Surrounded by nature you’ll easily "discover your true nature!"
Open huts are designed so that you feel you are living in the wild rainforest. There will be delicious cuisine (vegetarian and raw specialty), salt swimming pool in the rainforest, access to a near private secluded beaches, bird watching and creatures, amazing views, and an unspoiled paradise overlooking the Coral Sea and halfway between Cairns and Townsville. Shouldn’t you be seeking Sanctuary?
A minimalist design maximises the sights, sounds, and smells of the rainforest whilst giving some personal space to those creatures you may prefer not to sleep with. Accessed by a boardwalk to protect the forest floor, the rainforest huts have no solid walls, instead the timber structure is screened on all four sides with weather proof curtains able to be drawn for privacy and protection from adverse weather.
Each hut has a small veranda, simple furnishings and sleeps two in either double or twin occupancy. Bathroom for this style of accommodation are in the main building. The next style is a rainforest hut with attached outdoor funky en-suite bathrooms.
These cabins are made of solid wooden construction, with ample, screened glass windows. The canopy cabins offer maximum protection from the elements, while still offering a close connection to the sights and sounds of the forest.
Larger than the rainforest huts, these cabins are stylishly appointed with polished wooden floors, handmade natural timber furniture and spectacular glass-walled bathrooms looking out high in the trees. With a studio-style lounge and bedroom and a private, furnished veranda, the canopy cabins offer superior accommodation in an entirely natural environment.
Sanctuary is a very special and unique place in many ways. They want to provide a clear, honest picture of Sanctuary, so they wish to ask you to consider a few points that will either enhance or detract from participant’s expectations.
Sanctuary Retreat is small and informal. The casual atmosphere encourages guests and staff to be on a friendly first name basis. This type of inclusive environment makes Sanctuary an ideal place for solo travelers as well as couples and groups.
While Sanctuary offers a luxurious natural environment, some traditional resort services are not standard here, i.e. there are no porters to transport guest’s luggage.
The two contrasting styles of accommodation offer two comfort levels in the rainforest, though please be aware that they do not furnish the deluxe accommodation with hair dryers or tea and coffee making facilities.
Sanctuary is in a totally natural environment you will come into contact with a variety of wildlife, including insects. Sanctuary is not a place for arachnophobes.
Sanctuary and the accommodation are set high on a ridge on a 50 acre rainforest nature reserve. The hilly and steep terrain makes it important to consider the fitness of all guests at Sanctuary.
A 4WD transfer can be arranged at additional cost to carry guests and their luggage on arrival and departure, though during their stay guests walk a ten minute forest trail from the beach and car park to Sanctuary and its accommodation. There are also steps at the entrance to many huts and cabins.
For these reasons they do ask you to consider your expectations and fitness levels. Sanctuary Retreat regrets that it is unable to accommodate children under the age of 11 years old.
