpful. The rooms are very clean and really well laid out. We had a ground floor unit and it had its own outdoor area with amazing views of the ocean. Everything we needed was there and if it wasn’t the staff were just a phone call away. ( Didn’t have to ask for more toilet paper once during the virus lockdown!! 😁) The food at the restaurant was great quality and similarly priced to the better restaurants on the island. They have a great lounge area for relaxing when it was too hot outside. The chauffeur service around the island was fantastic as we never waited anymore than 5 mins to go anywhere or get picked up. The drivers were also full of helpful information: Fantastic pool for those long days of relaxing and the dedicated beach area for beach club residents ensured you could always get a lounge. The handling of covid19 was expedient, caring and empathetic. No one wanted to cut their holiday short but the staff handled it with great efficiency and understanding especially given most of them had been told they had no job in a few days time. Bottom line - no negative comments to be made, great experience and perfect place to stay for a relaxing care free holiday - we will be back.
As you can see from the numerous reviews already, there isn't much I can add that hasn't already been said about this wonderful place. It's the furthest away from home (UK) that I've ever been, and is worth the behemoth of the journey if you're visiting Australia. The beautiful Whitsunday Islands and the inhabited Hamilton Island itself are still largely untouched, and the Beach Club is a little piece of paradise surrounded by all of it. You're picked up at the airport by a personal shuttle and given an explanation of the amenities on the island by your host. The entire island is connected, and you can call for a shuttle to collect you from anywhere. We had an early flight in so our room wasn't available but the hosts were happy to supply appetizers and free drinks while you wait. Once checked in, everything can be billed to your room including the aforementioned anywhere, all you have to do is sign a piece of paper once you tell them where you're staying! I quickly realised I had, without knowing at first, that I had booked the best hotel on the island. Compared to the other hotels and vacation homes, everything is private to Beach Club residents. This includes the entire beach area at the back of the area, and of course, the beautiful infinity pool. There are no children allowed at the Beach Club. The food each evening, is amazing. It's explained to you what it is and what's in it, fantastic service from the staff on hand and a large selection of cocktails and wines to compliment your meal. We were lucky enough to extend our stay by one extra day, staying in the most comfortable room, listening to tropical rain each night and the waves in the morning. I could live there tomorrow and never look back. Activity wise, everything that you can do within the entire Whitsunday area can be booked through reception. Not to mention the natives, sulphur crested cockatoos, are hilariously friendly and hugely entertaining as they land on your balcony or peek into your room. They're everywhere on the island so matter where you go, they're following! Mind your fingers and your food, they will eat what you can't finish and not pay the bill! At the end of our stay, we were taken back to the airport in our shuttle by the manager of the Beach Club, who thanks you for staying and choosing his hotel. It's a great personal touch and does make you aware of just how much pride and effort has gone into making the Beach Club truly spectacular. You're booking the best when you choose here, so what are you waiting for?
