Why the Reef House in Palm Cove is the Perfect Destination for a Girl’s Getaway

There’s something so special about a holiday with the girls. Bonding, reminiscing, and creating new memories away from the real world is something we all need to do every now and then. But as life gets busier it can be hard to find time to spend with friends.

But whether you’re looking for a quick weekend away or a luxury holiday with the girls, the Reef House in Palm Cove is an ideal destination all year long. Here’s why:

Stunning location

Palm Cove is an idyllic seaside village located in Tropical North Queensland, a half hour drive north of Cairns.

While it’s nearby to a busy city like Cairns, when you’re in Palm Cove, you feel a million miles away from the real world. The vibe of Palm Cove is one of calmness and relaxation. You’ll instantly feel refreshed the moment you arrive.

The natural beauty of the area is even further enhanced by the year-round sunny weather. No matter the time of year, the weather is gloriously warm. On top of the ideal weather, Palm Cove also happens to be sandwiched between two of the incredible natural attractions on Earth – the Wet Tropics rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, so no matter your interests, there is something to see.

Extremely safe

Palm Cove is a very safe and welcoming place. Friendly, laidback, and small, you don’t have to worry about being lost in the crowds or finding your way around. Palm Cove has a small population of only 2000 people, a variety of hotels, making it very inviting for visitors, and most facilities like shopping boutiques and restaurants are located on the main strip of town, Williams Esplanade.

The Reef House also happens to be located on Williams Esplanade, making it very easy for people to get around and explore.

Luxurious accommodation

A girl’s getaway is often all about the luxury and that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Reef House.

Our beachfront boutique hotel is peppered with luxurious and thoughtful touches throughout. From the welcome drinks to the signature activities available to guests, to of course, the 5-star accommodation on offer.

With only 67 rooms and suites, we find the perfect balance between an intimate hotel and a luxury resort – you won’t be forgotten about or lost in the crowd and all of your needs will be catered for. You can choose from rooms, suites, apartments, and villas, with options that can sleep up to groups of 8 people.

The Reef House is also an adult-only boutique, making it the ideal getaway for busy adults.

The spa

A stunning location, a luxurious hotel, and a girl’s trip all go hand in hand with pampering. Which is where the Reef House Spa comes into the equation.

While Palm Cove is known for a lot of different things, one of these is that it is considered the spa capital of Australia, offering some of the most amazing day spas in the country.  And of all of the day spas in the region, the Reef House Day Spa is the most coveted.

Offering a range of luxurious services – including Phytomer treatments – the Reef House Day Spa has an excellent reputation for a reason. Every service is truly tailored and bespoke to every individual that enters the day spa.

Under the helm and guidance of Isabelle Neil, who was trained by Clarins, Chanel, Dior and Phytomer in France, the spa provides the ultimate indulgence for each guest by delving into who they are and what they truly need.

And with a wide service range available, there is no chance that you will finish your pampering session and not feel satisfied.

Tropical escape packages

If you want to take all of the hassle out of holiday planning, you can leave the planning to us and take us up on one of our amazing tropical escape offers.

Each of our tropical escape packages offers additional inclusions, some inclusions you may have include spa treatments, champagne, seafood platters, degustation dining and much more.

We have a variety of different tropical escape packages available at varying lengths, so whether you’re heading away for a few nights or a longer trip, there’s an option to suit.

For a girl’s getaway our pick of the bunch would have to be the 4-Night Wellness Escape – it’s long enough to be able to indulge in relaxation but not so long that you have to plan too much.

As part of the Wellness Escape you can enjoy 3 days of intensive spa treatments that have been designed to detoxify, relax, and rejuvenate. And while you’ll be spending a lot of time being pampered, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the signature inclusions and activities at the Reef House.

Amazing experiences

For those who want to explore more of the region, there are also a variety of different activities and experiences right on your doorstep when you stay at the Reef House.

As we touched on earlier, the Reef House is located between the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest, meaning that there is a lot to be seen and to do.

From snorkelling and scubas diving to chasing waterfalls and tasting the local produce, no matter your interests, Tropical North Queensland has something you’re going to love.
