Kewarra beach - so peaceful
Very nice resort, staff were lovely. Some of the bungalows are looking a little tired but they are clean. The restaurant and bar overlooking the tall trees is lovely, just so different. Close to all the restaurants in trinity beach and a good base for most tourist attractions in the area

Unusual hotel in the Jungle
The chalet overlooking the lagoon, the restaurant, the wildlife
Just what we wanted, rather than a hotel room, this was an unusual resort, but with all the amenities of a hotel, with friendly reception staff and a lovely outdoor restaurant. The restaurant was first class, the food was excellent. Ate there two nights and both times were really good food.

valerie and troy thank you
Our stay at Kewarra Beach Resort for the week was perfect and we didn't want it to end. From the private beach to the lagoon pool it was the perfect get away from it all place to be. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for that perfect secluded hideaway.

Fantastic Location

Really enjoyable stay in a beautiful location. The resort staff were really friendly and helpful. The pool was great! The only slight negative was the limited menu but plenty of restaurants in nearby Trinity Beach and Palm Cove and the location and staff far outweighed this!

A little piece of paradise
location, the pool and the bungalows
As soon as I stepped out of the car and into reception it felt like I was on holiday :) The welcome drink was very much appreciated and the check in was quick. We had a beach bungalow and it was wonderful to be able to see and hear the water from the balcony, the size was good and I loved the dressing room. There were some small ants in the bathroom but you can't go anywhere in north qld without encountering them so I was happy to share (it was a small price to pay for paradise ;). We had the full breakfast option and although not a huge selection you could choose how you wanted your eggs, it definitely set us up for the day. I loved the little torch on the key ring to help you get back to your bungalow at night, lots of wildlife, beautiful beach with stinger net and 2 wonderful pools which, due to the low season, we pretty much had to ourselves. Definitely want to go back.

The nature, the people and the hot water :)
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Kewarra Beach. It was beautiful. The only negative (which is very minor) was that there wasn't much of a variety at the restaurant for dinner...but on Friday and Sunday nights there was a beach party dinner with pizzas which was great!

convenient base in tropical surroundings
beautiful beach and tropical rainforest setting, convenient location to many attractions and day trips
We really enjoyed our stay at Kewarra. I was doing work at the local uni (only 10 min away) and Kewarra turned out to be a much better base than hotels 45 min south in Cairns. The beautiful beach and tropical rainforest setting was absolutely amazing. We stayed in early/mid September and the weather was perfect for sleeping with the windows open and just the ceiling fans (no air con needed). We loved waking each morning to the sounds of the kookaburras and other jungle birds, and were just amazed at the local colony of flying fox bats that moved around each dawn and dusk. We had a hire car which made it so convenient to do day trips to Kuranda, Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef, down to the waterfront and esplanade in Cairns, and even up to the Daintree. We thought we were settling on a jungle vs. beachfront room, to save some money, but we're really glad we stayed in the rainforest location (room 70 - a bit of a walk to the main lodge but just a dreamy setting). Only very minor complaints were the hot water was limited so we had to be careful about the length of our showers (3 of us), and the restaurant's menu got boring after 8 days (assuming most won't stay as long so this won't be an issue). We would absolutely recommend to others!
