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.
How to Get There
Quite, and what an amazing hotel, used the restaurant last night and had great food with Tuna and Snapper. Staying in a large apartment overlooking the amazing pools and hardly a sole to be seen, just perfect.
A night out for my wife’s birthday ,started out well,with a complimentary drink ,thank you.
The resort is definitely looking it’s age with some maintenance needing to be done in the public areas.
Out door seating was dirty and mouldy cushions ( yes I accept it is part of the tropical living) but to have bird dropping on the cushions as well is totally unacceptable .
The room was partially refurbished with new bathroom ,but the rest was still original,with a TV no bigger than a computer monitor and needing a science degree to operate the remote.
Bed was very comfortable,but the patio area and sliding Louvres where full of rubbish obviously not having seen a cleaner for some time.
Time for dinner.
A great menu with wine pairings .
Entree of duck dumplings was delicious and the main course of kangaroo ( which had rave reviews) was a disaster being served cold and unedible .
My wife’s main of pork was the same .
The waiter a very large man who sweated a lot ,had zero knowledge of a wine I wanted information on.
Very disappointed in the dinner .
Breakfast was nice but also served cold .
Accor needs to have a close look at this operation if it is to maintain its quality brand .
Great resort , great facilities, great pools x3.
This resort is great for families, singles or couples, I noticed a group of 15 also at the resort dinner sitting.
Restaurants are great, clean open and spacious. The staff in both restaurants were fantastic, only too happy to assist where they can.
There are two bars one pool side and the other attached to the restaurant.
There are rooms that have direct pool access, private pool apartments and penthouse suites with jacuzzi. Stand king room also has a spa bath.
I would recommend this Pullman highly to all , in particular families with kids as the pools are ideal for them , also there is plenty of seating and tables around the pool areas.
There is also direct beach access from the resort!
A short 20min walking distance to street restaurants and other dining venues.
I will be back to re-visit again.
The Pullman Palm Cove Sea Temple resort & spa - is by far the best hotel i have ever had the pleasure of staying.
The rooms are exceptionally spacious and tidy, the bathroom is spacious and clean and the bed is extremely comfortable.
The staff and service are polite & so very helpful!
i honestly could not recommend this hotel any more highly- we will never stay anywhere other than this resort for future trips.
From Check In, everybody in this resort knows how to make you feel special! All staff members were smiling, kind and helpful. The room was tastefully decorated, spacious, incredibly clean, soundproof windows (this was amazing as we have a 5 months old baby and were worry about it), and it basically has everything you need! The beds are comfy, the Spa staff was amazing as well, not to mention how the five-star dinner we had at the hotel restaurant!! Our room had a second storey with a BBQ and a spa overlooking the palm trees and the pool. Our family had an amazing time and we're thankful for the happy memories. Thank you so much!
