Australia’s coastal weather is notorious for being paradise-like. Summers are warm and sun-kissed, while breezes keep the temperatures from getting too hot. Winters are mild and never frigid, making Australia one of the best vacation spots in the world. Combine this with the unmatched luxury and sustainability of Paradise Bay Hotel – and you’ve got bliss by the sea that you can claim any time of year!
Only 16 guests at a time can take advantage of this private and breath-taking oasis. Explore deserted beaches, private coves, and gorgeous coral gardens during your stay – and be pampered by the friendly staff. Your own secluded bungalow is designed for absolute privacy - featuring cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, hammocks waiting for your afternoon nap, and king-size Sealy Posturepedic Ultra-Premium beds.
Bedding includes a Sheridan duck down topper so you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, 400 thread count ‘cool’ sheets, super-soft waffle blankets and in wintertime, 1,000 thread count duck-down comforters. You’ll experience extra pampering with Molton Brown shower gels and soaps, and pure cotton bath sheets – something many eco-friendly resorts can’t boast.
Paradise Bay makes every effort to recycle all recyclable products – including paper, plastic, glass and metal. Those which cannot be recycled locally are sent back to the mainland to facilities that can accommodate them. By utilizing Enjo cleaning products, Paradise Bay is able to achieve perfect cleanliness with water alone – no harsh chemicals or additives. They also take advantage of a solar field and 100% alternative energy for operation – including the kitchens.
All of the hot water utilized is solar-heated, and rain water is collected for usage as well. In addition, Paradise Bay planted more than a thousand trees last year to help offset their carbon emissions. The resort also features vegetable gardens and fruit orchards, which help provide the kitchen with organic and delicious additions to their dishes. Having implemented every possible energy-saving method during the construction of the resort, Paradise Bay is easily one of the ‘greenest’ luxury hotels in or near Australia.
The next time you feel the lapping of ocean waves calling to you, or the sweet afternoon slumber achievable only in a secluded and peaceful location – consider Paradise Bay, a truly beautiful and luxurious eco-friendly resort.
