Sea Temple Port Douglas - Family Favourite

Sea Temple Port Douglas is definitely a family favourite, consistently booked out well in advance for school holidays, guests are voting with their feet and returning there year after year like homing pigeons. Of course, every family has their favourite type of Apartment or location in the Resort, but not everyone is lucky enough to secure that much sought after prize – the Swim Up. So what makes these the most popular of all?


Swim Ups are the Apartment type located on the ground floor, right on the gorgeous lagoon swimming pool with a private pool deck and entry into the pool. Doesn’t sound like much of a prize really does it? But families love them and Sea Temple Port Douglas is renowned for having a swag of Swim Ups. 33 to be exact.

To be fair, families love the Sea Temple Resort & Spa as some of the best holiday accommodation Port Douglas has to offer. The Swim Ups are just one of the drawcards along with the magnificent lagoon swimming pool that has been rated one of the best in the Southern hemisphere and is, in my opinion, the best in North Queensland. Located on the beach at the southern end of the lovely Four Mile Beach Port Douglas, protected by natural bushland, Sea Temple Resort is an oasis of serenity in our otherwise hectic world.

Families escape there year after year to enjoy a true break, to revel in the tropical lifestyle and recharge ready for their usually hectic lives.

The Swim Ups are a favoured part of this relaxation.  Think about this, no matter the age of the children, a Swim Up at Sea Temple Port Douglas makes for a great holiday.

Got a little bub? Once the baby is settled for their day time nap or for bed at night, Mum and Dad are free to lounge by the pool or even in the pool and still be in very close proximity to their baby. You really are just metres away.  Most parents take their baby monitor with them for added assurance.

You have toddlers and small children?  Don’t they just love the water?  For peace of mind you have child proof gates leading from the patio to the pool deck.  Your little ones will not be near the water unless you give the go ahead. And then swimming is easy, drop the towels on the patio chair and jump into the pool. Your very own billabong, right outside your door.  What could be easier?

Older kids are just mad for the pool, they seem to have the capacity to live in it, hour after hour, day after day and a Swim Up at Sea Temple Port Douglas is the ultimate dream.  From the moment the pool is open until it closes at night, you can relax on your patio and supervise your children. Or choose to join them for every moment of the day and share a kids dream.

So the Swim Ups are not the only option for Apartments at Sea Temple Resort Port Douglas, just the favourite and be warned, if you want to share in that delight, you will need to book early to get one for the peak holiday times. You should be thinking 12 months in advance.
