We are a family of four with young kids. The Sea Temple was perfect for us, but it all depends on what your personal needs, likes/dislikes etc are. It's located a few kilometres out of the main part of Port Douglas. We used the local on-demand shuttle bus which was efficient and you can buy a weekly pass to use it as many times as you like. We loved the resort's location as it was away from the crowds and noise which suited us. Obviously other people may prefer to be located in the town centre close to the action, restaurants, pubs. The resort itself is well designed and stylish and exudes relaxation. The lagoon pool is HUGE and beautiful. It has a deep main section and lots of quieter shallow areas that wind their way around the resort under little bridges and are fantastic fun for kids. I loved that the kids could easily touch the bottom so I could sit on the side and relax with a drink when I felt like it. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, well maintained with tasteful decor. It was located away from the busy restaurant/pool area. The swim-out apartments looked really convenient but they do get a lot of passing traffic from everyone swimming by which could be annoying if you're after peace and quiet. I overheard a lady telling a group of kids to move away from her verandah. Buffet breakfast was good enough but not spectacular (compared to overseas hotels I've stayed in). I think eating out in Australia can be expensive everywhere- easily $100+ for dinner- so we tended to order share plates rather than main meals. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked lots of day trips through the concierge and they were professional and organised. Would definitely stay at the Sea Temple again.
The Pullman is a great place to stay at Port Douglas. Being self contained gives you the choice of where to dine. Great for the family and the roof top spa and BBQ area (your own personal area) is a nice touch.
Nous avons eu un sejour tres agreeable.Les enfants se sont vraiment bien amuses.
The kitchen was a bit short of crockery, cutlery etc - otherwise fantastic
The place was great, we loved the fact also that we had access to the beach and went down everyday. The pool was amazing, the room was very very nice and also clean, the only small negative we could say was to do with the few time we ordered room service, they forgot things on the order each time but I have to say it was taken care of straight away as soon as we rang them other then that small thing everything was perfect and we would certainly stay there again.
We loved the Sea Temple resort: the pool was fantastic for the kids and the room very spacious. Also very easy beach access and only a short drive to town.
Skip the on-site restaurant it's very average and the dining options in town are excellent.
This is the first holiday at Sea Temple Resort at Port Douglas and no doubt we will be back. All of the staff are friendly and polite. The Resort facilities are excellent as is the swim out room that we booked. The dining and room service was tops. This Resort easily gets a rating of 11/10 from us.
The best lagoon ever, with excellent service and rooms. Will return.
Great stay. Really friendly and helpful staff. Pool is amazing. Everything was outstanding, however there were two things that we would like to feed back for consideration: 1) Pool towels in our room were only changed/replaced when we specifically asked, even though we left used ones on floor of bathroom. 2) The music playing from the bar near the pool was really loud and wasn't good music for people who are on a holiday and trying to relax. We are 27 years old and found it too loud like party music - our parents wouldn't last by the pool listening to that for more than 10 minutes. Other than this, a fantastic hotel!
Gorgeous hotel, lagoon pool to die for right at ur door, very clean, great service, great restaurant looking over the pool although the food options are limited and fairly average, could do with a menu review and better chef, food is just 'nice'. Cheap coffee in room but great tea. Really lovely staff, professional, friendly service. Overall a good four star stay! Really loved it will definitely return!
Enjoyed the Sea Temple, the staff were very friendly and the location was good, the giant resort pool was great and it was not to cold. The coffee was good as was the food. It is close to 4 Mile Beach but not the nicest part of that very long beach.
Port Douglas was nice as always.
I would have appreciated an 'add on' option in the form of a kitchen pack. We had a self contained apartment so we could cook yet we had useless knives, 1 tiny chopping board, no condiments etc we were constantly having to buy bits n pieces. If u offered some options like a 'kitchen pack' with the basics of salt + pepper, olive oil, a mustard/sauce and some decent utensils, it could be a good business decision. A number of families we know have stayed and experienced the same frustrations. Not all families want to eat out each day.
the Pullman at Port Douglas is lovely, staff are very polite and very well trained in hospitality. Rooms are lovely, pool is great. Food, in particular breakfast a bit of a let down comparatively speaking to the rest of the resort
We have stayed in many hotels both in Australia and overseas and I can say without exaggeration that the Pullman was our best experience ever. The staff are World-class and this made our experience even better. That said, all our experiences with staff in all areas of Port Douglas was amazingly good.
Sea Temple is a top quality resort with an amazing lagoon pool, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The swimming pool is the most amazing feature of the resort. The gardens and decore also stunning. Beds very comfortable and penthouse unit very spacious and clean. Enjoyed the buffet breakfasts and friendly and helpful staff.
