Thank you, I had a great break away.
Some of the activities we participated included
- Kuranda Markets (wouldn’t recommend due to lack of variety and poor quality goods)
- Kuranda butterfly sanctuary (a beautiful and peaceful experience. You get the opportunity to see the butterflies in all stages of life and a large variety of butterflies not normally seen)
- Breakfast with the birds at the wildlife centre (it was lovely being able to get up close with a variety of exotic birds)
- Daintree River Cruise (a great opportunity to view crocodiles. The guide was very informative and engaging)
- Daintree Forest Walk (a beautiful experience, we had a great guide who brought the forest alive. Would highly recommend)
- Drifting on Mossman River (a fun and peaceful experience. Would only attempt if you have moderate or above fitness).
- Day trip to Low Island ( a great option if you don’t want to travel out to the main reef as trip out is a lot shorter and you can still experience the reef as well as be on land if you prefer). The staff were fantastic and provided a lovely buffet lunch as part of the experience)
- Port Douglas markets (great markets with quality goods at reasonable prices). Get there early as it is very popular).
We couldn’t fault the service we received. The staff are very friendly and eager to help and their communication was excellent. Nothing was ever a problem. I would have no hesitation in using FNQ apartments again in the future.
I am happy for you to use my comments on your website.
I hope this helps.
I have stayed at the Pullman Sea Temple before but this was our first experience using FNQ.
Very impressed with the service in securing the apartment , the cost was very competitive and up to our arrival regular contact with FNQ was comforting in understanding the details around the process to pick up keys etc and details about the resort.
When we arrived the staff were courteous and clear in directions and assistance regarding the apartment.
In all a very pleasant experience and highly recommend FNQ to any prospective user.
Thanks for your email. We had a great time away - as we had two kids under 3 we didn’t do as much, however we went to Port Douglas for shopping and cafes, Port Douglas Markets which were nice!, we drove into Cairns and went and had lunch at the Marina and had a look at the shopping, and we went to the Kuranda Markets.
The apartment was great - service through FNQ was perfect, since the initial enquiry, to check out :) I will be recommending to family and friends. and when we return will go through FNQ again! We loved the apartment and the pool access was perfect for us as made it so easy with the kids.
Happy for you to use my feedback :)
Thanks to FNQ Apartments for a wonderful holiday at Sea Temple Port Douglas!
All areas of communication in planning, booking, travelling & refining arrangements were seamless. Staff were always available & helpful.
The apartment was superb.... great rate & an enormous, beautiful bath!!! Just delightful.
Sea Temple pools & services were superb.
For convenience we ate & drank frequently at the hotel restaurant & bar.
We also ate at our all time favourite Port restaurant Salsa..... superb!
April was s great time of year to relax in Port Douglas
I was very happy with the apartment, I have been before and those rooms tick all the boxes for us. I was very happy with the service you provided us, all was great.
Everything from accommodation to the transfers you organised were fantastic and easy... Everything went like clockwork. I did a couple of fishing charters first was with Akoona charters and it was terrific. Great guy who knows his business. The second one not as enjoyable. I took my wife so she could try something different but she was completely put off by the xxx crew. I wasn't impressed either. We love Port Douglas we will be back maybe even to live!! We love the sea temple but we will be back in the cooler months so may try somewhere different.
Thanks for everything.
Grant and Michelle
We enjoyed our stay very much. It was an easy check in/out with no complications what so ever. The only disapointment was a frying pan that we could not use (we had bough some sausages and steak that we could not cook as the frying pan had not been cleaned and had thick black residue that could not be removed). Other than that, the place was clean and how we imagined it would be, we would love to stay there again and any other places you have to offer!
Thanks again Snez
Thanks for your email. We had a lovely time at the Sea Temple Port Douglas. The rooms (135/136) were spacious and well positioned to the pool and pool bar, which was great. We would happily stay there again.
Just wanted to advise of our stay at the Sea Temple in Port Douglas from 15th-22nd May. LOVED IT. Sea Temple was great. The apartment was excellent. Beautiful. Our only complaint was on our oven cook plate it only had x1 knob for the 4 burners. The second bedroom bed, I was told was very uncomfortable and hard? Apart from that Thank you and you will be seeing me again next year for another holiday in Port Douglas.
