Australia’s 5 Best Luxury Resorts

I’m very proud to call Australia home. It’s a beautiful country blessed with a stunning, rugged coastline, breath-taking beaches and a harsh, red centre that will captivate you. Because of these things, many people spend a lifetime wanting to visit and, if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it well. While there are many great places to stay, these are the five best luxury resorts Australia has to offer. Be warned, they may inspire a serious case of wanderlust.

Luxury hotel Tasmania suite

Located in picture-perfect Coles Bay, mid-way along the Tasmanian East Coast, Saffire Freycinet is not just one of the best luxury hotels in Australia, but quite possibly the best. Each room drips with luxury, offering take-your-breath-away views of Coles Bay and the Freycinet National Park. The generously sized rooms are decadently decorated with modern, Tasmanian timber furnishings and fittings and the award-winning on-site restaurant is a foodie’s delight. A stay here transports you to somewhere magical and next-level spectacular, making it more than worthy of being known as one of Australia’s best luxury hotels.

Amazing Southern Ocean Lodge suite view

Floating high atop a secluded cliff on the rugged coastline of Kangaroo Island in South Australia, Southern Ocean Lodge is a one of a kind luxury lodge. The unmatched views of the wild Southern Ocean teamed with the wilderness of Kangaroo Island make for a truly unique and luxurious stay in refined comfort. Rooms feature lavish king-size beds, limestone floors, spotted gym feature walls, a sunken lounge and dramatic glass-walled bathrooms, with a spa facing the Southern Ocean. It is the perfect collision of modern comforts and raw Australian landscape.

Luxury Qualia Leeward Pavilion

Without even knowing it, Qualia Resort may very well be the kind of place tourists dream of when they imagine Queensland and the Whitsundays. Quaila provides world-class luxury accommodation overlooking the edge of the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands. With bright blue skies, aquamarine water and a sun-drenched location, it is the perfect spot to while away days relaxing in complete and total luxury. Pavillions provide absolute privacy and uninterrupted views of the sea, flawless design, soothing decor and some even offer a plunge pool.

Gorgeous luxury tent Longitude

There are few luxury accommodations that compare to Longitude 131. Situated in the heart of Australia, facing majestic Uluru, it offers spectacular views of the outback icon and World Heritage-listed wilderness of Uluru-kata Tjuta National Park. It’s a chance to experience the Anangu culture and explore, hearing stories from the traditional custodians of the land. Accommodation takes the form of luxury tents with crisp, white linen and king-size beds. The sweeping tent canopy offers a dream-like feel to the room, and guests are treated to private views of the rising sun over Uluru each day.

Luxury Bedarra Island Resort suite

Also located in Queensland, Bedarra provides an all-inclusive, tropical haven for visitors right on the Great Barrier Reef. With only eight private villas hidden among a huge, dense tropical rainforest, it really is the ultimate location to lose yourself and enjoy solitude and complete relaxation. The most luxurious accommodation available has to be The Point, a huge private villa with unimaginable views of Hernandia Bay from a massive private deck complete with plunge pool. This is a destination that, quite simply, dreams are made of.
