We had a wonderful holiday - very relaxing and enjoyable. Our accommodation at Sea Temple was really good - we had a lovely 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with a great balcony overlooking the lagoon pool. Our friends also enjoyed their apartment but would have loved a balcony like ours as they overlooked the trees etc.
The weather was overcast for the first few days - lots of heavy rain o'nite but even though the sun didn't shine it was still very warm and we loved walking along the beach and swimming in the pool and the beach. Once the sun was out we spent all day around the pool with the shade of the umbrellas and we also took advantage of the cafe and wine bar around the lagoon pool which was handy for lunch and a late afternoon wine!!!!
We went out for dinner every night (that's a holiday) and the apartment was within easy walking distance of the village and the beach.
When we arrived and unpacked we got the local bus to Clifton Beach shopping centre and got some groceries so we found that really handy also.
As usual, Exemplar transfers were terrific - always on time and very efficient. We had a mid-week linen service which was very nice to have clean sheets and towels etc.
Lastly but most importantly I want to thank you for all your help and advice in assisting me to plan this holiday for the 6 of us - we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and its was made even better by the fact that everything was organised when we arrived. We will certainly be back to Palm Cove again as we love holidaying there and I really appreciate the $100.00 voucher - I will be in touch next time we plan a break in Palm Cove. Kind regards, Chris
I would recommend booking through fnq apartments everytime.
Our experience was wonderful, faultless, couldnt have been a better holiday.
Thank you for our wonderful service and assistance. We have had a wonderful holiday.
We had a wonderful time, 6 stars all the way. From the beautiful Penthouse suite at the 5 Star Sea Temple Resort in Palm Cove, which had private access to our exclusive rooftop jacuzzi & BBQ area, which enjoyed ocean views, through to the King Size luxurious bed, and again another single spa/jet tub provided inside the Penthouse bathroom. And the price was without a doubt AMAZING only $750 for 4 glorious nights of sheer opulence, and 5 magical days of luxury. I am truly grateful to FNQ Apartments for making my birthday an experience to be revered and in truth truly memorable. I highly recommend FNQ Apartments for any and all accommodation and entertainment needs you could ever require!
Hope you're well. Just wanted to pass on some feedback on our AMAZING stay which we booked through FNQ apartments for accomodation at the Sea Temple Resort, Palm Cove. Our week stay ate resort was absolutely amazing. The swim out apartment was superb, everything we needed was available for us in the apartment & our daughter loved the fact that she could just wake up & jump straight in the pool. The penthouse was magnificent especially having our own private rooftop with BBQ area, spa & outdoor setting. Having dinner & listening to the beach in the background was so relaxing and therapeutic. We couldn't have asked for better accomodation for a much needed family holiday! A big thanks to you Brenda for regularly keeping in touch with us before & during our stay to make sure all was accomodated for us. We will definitely be returning to Palm Cove in the future, it was our own little paradise!!
We'll the Holiday was absolutely fantastic loved every minute that we were there ,start of by saying the penthouse that we had was perfect mum had morning view of the ocean that she always dreamt of having our room was perfect also loved the his and hers separate sides and loved the spa ,the resort can't fault it from the buffet breakfast to dinner everything yum yum and yum , our adventures started of with Great Barrier Reef snorkeling wow what an experience never thought I would snorkel even my mother who is 64 she also loved the experience the whole family did ,then had a day in Port Douglas the scenery the shopping everything beautiful ,then the croc farm another experience not to forget even got to try croc meat taste like chicken haha ,then came the zoo Loved the buffet breakfast even had a visitor have breakfast with us a koala loved the bird show how beautiful the eagle is and having the birds fly so close above ur head and then the pictures with the animals the koala , snake and the croc .To sum this whole holiday from get go to the very end has been experience after experience never thought I would do a lot of things and did them all .We will definitely come back next year I would not choose anywhere else to stay but at the Sea Temple ,Palm cove is so beautiful and still so close to everything ,once again thank you very much from the pick up from the airport , the late check out and to the drop off back to airport the service was excellent.
THANK YOU once again,
Susie and Family
In response to your email. a) holiday was fantastic. Palm Cove a beautiful place and Sea Temple was just lovely. Our apartment was great and well appointed. b) great service. We had a couple of little issues, like the toilet was continually running but they fixed that quicker than we could walk back to the apartment. Also great assistance with getting access for the internet. The staff were friendly and very helpful and should be commended. I would certainly recommend booking through you and staying at Sea Temple Palm Cove.
As an anti-Facebook family, I am unable to leave any comment about our most recent travel experience on your Facebook page, however, my family and I had the most fabulous time at the Sea Temple in Palm Cove and just wanted to send you all positive praise as to the wonderful service we received from Brenda at the time of booking and also a big shout out to Charlie and Jenny who were both a delight to deal with (even Bonnie the cleaner was a whiz also). Our apartment was spotlessly clean and we found it exactly as it had been explained to me prior to booking from Brenda.....with no surprises, (besides one massive stick insect) gotta love that! Palm Cove is just an idyllic part of the world we are sure as a family we will return again to. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday, we most certainly will recommend FNQ Apartments to all our friends and look forward to dealing with you all again at our next time of booking our holidays.
