5 Luxury Places To Stay In Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach Accommodation

Airlie Beach has become one of the most well-known places in Australia with an increasing number of tourists visiting every year. Although the town itself is well worth a visit, with its laid-back vibe and beautiful sea views – the real reason over 640,000 tourists flock here is to visit the Great Barrier Reef and the ‘Whitsundays’, made up of 74 islands in Tropical North Queensland.

With accommodation to suit every budget; we have listed the best 5 luxury places to stay in Airlie beach.

Voted as #2 on Tripadvisor for Hotels in Airlie Beach the waterfront Coral Seal Resort is short stroll via the stunning oceanfront boardwalk and easily accessible to the main street. The resort has the iconic ’The rocks’ pool with a great atmosphere and postcard views. We highly recommend the Ocean View rooms for a spectacular outlook across the turquoise water.
