Travellers' Choice
At Freedom Shores visitors can stay in a Boat Bungalow or Resort Suite, dine at the award winning Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill with a great selection of craft beers and boutique wines, enjoy a menu developed by our inspired Head Chef Zibby Deca, or just soak in the view of the water’s edge with a cocktail in hand and a moment of relaxation. Freedom Shores resort captures the natural surrounds of the ocean and lush Whitsunday tropical forests. Set in a hidden valley close to Airlie Beach, the destination provides various unique accommodation options from a converted boat, bespoke boat bungalow accommodation, through to well-appointed Resort Suites. The extensive landscaped gardens have pockets of peace, there is stunning craftsmanship found in all the buildings, and Freedom Shores offers service from highly experienced and knowledgeable staff. The venue is also poplar as an event destination.

I love this place. The rooms are cumfy clean and have great air-conditioning for those super hot days. The team at the concierge desk are always friendly and helpful and the stunning back drop of the ocean and islands leave you feeling revitalised. On the plus side your only a 1 min walk away from Northerlies and fantastic bar and resturant. Treat youself to this amazing resort you will not be disappointed.

This place was absolutely magical. Literally from the moment we arrived we loved every bit of it. Absolutely stunning views. Beautiful southeasterly breeze whilst sitting either on the beautiful deck of our own amazing boat (cabin), up on the pool or on the gorgeous couches in the reception area. Every part of this place was lovely. The gardens are beautifully looked after. The cabins had the best views and were super clean. I loved all the little thoughts, umbrellas, bug spray, great mini bar selection. The breakfast was perfect, loved the variety and little daily surprises salmon crepe or berry pancakes. It is super close to the northerlies restaurant which we went to a few times but we were also able to get the free shuttle bus into Airlie which was super handy 15 minutes up the road. I have to say that every single staff member was beyond lovely, not forced or over the top but appeared genuinely happy and friendly. I didn’t catch his name but the property manager was just so hospitable and naturally engaging. He has to be one of the loveliest hosts I have met in my travels. I can not recommend this place more highly, perfect to get away from all the busy rigmarole and just chill.

Can not praise this resort enough. The property grounds are spectacular, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the rooms are spacious, boast picturesque view and are well cleaned and maintained. I rarely write reviews but really wanted to take the time and give this place appreciation for the wonderful stay and experience my family was awarded. Would absolutely love to stay here again in the future.

Upon arrival the staff were amazing super friendly and helpful. The facilities are all new and the view is breath taking. It’s a quite hide away perfect for any relaxing getaway for any people or person. The restaurant is 200m walk away and we can’t fault the food, so good we tried everything on the menu Atleast once….The octopus salad was our favourite! If we had any negatives is that maybe there could be some hooks on the walls to hand bags, towels, hats or cloths. Also the wifi connection in the rooms is such low frequency you can’t watch Netflix. Suggestion would be maybe a barbecue area somewhere around the beautiful pool and deck area. Would be nice to to have the option of being able to make your own food at some point… although we can’t fault the food at the restaurant it does become quite costly eating out lunch and dinner every night for a week. Special shout out to Analyse who went above and beyond to help organise transport and breakfast and towels etc she did everything to ensure we were always taken care of. We will happily return!

This has to be hands down the best hospitality in Queensland! We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Freedom Shores. From providing pointers to the baker in town to cater for my birthday cake, to the excellent communication before we even arrived including a detailed map and instructions. The service was superb. The rooms were clean, with daily housekeeping, well maintained and very comfortable. Northerlies and the Moon Bar were great and the food was delicious. The pool was amazing! We really appreciated the ride to pick up our lunch and pool cocktails. There is a courtesy bus which is a great way to get around Airlie Beach. The breakfast was delicious, the location is stunning! It's private and surreal. Thank you so much to Annelise who went above and beyond in helping us with everything including our breakfast and at check out. I have never come across such hospitality. I would highly recommend a stay here. What a start to the year! we can’t wait to be back and to see this wonderful team again!

We recently stayed for 4 nights in a boat bungalow and would thoroughly recommend this resort. The location is quiet and peaceful and the amenities are fabulous for a break away. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast is fresh and delicious, with an excellent variety. The free shuttle service into town was a great service and available as needed.

We absolutely loved our stay. We stayed in one of the boats, which was super cute, very comfortable and an excellent use of space. The accommodation was very clean as well. Everyone we spoke to was extremely friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was fresh and delicious, and you can choose to eat it by the pool or back at your room. We loved the pool area as well. It’s handy having a restaurant on site as well… Great food at Northerlies. We will definitely stay here next time we visit this area. Thanks for an awesome stay!

My husband and I recently spent four nights at Freedom Shores and we could not recommend it more! The location is stunning (epic views!), it’s private and serene, and the perfect place to take a break from the daily grind. A special shout-out to Annelise who went above and beyond to ensure we had the best time. I have never come across such friendly and helpful staff, highly recommend a stay here if you’re in the area!
