Infinity Pool


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, their infinity pool is wonderful.

If you’ve visited North Queensland, you’ll know that it can get super hot, so what better way to cool down than a fresh dip into this resort’s infinity pool? Not only do they have a swim-up bar with plenty of colourful, tasty cocktails, but the pool also overlooks Townsville Breakwater, the Coral Sea and Magnetic Island

They have a poolside menu that you can enjoy.

What’s a day by the pool without the friendly service of your poolside waiter? Enjoy lazing in your private cabana or a daybed under an umbrella and enjoy casual eats like chicken caesar salad, pizzas and our favourite: fresh prawn and bug brioche sliders! Yum.

Wonderlust Tip:  Order at the bar, and they’ll deliver your order to you by the pool. Psst: Don’t forget to try one of their slushies!


The resort is only a 20-minute ferry ride from Magnetic Island.

A family holiday in Townsville isn’t complete without a half or full-day trip to Magnetic Island. Encounter wallabies, birds and fish as you enjoy a swim at Alma Bay, which is perfect for kids and families. If you’re travelling with friends or as a couple and don’t mind a short hike, we recommend visiting Arthur Bay, which is often secluded and perfect for snorkelling.

Wonderlust Tip:  Hire a car with air conditioning and bring sunscreen, towels, a hat, snacks and bottles of water and you’ve got the perfect kid-friendly holiday.

Modern asian restaurant


They have three on-site alfresco restaurants.

Enjoy sunset drinks and delicious eats at the resort’s modern-Asian restaurant overlooking the pool and the sea. You can choose to indulge in fresh seafood and traditional Asian staples like Peking Duck Pancakes and San Chow Bow.

If you prefer something a little more casual, they’ve got another alfresco restaurant directly across serving up feel-good pub eats like steaks, pizzas and sliders.

Wonderlust Tip:  From Friday to Sunday, they have a seafood buffet for dinner at the third restaurant, where you usually have your buffet breakfast in the morning!


It’s cost-effective and perfect for a kid-friendly holiday.

We get it, holidays can be a little exxy sometimes, but at this family-friendly resort, you’ll be pleased to know that it is ideal for a budget-friendly escape without compromising on the things you love when on holiday.
