Affordable Luxury Accommodation in Tropical Airlie Beach

in Australia

Airlie Beach is regarded as the gateway to Australia’s beautiful Whitsunday Island region, but many tourists don’t realize it’s a gorgeous vacation destination in its own right.

You don’t need to go island hopping to feel pampered in far north Queensland, as this hidden mainland gem has you covered.

Airlie’s main beach is located at roughly the same latitude as The Bahamas and Tahiti, which means that the swimming is perfect all year round. The water rarely dips under 20°C, although you’ll need to look out for stinging blue bottles between November and May.

Days spent on the beach are the ultimate indulgence, and happily this experience is free. With plenty of backpackers hostels and caravan parks around, that makes Airlie Beach a great spot for budget holidaymakers.Australia globe

But if you want to enjoy real luxury, consider a stay at Peppers Coral Coast. This is the only five-star resort in the area, and delivers everything you’d expect from this prestigious rating.

While many plush resorts cater for couples, Peppers welcomes families. The resort has one, two, and three-bedroom apartments so parents can have privacy while the kids enjoy their space.

The pool is a great alternative to the beach if you’re visiting while the stingers are about. Just imagine sipping cocktails by the pool’s edge as you soak up the picturesque views of the Whitsunday Passage. The famous Endota Spa chain also has facilities on site if you’re in the mood for even more indulgence.

Airlie Beach has a great range of restaurants, from fine-dining options to cheap and cheerful cafes. But if you’d prefer to stay in, Tides Restaurant and Bar won’t disappoint.

A stay at Peppers Coral Coast Resort starts at $151 per night for a one-bedroom apartment suite. At that price, this is a luxury holiday that most travelers can afford.
