Tropical rainforest retreat on Bedarra Island

Imagine a place where time is measured only by the passage of the sun. Where you can do as you wish, when you wish. Bedarra Island is a boutique island resort at the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. With just 16 architecturally refined villas nestled into the rainforest, Bedarra Island is very much a place for the dedicated few. All Villas feature a private balcony, separate living area and a casual charm. Designed by Pike Withers, the resort combines simplicity of design with comfort. Interiors feature natural materials and a modern beachcombing theme.

Each of the villas enjoys private beach access and ocean views, lightly filtered by She-oak and Pisonia trees. Between November and January guests share the island with female loggerhead or green turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs. Between March and April, hatchlings appear and scramble to the relative safety of the water’s edge.

Just 16 villas decorate the hills of Bedarra’s almost 250 acres, and the truly private guest need never see another visitor. Hidden within the island’s lush rainforest, each villa is appointed with spacious living areas, deep relaxing baths and incredible ocean views. All are luxurious, but the Pavillion suites are true standouts. Private plunge pools, heightened staff service and outdoor daybeds create a lavish setting favored for honeymoons and romantic retreats. Via