Thank you so much for you quality service, couldn't ask for a more friendlier team and information galore. Being a first time traveler to Pt Douglas, your service and information made out trip so much easier to plan. Can't thank you enough. We spent a lot of time just relaxing at the Sea Temple as it was so beautiful. A couple of the main highlights were the Quick Silver trip to the Barrier 'Reef, snorkeling was amazing. We also thoroughly enjoyed our Daintree Tour, our host Ben was supa informative and just so friendly, he really made the day a great experience.
Thank you again.
Di and Michael
Thanks for the email.
We had a really terrific holiday and are already wondering when we can get our booking sorted for next year. We really appreciated your advice on accommodation especially as we left it so late this year and were left with limited options. The Sea Temple suited us perfectly and to be honest we barely left the resort. We did no touristy activities. Ate out 3 times, spent some time shopping in Port Douglas, walked on the beach once and attended the market on the last day. Very low maintenance really. We loved it. Thanks for your service and willingness to help at every step of the way. It was a pleasure and made our holiday easy and stress free. In terms of the apartment, it presented beautifully and was very comfortable. We had an issue with the fridge which was addressed immediately. he outdoor table was broken which would have been an easy thing to repair, and whilst this didn’t directly impact our stay, we were concerned through our stay that we might be blamed for it. Also there was a small amount of mould on the master shower wall which was out of character when compared with the state of the rest of the apartment. Overall the accommodation was extremely clean and comfortable.
On behalf of my parents and I, thank you for your assistance and that of the FNQ Apartments team. We had a fantastic time in Port Douglas and appreciated the suggestions you provided on the car hire (which we would use again without hesitation) and loved the accommodation at the Sea Temple Spa and Resort. We had quite a relaxing time and went sight seeing to the Mossman Gorge, in addition to the local sights around Port Douglas. My father and I took a charter on the Dragon Lady vessel and had a wonderful day fishing and enjoying a beautiful day on the water. It was also a productive day for my Dad who caught the most fish on the day! We have been very impressed with the service received by the team and would highly recommend your services to others considering a Far North Queensland trip.
The overall experience of our time in Port Douglas was amazing. From the initial booking to check-out was so easy and great communication from you guys. The day of our arrival FNQ communicated with us and were so accommodating regarding, timings, directions and when we were running behind the time we predicted, courtesy call was make to us to enjoy we were ok from the drive from cairns to PD. Excellent customer service in our eyes. The apartment at the Sea Temple was more than anything we imagined. The pictures just didn't do it justice (although 10/10 in the pics). Everything was already there and the little things in which we wouldn't have thought of (example washing powder) was there for our convenience. Port Douglas it self was amazing, friendly people (locals/tourists), one recommendation for a low key dinner, "Chilli's" next to the Marina. That place served the best pizza's we have ever had compared to Melbourne, and the staff were lovely and to also add the BYO option also hit the spot. Overall 10/10 - Happy customers from Melbourne. Recommendations to family and friends have already been made.
Our impressions of the holiday was we couldnt believe it looked exactly like the pictures! There was no disappointment at all and we didnt want to return home! The standards were very high and your customer service was amazing. We have already recommended you to many people who are going to be booking soon and i sure will spread the word contiously! There was no faults we could pick with your service or a stay! It was amazing! Sucks to be back to reality! Many thanks once again! I'll be in touch soon to rebook :) Samantha
Just a quick thank you to the team at FNQ especially Sara for the initial booking of how holiday and Eddie whom we meet and let us into our apartment and really appreciate the upgrade, it was fantastic, the experience was awesome, hope to speak with you on our next visit.
The accommodation was FANTASTIC! I couldn’t fault it one little bit. Sea Temple were so accommodating and the team at FNQ Apartments were great on arrival, during and check out. Thank you so much for all your time and helping me out with all my questions. We want to buy an apartment at Sea Temple now however, just need to win Lotto to do so. Would love to stay on your email list and get any deals that come through. Our wedding party are coming back in Easter now and would like to rent the same apartment …… we’re heading back too! It was great. From start to finish you guys really went out of your way to help us answering all questions via email (my preferred method of communication) straight away.
Thanks so much for all your help. You really did assist in making our Wedding week PERFECT!
We had a fabulous time at Sea Temple Port Douglas, thank you! The apartment was simply stunning. It was modern, clean and relaxing. The swim-up room was to die for! The service we received was friendly and courteous, and overall very helpful. Before I made the booking, you were informative and understanding to my individual needs, and eased any concerns I had. Whilst we were there we played golf at Sea Temple, went snorkelling with Calypso and walked through the daintree at Mossman Gorge. I've now fallen in love with FNQ, and we have you to thank! Thanks for making our holiday possible.
