      Adventure of a lifetime”

      Everything about our trip to Orpheus Island was a dream. The food was delicious, the facilities were gorgeous, staff was lovely, and management was attentive to our every wish and need. No picture or review could ever do this place justice. Make sure to snorkel the reefs, visit the clam gardens, watch the Milky Way, feed Tom the grouper, and charter a boat Hinchinbrook Island with Jen T! Oh, and don't forget to sip coconut water out of an actual coconut on a hammock!! I can't wait to return!!

      First class food, service, and facilities. Staff could not do more for you. Minor Con. Left a $25 dollar tip in the room for the cleaning staff and it was taken along with our message to them, but no thanks were given to us. We didn’t need to tip as the stay was $2000 AUS a day. Otherwise loved everything about Orpheus Island.
