Palm paradise :)
We took a break at Palm Bay to recover from a hectic family visit back in the UK before returning to work. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Facilities were great. There was a wedding on whilst we were there, we were largely unaffected (aside from a bagpipe rehearsal as we were getting a massage - which management sorted out for us quickly and was very good about!) - but it would've been nice to be notified in advance as it was such a large party in a small resort.

Very relaxing
It was a very relaxing peaceful resort which I needed. Great service and caring staff . The cabin was just perfect for me and I like it was self catering.

A touch of Paradise.
We needed to get away from the bleak winter of sydney and this was just like Paradise at this time of year. Bures on the beach and the lagoon; hammocks stretched across our deck and sun streaming in every moment of the day from sunrise to sunset. Faces west and the sunsets are beautiful. We were happy to cook for ourselves in the well equipped kitchen which looks out over the beautiful pool area. We stayed 5 nights; next year we will stay longer. We are both in our 70s and the kayacking was available and the lagoon easy to negotiate. We flew to Proserpine and took a water taxi off Shute Harbour 20 mins across to the Palm Bay Hideaway.

Beautiful resort and friendly staff
We had three nights in the resort, welcomed by friendly staff members. Caroline is very warm and welcoming, the view is fantastic, the facilities are great, love the little library next toy the fire place. We really enjoyed our stay. Couple of minor improvement areas recommended for future reference: 1) have insect repellant candles in the room will be really helpful to keep the insects away, despite we brought out own insect repellent spray which didn't seem to be enough 2) bit better cleaning such as the kitchen sink and window blinds would be great. Overall we love this beautiful resort and had a great "hideaway" time on the island. We recommend this for all.

Unique self-catered accom great for nature lovers
Palm Bay is unique resort in a picturesque location. Excellent value for money if you don't mind preparing your own meals. If we had to be critical the room (we booked the cheapest beackfront cottage) condition was in need to a bit of maintainence. Highlights were waking up to beautiful Whitsunday beach with free kayaking and bushwalking just a short walk away (watch out for the giant golden orb spiders - apparently not dangerous, but huge!!). Perfect place to getaway from the crowds and relax with your partner. 20min boat ride from Shute Harbour was also a novelty, delivering you right onto the beach. Lovely staff, always willing to help and do all your dishes. A unique self-catered resort and very quiet when we went (March). Refreshing salt water pool to cool off and guest kitchen had everything you could need. Would stay here again to enjoy the wilderness and isolation of Long Island, probably choosing a bigger room.
