We booked two apartments over the long weekend. The apartments are lovely, view spectacular and facilities good. Management are very friendly. This resort is right on the beachfront, I would recommend the penthouse apartment.

I have stayed at Rose Bay Resort several times over the past couple of years and in fact, it would be the only place I would stay in Bowen. Each of the rooms at the resort has it's own ocean view, regardless if you are on the first floor or the third floor. The rooms are clean and tidy and... More

I stayed at rose bay resort in September 2015 as I revived a hot tip from family. This was one of the only times I have agreed with family, this place was amazing. The resort almost had a private beach only shared by a residential house and a couple of appartments. The room I was in was on the first... More

From the quiet beachfront location, spacious rooms and incredible views, this place really cemented our lovely but too short stsy in Bowen as being highly memorable. Would recommend requesting a ground level room for those with little kids. Make sure to do the Mount Edgecombe walk to Horseshoe Bay if fitness levels are okay.

Fantastic secluded location. Lovely clean and tidy accommodation. Small pool but not really needed as wonderful beach outside. Management could have been more pro-active but rarely seen and reception invariably unmanned.

We recently stayed here for two nights. Booking made online through a web site Having visited Bowen previously but never staying overnight, we were unsure of where best to stay. We were more than happy with our choice of the Rose Bay Resort. Location is fantastic and very secluded. The walking trails adjacent to the resort are amazing with spectacular... More

We had a lovely stay with Rose Bay Resort. The room was clean & comfortable, balcony had a great view of the beach. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Short drive to restaurants, cafe's & more beaches. Plenty of bush walks close by with beautiful views.