We had the most amazing week in port douglas helped by the Beautiful scenery, the amazing weather, and the staff at Pullman sea temple were fabulous. They have thought of everything, from helping us with booking our tours to hiring a car it was fantastic. The room was great, it was so big just for the two of us and is definately somewhere we will return to and suggest for family vacations.
The Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort & Spa was amazing. It's a very luxurious resort and I'm very happy that I had the opportunity to stay there. The pool was great and all the staff were very welcoming. I highly recommend getting breakfast included in your stay. The morning buffet breakfast was definitely a highlight. Overall it was an amazing stay and I hope to go there again soon!
What a great place to stay. I went here here with my wife and kids to stay at a resort and that's exactly what we got - a great resort with a magnificent pool!
First time in Port Douglas was amazing. As travellers
from the cooler southern states the weather was great. Sea Temple Resort is beautiful and the staff are very nice and accomadiating.We will certainly return.
Pullmans is fabulous resort. We literally barely left the resort in the 6 days we were there. We had the penthouse apartment & it was one of thr best places we had stayed with the roof top bbq terrace & spa to ourselves! However, we have a 2yr old daughter with us & found the resort was not that well equipt for a toddler-nor is Port Douglas in general. Otherwise would be perfect for a couples getaway.
Great resort for kids, great buffet breakfast, fantastic pool
We had a great time everything was perfect, room, friendly staff, weather.
Such a beautiful place, food at the restaurant was very nice
With so many apartments we hardly saw any other quests, except around the pool! so quiet & peaceful a great relaxing holiday. It was hard going back to Melbourne.
We were very happy with our stay. The kids loved the buffet breakfasts the pool which they swam in morning to night. Nice walk to the beach out through the back gate of the resort. We had a spa deck upstairs which was great for the evenings whilst hubby was cooking the BBQ. We would stay there again and can not wait to.
The hotel itself was beyond expectations, the swim out apartments were beautiful, and the room was beautifully kept. I recommend for families as everyday we had other peoples kids on our swimout platform using our beds and running up and down which was a little annoying when as a couple we were trying to have a quiet evening together. The only downside was the front desk staff, there was one woman and one man who were beyond helpful and the rest seemed unconcerned and unhelpful. Numerous occasions we asked for help to do with tours and shuttles and all of the staff bar the manager on duty were dismissive and rude. The only downside of an otherwise pleasant stay.
We had the best accommodation ever. Most of our meals we had at the restaurant. It was our wedding anniversary and the staff in the restaurant made us a wonderful desert, the food was FANTASTIC and the staff were all FABULOUS. Beautiful Stay. Thanks to all your staff.
My Wife and two kids thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pullman. It was the best and kid friendly place that we have every stayed anywhere in Oz. The most amazing part for my children was the awesome pool at the Hotel. It is just amazing and we truly appreciate the comfort and friendly welcome from the start at the Front Desk and from when we left. So it is an amazing spot closer to the beach where we spent hours walking. I will recommend the place to any of my friends and colleagues, We will certainly come back and stay when we do get the chance. Thank You Kindly for Hospitality from The Pattersons - Cairns!
very impressed the service was excellent , the staff very friendly and helpful nothing was a problem for them we were caught up in cyclone Ita we were kept informed and evacuated when needed resort itself kept very clean and tidy and would recommend to family and friends we will be going back
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the resort. The rooms were spacious, clean and great views of the pool and resort. Very pleasant and welcoming staff and would recommend this resort to both couples and families.
This is the second time we have stayed at The Pullman Sea Temple in Port Douglas, the staff are wonderful, really helpful and friendly. We had booked a studio spa suite, upon arrival we were automatically upgraded to a Penthouse Suite, fabulous!
We had an amazing stay in a beautiful villa with lovely surroundings and facilities. I would highly recommend it.
Would recommend the Pullman again. Would like to thank all staff and especially Laura on front desk for making our stay fantastic. Could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
We had a very relaxing holiday and would highly recommend the Sea Temple. The resort had everything that you could wish for a lovely room, a beautiful pool area, close to the beach, fine dining and a relaxing day spa.
Very good service, friendly & helpful staff
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at the Sea Temple Port Douglas. We would highly recommend this hotel.
Overall beautiful resort, service outstanding, but for a five star property I was surprised that a lampshade was dirty and torn, and dining table scratched, the mattresses and pillows below standard, they should use the pillowtop mattresses. The lunches and dinners were fine dining standard but the buffet breakfast not up to scratch, not much choice, more 3-4 star quality!
It was worth paying extra for the plung pool really great.
It was such a beautiful place and have reccomended to many of our friends
definetly want to come back
The only concern was the price of drinks and breakfast
Would recommend it to anyone great place and time we had
