WHY is it Paradise and great value? Well.....
It was NOT the food fit for a king
It was NOT the constant care to every detail It was NOT the location on the island
It was NOT waking up with the view from the bungalow
It was NOT the fact there were no kids
It was NOT the warm sea air
It was NOT the warm friendly staff
It was NOT the boat trips out to wonderful beaches
It was NOT the time you have to do NOTHING!
It was NOT the lovely gifts on Pips bed each day
It was NOT absence of everything electronic that has become the "bane of our existence"
It was NOT the evening filled with cocktails, wine and good company
It was NOT...............
So what was it?
IT WAS..... the calculated balance of all of the above
Thanks to all the staff, missing you all as I sit here at my desk trying to work out how I am going to justify the budget to come back next year.
We have to come back as I don't know where we will find another holiday experience quite the same, truly unique.

We loved the intimacy of Paradise Bay, it is a small resort and the friendliness and the "nothings to much trouble" attitude of the young people running the resort makes you feel very special, from the moment you come to breakfast to the time you go to bed at night they do everything to make your stay memorable. When you come to dinner you are greeted with cocktails and canopies, followed by what could only be described as a 5 star dinner experience, the set menu changes every night and is match to quality wines. You can go sailing on the resorts on yacht to White Haven beach or to some of the other islands in to Whitsundays. We just loved our stay here and hated to leave. When we left they came came and seen us of personally and packed a lunch for us to take with us.

This is the best holiday we've had in Australia. Apart from being located at one of the most desired places in the world, what really makes this place feel like paradise are the staff. The level of service and care provided is amazing. Every detail is taken care of and you're are treated like royalty.

This escape made us feel extremely happy and relaxed. The hardest part was saying goodbye to the incredible staff and beauty of the place.

It's extremely sad to think that Paradise Bay may close by the end of February 2012. I truly hope this piece of paradise and wonderful staff continue to open its doors for many years to come.

dining is 5 star, canopies, entree, mains and desserts - starting with a homemade cocktail - brilliant!...
then there is the catamaran or Speed boat to take you each day to a different destination - white haven beach, sth mole island, hiking, snorkeling - some great spots with plenty of fish, coral and views.
there are only ten bungalows each very private with bay views, and ensuite and a big comfy bed!
the staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble.

oh and the friends you meet whilst doing all this - again brilliant! ...

the other side of the coin it can get a little warm and there are mozzies..

they supply it all , sunscreen, mozzie repellent , moisturizer, fins, snorkels, food and wine ... also kayaking

Room Tip: probably rooms no.5 - 10 have a little more privacy but its all good

My fiance and I had the most incredible time here, I would actually call it an 'experience' and not just a holiday. It was as relaxing as a health retreat, as beautiful as anywhere in the world, and the staff are just divine - nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing and the atmosphere relaxed; the bed one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in! We felt spoiled from the moment we arrived, and ended up getting engaged on our trip.

I am so sad to hear that Paradise Bay has gone into receivership, as I was hoping we could spend our honeymoon here!

The only gamble with retreats where meals are served in communal dining rooms and activities are spent with these same people is that every now and then you can come across some really unpleasant people - and there is no escaping them!
