An all-inclusive stay at a secluded, eco-friendly resort on the untouched Whitsunday Islands, with a charming beach villa, dining perks and a spa treatment

  • A secluded private island getaway, Elysian Retreat is set along the coast of Long Island in the Whitsundays. You’ll bed down in the resort’s Oceanfront villas - pared-down thatched roof abodes that feature lush rainforest views and an enviable location on the edge of the blue waters.

  • The chef’s menu is refreshed daily, highlighting seasonal produce and fresh seafood from the Whitsunday region. The day begins with an a la carte breakfast followed by an al fresco lunch, or if you prefer, a picnic hamper. Sunset cocktails and canapes are served by the pool or bonfire followed by a three-course dinner with paired wine.

  • Jala Spa draws inspiration from Whitsunday’s tranquillity and idyllic beauty, featuring lavish spa treatments that showcase Edible Beauty and Subtle Energies organic spa products - crafted with wild botanicals of the highest quality. You can also complement your spa treatments with daily sunrise and sunset yoga sessions.

We like

Elysian Retreat makes its home on Long Island, one of 74 islands that make up the paradisal Whitsundays along Queensland’s tropical coast. To the east lies Whitsunday Island and its iconic Whitehaven Beach - a pristine, uncrowded strip of beach that stretches over seven kilometres. The island’s national park also features lush hiking trails suitable for all skill levels. Further out lies the Great Barrier Reef, one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders and an excellent destination to snorkel and scuba dive with humpback whales, dolphins, turtles and dugongs. Transport and tour arrangements to these destinations can be arranged with the resort.
