We offer Ocean view rooms, Apartments, Studio and Ocean Twin rooms for overnight, weekend, weekly or more, set amongst acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and breath taking views.

We were able to select our choice of room and were not disappointed. We stay here every time we go to Bowen and the Whitsunday Sands Resort has everything we need. Great quality reception, rooms and the location is breathtaking.

Lovely resort walking distance from great beaches, coffee and restaurants. King apartment is separated from other rooms and private however guests walk past out the front so will need to keep blinds down if you want privacy, despite the great views! Clean with everything you need! Wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights.

I stayed here for three nights in February 2021 on an impromptu road trip and was very taken with both Bowen and the resort. Horseshoe Bay is beautiful and the resort is perfectly located to appreciate it. Very happy with friendly staff, comfortable and clean accommodation and particularly impressed with the beautiful and well-kept gardens. I’d stay here again.

Our 1 bedroom apartment was very spacious, private, full kitchen and views in both direction to the ocean. Management are very welcoming and made it a wonderful holiday. Short walk to multiple beaches and restaurants. Loved our stay and will be back soon!
