Hamilton Island in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef can’t go wrong with a
stay at the full-service Reef View Hotel
The four-star property is centrally located on Hamilton Island – the only island in the Whitsundays with a commercial jet airport, easily reachable with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns.
Each of the hotel’s 364 well-appointed rooms includes a furnished private balcony that overlooks either the beautifully landscaped gardens or the spectacular Coral Sea. Extra space for families can be found in the Family Rooms, which include a room with two queen-size beds along with a connecting junior room with two single beds.
Hotel amenities include beach access, a swimming pool, day spa, fitness center, tennis and squash courts and the use of watersports equipment like catamarans, paddle skis, windsurfers and snorkeling equipment.
Value-priced packages that include adventures such as dive trips, golf excursions, spa services, a romantic sail and an island dine-around tour are also available. Guests who book suites (many of which are two stories tall) also receive complimentary daily breakfast, a newspaper and round trip airport or marina transfers.
