Three night getaway with a mystery virgin package deal as a Xmas present was taken in March in Port Douglas in the off season . Check in was quick and we requested a high floor which was great but considering how quiet the resort was we were surprised to be put so far from reception and the pool so it...

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend stay here. As Cairns locals the rate is amazing, the hotel gave us an upgrade to a 1 bedroom villa (we chose upper floor) and with buffet breakfast for two included. A beautiful tropical place to relax by and swim in the pool. I have noticed other comments regarding locals...

Wow. This place is unbelievable. The bar staff were super friendly & even though we were the last ones in the bar, they encouraged us to stay until the closing time. The decor is perfection, the drinks so delicious & affordable, & the pool bar is to die for! I wish I could live here! Highly recommend!

Casual resort with gorgeous gardens. The pool area and pool are very nice. We spent an entire day just relaxing between tours. There's a beautiful beach nearby. The bar area has a nice menu and delicious food. It's a bit pricey but since we didn't pay for transport to Port Douglas and back we called it even. The rooms are...

Had a short stay at QT with our very good friends from Cairns. Facilities were very nice, staff friendly, breakfast great and beds comfy. You don't need anything more than QT if your looking to stay at Port Douglas. Well done guys!

Stayed here for last 3 nights before heading home. A nice hotel in a great location not that far from the centre of Port Douglas. Staff very helpful and rooms good & spacious. Would probably stay in this hotel again.

This was our second time staying at QT and the lustre of the first stay had certainly worn off. The grounds are beautiful and reception staff always friendly and helpful, it's always nice to be greeted with a smile after a long journey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The next instalment in the QT Resorts series, QT Port Douglas, will be ready to bed on May the 12th, 2012.QT Resorts were launched by QT Port Douglas' gorgeous sister resort, QT Gold Coast, and this second coastal paradise will also include signature concepts such as the Bazaar Marketplace dining option that has quickly become the number one rated culinary experience on the Gold Coast. All guest rooms have been given a facelift with new QT beds, 42" flat screen TVs, and hand-sourced stylish fabrics and finishes. You will see in this resort the thread of designer decor that lifts QT Resorts to a new level of sophistication. The addition of 100 sun loungers by the pool can also be seen, forming the perfect vantage point from which to sip the day away. QT Port Douglas has a new open bar area, Estilo, which will be the place where you whet your lips before you dine in Bazaar, and to keep you swimwear ready, we also have begun an update on our gym and leisure offerings. From June until September, you can take in the balmy nights in front of a custom cinematic experience, Moonlight Cinema, designed especially for our guests. This sun kissed resort is a must for a lover of designer hotels and resorts. ... more   less
