Slip Into a Hidden Haven at M Gallery's Reef House
After Accor Hotels acquired quite a large portfolio in Australia, we began to see the brand domination in the country. Since then, they've become the largest international hotel chain in Oz and now they're adding M Gallery's Reef House Palm Cove to their list of hotel havens.
Originally built as a family residence in 1958, the 69-room beach resort overlooks the Coral Sea. It will be brands sixth Australian property located in the tranquil, yet glamorous town of Palm Cove, about 30 minutes north of Cairns. A palm lined esplanade not only gives the town its namesake, but denotes your arrival to, what many consider, Eden.
Settle in and get ready to be pampered. The beach over the road provides a good view and the tropical setting is completed while sipping the complimentary, house-made 'Brigadier's Punch' under candlelight on the Plantation-style front porch. Along with the happy hour, guest rooms include a tropical breakfast to start your day right.
Each room has whitewashed walls plush, king size beds draped with light muslin netting and come with private balconies or patios either overlooking the ocean, garden or pool. Between the quiet setting, colonial digs and endless summer, we don't understand how anyone would have struggles relaxing.
Room rates start at $206 AUD ($212) per night and includes the Brigadiers Punch happy hour and breakfast.
