We stayed three nights and loved it. Hope to return to beautiful Port Douglas again. The grounds had gorgeous gardens, and the pool and surrounds were lovely. We really loved the room and decor, and the bed was very, very comfy! I visited the day spa and highly recommend it, the staff (Tara?) were just so lovely and excellent at...

From the very first contact with QT Port I had a great feeling about our stay. I rang quickly to book a short weekend away - just to shake off the office blues. The staff member was hilarious and the booking happened in a flash. YAY! The email offering early check in was a nice touch, which continued with our...

This place is beautiful! When you walk in- its and open and there is seating all around to enjoy the feel of the place. There is plenty of shade and open spaces. The Lilly pad ponds are fun to watch... And if your lucky, maybe you will see the huge eel! The pool is fantastic and a site to see...

Dear nursesteve1965, It appears that Robin Sharma was the cherry on top of the QT cake! We have some wonderful locals in Port Douglas' community and though we have indeed got wonderful facilities like our pools, gym and public spaces it's the people in and around our resort that sprinkle the 'magic'. Thanks for taking the time to review us...

Reviewed 19 March 2016

Pros, nice grounds, with the Mirage golf course as the backdrop. Nice pool. The bar hosts acoustic concerts and the Bazaar restaurant is a unique all you can eat high end buffet. Cons, it's a couple of kilometers to the main shopping and restaurant district, so you'll need to plan on driving to get around.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The next instalment in the QT Resorts series, QT Port Douglas, will be ready to bed on May the 12th, 2012.QT Resorts were launched by QT Port Douglas' gorgeous sister resort, QT Gold Coast, and this second coastal paradise will also include signature concepts such as the Bazaar Marketplace dining option that has quickly become the number one rated culinary experience on the Gold Coast. All guest rooms have been given a facelift with new QT beds, 42" flat screen TVs, and hand-sourced stylish fabrics and finishes. You will see in this resort the thread of designer decor that lifts QT Resorts to a new level of sophistication. The addition of 100 sun loungers by the pool can also be seen, forming the perfect vantage point from which to sip the day away. QT Port Douglas has a new open bar area, Estilo, which will be the place where you whet your lips before you dine in Bazaar, and to keep you swimwear ready, we also have begun an update on our gym and leisure offerings. From June until September, you can take in the balmy nights in front of a custom cinematic experience, Moonlight Cinema, designed especially for our guests. This sun kissed resort is a must for a lover of designer hotels and resorts. ... more   less
