Wow, what a hotel! If youa re looking for luxury then look no further, this hotel is absolutely amazing. Spectacular from the minute you arrive! The staff are so friendly and helpful 10/10 and food is deiicious. I highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to stay here again next time I'm in Port Douglas.

We stayed at 2 resorts, each for 3 nights and paid roughly the same amount of money for each resort. I would choose the Sea Temple again as being better value. We managed to secure a swim out 2-bed, 2-bathroom apartment through a private rental company who had great communication with us before and on the day of arrival. The apartments are perfect with everything you could need, even a washing machine and dryer. The pool is amazing, no more needs to be said. The location is about 10 minutes from PD's main street so I do highly recommend you hire a car for your stay or plan to cook (but who wants to cook on holiday?).

Resort pool is definitely the stand out feature for this resort, beautiful large lagoon style pool that wraps around the resort which features a whole heap of swim out apartments. Customer service was really great too - very attentive and room issues attended to quickly.

Me and my husband visited port douglas for a short stay and booked an accomodation at pullman sea temple, Port Douglas. We stayed at the studio spa apartment. Sweet little room, nicely done. Of course, the highlight being the jacuzzi spa in the room. The bedding was very comfortable and there is nice little balcony attached to the room. The room is exactly like that is seen in the pictures. The resort on the whole is nice and clean, although doesn’t have a lot of excitement...probably bcz january isnt the best time of the year to visit port douglas. Theres a nice pool bar for enjoying a drink by the water. What made our stay nicer, was the amazing hospitality and the very very warm and friendly staff. KAI KANKAL, the night manager is especially very very hospitable and warm. He made sure that our stay was comfortable and helped us with eveything we wanted and left us no chances of having any complaints. Very helpful and friendly. At the restaurant, BINDI, MEL from USA(sorry if i am not getting your name right) and the restaurant manager (sorry dunno the name) were again very very sweet in arranging us a nice dinner after our long flight. Bindi and Mel ensured we were happy with the food and it was as per our liking and made evey effort to make the jetlagged and tiring evening, relaxing for us. The front desk team was also very kind. The place in all is good, I wouldn’t say spectacular though but what made it stand out is their great staff. Beach is at a walkable distance from the property and it has three exits to the four mile beach. Nothing great about the beach though. Food is good. Although we stayed in a studio spa room, they have a couple of swim out rooms which appear to be great and we’d recommend to stay in one of those to have the best of ur stay at sea temple. Slight drawback is that the property isn’t very close to the main market or a lot of eateries, but the staff helps you arrange public transport and even contact bus service to help u reach the centre of the town.

We recently spent a week at the Pullman Sea Temple in January 2018 in a 3 bedroom beach villa. You can't see the beach - due to overgrown gardens but you don't miss much. The hotel was very welcoming and Tasmin at reception was extremely helpful to us helping locate a Dr for my mother. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa which was HUGE. It was great as we all had our own space to retreat to. We loved our own pool as the main pool was extremely busy and we often couldn't get a seat there. Also no shade at the big pool which can be an issue during summer. Breakfast was always good and staff very friendly. Rooms were clean and maintained daily. I would recommend and return in the future.

We visited for a week and had a 2 bedroom swim out apartment. The entrance to the hotel and the pool look beautiful but its a bit of a free for all. Kids were walking through the gardens and jumping from bridges and also climbing up on our swim out apartment. There doesn't seem to be any rules from the hotel in regards to this, definetly not what you expect from a 5 star hotel. The hotel also puts out inflatables which is a nice idea but these were not always collected at the end of the day, therefore when you get up, it takes a good 10 minutes to remove these floats from what is supposed to be a swim out apartment, this was really annoying everyday. The apartment itelf was clean and nicely furnished but its definetly looking dated and could do with a lick of paint. We were also woken by the housekeeping staff most mornings, they were outside our bedroom window talking so loudly about their backpacking experiences. We normally stay at the QT and would definetly stay there again. We won't return to the Sea Temple. We did go to the spa for treatments which was very nice and i would return to the spa, but would choose accommodation elsewhere.

The resort is beautiful, the room is amazing - loved having our own spa and private roof space, and the staff were lovely. We will definitely be going back. With two adults and two teenagers there was plenty of space to escape or be together. The pool is just perfect with a choice of swimming, walking around the property, sitting and sipping a cocktail or just floating - they cater for all it all.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights with my baby daughter. The hotel pool is amazing and big and so are the staff members. They were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the house keeping. They pretty much only made the bed, wiped down the bench and took out the bin. I expected to room to be vacuumed and mopped everyday and the bathroom to be done. My daughter crawls and I was worrried about her crawling as it wasn’t very clean. Used tissues were still left around the room. I had a garbage bag filled with empty bottles and rubbish, that wasn’t taken out. Overall a great place to stay, just the housekeeping could have been better. Other than that, we loved our first family trip!

Love this place! Great room - clean, spacious, comfortable beds. Pool is sensational. And lots of people leave their flotation toys behind for anyone to use - bonus for the kids. Breakfast had good selection - they will do poached eggs & omelettes to order. Recommend doing this as scrambled eggs are a bit average. Have to pay extra for decent coffee but that’s fairly standard in most hotels now. Fair way out of town but shuttles come past fairly often. $5 one way or $8 return pp. Looking forward to returning.

We started our vacation at this resort. After many hours of traveling from the US, we arrived to a 2 bedroom, one bathroom suite that was on the ground floor with a small pool. My first impression was the suite smelled musty. Also, I was surprised that a two bedroom would share one bathroom. The unit was comfortable overall, and had a washer/dryer which was a plus. Definitely not what I would consider a top notch suite, more like an average time share. Service was lacking. The reception desk was understaffed and had a “trainee”. The woman that showed us around was pleasant, but full of empty promises. We had an evening tour to a “wildlife habitat” and our understanding was that the hotel receptionist that checked us in was going to have someone pick us up. No one showed up to pick us up and we were stranded at the habitat. We tried to call the hotel and no one answered. There is no UBER there, so we were panicking. Finally, a public shuttle came by and we got a ride back to our hotel. How can no one answer a hotel phone? When we came back and asked them why no one answered they said they were busy. No excuse!
