The Best Kept Secret Beach Retreat on the Great Barrier Reef
"ZEN Beach Retreat is an exclusive, sophisticated but understated luxury getaway for up to 22 guests. Positioned on the beachfront overlooking the Southern Great Barrier Reef, it’s a real find in this part of Queensland."
When nature's inspiration & authenticity meet elegance and comfort. ZEN is hidden behind high walls of moucharabieh, setting the tone of the warm, private and intimate atmosphere of ZEN Beach Retreat. As soon as you pass the bamboo gate you feel the tropical relaxation of the verdant gardens and let your senses drift with the musical melody of the fountains.
Your exploration of the Great Barrier Reef & Beach lifestyle starts when you reach the heart of your relaxed luxury beach retreat. With 10,000 square feet (over 950 square metres) of indoor / outdoor living.
Beautiful views and doors that open up completely for you to enjoy the breathtaking ocean and beachfront views. You feel the South Pacific is all yours!
The perfect bridge at the heart of the retreat, the Bali Hut provides plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing.
Surrounded by tropical gardens alongside the 10m magnesium pool / spa the Bali Hut keeps cool throughout the year.
Design in a contemporary style, we are an art- loving family where Pascaline's French interior design experience merges natural materials and sophisticated textures in a private haven for guests.
Facing the beach, the light diffuses through the large picture windows on a contemporary decor where nature is omnipresent.
In the Ocean Lounge open space, a quartet of French vintage armchairs - by Prouve, are gathered near natural driftwood and molten aluminium furniture that create a relaxing yet professional ambience.
The retreat has loads of space for entertaining depending on your plans – you can prepare meals for yourself, or we can bring in the services of a private chef.
Sample the local recommended restaurants or just unwind with a delicious snack on the Sky Lounge overlooking the sea.
