2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
GreenLeaders Platinum level
Nestled amongst a backdrop of secluded hidden bays, majestic granite boulders, white sandy beaches, and towering coconut Bedarra Island is the ultimate definition of barefoot luxury. With just seven private villas, each with uninterrupted ocean views, this all inclusive sustainable island resort will ensure you find yourself in a sanctuary of complete solace and seclusion as you explore the tropical rainforest, beautiful beaches and fringing reefs. Our Executive Chef prepares gourmet meals daily and local produce and tropical fruits are a feature of our ever changing menu. The open terrace restaurant, bar and lounge are the heart and soul of Bedarra, where guests converge over a delicious and ever-changing menu, or to indulge at the legendary open bar. An exquisite menu is matched only by the sublime beauty of deserted beaches fringed by lush rainforest. Find your own table for two on the pool deck or terrace for an intimate dining experience or join the Long Table for a dinner party style congregation with your fellow guests and resort host.Although our ethos remains centred on relaxation, we do offer a number of less sedentary activities including kayaking, stand up paddle boards, snorkelling, fishing, tennis and self-guided interactive walks through the verdant rainforest. For the more adventurous and at an additional fee we can arrange deep sea fishing, scuba-diving, and scenic helicopter flights. We pride ourselves on offering each guest a unique experience. Whether it be a candlelit dinner for two on our private deck under the starry night, packing a gourmet hamper in your own dinghy for a romantic picnic on one of the nearby deserted islands, or booking the entire resort with a group of friends or family for a bespoke tropical island experience you will remember forever. Bedarra is situated seven kilometres off the coast of Mission Beach, Tropical North Queensland (approximately 140km south of Cairns). Scenic 35 minute heli-transfers are available from Cairns airport directly to our beachside heli-pad. Alternatively road transfers from Cairns take approximately two hours connecting with twice daily water taxi transfers from Mission Beach to Bedarra.

this is a 24/7 food and wine orgy !!! i simply cannot tell you how much i enjoyed myself. not a morsel was left untouched, nor a bottle left unopened. every mouthful a sheer delight. every breakfast, lunch and dinner to be worshipped and committed to the Holiday Food Bible. from the sensational smiling staff to the perfect paradise pavillion and the fabulous fantastic food, four nights flew by. Big thank you to Leah, Jessica, Andy and Lance for making it fun. We went to Mad Baker on the way home !!!!! 25 stars out of 5 !

What an amazing place and staffed by some of the loveliest people you are ever likely to meet. The food is definitely a big part of the experience and you won't be disappointed. Probably the highlight for us was taking a dingy to our very own deserted island on our anniversary day with a delicious food hamper prepared for us with a nice bottle of wine to share. We are already making plans for another visit soon.

Honestly thought the main part of this holiday was the villas and beach but we loved the food & service the most. Jessica, Lance, Leah, Andy, Scott & Nick are really excellent at providing the ultimate food experience & the kitchen staff is where food Godlyness is created with Heath, Lisa, Jaffa and victor being great at what they do. Geoffrey is a great host and we can’t wait to get back there soon !

This was our second trip to Bedarra. We had 2 villas - one for us and one for our adult daughters. It is a truly indulgent experience. I am sure we took several of the same photos day after day - it is all so picturesque. It is as you would imagine a deserted island .... but then there's delicious food, drinks and fun activities. We swam, did stand up paddle boarding, went in the canoes, played tennis, basketball, went hiking, used the dinghies and used the gym! It was soo relaxing too - enjoying a nap after lunch every day. The outdoor bath and shower are a hit too! We had glorious weather and are looking forward to a return trip next year.

Bedarra is the perfect honeymoon destination for those wanting ultimate relaxation, personalised service and 5-star food & drinks. We realised the reason we loved it so much was after all the decisions and planning for the wedding, the team at Bedarra take the hassle of making more decisions away. Each day we were recommended with what to do, what to do drink and what to eat. And we loved all their suggestions! It was so refreshing not to have to think, but were able to sit back, relax and enjoy it all. It exceeded our expectations and the friendly staff made the stay so special - Leah, Andy, Nick, Jess, Scott, Geoffrey and Lance. We can't recommend this place highly enough and are already planning our anniversary trip back! I've read other reviews about food portion - every day there are 3 x3 course chef prepared meals and you're allowed open access to the pantry and bar so decide for yourself....
