 The Beach Club

Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Queensland, Australia

The Beach Club, Hamilton Island is an adult’s only resort that is truly a tropical oasis in a gorgeous setting complete with a private infinity pool looking out to the Coral Sea. We loved it.

The Room

Lovely large open-planned room with a king bed, and lounge area with coffee table and LCD TV.   Sliding glass doors open to a private outdoor area with sun lounges looking out over the tropical garden to the sea. Full-length white shutters add to the room’s tropical glamour.

The bathroom was spacious and functional but not overly luxurious.

The Location

A perfect spot in front of Catseye beach. Lounge chairs are reserved for guest use on the beach. The Beach Club’s restaurant and common lounge area look out over the very attractive infinity pool to the sea. There is a tropical paradise feel to the resort and it is very hard to leave.

The Services

The Beach Club prides itself on personalized service and we were not disappointed. We were met at the airport and escorted in a golf buggy to the resort. We were greeted with a warm towel and tropical juice as we waited in the lounge area to be checked in. The staff were totally professional and so very helpful throughout our stay. The Manager greeted us by name and personally escorted us to the marina to meet our boat Fluffy Muffy!

Breakfast was served at the restaurant overlooking the pool and out to sea. A very hard way to start the day! There was a buffet with a selection of cereals, fruit, bread and pastries as well as a hot breakfast cooked to order from a small but delicious breakfast menu. You would be hard pressed to rate this breakfast as anything less than excellent. We also enjoyed real cappuccinos (yes plural!) – thank you Beach Club for looking after us coffeeophiles!

We had drinks at the sailing club watching the sunset (highly recommended!) and then back to the resort to watch the full moon rise over the sea and a lovely romantic three course dinner – it doesn’t get much better than that! The food and the service were excellent. If we had one small complaint it would be the limited wine list.

We would happily have dined there every night!

The Fitness Facilities

The resort has access to non-motorized water activities as well as the private infinity pool and gym. Spa treatments are also on offer. The beach is very attractive and good for a walk but watch out where you enter the water for a swim as walking on coral is not pleasant.

Hamilton Island has a wonderful Yacht Club and Marina with a selection of great restaurants and bars as well as a few shops.

The Marina from The Yacht Club, Hamilton Island

There is a great golf course for the golfers, and a range of other activities such as shooting range. One of the main attractions however is experiencing the Whitsunday Isles and of course Whitehaven beach.

The Beach Club, Hamilton Island was a wonderful experience. It met and exceeded our expectations. Happy Holidays!
