A beachfront hideaway nestled between tropical rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Kewarra Beach Resort & Spa is a secluded retreat, set in 33 acres of lush rainforest amongst a natural oasis of coastal lagoons attracting birds, butterflies, wallabies and resident monitor lizards, and sweeps all the way down to the private beach.

The freeform swimming pools are a focal point, set in the heart of the gardens. The main pool features a waterfall spa and secluded cove, and there’s a second seasonally heated rock pool ideal for a quiet swim. Wake to the sound of birdsong and begin your days with a relaxed breakfast at Paperbark restaurant, on the open-air terrace overlooking the beautiful gardens. The menu here focuses on fresh local produce, and there’s also a charming beach shack (seasonal) right on the water's edge.

Rooms are dotted throughout the gardens. The signature bungalows are either concealed in the rainforest, beside the lagoon or on the beachfront and are ideal for couples, while the Rainforest Suites are more spacious, set around a water feature with an expansive patio deck.
