Reefsuites Underwater Hotel

If you are a big fan of the ocean, the life beneath waters, overwater bungalows, and cruising, then you must definitely give Reefsuites a try. Take the fast boat through the Whitsunday Islands to Hardy Reef to start the tour. Guests can swim, snorkel, dive, or take a spectacular helicopter tour to see the iconic Heart Reef. After mid-afternoon, day visitors depart, leaving Hardy Reef and Reefworld exclusively for overnight visitors. With a drink in hand, take in a breathtaking sunset before sitting down to starlit long table dinner on the upper deck of the boat. Reefsuite visitors can retire to their private underwater residences after dinner. Watch the life underwater via the floor-to-ceiling windows as you sit back and relax. Reefsuites give a whole new meaning to “a room with a view” and you’ll awake to see the marine life going about another day on the world-heritage-listed reef they call home. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and an exclusive morning on the reef before heading home in the afternoon with memories that will stay with you forever.
