Hotel Licuala Lodge Mission Beach
The 4-star Licuala Lodge is an award winning Queenslander pole home, set in World Heritage rainforest just one and a half kms from Mission Beach. Guest accommodation, which is separate from the main house, is fully en-suite. There is a great swimming pool with a waterfall feature - it has just got to be the best in the area. The colourful grounds have a tropical feel to them - lots of native plants to attract scores of birds and butterflies, including the Ulysses.
There is a large guest lounge complete with TV, DVD, book swap library, games (Trivial Pursuit, chess, backgammon, etc.). There are lots of DVDs, including the full set of Fawlty Towers and Yes Minister episodes.
The tour desk has brochures for all the tour operators in the area. Almost all the tour operators (e.g., Great Barrier Reef, White Water Rafting) pick up and drop off for free at the Lodge.
Several resident cassowaries visit the Lodge each day, so if you have not seen this magnificent and endangered bird in the wild this is your big chance.
Mission Beach is blessed with several excellent restaurants which are all close by. If you are a bit tired of eating out there are cooking facilities and a barbecue at your disposal.
Extreme sports are available here - white water rafting and sky diving - but most of all you will be knocked over by the tranquility and serenity of Mission Beach.
Licuala Lodge serves the yummiest breakfast on offer in all Queensland.
Laundry facilities are here, iron and ironing board ( and of course Wi-Fi access.
It's all here at Licuala Lodge - why stay anywhere else?
Please note that the Lodge is not suitable for children under the age of ten.