Kind regards from Caz, Greg and Ruby. (Melbourne, Vic).
Thank you for all your help organising our holiday to Palm Cove, as there was only a short lead time, your prompt replies and detailed knowledge were greatly appreciated, with other booking agents I've always had to chase a reply, and knowledge has been limited. Sea Temple was the perfect place for us, the apartment was beautifully appointed, and everything had been thought of, such as the welcome pack of supplies, and the beach toys for our two year old, what a wonderful surprise! The checkin and checkout process was seamless, and a very big thank you to Chris who came to our rescue late on friday night when the door jam came loose, leaving us separated from our sleeping daughter. This holiday was all about relaxation, and that was certainly what we enjoyed, we found it very difficult to come home! I would not hesitate in recommending FNQ apartments to others, and have in fact done so on a number of occassions since we returned, thanks again Julie for your wonderful service!
Kind regards, Wendy
Thanks for your email, we had a lovely trip and are only sad tha we couldn't stay longer. We were really happy with our holiday experience, we have been to FNQ before and knew what to expect. As we travelled with a 2 year old we didn't do much touring this time just a day trip up to Port Douglas for the markets and ride on the Bally Dooley and a trip into Cairns Botanical Gardens and the waterfront for the festival. We spend most of our time enjoying the Park and beach in Palm Cove. This is the first time we have booked with you and were really happy, the price of the apartment was competitive and the service was fantastic. I spoke to a few people to arrange the booking and everyone was friendly, helpful and called me back promptly to respond to any queries. Check in through the Boutique Collection was easy and the apartment was amazing.
Thanks we had a great time. The Sea Temple was great, and we loved the apartment. We went to Hartley's Crocodile Park, and that was fantastic, and we went on the scenic railway and the skyrail, which was also great.
Your service was excellent, thanks so much for everything.
Thank you FNQ for arranging Accommodation at Sea Temple, Palm Cove and Hire Car for our family trip to Cairns. Everything went smoothly, even when we arrived after midnight we were checked in at Reception and a Porter helped us with our luggage. All of the staff were friendly and helpful at all times and we enjoyed the buffet breakfast every morning at the resort. The lagoon pool and grounds were beautifully kept and our 2 bedroom penthouse was very comfortable and clean. Daily service mean’t that I didn’t have to lift a finger to do any chores which was wonderful! I enjoyed a lovely relaxing treatment at the spa and we snorkelled on the Great Barrier Reef, lucky enough to enjoy calm conditions and good visibility. A fabulous short winter break and gorgeous weather. We would very much like to revisit next year and perhaps try Sea Temple, Port Douglas for a change! I’m sure it will be just as wonderful! Only criticism – kids can get a little too noisy around the pool area. If only their parents would supervise more and take into consideration the comfort of the other guests who are trying to relax in peace.
Thank you for the follow up email below - We are locals (Mission Beach) so our stay at Palm Cove was purely for relaxation and refueling before starting another hectic year of work, work and more work. We didn't undertake any activities other than sleeping in, eating and shopping - all of which were wonderful! Our accomodation and service we received from both Boutiques Collections and the Sea Temple Resort were of very high standard and we will certainly make use of them again in the future.
All the best for 2012.
We didn't book into any activites we just wanted to go away for 3 nights and relax and that's what we did Palm Cove is so beautiful and has definitely grown in the last few years has alot of excellent restaurants and cafes. We love the Sea Temple at Palm Cove and Port Douglas our apartment was large and plenty of room and everything we needed, the staff are very friendly and nice. Thanks again Sara for all your help and organising and for the great price for the apartment. Will definitely be using you again in the future to book time away.
We stayed in a property managed by your company only. We found the service provided by FNQ Appartment and the Boutique Collection excellent. We were very happy with the property, and when talking with friends were very impressed with the competitive pricing offered. My family and I come to FNQ regularly and I will definitely be using your service again.
We had a lovely time and Sea Temple was probably the best resort in Palm Cove. It was beautiful, and clean. The friendly staff in your office were always helpfull and friendly. We wanted to stay in a nice place that was going to also be cost effective for us. The Barrier Reef has been a place that we have been wanting to travel to for some time but it has always been more expensive than taking an overseas trip. It would be a place that we would love to come again. We were very happy with using your service.
Thanking you again.
Hi Sara, We had a great trip and your company provided us with a worry free holiday in Palm Cove, staying at the Sea Temple. The accommodation was perfect and the service on arrival was fast and quick. The trip out to the Great Barrier Reef on the Reef Experience was a fun day out and the crew was fabulous. Thanks again for all your help and we will definitely recommend your company to other friends thinking of going up north.
