9 Best Places to Stay in Australia

1. Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island

The island of Lord Howe can be found in the middle spot between Brisbane and Sydney. From there, head east out into the ocean. It’s kind of like Hawaii for Australia. In the middle of the ocean, two big mountains rise up and surround a turquoise lagoon. The Capella Lodge is on the east side of the island, near this lagoon.

The island is surrounded by the world’s southernmost coral reef, which makes for calm waves and great diving. The lodge has a number of suites that make a beautiful connection with the island’s natural settings. In this tropical paradise, you won’t want to stay inside, so the lodge offers spa treatments and eating outside.

2. Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania

This very modern hotel is a place to visit in and of itself. The main building is made of curved steel, and the hotel rooms are built on the side of a hill with a view of Cove Beach. The only city in Tasmania, Hobart, is about a three-hour drive away. Saffire Freycinet is a place to get away. The comforts at the Saffire Freycinet, along with the stunning views from every room, make it the perfect place to unwind.

The award-winning spa has services with views of the bay, and you can eat fresh oysters while being knee-deep in the estuary. Don’t worry—the wait staff will bring the table with the white cloth out to you in the water. You can count on that level of service and fun at the Saffire Freycinet, Tasmania.

3. Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney

The outside of the Shangri-La Hotel isn’t very interesting, but the rooms, service, history, location, and view are what you pay for. The Shangri-La Hotel stands tall over Sydney Harbor, right next to the old Customs House and The Rocks, the oldest part of Sydney. The hotel is right on the path that leads to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, so most of the rooms have a view of the famous Opera House. The famous Australia Heritage Hotel is only a short walk away from The Rocks, where you can eat. After dinner, go back to your room and watch the sun go down over the Opera House. That’s as Sydney as it gets.

4. Qualia Resort, Hamilton Island

A lot of people think that Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands is the world’s most beautiful beach. The Qualia Resort on nearby Hamilton Island is the closest place to the famous white sand beach on deserted Cumberland Island. This boutique resort isn’t very big, but the way it’s built makes it feel very big. To bring nature into the resort experience, the whole building is made of wood from the area.

Many parts of the resort are open to the beautiful outdoors. For explorers only, this retreat is a haven. Every day, boat trips take you to the Whitsundays and the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef. You will not believe the shades of blue in the ocean when you swim in the infinity pool at the Qualia Resort. It looks like the pool goes right into the water.

6. Silky Oaks Lodge, Far North Queensland

There is a lot to discover in Far North Queensland. Most people who drive up the coast from Cairns to get to Daintree National Park stop at Mossman Gorge. The Silky Oaks Lodge is a classy place to stay right at the start of the river. It looks like a hotel you’d imagine as a kid. You’d think the whole building is a tree house because of how well the solid wood design blends into the forest.

The peaceful, clear waters of the Mossman River flow by below the hotel. You can feel the past of the Aboriginal people coming out of the gorge, where you can go on a Dreamtime Walkabout with an Aboriginal guide. The gorge lets cool winds flow out and cover the Silky Oaks Lodge to keep it cool in the tropics.

7. Longitude 131, Ayers Rock

Latitude 131 was made to honor Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, which is an Aboriginal holy place. Uluru is a single rock that stands on its own under the ground. It’s as big as a rock. There are only serious travelers at the holy spot, which is way out in the middle of Australia. There are eco-friendly tents that make up the camp. Each one has high-end bedding, linens, and air conditioning. People eat outside, under the shade of Ayers Rock. The whole thing makes you feel connected to the desert’s wild beauty.

8. Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island

There are not many people around the Southern Ocean Lodge. It is in Southern Australia. The Southern Ocean Lodge is another eco-friendly place to stay. It is on the southern tip of Adelaide’s Kangaroo Island. A lot of people call Kangaroo Island the Galapagos of Australia. Kangaroos and other natural animals live all over the island. You might even come across someone close.

The rooms are built along the side of a cliff, so every suite has a view of the ocean. The main hall of the hotel is on the top floor, where there is an endless hot tub with a view of the cold Great Southern Ocean. If you look out, you can see Antarctica and hear the sound of the world’s largest uncharted ocean.

9. Park Hyatt, Sydney

When it comes to location, the Park Hyatt beats the Shangri-La Hotel. The Park Hyatt is right on the edge of the south side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and has a clear view of the famous Sydney Opera House. This view, on the other hand, is from across the water at Circular Quay, which makes it more memorable.

The hotel is built into the hillside that leads down to Circular Quay. The rooms are set up like stairs on top of each other, so you won’t be able to see the Shangri-La from very high up. The Park Hyatt is a luxurious landmark in Sydney that has all the usual Hyatt features, like a spa, a great restaurant, and a bar.
