Spa did you say? Wanggulay has that too – it’s a luxurious indoor spa to enjoy as a couple or with the whole family. 

  • World Class Technology

    Wanggulay has all the modern technology you’ve come to expect in a 5 star hotel – even though it’s in the middle of the rainforest! Wow. 

    A 53” flat screen TV, Netflix, Apple TV and all the latest DVDs are at your fingertips at no extra charge, so the kids are happy, you’re happy, and you can focus on total relaxation. Or perhaps you just want a romantic night in watching your favourite movie together.

    We’ve also got free, unlimited fast wifi. We don’t recommend it, but if you really have to check that email, or do a day’s work here or there, you can.

    There’s also a sound system with docking facility so you can listen to all your favourite music. 

  • Food Lovers Paradise

    While there are many local restaurants to enjoy nearby, if you’re a foodie, or have a family to entertain, the big advantage of staying at Wanggulay is its kitchen. Whether it be breakfast in bed, a BBQ on the balcony overlooking the rainforest, or a gourmet feast for 20, our kitchen is equipped with the very best appliances and gadgets for you to impress. If you love coffee, come prepared to have it whatever way you like with our coffee machine and pods; plunger; or stove top espresso coffee maker. There’s also a fruit juicer for those who love to be healthy or get that extra nutrition into the children in a fun way.

    The 6 Burner Stainless Steel Barbecue on the balcony takes the stress out of cooking for large and hungry crowds. Enjoy balcony and pool-side dining in your own private home.

  • Child Friendly Features

    We understand families, so if you are coming to Wanggulay with small or big kids, we’re as child-friendly as they come! We have a cot, high chair and can install safety rails on request – after all – just because they’re little certainly doesn’t mean they should miss out on the amazing experiences this accommodation has to offer!

    We also have books and board games for the kids and whole family to enjoy together.

  • World Heritage Listed Rainforest

    Cairns luxury accommodation features: World heritage listed rainforest. This is a feature that most 5 start luxury accommodations don’t have – and Wanggulay is incomplete without.

    Surrounded by water and world heritage listed rainforest, the accommodation blurs the line between inside and out. You are perfectly placed to walk the trails of the National Park, canoe the Barron River Gorge, swim in natural waterfalls, or simply relax on the balconies and private platform overlooking the river. And yet it’s 15 minutes from Cairns and close enough to visit the Great Barrier Reef or enjoy a sunset walk on nearby Palm Cove beach.

    From the river viewing platform at Wanggulay we’ve spotted platypus and turtles.
