Budget-friendly retreat in prime tropical location

Bay Village Tropical Retreat sits just a block from the Cairns Esplanade. The pool offers a relaxing respite after a busy day snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef or exploring the rain forest. Beach-inspired décor, gardens filled with local plants, and a beautiful outdoor pool create a tropical atmosphere. Emphasis on providing the basic comforts of home, with spacious airy rooms, appeals to budget-minded travelers.

Highlights
  • Location one block from Cairns Esplanade
  • Outdoor pool
  • Apartment-style rooms available
Rooms

Brightly-patterned fabrics and locally-made rattan furniture complement the tropical setting. Rooms are spacious and all feature showers. Some rooms feature microwaves. One-bedroom suites have kitchenettes. Two- and three-bedroom apartments include two bathrooms, balconies, and full kitchen and laundry facilities.

Features

Chefs at award-winning Bayleaf Balinese Restaurant & Bar, the only Balinese restaurant in Cairns, are trained at the famous Bumbu Bali Restaurant & Cooking School in Bali. Menu options include braised beef in coconut milk, marinated grilled fish in banana leaf, and fried bean curd in turmeric sauce. Guests who prefer to cook their own meals - or just want a change from restaurants - can use the property's outdoor grill.

 

Guests are encouraged to stroll the grounds, including gardens showcasing native plants. Another relaxing option for guests is a relaxing afternoon on a chaise lounge overlooking the pool.   

 

Guests who need to catch up on email or need to research the area can use the computers in the Internet room.

Great value for this Hotel. Wished the location was closer to the Esplanade and Sea Terminal. Was a bit of a far walk to get to the sea terminal.

Friendly, clean, comfortable

It was a good value for 3 adults. The hotel gave us plenty of room. It was a 15-20 minute walk to town which was a negative but the accomadations were woth it. For the most part the staff was very helpful, especially the gal at the front desk who suggested a differnet reef trip than what I wanted to book. It was located in town rather than a 30 minute bus ride and a better value.
