Directly opposite you is the gorgeous Catseye Beach. Your balcony affords you eye-stretching panoramas over the ocean. But even more spectacular views await beneath the surface of the sea.

With a range of accommodation beginning with reef rooms large enough for families and culminating in a two storey presidential suite with space for six, the aptly named Reef View Hotel is virtually a must on any luxury, tailor-made holiday to Australia. Especially if the Great Barrier Reef is high on your tick list.

The Reef View enjoys an eminent setting on Hamilton Island, in the heart of the Whitsundays, so the vivid coral formations of the Great Barrier Reef, with its hundreds of different species of fish and exotic marine creatures, are on your doorstep. You can expect to see turtles cruising through the crystal waters, as well as impassive manta rays, playful dolphins and hulking whales. Even after dark, the reef is spectacular.

  • Although we bothered Lydia on several occasions over small matters, she was always patient and very helpful. The whole organisation from Heathrow and back was seamless and first class. Game watching on this trip surpassed all that we had seen before in the one trip. Our thanks to Ultimate yet again
