If you're looking to really dive deep into the natural treasures of world and take your luxury travel adventures to the next level, then you're going to want to book your next holiday at Reefsuites, Australia's very first underwater hotel in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. 

Newly opened in December, the undersea accommodation consists of two deluxe suites suspended beneath a floating pontoon, managed by luxury tourism operator Cruise Whitsundays, and sits just off the coast of Hardy Reef amidst a remote landscape of beautiful blue waters


Inside, you can experience the sights of over 1,500 species of fish, turtles, sting rays and sharks, as well as some other truly breath-taking species that are unique to the Great Barrier Reef itself. The best part? You can sit back, relax and revel in the wonders of these undersea sights from the comfort of your plush pillows and king-sized bed. 

And for those with a more adventurous streak, you can also embark on organised snorkelling and diving trips with an expert Reefsuites guide, to get up close and personal with the fascinating residents of world's largest coral reef system.


What makes Reefsuites so special is that the fully submerged suites don't actually negatively impact the Reef - which, in light of the ecological climate crisis, makes this a truly unforgettable, guilt-free luxury experience that benefits both you and the planet. Reefsuites have worked closely with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to ensure that the protection of the Reef has been preserved at every stage of development in the construction of the suites.

In fact, they have no greater impact than simply harbouring a boat above the Reef's waters.
