More Amazing Surprises in the Top Cairns Couples Retreat

On top of that, its location boasts some of the most beautiful waterfalls, nature trails and rock-pools in Australia. Book now, and wake up to the sounds of the rainforest every morning on your next holiday.

There is an incredible selection of activities to enjoy in easy reach of our Wanggulay rainforest retreat as a couple. Many of our guests check these out before arrival. Then on entering Wanggulay, they just want to stay in the property and relax on the expansive balconies and private river platform, or by the infinity edge pool where you can take in the delights of a holiday in the rainforest.

There are actually two romantic couple’s retreats for Port Douglas and Cairns holidaymakers. They are at the end of a quiet suburban street on the edge of unspoiled rainforest. This has grown back to the extent they are totally private when viewed from the road. The only signs of habitation are semi-obscured driveways and meandering foot paths.

Stay in the Luxury Accommodation Cairns Rates Tops

One of the great joys of visiting Australia is it is such a democratic place compared to European nations who seem stuck in tradition. We believe people should be free to do their own thing. If all you need is a deliciously large upstairs double bedroom with french doors opening out onto an exclusive wooden deck who are we to argue. In our DIY nation, we would not dream of charging you for bedrooms you don’t use.

You are, of course free to explore the rest of the house, revel in cathedral-size living space with state-of-art entertainment, and cook the meal of a lifetime in a kitchen that deserves mention in a glossy magazine. Depending on how you like to bathe, we have an indoor spa bath, an infinity pool in a private garden, and an old-fashioned free standing bath by the river where nobody goes. All you need bring is the champagne and we will include the first bottle!

There Is So Much to Do Near Our Couples Retreat

After you have chilled out you will want to explore the pristine forest at the bottom of the garden. The only permanent inhabitants are fruit doves warbling in the trees, singing cicadas, and butterflies fluttering by among the flowers. Our guests tell us we are the finest couples retreat Cairns has on offer. This may have something to do with a rainforest waterfall cum dip pool a ten-minute walk from the front door. There is much to see and do a short distance from us. Would you like to know more?

Take an Amazing Trip to Historic Kuranda Village in the Mountains

Kuranda village is the best place to head for first, because it provides a combination of wonderful attractions and untouched natural beauty. It is also ‘old’ by Australian standards with tourists visiting it for just over a century. The magnificent Barron Waterfall is a sight to behold. Unbelievably, the same water flows past nearby our luxurious couples’ accommodation. Cairns and Wanggulay make perfect partners!

You will just love the hippy vibes at the Kuranda Original Market, although the place has become swanky with galleries and specialty shops. The restaurants and sidewalk cafés are divine. Do make time to pop by the famous koala garden and reptile park, butterfly park and bird aviary. The fossil museum is another must-do.

There are two ways to get there. Catch a retro train ride past steep cliffs, ancient forest giants and thundering waterfalls close enough to splash the windows: Or fly up in a cable way gondola, and explore the wonders of the forest with your eyes. We suggest taking the railway up and the sky way down, to afford dramatic views of the magnificent Great Barrier Reef stretching out far beyond.

Revel in Glorious Nature in the Great Australian Outdoors

Cairns is on a coastal plateau nestling between the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea, and the Cairns tableland inland. We recommend visiting the highland area first, because you can gaze down over Cairns, get your bearings, and perhaps even spot your exclusive getaway. Cairns rainforests do grow tall and we cannot guarantee that though.

Which Couples Retreat are You Going to Choose for Your Holiday?

Let’s put the Great Barrier Reef on hold for just a moment. We are itching to tell you more about our two romantic getaways in Cairns. The couples accommodation Port Douglas agents advertise is not a patch on us, because we owner-manage our places personally.

The day room at Wanggulay Bali is a fusion of exotic Balinese furniture, polished hardwood, open cathedral ceiling, natural textures, handsome statues and genuine Persian rugs. Step outside onto the generous balcony and birds are singing out from trees you could almost reach out and touch. Did we mention, if you have a family petthey are welcome too?

The master bedroom in this top-end couples retreat connects to the deck through French doors, but has modern, stylish private facilities to tempt you to stay awhile. If you can’t make your mind up you can choose between an indoor spa bath and a rimless pool in the garden at the far end of a bridge. If you think this sounds like heaven, Wanggulay definitely is, and wait until you see the magnificent kitchen.

We call our second couples retreat in Cairns Wanggulay Too because it is more of the same but with a few extra tweaks for couples.Our luxury accommodation Cairns cannot stop talking about has a lovers’ nest on the lower level. This has a huge bed to loll about all day watching favourite movies, a designer bathroom, and a private living area with spa bath.

If you are feeling adventurous,why not stroll down to the riverbank one evening, and fill the antique bath with hot water and your favourite bath salts. During the day, you may decide to move to the upper deck, where amazing living space and an ultimate kitchen will amaze you. Put simply, we knock the spots off any partners luxury accommodation Port Douglas ever had.

Let’s Talk About the Great Barrier Reef and its Endless Pleasures

The Great Barrier Reef contains an abundance of marine life that richly deserves the title of the world’s greatest natural attraction. Part of the excitement is deciding how to visit it from the shore. Will you travel languidly by yacht, dash across in a high-speed catamaran, or land dramatically on an island in a helicopter?

Once there you can explore nature’s treasures in many different ways depending on your preference. Scuba hire and scuba lessons could change your life, but most of our guests float gently on the surface with goggles, breathing pipes and flippers. If you do not feel like putting on a swimsuit and getting wet, laze in a glass-bottom boat instead and the let the marine life visit you.


End Each Day with a Fabulous Meal Out or Cook In On the Deck

After a fun-filled day exploring Kuranda, the Cairns Great Barrier Reef, and all the other wonderful things we have to see and do, you will feel like supper before retiring to your romantic Cairns dream for the best sleep you ever had. You will find a wealth of choices in our holiday paradise beside the romantic Coral Sea.

We will tell you which restaurants and take-outs are the hottest when you visit us – unless, of course, you choose to barbeque Australia’s best steaks, or tasty fillets of wild-caught barramundi, coral trout, or snapper fish on the deck. Our paradise for couples is for you to enjoy,the way you like. See you soon!
