Bedarra is perfect … our number one beach resort in Australia.
Family owned with truly passionate staff, it’s extremely special. There are only ten private villas, all hidden amongst 45 hectares of tropical rainforest, offering solitude, privacy and sublime views over the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
Experiences are unique and absolutely everything you could want is included in the accommodation price which is, in itself, a unique and very relaxing aspect of this enchanting resort. Enjoy a candlelit dinner on your private beachfront deck, pack a chef-prepared gourmet hamper in your own dinghy and head for one of the nearby deserted islands or simply lie in a hammock or by the pool, helping yourself to drinks and food from the bar and kitchen. For some less sedentary activities you can kayak, paddleboard, snorkel, fish, play tennis or go boating and outer Barrier Reef trips can be arranged. Spa treatments can also be organised.
Dining is extra special, the menu exquisite and the wines beautifully complimentary.
Bedarra is 10km offshore from Mission Beach, 2 hrs drive south of Cairns.


If you feel like travelling a little further then Kokomo Private Island Fiji is the place to go! Like Bedarra, Kokomo is an all inclusive resort, but unlike Bedarra, alcohol isn’t included. However, it prides itself on guests being able to have whatever they want whenever they want … six star luxury.
Each of the 26 villas has its own private infinity pool; guests staying in residences get a private in-residence barbecue experience and have an island buggy to use throughout their stay.
Start your day with yoga or a scenic walking trail; after that the beach offers sea kayaking, catamaran sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding or paddleboarding. You can also try deep-sea fishing, surfing, sailing or scuba diving. For a rest there is Kokomo’s Yaukuve Spa Sanctuary; all guests receive a complimentary 45 minute treatment during their stay.
Kokomo Island sits on the edge of Fiji’s Kadavu Group, a cluster of unspoiled islands encircled by the Great Astrolabe Reef.
