Overview

Easy luxury in tropical Palm Cove, a jumping off point for the Great Barrier Reef

The Lowdown

Flexibility is the key at Pullman’s Palm Cove Sea Temple resort; guests can choose from straightforward studio rooms or apartments with self-catering facilities and up to three bedrooms, all hewn in a palette of soothing white and beige. Indoor-outdoor living is central to the experience in tropical northern Queensland, so there are plenty of private and public spaces to lounge in the sun or shade. Diners can indulge in contemporary Aussie cuisine at Temple of Tastes restaurant or more casual fare, poolside, at The Lagoon Bar. Palm Cove’s extravagant natural beauty is on display just steps away on the wide sandy beach.

In the Area

Eco-adventurers head to Queensland for its rugged tropical beauty, rich Aboriginal history, and to explore the jewel in its crown, the Great Barrier Reef. Palm Cove, a hamlet filled with resorts that’s a half an hour outside of Cairns, boasts a splendid beach, with stunning Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest nearby. For an encounter with the local wildlife, check out Crocodile Adventures, where fearless visitors can check out the native predators from a series of boardwalks that wind over a lagoon and through the jungle.

Wedding venue
Reviewed 5 days ago

We held our wedding and reception at the PULLMAN Palm Cove and can not fault it. From our initial contact with their events co ordinator Rachel Prince our wedding ran smoothly and stress free from start to finish. Her contact through out the process and booking of family and friends at the venue was faultless and the service was exceptional. We had the private beach for our ceremony and our reception at the Terrace bar. The food was amazing and all of our guests commented on how lovely the staff were from reception, waiters and even the cleaners. Our day ran smoothly thanks to the staffs organisational skills and professionalism. We could not recommend the venue and location highly enough. Our room was amazing and we will definitely return to the venue for future anniversaries. 10/10!

Loved it!!

Absolutely gorgeous resort! We had a two bedroom apartment on level two. This resort is made up of two wings, and I believe there are permanent residents in the third wing that faves the beach. All balconies face in towards the pools, of which are lagoon style and one smaller style near the poolside bar and cafe area. Great cocktail list at the posies cafe area along with a fairly extensive lunch menu that you can order from and eat poolside. Temple of Tastes restaurant on site, near the lobby.
Twenty four hour front desk which is comforting. All staff, and I mean absolutely ALL we encountered were amazingly polite and efficient and nothin was too much trouble for them.
Location is at the end of Williams Esplanade, within easy strolling distance of the all the shops, cafes and restaurants.
As an aside, Palm Cove was hosting the Ironman event while we where there and everything was beautifully organised.
Our apartment was very well maintained and clean. Bathrooms extremely spacious (and I mean EXTREMELY!!) and the bedrooms also a very good size. The couches were comfortable and enough for us and the apartment was large and included the living area, large dining table for six and a fully equipped (and clean!) kitchen. We especially liked the oversized balcony (no poky balcony here!) and the fact you could draw the plantation shutters around the entire balcony for some privacy (or if you wanted the lounge room area extended out!).
Breakfast buffet was $36 and excellent value. Continental and cooked breakfast included. Great fare and well worth the price.
The grounds and common areas where beautifully maintained and you can tell that care goes into this. It’s a beautiful resort.
Beach access right from the pool area (although this beach is rather windy and constantly has waves which churns up the sand which makes it easy for crocodiles to hide therefore we have never had a swim in this beach in the fifteen or so times we have visited Palm Cove.
All in all, we loved this resort and will be back. Thank you! 🏝

Pure treasure - Excellent Platinum treatment
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I have been at the hotel for only two nights, but it was an excellent experience. A very nice upgrade, appropriate welcome gift and all other Platinum benefits granted. It was my utmost pleasure to eat at the hotel restaurant - the service was exceptional, food very tasty and reasonably priced. I liked the cocktails too! Very nice pool and a convenient direct access to the beach. The room was just amazing - I would like to be back for my birthday in September with my friends as they are all excited to stay at the Pullman

Loved it here.

Great family place we had two bedroom penthouse and two bedroom apartments.
Pools fantastic for kids, staff outstanding whole vibe at the resort great no need to leave there, but if you do it’s just a shorts walk to shops and great restaurants. Highly recommend for a family holiday.

Impressive Wedding Options

I recently attended their wedding open day for a friends venue consideration and was blown away. The backdrop of the ocean and stunning table setting themes were nothing I had come across before, just stunning! They seem to work alongside the best suppliers this region has to offer and when discussing my girlfriends ‘vision’, was able to incorporate all she had dreamt of. Can’t wait for the hens night stay the night before!
