Hamilton Island bungalow description

Palm Bay Resort is an intimate private tropical rainforrest paradise nestled in a protected Palm fringed Bay on Long Island in the Whitsunday Island group.

The Whitsunday Island Group is the Jewel in the Australian tourism crown.
Located around latitude 20 degrees South in the Azure Blue Coral Sea, protected from the Pacific Ocean swells by the stunning Great Barrier Reef and with a tropical climate suitable for year round swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and water sports.

Long Island lies mid way between Shute Harbour on the Australian mainland and Hamilton Island and is just a short distance from the world renowned Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island and well know resorts of Hayman, Daydream, Lindeman and Brampton Islands.

Access is available only by boat or helicopter.
The Bay has mooring availability for cruising yachts and pleasure craft.

Previously an exclusive 5 star resort comprising just 21 absolute beach front Bungalows with views over the Coral Sea and facilities including resort style pool, spa, tennis court, kayaks, fishing gear, TV room, library and a large lounge/dining area with an open fireplace for that cosy winter experience.

Palm Bay Resort is now under owner management and is offering a unique acommodation experience without the expensive price tag.

Ever found that your resort dining and beverage bill far exceeds your accommodation costs and blows out the holiday budget?

At Palm Bay Resort we are offering a BYO and DIY experience - you bring your own beverages and food and prepare and cook it the way you prefer.
We will provide all the refridgeration, cooking facilities, crockery, cutlery and utensils you will need.

All you pay is your accommodation on your Bungalow.

Your Bungalow is air conditioned, has celing fans and comes equipped with fresh linen, towels and toiletries.
It has a kitchenette with bar fridge, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, coffee pod machine, stainless sink and all the crockery and cutlery you will need for an intimate breakfast before a lazy morning in the hammock on your balcony.

You are free to take advantage of all the resort facilities at any time but we ask that you take full responsibility for your actions at all times to ensure your own safety and the quiet enjoyment of the resort by others.
Of course, depending upon the time of year, you may be the only guests on the Island.

Children are welcome but as the Bungalows are designed for only 2 persons, and to enhance your holiday enjoyment we recommend that you book additional units for your children over 15 years.

Where younger children are required to stay in the same bungalow with the parents, this will incur an additional charge of $30 per additional bad. (maximum 2 beds).

Children staying at the resort are under the full responsibility of the their parents.

The resort has a full time live-in caretaker to attand to any maintenance or repair issues and he can assist you with other needs where possible.
He also runs a small store with non perishable groceries, assorted drinks and a selection of frozen food available 24/7.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              Palm Bay Hideaway is an intimate private tropical rainforrest paradise nestled in a protected Palm fringed Bay on Long Island in the Whitsunday Island group.

                              The Whitsunday Island Group is the Jewel in the Australian tourism crown.

                              Located around latitude 20 degrees South in the Azure Blue Coral Sea, protected from the Pacific Ocean swells by the stunning Great Barrier Reef and with a tropical climate suitable for year round swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and water sports.

                              Long Island lies mid way between Shute Harbour on the Australian mainland and Hamilton Island and is just a short distance from the world renowned Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island and well know resorts of Hayman, Daydream, Lindeman and Brampton Islands.

                              Previously an exclusive 5 star resort comprising just 21 absolute beach front Balinese inspired Bungalows with views over the Coral Sea and facilities including resort style pool, spa, tennis court, kayaks, TV room, library and a large lounge/dining area with an open fireplace for that cosy winter experience.

                              Palm Bay Resort is now under owner management and is offering a unique acommodation experience without the expensive price tag.

                              Ever found that your resort dining and beverage bill exceeded your accommodation costs and blew out the holiday budget?

                              At Palm Bay Resort we are offering a BYO and DIY experience - you bring your own beverages and food and prepare and cook it the way you prefer.

                              We will provide all the refridgeration, cooking facilities, crockery, cutlery and utensils you will need.

                              All you pay is the accommodation tariff on your Bungalow.

                              Your Bungalow is air conditioned, has celing fans and comes equipped with fresh linen, towels and toiletries. It also has a kitchenette with bar fridge, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, coffee pod machine, stainless sink and all the crockery and cutlery you will need for an intimate breakfast before a lazy morning in the hammock on your balcony.

                              You are free to take advantage of all the resort facilities at any time but we ask that you take full responsibility for your actions at all times to ensure your own safety and the quiet enjoyment of the resort by others.

                              Of course, depending upon the time of year, you may be the only guests on the Island.

                              Children are welcome but as the Bungalows are designed for only 2 persons, and to enhance your holiday enjoyment we recommend that you book additional units for children over 15 years.

                              Where younger children are required to stay in the same bungalow with the parents, this will incur an additional charge of $30 per additional bed. (maximum 2 additional beds).

                              Children staying at the resort are the sole responsibility of the their parents/guardians at all times.

                              The resort has a full time live-in caretaker to attand to any maintenance or repair issues and he can assist you with other needs and ferry transfers where possible.

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: I am the owner of a beautiful beach front Bungalow at Palm Bay Resort - my tropical Island dream and the best kept secret in the Whitsundays.

David Johnston 0410 645 648

                              Why the Owner Chose Hamilton Island:
                              In 2000 I was on a sailing holiday around the Whitsundays and fell in love with the place. I moved here in 2002 and bought and lived in properties in Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island. In 2004 I discovered Palm Bay. It was what I had day-dreamed so many times as my ultimate tropical Island retreat for retirement. I am now living that dream. Everyone who comes to stay or to visit falls in love with Palm Bay - the lush green tropical gardens, the spacious Balinese inspired absolute beach front bungalows, the serenity, butterflies, birdlife and the almost tame wildlife.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                              Access is by ferry, boat or helicopter. www.cruisewhitsundays.com operate the ferry service and provide a number of tours and cruises for snorkeling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven beach.
