Welcome to Port Douglas, a tranquil beachside resort in Tropical North Queensland's iconic holiday hotspot.

Port Douglas is home to million-dollar marinas, dreamy Four Mile Beach, glitzy boutiques and flashes of fun in the sun. Since the 1980's, the remote fishing village, an hour north of Cairns, has been transformed into an upmarket resort town and popular base for travellers to explore the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.

The town is built on a headland, with Dickson Inlet and estuary on the west side and the Coral Sea bordering the headland to the east. Up on the hill is Trinity Bay Lookout, the vantage point that's inspired decades of musing photos and reflections, overlooking Four Mile Beach in all it's glory. At the end of the beach is Sea Temple Port Douglas, secluded within a lush rainforest canopy just steps back from the sand.

Sea Temple Port Douglas is an AAA rated 5-star luxury resort, that's equal parts stylish and fun. The resort is home to studio rooms and spacious apartments orbiting a multi-dimensional lagoon pool, rumoured to be the biggest in the southern hemisphere. Just down the road is the Sea Temple Golf & Country Club, where you'll find a tropical woodland course with water challenges, resident crocs and a killer club sandwich. The resort is just a short drive from the main strip on Macrossan Street, or there's a regular shuttle or bikes to get you to your morning espresso or refreshing sundowner overlooking the marina.

The resort is an oasis of it's own, with everything you could need including; a fitness centre, jacuzzi, Pool Bar, sun lounges and the Aluco Restaurant and Bar; serving modern Australian cuisine with laid-back, yet attentive service. You can march to the beat of your own drum here at Sea Temple Port Douglas, the luxurious apartments are well equipped for self-catering, in-room dining and entertainment. Whether you're here for a short getaway or a long break, the resort is everything you need it to be and more. If Port Douglas is king of Tropical North Queensland, Sea Temple is the jewel in the crown.

Select Retreats privately owns apartments at Sea Temple Port Douglas and provides direct access to other privately owned apartments and rooms.

Thrill seekers will enjoy snorkelling or scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef and outer reef, kayaking, fishing or croc spotting. Shoppers will thrive in glitzy swimwear stores, galleries and artisanal shops. Everyone will enjoy browsing the eclectic wares of the Port Douglas Markets in Anzac Park each Sunday.

Port Douglas Marina, to the southwest of Macrossan Street, is a hive of activity with shops and restaurants overlooking pearly white Super Yachts. The Marina is the launching place for Great Barrier Reef adventures aboard Quicksilvers flagship vessels, which will speed you to the outer reef in no time. Or sit back and relax with strumming guitars aboard a Low Isles Sailing tour, departing daily. Port Douglas is known for dining and entertainment; with a choice of casual pubs, exotic cuisines and fresh seafood restaurants. On the Inlet is a popular seafood restaurant and spot for an afternoon aperitif watching the returning boats. Just remember, George the Groper is not on the menu.

To take full advantage of the many attractions nearby, we recommend hiring a car to visit Hartleys Crocodile Farm, Wildlife Habitat, the Daintree Rainforest, Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail, Mossman Gorge and much more. Whether you're staying with family, friends or as a romantic holiday, honeymoon or wedding, Port Douglas is the ideal destination. If you feel the need to venture out, you'll be spoilt for choice of things to do and experiences that will take your breath away.

  • Loved our stay!

    Our recent stay at Sea Temple Port Douglas was wonderful. The resort is beautiful and the room was fantastic. The room was roomy, styled nicely and had everything we needed. The communication from the boutique collection was great, easy to pick up keys and easy to check out. Loved our stay at Port Douglas, would recommend resort and boutique collection service. Will be back

  • Exceeded my expectations

    My stay at the Sea Temple exceeded my expectations. The apartment was beautiful and had everything I needed. We enjoyed the pool every day. The staff went above and cleaned our room when we were out and also attended to us when we had trouble with some power points. I would highly recommend this to friends and would definitely use Boutique Collections again. Thank you for making our holiday and stay enjoyable.

  • Wonderful

    The accommodation at Sea Temple was wonderful. Our 2 bedroom swim-out apartment was ideal for us – absolutely perfect in fact!! For the past 4 years we have been holidaying in far North QLD staying at Peppers Beach Club in Palm Cove which we have loved but this year we decided we’d stay in Port Douglas instead. We rate our overall experience as a 5/5!! We had an AMAZING time in Port Douglas and as a family we decided that Port Douglas would definitely be our destination of choice in the future. Looking forward to our next visit. Kind regards, Daniela
