Overview

Posh casino resort with world class gaming and dining, plus a glass-domed rooftop overlooking the harbor

The Lowdown

With its creamy white exterior and unique glass-domed rooftop, the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino is one of Queensland’s most iconic hotels. Benefitting from a super-central location in downtown Cairns, with sweeping views of the ocean and marina, this five-star resort offers world class gaming, dining and lodging. The 128 guestrooms and suites are decorated in honey and chocolate tones, with private balconies and floor-to-ceiling views of the city, the pool or the serene Trinity Inlet. Try your luck at the blackjack table or at one of the 500 electronic gaming stations, then refuel at one of three restaurants. Tamarind, a wood-paneled dining room with plantation-style shutters, serves award-winning Asian fusion fare. After dinner check out the three bars on offer. There are live bands at Vertigo Bar, movie screenings at Casino Sports Arena and late night guest DJs at Velvet Underground, the resort’s own nightclub. Don’t leave without visiting the Cairns Wildlife Dome on the roof: Turtles, pythons and crocodiles are all on display at this spectacular all-weather exhibit.

In the Area

Cairn’s greatest draw is without a doubt the Great Barrier Reef. Some of the world’s best diving sites are here, of course, but for non-divers, glass-bottomed boats or semi-submarines also let you visit the dazzling marine life. Adventure sports are popular too: skydiving, bungee jumping and whitewater rafting, to name but a few. For a more tranquil experience, head north to Daintree Rainforest, the oldest surviving rain forest in the world. Arrange a daytime or nocturnal nature tour for a chance to see the flora and fauna up close.

Great hotel in Cairns

Stayed here as an Accor Platinum member in late September. Stay was great from check in to check out. All staff were friendly and couldn't help you enough.Received an upgrade to a junior suite which was great and overlooked the water. Room was spacious and as you would expect from a 5 star establishment. Breakfast was also of a very high standard in Tamarind restaurant and is as good as any Accor hotel i have stayed in. Had dinner there one night as well and again it was a great experience and good value with Accor plus card and 50% off. I have stayed in all the Accor properties in Cairns and this is easily the best. Looking forward to my next stay there at the end of the month

Have recently stayed in this wonderful hotel. The location is very good and central to all major restaurant’s and wharf activity’s. The hotel staff are excellent and the rooms themselves are very clean, modern and spacious. I would like to mention two members of staff that really stood out. Chantal at reception and Joe in the breakfast restaurant, thank you for great service.

Stayed at this very comfortable Hotel for two nights prior to a cruise on the Great Barrier Reef. My wife and I have stayed in many Hotels around the world of various standards. This without doubt has been one of the best. Rooms are very well appointed, bedding very very comfortable. We had breakfast included and it was plentiful and nothing was a bother to staff. A standout for both my wife and I was the staff. Could not do enough for us. All staff friendly and helpful especially Anne at Reception. She has been wonderful. Many thanks to all it has made a huge difference to our trip.
