en­joy na­ture in com­fort

Cape Tribu­la­tion is the only place on earth where two World Her­itage-listed en­vi­ron­ments are along­side each other. On one side there is the trop­i­cal world of the Dain­tree rain­for­est and on the other, the sparkling Great Bar­rier Reef.

Per­fectly placed to en­cap­su­late the two is the fourstar Cape Tribu­la­tion Re­sort and Spa which com­bines the won­der of the nat­u­ral world with the com­fort of the mod­ern. Ocean Ho­tel’s flag­ship des­ti­na­tion is an easy drive north of Cairns and Port Douglas, mak­ing it an ideal Easter get­away. Or you can stay for much, much longer.

Sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Michelle Behs­man says the re­sort is per­fectly lo­cated on the white sands of Co­conut Beach, while the ac­com­mo­da­tion it­self is pri­vately perched within the wild sur­rounds of the rain­for­est. “The ex­quis­ite Dain­tree flora and fauna sur­rounds each room to cre­ate a nat­u­ral am­bi­ence,” Michelle says.

A choice for those wish­ing to sim­ply un­wind and take in the sur­round­ings is a treat­ment, or two or three, at the new beach­side Ocean Spa.

The spa proudly fea­tures Aus­tralian-owned and man­u­fac­tured beauty prod­uct or­gan­ic­spa, which com­bines medic­i­nal lev­els of cer­ti­fied or­ganic plant ex­tracts with 100 per cent nat­u­rally de­rived in­gre­di­ents, em­body­ing the be­lief that “lux­ury can be pro­vided through na­ture,” Michelle points out.

Try a clay wrap or body scrub, or en­joy the ben­e­fit of stone ther­apy or one of the more con­ven­tional spa treat­ments. For the more ac­tive, try bush­walk­ing, horse rid­ing, kayak­ing, snorkelling or jun­gle surf­ing.

En­joy rain­for­est walks by day or by night, croc­o­dile cruises, fish­ing, bird watch­ing, or hop on board a four-wheel-drive tour.

Meals are served at the re­sort’s Cape Restau­rant and Bar. Based on the de­sign of an In­done­sian long house, the restau­rant gives din­ers views over the pool to the sands of Co­conut Beach and is a fit­ting venue for a re­laxed break­fast, a lazy lunch by the pool or a sun­set cock­tail be­fore a tan­ta­lis­ing din­ner.

“Draw­ing on the best of lo­cal pro­duce, the Cape Restau­rant pro­vides mod­ern Aus­tralian cui­sine with sub­tle South-East Asian in­flu­ences,” Michelle says.
