Paradise Bay Eco Resort

Where Crystal Blue Water Meets the Rainforest ... Welcome to Paradise!

Paradise Bay offers a unique blend of eco and luxury set in a brilliant contrast of sun-soaked beaches, crystal clear water and pristine untouched wilderness full of friendly local wildlife.

It’s the ultimate in romantic, environmentally friendly island getaways – your own piece of Paradise in the Whitsundays. Enjoy lazy days exploring the Whitsundays on the resort’s private sailing and expedition boats, feast on gourmet meals with superb wines to match, , relax, leave the service to our friendly team and enjoy the peace and quiet of this tranquil and stunningly beautiful location.

An exclusive and private escape

With a maximum of just 20 guests at one time and no kids, no day visitors, no mobile phone reception or internet, this is the ultimate, intimate escape... welcome to Paradise!

Experience

The Paradise Bay experience is deliberately and unashamedly pared back to a simple, relaxed but oh so indulgent escape…
Throw off the stress, worry, demands and incessant irritation of modern life and step back to the way that an island holiday should be – sleep ins, toes in the sand, the sound of lapping waves, days messing around in boats, cocktails at sun set and the most amazing gourmet experience under the million star blanket of the Milky Way. Ahhh, that’s more like it!

Our philosophy is that by temporarily escaping from the normal distractions of modern life, guests really connect with themselves, those around them, and the environment - in a way that helps them rediscover the simple pleasures and natural rhythm of life.

A typical day in Paradise Bay …

There’s only three simple (and magical) things you need to know…

  • Breakfast is waiting for you when you get up
  • Your skipper is ready to take you on your daily boating adventure mid morning
  • Cocktails and Canapés are at sunset!

Your Paradise Bay Hosts take care of everything else! 

You’ll arrive as guests and leave (we may have to drag you to the helicopter) as friends!

Ecology

Paradise Bay Island Eco-Escape is built on the fringe of National Park in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park facing Conway National Park.

It is surrounded on all sides by pristine wilderness, and breathtakingly beautiful ocean. Our goal, simply stated, is to keep it exactly that way.

We believe it critical for us to preserve the environment for our own survivability, comfort, health and enjoyment and to prolong these conditions for as long as possible. We also have the added responsibility of passing it onto future generations.

Sustainable Development

Even if they attempt to minimise their impact large resorts have a big impact due to power generation, waste treatment, landscaping, construction, and provisioning and often end up destroying the natural beauty that attracted people to the area in the first place.  

We believe that any resort built in an environmentally sensitive area must be small in terms of building size and number of guests if they are genuinely going to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment.

Fortunately, we’ve found a way to do it, and have proven that we can create an environmentally conscientious tourism destination without sacrificing the comfort and quality of the guest experience.

This enables us to interact with the local environment, provide our guests with genuinely unique experiences in pristine wilderness in very small groups who leave nothing behind except footprints.

Eco Resort = Eco Operations

Paradise Bay’s sustainable performance is based on seven major principals:

  1. Construction and Design
  2. Solid Waste
  3. Power Systems
  4. Waste Water Treatment
  5. Water Collection and Usage
  6. Purchasing
  7. Carbon Off-set
