As soon as you set foot on Orpheus Island you’ll know you’ve arrived somewhere incredibly special. As one of only 28 people permitted on the island at any time, you’ll be one of the privileged few to experience the raw beauty of this private island paradise, fringed with 1,000 hectares of national park and just steps from pristine stretches of reef teeming with around 1,100 species of fish.

What You’ll Love…

The Resort – An idyllic island paradise

Accessible only by helicopter, Orpheus Island Lodge provides guests with a true secluded island experience but with all of the modern luxuries you'd expect of a five-star resort.

The island itself features 11km of immaculate coastline set within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed marine park, where guests can spend time snorkelling in colourful protected reefs, chilling out in a hammock hung between two palm trees or unwinding on one of the dreamy white-sand beaches. The island lodge is home to the main pavilion bar and alfresco-style dining area, a restaurant, a reading room, the Gwandalan Day Spa and a picture-perfect glittering infinity pool looking out over the waters of the Coral Sea.

The Food – All meals included, crafted using the freshest seasonal produce and seafood

Gourmands will be in their element on Orpheus Island, where the bounty of the sea and the island’s very own vegetable garden are used to create exquisite dishes overseen by Michelin-trained chef Paul Wilson.

Ease into sun-kissed island days with a fresh and delicious a la carte breakfast such as smoked salmon with seeded mustard crème fraiche, pea tendrils and almond or pancakes with caramelized banana, honeycomb butter and maple syrup accompanied by coffee, tea and juice.

Take a trip around the globe at lunchtime as you sample tapas inspired by the cuisine of Italy, Thailand, Japan, the Middle East and beyond. Enjoy an array of flavour-filled dishes such as grilled halloumi with pistachio and pomegranate, Thai beef salad with nahm jim and truffle arancini. Alternatively, you might like to request a chef-prepared hamper to enjoy as you explore.

If that’s whet your appetite then wait for the piece de’resistance: your nightly four-course degustation dinner served overlooking the lapping waters of the Coral Sea. This is where the resort’s gastronomical offer truly shines, through dishes such as king prawn ceviche with smoked goats cheese and avocado lime mousse, venison tenderloin with roast plum, sour cherries and young turnips and Mexican dark chocolate cremeux with mango sorbet. You might even choose to dine on fish caught by your own hand earlier in the day.

Plus enjoy a selection of quality Australian wines and beers as part of your package.

The Room – Light and luxurious with Coral Sea views

Light and airy with views of the Coral Sea, your North Beachfront Room offers laid-back luxury complete with a plush king-sized bed and a private terrace where you can enjoy your morning coffee prepared using your in-room coffee machine.

VIP Upgrade – North Beachfront Suite: Boasting a generous 56sqm of space, these plush suites come with spectacular sea views and are perfectly sheltered, tranquil sanctuaries.

Celebrity Upgrade – South Suite: The most exclusive accommodation on offer on the island, the extra-spacious South Suites come in at a huge 68sqm of privacy amongst lush tropical gardens. Offering the ultimate in romance, take advantage of an outdoor stone bathtub, a private courtyard and views out to sea.

See & Do – Soak up the beauty of the island with complimentary activities

While the island’s picture-perfect beaches lend themselves to lazy days doing very little with a good book in hand, you’ll also have the opportunity to take to the pristine waters with complimentary kayaking, paddle-boarding, catamaran sailing and more.

Explore the island at your leisure, where palm-fringed natural national parkland meets white powdery sands. Each day you’ll be invited to join in with an activity curated especially for the conditions, whether a low tide walk, a sunset cruise or a hiking adventure.

Perfect for couples or honeymooners

Enjoy a romantic castaway escape in the most beautiful of settings, indulging in gourmet food and wine and exploring the island at your leisure. Set the tone for your blissful getaway with a complimentary bottle of French champagne with indulgent chocolate-dipped strawberries awaiting you on arrival.
