The Reef House Resort & Spa is situated amongst tranquil tropical gardens and ancient towering paperbark trees. The colonial-style architecture is designed to capture the romance of the tropics and the charm of a bygone era. Candle-lit corridors and fresh white washed walls give way to three pristine pools and two spas. The award winning Reef House Restaurant offers a superb dining experience with unsurpassed ocean views, while the poolside cafe is the perfect spot to enjoy a light snack, meal, or cocktail beside the hotel’s freshwater pool, shaded by palm trees, rambling bougainvillea and a cascading waterfall.

Previously a VIP guesthouse owned by Army Brigadier David Thompson, The Reef House Resort and Spa has maintained its history and traditions throughout the years. Every evening candles are lit around the resort at sundown and guests gather to share their stories over a complimentary glass of Brigadiers Punch. The resort also boasts the only true honour bar on mainland Australia, similar to an Officers Mess from yesteryear.

Each of the 69 rooms and suites feature oversize beds draped in light muslin netting, warm teak furniture and wide verandahs to ensure guests are given an “experience”, not just a room. Some rooms also offer a private Jacuzzi and twin bedding is also available upon request.

Complimentary book and board game library and exceptional service are just some of the additional features on offer at The Reef House Resort & Spa to ensure your stay is memorable.

The resort's three pools are framed by shaded pathways and vibrant tropical flora, creating a magnificent backdrop to candle-lit corridors and white wash buildings. Take your pick from two picturesque freshwater pools, a sheltered saltwater pool or two inviting spas (one of which is heated).

Restaurants & Bars
Reef House Restaurant - set under 300 year old Melaleuca gums swaying in the sea breeze, looking out across the teak decking to the palms of the cove and the Coral Sea beyond, the restaurant features an eclectic choice of dishes from around the world - the Middle East, Southern Asia, the Mediterranean and beyond - created from the North’s unique produce and products.
Brigadiers Bar - experience the charm of yesteryear and enjoy an intimate retreat into tranquility, charmed luxury and service excellence. Candles lit at twilight announce the bar's official opening, and service of complimentary punch also commences at this time. The process is a time honoured tradition of the resort. Artefacts and books of the Brigadier's travels are also available for guests to peruse at leisure along with a library collection on books and magazines to enjoy. 
Poolside Dining - exclusive to Reef House guests, the Poolside Café is the perfect place to relax and have a casual drink or light meal. The tranquil enviroment of rainforest surrounds overlooking the freshwater pool and cascading waterfall, this is your private spot for lazing the day away in paradise.
