CharlieQLD, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and great to hear you enjoyed your Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort experience. Yes you were in one of our newly refurbished Deluxe room types. Great to hear our team looked after you well. Sorry for the coffee selection we are reviewing the buffet option. We have also recently employed two baristas to make beautiful coffees, so feel free to order at the Moku Bar. We hope you enjoyed your holiday away and to see you again on your next visit to Cairns. Cheers Scott Grant General Manager

First of all, the resort is currently undergoing renovations - which is to no fault of their own, so we can take that out of the experience altogether, but is something to keep in mind when looking to book a stay at this location. We arrived on January 20th (Sunday) and our

My partner and I stayed here twice in 2018 and had some fairly poor experiences both times. The second experience was enough for me to reach out to management and vent my frustration. I was surprised to receive a personal phone call from the general manager who apologised

Can’t imagine it will be done for months- massive job. And the building next door (guessing hotel or apartment complex) is not even fully erected yet. Between the two renovations my hubby and I literally could not hear each other speak whilst sitting near the pool.

You are 1 block (250m) from the Esplanade - fronts the ocean. This is not a swimming area due to crocs and stingers. However just a few 100m on there is a very large waterfront pool/BBQ/boardwalk area which has families, tourists, etc all year round. Beautiful. Swimming beaches where you can walk on a sandy beach and swim in a netted enclosure are dotted along Cairns northern suburbs 10-30mins by car. Trinity beach; Yorkeys knob are lovely - palm cove my favourite. Accomodation available at all three but you would need a hire car if wanting to go to all tourist places.
