Luxury hotel in Cairns

I've been looking for a luxury hotel for my honeymoon in Cairns. So far I've seen and all the sugestions and travel agents tellme to go to shangri-la.

I'm not price concercened, but it tha page of the shangri-la the rooms seem kind of old.

But i havent bee able to find a better choice.

I'm looking for a st. regis or four seasons kind of hotel.

Thanks

There isn't a FS or St Regis style in Cairns (please correct e if anyone knows of one)

The ShangriLa is sprobably the best pick of the lot..being the one I thionk we are considering for Nov..

We've done mostof the top end places by now and my choice thus far is in palm Cove (Sea temple)

you might consider port Douglas and peppers bale if you want something really special int he area..or thal (not FS IMHO but a bit special)

What about the Pullman Reef Casino? It's considered 5-stars, and it is ranked #2 for Cairns on TripAdvisor.

I'd be interested in people's views on the Pullman Reef vs. the Shangri-la in Cairns.

pollograza, we picked out the Shangri-la for our stay in Cairns and will be there Sept 28th till Oct 8th. I will do a review after that. Not sure when you are looking at being there, we found a good deal on expedia.
