Holiday in Hamilton Island

We returned from our holiday in Hamilton Island and as I’ve been going through all the photos and gopro footages, I can’t help but to wanting to go back there again. It was very peaceful and relaxing place to be. And we were constantly surrounded by beautiful scenery everywhere. Initially when we were planning this 1-week long trip few months back, we thought of going to Bali again – for their delicious food and daily massage sessions! But at the same time, I did not want to risk having zika, dengue and rabies, especially knowing that Bali is easy to get to from Australia anyway. So instead, we decided to go to Hamilton Island to explore The Great Barrier Reef and I’m really glad that we did.

We noticed we were one of many young couples, families (with and without little kids), people from overseas and honeymooners visiting Hamilton Island. But the biggest group that stood out from everyone else were number of pregnant women on the island, and I quickly realized that this would make a very attractive babymoon destination!

 

Accommodation

Hamilton Island has number of options for accommodation. You can get as budget-friendly as you want and stay at self-serving apartment units, or you can stay classy in Qualia or other luxury villas. We decided to go to The Reef View Hotel, and chose to stay in one of their Coral Sea View Rooms.

When we got there I found out that we’ve been allocated to be on the 7th floor. I wondered if there would be a room available on the higher floors. The front desk people were very accommodating and arranged to move us the same evening, which was great.
