Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most extraordinary natural wonders. Normally you would need to don scuba diving gear to see the fishes that populate the reef, but a new underwater hotel called the Reefsuites lets you admire this aquatic wonderland without getting wet.
Located in the Whitsundays on the Great Barrier Reef, the Reefsuite is actually part of a USD8 million redevelopment of the Reefworld pontoon that was reconstructed after it sustained damage during Cyclone Debbie in 2017.
Situated at Hardy Reef (39 nautical miles from Airlie Beach), guests will be able to enjoy a scenic cruise through the Whitsundays before they reach the pontoon where they will be treated to a host of luxury amenities.
Those interested in taking in the aquatic scenery at night can look forward to resting on a premium king-sized bed or twin-single beds within their suite. A glass wall with a floor-to-ceiling view lets guests see what lies beneath the blue waters and see the enchanting corals up close and the fishes that swim around it.
Those who prefer to stay above water can also opt to sleep under the stars on the pontoon’s upper deck which can accommodate up to 28 guests.
The all-inclusive package includes breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon teas and dinner under the stars.
Day visitors can look forward to other activities like the underwater observatory access, semi-submersible tours, scuba diving and snorkelling.