All the best,
Thanks so much for organizing our awesome stay at sea temple resort port Douglas. We really had an amazing time, this being our first to port Douglas. We even got to check in at 10:00am and check out really late (4:30pm) when we were due to go to the airport. This really saved us a big headache of just sitting around wasting the day waiting for our shuttle to take us to the airport. (we even managed to go for an afternoon swim!)
Thanks again, Nathan and Atara.
I can’t thank you enough, for the considerable efforts you and your team went to in providing a remarkable holiday for me and my family. Firstly the overnight accommodation in the Mantra Trilogy Cairns was an excellent choice to begin our stay before heading to Port Douglas. The suggestion of having a half day tour to Green Island on the Big Cat on the Saturday morning following, was certainly the way to go, as it suited really well before the drive north. Eddy from the Boutique Collection phoned me on our way to Port Douglas to confirm our 2.30pm arrival time at the Sea Temple and we both met there on time for him to check us in. I really thought that was considerate of him to meet us at the Sea Temple rather than us just go and pick up the keys. He then conveyed us to our plunge pool apartment which was to say the very least, excellent and he then mentioned there would be an upgrade to a three bedroom apartment at no further cost which was unbelievable. All our day trips along with the hire car that you organised for us were perfect and suited myself, wife and three children. Sara, I can’t thank you enough, to be able to book everything through FNQ Apartments was by far the way to go and thanks for providing further discounts on our day tours where you could. I would go as far to say, that this has been our best holiday to date and please pass my regards on to Eddy from the Boutique Collections for his kindness and generosity of upgrading us at the Sea Temple. All the very best Sara and I will certainly be talking too you in the future when we return to Port Douglas (very soon I hope).
Back to the grind, it does'nt take long for everything to return to normal and the holiday that you so much look forward to is forgotten amongst running kids around and work. We had a lovely time, the weather was fantastic(in fact a bit hot for Tasmanians at times)our accommodation in Port Douglas and Cairns was great. Having a swim-up apartment at the Sea Temple was worth the extra, our son was in the pool from daylight to dark and he made friends with some kids next door which kept him entertained. The Sea Temple is very family friendly. We did'nt do very many tourist activites, our idea of a weeks holiday in the tropics is to eat, sleep and swim. We own a small business which is very demanding and only have a weeks annual leave,so we make the most of catching up on some rest. This is the first time I have used a website such as yourselves to book accommodation, I usually go direct to the accommodation place or a travel agent and I must say I was a bit sceptical. I am full of praise to you and Brenda, everything went smoothly and I will certainly be using your services next year when we return to visit Palm Cove. Thankyou for making our holiday so enjoyable.
We loved, loved, loved our Port Douglas Holiday. The Sea Temple Resort was great. We felt very comfortable and relaxed within this tropical oasis. However we did expect a little better service in the restaurant being in a five star resort. Due to this we chose to dine out at other restaurants in the area. The 3 bedroom swim out apartment was an excellent choice for us as a family, allowing our children the luxury of coming and going from the pool at their leisure, whilst we could relax on the sunlounges off the patio. I can't wait to come back and stay here again. Port Douglas as a destination was fantastic. We swam at the Great Barrier Reef with Quicksilver Cruises. Awesome experience. We took a drive to the Daintree Rainforest Discovery Center, which also was wonderful. As mentioned above we dined out a many local Restaurants which were great each in their own unique way. Macrossan Street offered a variety of shops which we purchased many souvenirs and some indigenous art. Could not have been happier with the service provided by you guys. Everything was organised smoothly and the email updates were great. Check in was easy, and at no time did i need to make a call for assistance regarding anything. We are very greatful that the apartment was offered at rate that we were able to enjoy this magnificant resort that we would otherwise not be able to. We would definately use your services in the future without any hestitation and would have no problem referring your services to family and friends.
