Located on a secluded beach at Palm Cove, 20 minutes north of Cairns, Alamanda Palm Cove Resort by Lancemore introduces a little bit of Thailand to Australia. Its 68 rooms range from one to three bedroom suites, emulating the pared-down sensuality of Thai design. Stand out features include high ceilings, Thai silk drapes, and floor-to-ceiling windows that open out to individual patios. Guests can relax poolside or on the beach, unwind in the beach-front spa, or participate in a wide choice of activities that range from scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef to rainforest treks and white water rafting. Dining at NuNu Restaurant is a culinary treat, where the menu offers a mix of imaginative international cuisine and Asian-influenced dishes. All in all, Alamanda Palm Cove Resort by Lancemore is simply gorgeous.
