wow wow and wow. We have just spent the most amazing time on Bedarra, with the people who know how to care and look after guests. The most amazing food and wine, the most knowledgeable individuals who are the top of the tree when dealing with 'crazy' people like me and just the most serene beaches to sit on with just the waves, sand and my chair to accompany me with a book to read. Love you all and thanks for making this journey such a healing part of my husbands life as he recovers from one hell of a year. Thank you so so much for who you all are. Judy L.

Bedarra Resort is a truly amazing sanctuary of peace, luxury and friendliness. We enjoyed a wonderful 6-night stay for the last week of June and are already planning our return. Let’s start with the journey to the island. Flying from Sydney and arriving at lunchtime, we didn’t want to miss half a day driving from Cairns to Mission Beach, so treated ourselves to the helicopter transfer from Cairns airport direct to the island on the Bedarra-branded Robinson R44. This involved a short and efficient transfer from arrivals to the heliport where we were met by our amiable pilot Roger. A military training exercise off Townsville meant that the usual flight plan south along the coast to the island was diverted seaward. This increased the flight time to 70 mins, but also meant we flew right over the spectacular blue waters and coral cays of the outer Great Barrier Reef – a great start to our holiday. Roger provided an interesting and amusing commentary throughout the flight and landed neatly on the handkerchief sized beach landing spot. We were welcomed by the lovely Katrina who quickly whisked us off to the main building where check-in comprised being seated at a patio table overlooking the channel between Bedarra and Dunk Island, 2 glasses of delicious Albarino and a lunch of local kingfish sashimi. At this point after approximately 5 minutes on the island we both agreed we had made the right choice of venue.
Our accommodation was the “Beach House” villa about 50 metres from the main building and, as the name suggests, right on the white sandy beach. The villa was 2-storeys with a king-sized bedroom and ensuite bathroom downstairs, and a large living room and balcony upstairs. The villas are very comfortable, and include a well-stocked and complimentary mini-bar. Back in the main building there is an open bar with a wide range of excellent wines, beers and spirits, but if you do want to splash out on something special, there is a separate fridge of premium champagnes and wines available for an additional charge. Every evening, one of the staff members will mix cocktails from a regularly changed menu, or whatever you ask for. I can strongly recommend Russell’s Apple Vodka Caprioska.
The range and quality of meals served was exemplary and the only negative was the daily emotional turmoil of deciding between the sumptuous courses on offer.
Food and accommodation are important ingredients to any successful vacation, but what made Bedarra far and away the best place we have stayed at was the people. A team of happy, dedicated hospitality professionals all eager to make your stay exactly what you want it to be. Special mentions go to Geoff the GM and his wonderful assistant Katrina for their warmth and humour, to Russell, Todd, and Mike for their cocktails and table service, to the hidden crew in the kitchen that kept us salivating for the whole week, and to the housekeeping army that used a combination of psychic powers and teleportation to know when to service our villa and without ever being seen or heard.
To sum up – this is a bucket-list destination – GO!

Room tip: The Beach House offered the perfect balance of proximity to the beach and the main building.

We found Bedarra as we were searching for ideal destinations for our honeymoon. After extended research (including here on Tripadvisor), we chose Bedarra Island Resort – and we cannot begin to express how unforgettable and breathtaking our stay here was. To say that Bedarra was the perfect choice for our honeymoon is a massive understatement. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with unrivaled courtesy and care. Our experience at Bedarra was more luxurious and beautiful than any destination we had ever been to before. It is a true paradise. The staff were consummate professionals and were incredibly friendly. Their attention to detail was exceptional - from gourmet dining experiences and fantastic specialty drinks served at cocktail hour, to the pristine villas and housekeepers who are stealthier than ninjas. We truly felt every staff member’s commitment to providing a luxury experience. Customization and quality are everything at Bedarra, and for us, it was absolutely the trip of a lifetime. We cannot recommend Bedarra highly enough!

We had one of the most special holidays visiting Bedarra Island Resort... what a stunning place!! All the reviews are true! We cannot thank Geoff and the team enough for going above and beyond to make my Bday celebration special - your warmth and incredible hospitality helped to make this one of the most memorable holidays we've ever had.
Also a big thanks to the team in charge of the kitchen - we loved all the flavours and were impressed by the ever changing menu and quality of food - what an absolute delight!
To say we will be back is an understatement - thanks again Martina & Anthony xxx

From the minute you book until you return to the mainland there is nothing to fault with Bedarra. The only thing better than the Location, Villa's, Dining and Wines is the Staff, they are the best. Our Pandanus Villa just metres from the beach was ideal, a 2 minute stroll to the Resort amenities and to hear the waves collapsing on the shore. We did a week of nothing - if you call eating great food and drinking fantastic wines doing nothing - and it was our best holiday ever.

Room tip: All of the rooms are secluded, talk to the Resort and tell them your requirements and they will advise you of the most suitable Villa.
