Paradise Links is the perfect place to honeymoon, celebrate the last of your adult time on a babymoon, or enjoy a sneaky kid-free getaway.
While it may be tempting not to leave the confines of your luxury villa, get active together and discover the romance, relaxation, and
adventure of Port Douglas.
Make an entrance.
Kick off with a stylish luxury transfer in a sleek Maserati or Mercedes. For a bit of crazy fun, jump in a black stretch Hummer, or go uber fancy pants with a private, twenty-minute helicopter transfer over the lush green mountains and sparkling Coral Sea.
Take to the skies.
If you opted out of the airport helicopter transfer, have reception arrange the ultimate in romantic luxury with a once in a lifetime scenic flight and touchdown on the pristine white sands of Undine Cay. Spend the morning snorkelling among the soft corals, turtles, and fish, before drying off to devour an indulgent picnic brunch of exotic fruits, savoury treats and gourmet paninis washed down with chilled sparkling wine and fresh orange juice.
Extend your flight and touchdown above a secluded rainforest waterfall. Dive into the crystal clear, cool rainforest pool before enjoying an afternoon tea of buttery pastry goodness and sugar-laden sweet treats.
Take a day off from adventure and delight in the pure decadence of a Port Douglas' day spa. Relax in a tranquil couples’ suite before three hours of blissful massage, facial, mud wrap, salt scrub, Vichy shower or hot stone therapy. Wind down in a private terrace spa bath, sipping champagne and sweetening your afternoon with locally made chocolates.
After a day of lazing about the spa, get active with an out of the ordinary river drift snorkel on the crystal-clear surface of the Mossman River, watching freshwater fish and turtles swim underneath you. Those seeking a relaxation and adventure combo can recline on a river sled and float gently with the current while watching the rainforest above.
Who needs St Barts?
Live like a Kardashian for a day onboard a luxurious private white boat. Ask reception to customise a day on the water with as little or as much activity as you fancy. Your crew will deliver you to secluded islands and uncrowded reef spots to snorkel, scuba dive, fish, or a combination of all three!
Relax into the lounge on the polished teak deck with a cocktail in hand after devouring a tropical seafood banquet in the lavish saloon.
If your budget doesn't extend to white boat wonderland, join a day trip to Low Isles or the stunning Mackay Cay for snorkelling among the endless beds of fish-filled colourful coral. Low Isles offers a beach break under thatched umbrellas on the island and exploration of the original lighthouse. Those opting for Mackay Cay will enjoy a sensational sail along the east coast, drinking in the incredible rainforest vista of Cape Tribulation and the Daintree.
Dinner for two?
Pop to town early and begin your evening with a romantic sunset sail, bubbles, and canapes as you gaze back across the ocean to the majestic mountains and palm-fringed golden sands of Four Mile Beach.
The magical, candlelit setting at Melaleuca restaurant sets the mood. Ask for a table on the verandah overlooking the park and historic St Mary's by the Sea chapel. Treat yourself to the signature whole baby Barramundi paired with a bottle of the Corte Giara Pinot Grigio.
For something a little livelier, enjoy the relaxed, tropical vibe of Salsa Port Douglas. Serving extravagant cocktails, a dessert platter to die for, and a menu overflowing with local produce, you'll need to be active the next day to burn off the goodness.
For the ultimate decadence, skip lunch to ensure enough real estate in your belly for a famous Nautilus restaurant degustation. Relax in the rainforest setting perched high on the hill, with your most challenging decision of the night being whether to order five or seven courses.
Get bar hopping.
Throw caution to the wind checking out the funky watering holes of Port Douglas. Sample beers from craft brewery Hemingway’s on the marina boardwalk before wandering a little further for a gin and tonic on the plush lounges at stylish Barbados. Go old school with a French Martini at Sassi La Cucina before hitting Jimmy Rums to explore the endless range of exotic and traditional cocktails by candlelight as you sink into the leather chesterfields.
Get in touch with the Paradise Links team to talk hot air balloon flights with champagne, rainforest road trips with heavenly hampers and long lazy lunches in town.
Be warned - you may not want to leave!
