Coral Sea Resort

Thursday, January 24, 2002
Absolute waterfront, ambience of intimacy, peace and tranquillity … you have it all at Airlie Beach.

Airlie Beach is the gateway to the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef and is a town that prides itself on showing visitors a good time.

The Coral Sea Resort is the only one in town which can claim waterfront location, and while it opened its 77 rooms only last year, has already had a win in Queensland's 2000 Tourism Awards.

There are coral sea, bay view, ocean view and garden view suites, a family unit, one-, two- and three-bedroom penthouses, a one-bedroom apartment and a two-bedroom beach house apartment.

Some suites overhang the rocky water's edge, some balconies have spa baths, and all accommodation heightens the tropical resort experience.

Choose between two restaurants — the Coral Sea Brasserie is open all day and specialises in local seafood. It is poolside and has unrestricted ocean views.

The Jetty Restaurant is on the resort's private jetty and has an ambience of intimacy, peace and tranquillity.

Enjoy yourself by parasailing or jet skiing, and there are plenty of opportunities to take day trips to the wonderful Great Barrier Reef. The resort also offers skydiving, fishing, diving, eco tours, sailing, horse riding and golf.

They have an in-house booking office for arranging trips by boat, horse, plane or helicopter.
