Whitsundays underwater accommodation, underwater luxury sleep on the reef suites a first for the Whitsunday Islands and Australia. 2 exclusive suites, four metres underwater with floor to ceiling glass separating guests from the parading marine reef life outside.

The recently constructed floating pontoon at Hardy Reef in the Whitsundays cost a cool $10 million and is now the first of its kind in Australia to offer luxury sleep under the water hotel style accommodation in reef suites.

Guests enjoy 2 days and 1 night sleeping in this luxury first of it's kind in Australia, underwater accommodation on the reef amongst the beautiful Whitsunday Islands on the Great Barrier Reef. Moored offshore, 40 nautical miles from Airlie Beach at Hardy Reef, this new 5-star accommodation gives a whole new meaning to ‘a room with a view'. Each one of our luxury Reef suites has a two-person capacity and guests can arrive via Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island or Daydream Island or even on a private charter helicopter flight.

Both ensuite rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows; allowing you feel like you are part of the underwater aquarium. At night, you can turn on the light to observe the more nocturnal marine life that are attracted to these lights as they illuminate the water enabling you to see marine life that you probably did not see during the day. Sit up in your luxury bed and watch as the reef comes to life and the fish perform their underwater ballet before you.

Over 4000 new corals have been planted on this reef and the marine biologists say the coral and plants will attach themselves to the outside of the pontoon luring even more sea life to our underwater hotel.

Guests can choose luxury underwater suites

  • King double
  • Twin single
  • Single

Each room comes with floor-to-ceiling views of the Great Barrier Reef and its marine life. Those underwater vistas are a highlight not only in the bedrooms, but in the attached private ensuites. All meals, including breakfast, morning and afternoon teas and dinner, are includedand you also get free beer and wine, although cocktails and spirits will cost more.

With your Great Barrier Reef luxury sleep on the reef package your stay will include a private, guided snorkelling tour and a semi-submersible submarine tour. There's also an underwater observatory that you can explore at your leisure.

Whilst you are luxuriating in the underwater suites down below, up on deck are other guests sleeping under the stars in our posh packing campers  - Whitsunday Reef Sleep 2-Day, 1-Night Sleep On The Reef. If you wish to explore the Great Barrier Reef even more then book scuba diving and helicopter flights.

Oh and by the way children over 10 years of age are also welcome and make sure to book very early for this new luxury Great Barrier Reef sleep on the reef experience or you are sure to miss out.
