My partner and I are Cairns locals and having visited Green Island on a few occasions, decided to stay overnight at Green Island Resort for a getaway. While the island can be bustling with tourists throughout the day, the resort is quiet and rooms are cabins located in a lovely jungle layout. Clean, comfortable, and loved the tropical feel. Nice...

Great place to stay for a fun adventurous time, once the day trippers leave it is like staying on your own private island. Rooms are nice and comfortable and the actives offered are interesting and informative depending on the guide as some impart more information than others.

I took my wife to the green island resort as part of her two week birthday bash in Australia and spend two nights with the Green Island Resort. Everything was fantastic. Clean well prepared rooms. A nice tub for a bath (sadly fits only one person comfortably). Highlights of the trip were probably the bubbly served complimentary at the restaurant...

Absolutely wonderful! Stayed on Green Island 4/5 years ago. This is our 2nd trip to Green Island. Still love it. Still be the best. Lots of activities to do for families: Rainforest walk, Star Glazing, Off Shore Snorkelling, Nature Walk at Night (never saw that many turtles on the beach), Glass Bottom boat and Sunset drink. Definitely value for money....

Green Island was truly an exceptional destination. We took advantage of snorkeling before the day trippers arrived and swam with reef sharks, green sea turtles, and beautiful fish. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the resort kept up beautifully. Our 3 nights were perfect.

We were there just last weekend. What do I say, the rooms are excellent, staff friendly, the restaurant meals are to die for! When you stay here, and after the last tourist boat drifts away from the jetty, the island takes on a calm feeling of perfection. The stay packages include fish feeding on the jetty at 5.00pm, followed by...

Its one of those places where there is lots of activity, before the last ferry out at 4pm, and then wonderful tranquility. The beaches are superb, the resort has top notch accomodations and the food is good. The fish feeding at 5pm is worth a stop, and swimming with no one in sight in these seas is memorable. I should...

We enjoyed our "2 day 1 night" stay on Green Island. The food was exceptional. The beach tremendous. The aquatic wildlife amazing. Green Island Resort has a bit of a split personality. In the morning and at night the resort is quiet and tranquil with fish feeding, free sunset drinks, night discovery walks and great food all organised well exclusively...

This has been one of the more difficult reviews I have written because the resort is exactly as described but felt it was missing the details/inclusions that one would expect from the price tag. There is no denying the island itself is beautiful and truly did enjoy our 3 nights at the resort. The staff was wonderful, the location is...

Green Island Resort is absolutely fabulous. The accommodation is high end, luxurious but Eco friendly. The rooms are quiet and private and comfortable. The resort is built into the rainforest and blends in with the landscape. There is limited food choice after 4pm and the restaurant is expensive but the meals are large and give value for money. Breakfast is...
