Great place to spend your first week in Australia
If you only have one splurge make it to Thala Beach Lodge. A beautiful secluded lodge with air conditioned cabins in the trees, not to mention stunning views. Reception was friendly and helpful getting us settled in and oriented to their amenities. Arrangements had been made for trips to the reef and rain forest which were spectacularly good and with out a flaw. Breakfast and the one dinner we had there were memorable with parrots in the trees near our table. A highlight of our Australia trip.
Four great days at this tropical paradise
Every aspect of our stay at Thala was perfect. Our bungalow with balcony overlooking the Coral Sea was spacious and comfortable. So much to offer - the secluded beach for morning walks, the pools to lounge by, Ospreys to enjoy cocktails and wonderful meals and a very attentive staff that is friendly and really looks after you. Views from Ospreys are stunning. Daily breakfast were buffet style. We dined on property two evenings and both meals were excellent. FYI - wifi only at the lodge. Not a big deal for us but it might be for you.
Beautiful, serne but expensvie
A wonderful day trip and evening meal. On arrival it is amazing, an absolute stunning property and very friendly staff. I would say however that it is on the expensive side, a few drinks at the bar and we began to realise that yes, the quality was exceptional, however the pricing was not so... I would return and for nature lovers this place is a paradise, but only if it was a treat or special occasion
Lunches over the weekend
My parents suggested to go here for lunch because of the amazing location and views. We were taken back by how beautiful every was, it felt like a hidden oasis. We had such a lovely first lunch, that we came back the next day! The food and drinks were gorgeous and i’m glad i left room for dessert. Special thanks to Jamon who made us feel very welcome both days. When we visit Cairns again, this place will be on the top of our list to visit. And it should be on yours as well!!
A slice of paradise in Paradise
Beckoned in by a plantation of coconut trees the promise of a memorable experience is suggested. Rich timbers of sweeping stairs & lofty ceilings reveal open plan vistas of tree tops & ocean. There’s nothing more refreshing than tropical mocktails with splashes of ocean & lush vegetation. As lunchtime draws near we venture into Osprey’s Restaurant and we settle on Popcorn crocodile on Thai slaw with chilly hair - the chilly hairs are hand done on the premises .... like spicy saffron threads!! Amazing. Followed by lobster & tiger prawn roll with truffle mayo - shredded cos & onion chives with juniper & celery salted fries with skin - such morish & crispy decadence. The tropical fruit & fruit sorbets were melting moments of heaven. Would have loved to be able to try more of the lunch menu - pity there’s not a mouthful degustation option ..... more to try on another visit to this part of Australia. The walk down to the beach is a good way to walk off lunch to a private beach with hammocks & deck chairs .... a moment to rest & enjoy the gentle breeze. A rustic looking refreshment shack would no doubt cater for thirsty patrons when opened. This paradise is worthy of a few hours - a must to visit.