I would like to thank everyone at FNQ Apartments for their outstanding service in making the trip to Port Douglas beyond expectations. The staff at FNQ went out of their way to make sure everything was catered for in what I had asked in regards to accommodation, and I would love to thank Sara for the upgrade to the Sea Temple which was amazing (what a place!). As stated, FNQ made sure it would be a great holiday. Including the great service from FNQ, I was also very pleased with the holiday to Port Douglas from Dining out in the many wonderful restaurants and cafes to all the activities there was to offer. Snorkeling the GBR was a great day out and all the tour staff on board the Calypso were professional and really made the day special. Also must mention Down Under Tours, Ricky our Tour Guide to the Daintree was brilliant and full of knowledge about an amazing part of Australia. It was great to see the Daintree and surrounds such as Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation. And 4 Mile Beach is pretty awesome as well. Thanks FNQ for all your wonderful efforts and service.
Will be back for sure!!!
Brenda/Sara Our holiday was absolutely wonderful and the apartment was really terrific. That was our first visit to Sea Temple and will definitely not be our last! We have been to Port Douglas a couple of times previously so we didn’t participate in any external activities. We have been to the Barrier Reef, Hartley’s Crocodile Farm, the Train & Cable Car voyage as well as a few other tourist attractions on other visits. This was purely a rest and relaxation holiday! The standard of the apartment at Sea Temple was really great. Well appointed, very comfortable and we loved the swim out location. We also put a request for a two bathroom apartment and were really thrilled that we were able to have this. We did have some difficulty with the after hours pass but Chris put a call in to your office and a replacement, as well as an extra blanket, were left in our room very promptly - which was very much appreciated, thank you. All in all, we were thrilled to bits with every aspect of our stay and will definitely be contacting you again for a future visit in the not too distant future.
Many Thanks & Kind Regards,
We had a fantastic stay at the Sea Temple. The room was very well appointed and we were surprised to see there were a few crockery/cooking facilities in the room - this was great for us as eating out all the time gets a bit much. The pool lagoon is beautiful and definitely the key feature of the hotel. Port Douglas itself is stunning and a destination we plan to return to again - especially in winter.
Kirstie & Matt
Thanks so much for all your help. You and your team were so very helpful and my boyfriend and I couldnt have asked for a better holiday! The Sea Temple Resort which we booked through you was exactly what we needed. Everything was perfect. We were very happy with the service we recieved from yourself and other members of your team. We loved it so much that we are definately hoping to come back. We will definately use your services for any future visits to Port Douglas. Once again, thanks for the great time, great prices and great service!
Heidi and Michael.
We were very impressed with our holiday and using FNQ apartments. The Sea Temple is beautiful and we will definitely be coming back, and definitely staying more nights next time! By using FNQ Apartments we saved alot of money and we could not have been more satisfied. Thank you for the wonderful experience, we will hopefully be talking to you again sometime soon!
We had a fantastic time in Port Douglas; the accommodation at the Sea Temple was perfect. I think we had the best penthouse apartment in the resort at such a reasonable price. We had a great time playing golf at the Sea Temple, we spent a day at Mossman Gorge & the Daintree River, we had a spa at the Mii Spa in the Sea temple and then had a beautiful day diving on the great barrier reef. Port Douglas was full of life and had great places to eat. The 6 course degustation menu at the Nautilus restaurant was worth every penny. Thanks for all your help with arrange my surprise wedding anniversary, great service and communication throughout.
Ed & Karen xx
Yes we had a fabulous holiday. Everything was done so smoothly. The apartment was stunning and very well equipped. We set up an account at reception as you suggested and that made life easy. Port Douglas had so many 5 star restaurants to choose from we couldn’t eat in them all. Again your suggestions were superb: Nautilus; Zeus; 2 Fish and Harrisons. We enquired about trips to the reef through the hotel and they suggested the intimate Synergy Catamaran. Best choice! Only 12 people, taken to a secluded reef and cooked a fresh seafood barbie! It was divine.
Jo and Brian
I am happy to give you feedback on our recent trip and please feel free to use it as you wish. David and I were extremely happy with the entire experience – Sea Temple was a fantastic place to stay – not too busy or noisy and the staff there were fabulous. Port Douglas was a perfect getaway - a beautiful place to relax and plenty to do in terms of day trips / tours also great places to eat (Nautillus and On the Inlet were favorites). We enjoyed 2 days in the Daintree and Cape Tribulation and it was not too far to drive. The apartment was beautiful - very clean and ideally located within the resort for a perfect stay – the weather at that time was excellent each day around 26 and sunny. The swim up I would highly recommend and worth the extra $$. The booking process was also simple and your staff prompt and helpful with booking transfers etc Thank you for an enjoyable stay – we will definitely be in touch to book a return trip.
