Thala Beach Resort

Boasting rainforest bungalows and pristine private beaches, Thala Beach Nature Reserve is the ultimate North Queensland retreat.

Perfectly located on a private headland between Cairns and Port Douglas, Thala Beach Nature Reserve is your idyllic tropical retreat. Boasting 145 acres of native forest adjacent to the pristine and secluded Oak Beach, Thala Beach is a deluxe family-owned eco and wildlife retreat, proudly attaining the highest accreditation of eco-certification. Boasting breathtaking coastal views and boutique timber bungalows, Thala Beach is the ideal base to explore the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.

While there are endless wonders to discover in the surrounding area, guests at Thala Beach are spoilt for things to do onsite. Join a range of complimentary experiences, including stargazing, nature and wildlife walks, talks with the Indigenous Kuku Yalangi People and a Coconut Odyssey tour. If you’re looking to indulge, why not splurge on a rejuvenating spa treatment or explore the local waters via sea kayak? For the ultimate rejuvenating escape, Thala Beach Resort hosts regular Rainforest Yoga Retreats. Think daily beachfront yoga flows, poolside cocktails and interactive painting workshops.

After a day of discovery, retreat to your Jungle Walk Bungalow, nestled amid the deep green beauty of the rainforest canopy. Here, you can relax on your private balcony and spot native birds and wildlife. Cool down in one of two freeform pools, both complete with rocky waterfalls and hidden caves, to make you feel as though you are swimming in a rainforest stream. And, if you get hungry, Ospreys Restaurant offers treetop dining with local menus and exquisite views towards Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef. If you seek a restorative escape, look no further than Thala Beach Nature Reserve.
