Contemporary Hotels is the Primary Agent of Bedarra Island Villa.
Bedarra Island Villa can be found on the secluded East Bedarra Island, Queensland where the white sand beach wraps the turquoise water framed by palms. This beach house is the ultimate in privacy and beauty - the perfect romantic escape. Experience paradise when you book and stay at this unspoilt Bedarra Island retreat. The exclusive accommodation in your very own luxury beach house is moments from Dunk Island and Mission Beach - but only on Bedarra can you experience pure heaven and tranquility!
Bedarra Island is the closest thing to tropical paradise in Australia – and Bedarra Island Villa is one of the most beautiful private places to stay in Australia's famed Great Barrier Reef. This is the signature property in the Contemporary Hotels collection.
The Villa is positioned near the waters edge on a private two-acre estate which wraps around a palm-framed white-sand beach. Prominent artists, photographers and writers consider Doorila Cove to be the most beautiful beach on the island. Here you can swim or snorkel for hours in the warm clear turquoise waters of the coral sea.
The functional design of the Villa is languidly relaxed, yet comfortably modernist – with interiors by renowned interior architect Robert Davidov. The Villa has two queen-sized bedrooms and an open-plan lounge/dining space which expands out to a large deck. All enjoy stunning views of the beautiful coral sea and the distant islands, extending to the oceans of the Great Barrier Reef, South Pacific and beyond.
There is also a Studio on the property that was originally built by prominent artist Noel Wood in the early 20th century, the Studio was his residence for more than 50 years. Since renovated by Ian Moore, it maintains many original features including the gin and cognac bottle feature wall, a stone fireplace, bamboo paneling and a collection of original bamboo furniture items handmade by Mr Wood himself.
There are only a small number of private homes on East Bedarra Island and there is no public access – so you will never see any day-trippers. The property and its surrounds have been documented in many books and magazines, including Wallpaper, Vogue Living and Belle. The Villa also featured on Channel Seven's travel show The Great Outdoors.
Detailed directions on how to get to the island will be provided at the time of booking. Below is an overview of the options:
Most guests hire a car from Cairns and take a scenic two-hour drive to Mission Beach where they stock up on supplies at the Woolworths there, then catch the water taxi direct to East Bedarra which is only a very short ride. Our caretakers will meet guests on the beach and help them with all their provisions.
High flyers can charter a helicopter from Cairns Airport to drop you on the beach at Bedarra Island.
