Australia: Orpheus Island Resort Reopens After Revamp

Located just off the coast of Queensland on Orpheus Island, the Orpheus Island Resort has reopened following an extensive revamp. Accommodating a maximum of 34 guests at any one time, the resort offers seclusion and privacy in an idyllic natural setting.

Orpheus Island, which is only about 11 kilometers long and one kilometer wide, is fringed by the Great Barrier Reef, a scuba diving mecca and the world’s biggest coral reef system (it’s visible from space). In fact, most of the 1,368-hectare tropical island — the resort excluded — is a national park, and the surrounding ocean is a World Heritage-listed marine park.

Situated in sheltered Hazard Bay, the resort features beach-side rooms, suites, and villas (all with private terraces). A pavilion bar and restaurant, and a 26-meter infinity pool with panoramic views of the Coral Sea, complete the serene picture. For those seeking adventure, the resort can arrange scuba diving and snorkeling expeditions.
