Palm Cove - Angsana Resort and Spa

There are many styles of holiday accommodation at Palm Cove ranging from caravan parks to 5 star resorts.

We chose the Angsana Resort and Spa - an oldie but a goodie

snaffle up an ocean view room if you can

These come in one - three bedroom configurations. Insanely spacious and comfortably decorated.

Our room overlooked the beach pool and the spa centre where we enjoyed extraordinarily relaxing Javanese
and Hawaiian massages. For an indulgent experience book a double treatment with your partner and receive a foot bath, tamarind tea and outdoor shower as well.

The big plus with the Angsana is that it is the only resort located right on the beach.

And if you're worried about crocs and stingers there are plenty of pools to lounge by

You can call up room service or breakfast at the resort's beachfront Far Horizons restaurant.

Mark couldn't go past the Far Horizons Big Breakfast which was beautifully cooked.

.. and explore the coastline a little. Another development called The Village is going up on the other side of the creek. I wonder how it will change Palm Cove and impact on the local environment.

Hello! Palm Cove is a popular wedding destination - especially for Koreans.

and the most magical setting for a reception

all catered for by the Far Horizon's staff

Our dinner that night at the Far Horizons was a little more low key but no less magical...
Blue swimmer crab ravioli, and a tasting plate of dumplings, and lamb cutlets. No pushing boundaries here. Just fresh uncomplicated dishes.
