Elysian RetreatWhitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia
If you find yourself in North Queensland and want to get a little off grid, welcome to Elysian. This boutique eco-island retreat is situated one one of the most secluded islands in the Whitsundays and from the moment you arrive you realise you have entered a world of Island chill you didn’t know existed.
With only 10 really cute beachfront villas catering to a maximum of 20 guests, this resort is an absolute delight if you really want to get away from it all.
With a small team of dedicated staff, the whole focus is on relaxation, beautifully prepared locally sourced food, organic spa treatments and for those feeling a tad more active a selection of aquatic adventures. There is also a lovely pool overlooking the beach.
After a day of intentionally doing not much, sit by the fire pit in the early evening with a glass of wine, staring at the water and the stars and then amble into the restaurant for an exquisite 3 course meal. It really takes a lot of beating.
Only Telstra mobile reception is available and limited wifi in the guest lounge.
The beach at Elysian is quite rocky and hard to swim on certain tides.
