Sanctuary Palm Cove, Palm Cove
Sanctuary...certainly lives up to its name!!
Sanctuary is exactly as the name implies. This is the second time we have stayed there and again, we absolutely loved it. The apartments are huge (plenty of room for two adults and 4 teenagers) and very comfortable, the setting is gorgeous and the pool is lovely. It is within very easy (<1 minute) walking distance to the beach and the shops/restaurants. The apartments have large sliding doors that open right up...we left them open most of the time as it is so lovely to enjoy the garden surrounds from the dining room table. The managers are incredibly helpful and friendly and can easily organise tours/car hire etc if required. Absolutely love this place..we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Palm Cove.

Perfect getaway
Can't speak highly enough about Sanctuary. Perfect location with amazing private gardens around and yet just a few steps from the front gate to the beach. Rooms are amazing, great airflow throughout and the fit out and layout are really comfortable. Already planning our next trip.

Lovely area. Lovely accommodation with great kitchen, washing machine and tumble drier, really comfy beds. Great pool space. Really helpful regarding things to do in the area. Definitely recommend. Only negative was that despite being there for a full week we did not get sheets and towel change mid week as described.

Perfect Paradise
This was probably one of the best apartments I have ever stayed in. The apartment was huge and beautiful. The overall property peaceful and stunning. We had a fabulous stay

A very apt truly is a sanctuary!
I had read many wonderful reviews about The Sanctuary and we were still amazed when we arrived. The property is beautiful and tranquil, set around a lagoon and in a rainforest setting. We all loved the 25 metre pool which we often had to ourselves. The apartment is amongst the best we have ever stayed in...large, modern, open to the outside (LOVED the two sets of bifold doors in the dining area), great kitchen, comfortable beds, plenty of ceiling fans, enough couches and chairs for 6 people...the list goes on. It is in a great location tucked away at the end of the main street within easy walking distance (ie about one minute) of the beach and the shops. We visited friends at another well known resort at Palm Cove and felt there was no comparison...the other resort was very busy and the central pool area overlooked by all the apartments was noisy and crowded. I cannot say enough about the Sanctuary. We absolutely loved it and will definitely return (something that we rarely do...usually preferring to explore new places). Just book it!!
