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
We had a fantastic stay. Thank you to all the staff who looked after us, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Kazumi (reception) and Samuel (Lagoon Bar, even though it was pretty busy).
First time in the Pullman and we are won over. The hotel is on a grand scale and the landscaping is so tropical, definately gets a five star rating from us. We stayed in a studio room which was clean and functional, not five star though as it lacked the extra fine touches we normally get in a five star hotel. The bathroom was ultra clean and the shower strong even though it was in the bath. We had a study desk with chair but sadly no power points nearby. The balcony was generous but lacked a fan which meant it was too hot in the middle of the day. The bed was comfortable and we slept well on both nights. There is a small bar fridge with a limited offering and at inflated prices which is usual. However the staff were a stand out for us. Always friendly and helpful, especially at breakfast where nothing was too much trouble. We parked our hire car downstairs at no cost and the lift was clean and swift. We did have some trouble finding the entrance as when we drove down Triton street we came to a roundabout with a dead end sign, not realising that the hotel entrance was down this road. Location is fabulous as you can walk to the esplanade with restaurants and shops within minutes. Having said that, why bypass the Temple of Taste restaurant onsite as we thought it was the best in Palm Cove. Love the hotel, the ambience and the staff.
Absolutely loved our stay at this resort. Beautiful rims, very spacious with lovely bathrooms. Very peaceful with fantastic beach access, very well located to get to attractions. Special mention to Max in reception and Joy in the lagoon bar, exceptional service. Will be back!