Thanks!! Kind regards,
We couldn't be happier with the services provided by FNQ. Although I had many questions in planning our trip, all staff were prompt to answer and assist in any way possible. In fact, you went above and beyond to ensure we could cook a turkey for Christmas! The weather played havoc with our activities as the tubing trip was cancelled and the day at the reef was cut short. We were disappointed we didn't have better weather as we were looking forward to our day trips. I appreciate the quick response on refunding us. though! The accommodations at the Sea Temple in Palm Cove were amazing and the swim up unit is a must have for all. It made the vacation much more special and I highly recommend a swim up unit to all. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your company to family and friends travelling to the area. Again, thank you for all your assistance!!
I had a wonderful and relaxing time. I didn't participate in any activities as due to a stressful job l just wanted to read my book and relax. That l did. The service was fantastic. Welcoming and excellent directions for me to find where you were located and getting to Sea Temple. The request for me to change rooms was handled effectively and resolved quickly and put my mind at ease. In the end l was very happy that l got the swim up room...worth every cent.
Hi Sarah, Thanks for your great service - good price, Great apartment and speedy service. We would probably like to book the same apartment next year same time.
We loved our penthouse apartment at Sea Temple, Palm Cove. We loved it so much we are planning on coming back for our first year wedding anniversary next year! Sea Temple is a great resort for couples, very quiet, spacious, gorgeous pool & gardens. Often we felt like we were the only people there. The penthouse apartment was amazing. We loved our roof top spa, BBQ area and hearing the waves crashing while enjoying a glass of bubbly. Palm Cove is stunning, such a great spot for our honeymoon. This was our first trip to FNQ but it certainly will not be our last, a beautiful place and great people! At first I was a little worried about not booking directly via the Resort, however FNQ Apartments were great and I had nothing to worry about! Very professional service and a VERY competitive rate. My email questions were always answered very quickly which as a self-confessed control freak this made me very happy! The check in process at Boutique Collections was quick and easy. I would have no hesitation in recommending FNQ apartments to my friends and family.
Thank you very much for all your efforts we had a great stay and everything worked perfectly. Not one single hitch. The accommodation at the Sea Temple was excellent and the staff there are very friendly and helpful. We made contact with the Boutique Apartments People while we were there and again fund helpful friendly and efficient people. I have passed on your contact details to a number of friends and family for their future use and I am sure they will certainly make contact if they wish to holiday in your area. We will certainly contact you in future for our holiday requirements. Thanks for all your assistance.
We are in port Douglas at the moment and even though our place is great and peaceful we do miss our swimout apartment in palm cove! The accomodation was great, the town is beautiful and we enjoyed dining out. We had a great time, check-in was quick and easy as was checkout. Only thing I could suggest is a dining guide in the room- options and recommendations etc etc We will definately be back.
Sam and Rod
Holiday was great. Loved the Sea Temple - great pool. Barely left the resort.
Thanks for your email. We were happy with the service offered by your company. The apartment however was not fully stocked ie sugar etc upon our arrival. The mid week clean however was excellent and made up for that. As we were unlucky with the weather ie 4 days of rain, the apartment was important to us. It was difficult to feel safe (with the kids using the outside staircase) as it was exposed to the rain. I suppose this has been a design fault and difficult to rectify. We went to the movies on the rainy day and enjoyed a self drive trip to the daintree. The service at the hotel (bars and lobby) was excellent at the seatemple. Thank you for your emails and help with my enquiries. FNQ apartment's service was great.
Holiday was lovely. I am a lover of markets so we did the Sun am markets at Port Douglas, plus Kuranda and of course the Carins night markets. The nicest part of our trip was the Daintree Rivertrain in which we saw several crocs on the river banks despite the rain. This is our 4th trip to Cairns and we love the weather and atmosphere. Palm Cove remains our ideal travel destination - there are wonderful places to eat and great resorts. In particular, Sea Temple has a great chef (we enjoyed crocodile on more than one occasion), there is also a great indian restaurant and several other lovely restaurants we tried at Palm Cove with award winning chefs. I recommend Soul at Port Douglas for their jumbalaya and another restaurant on the beach front at Port Douglas (? Salt and Pepper). On the inlet also has great seafood and views at Pt Douglas. The actual resort was great - our room was a little average compared to the Angsana and the spa didn't work. It would have been great to have access to the movie channel but there was no remote for this. We did set up an account with the Sea Temple and Spa resort but were still unable to purchase movies. We spent over $600 on cocktails and food at this resort - the resort pool and staff were outstanding and we would definately stay again, only I would stay in the swim out next time (they let me look at some other rooms!!!). Your service through the Boutique Apartments was excellent - the key was with Avis and we received all instructions clearly.
Kind regards - Maree
Thanks for your email - we had such an amazing time in Palm Cove and were sad to leave!! The Sea Temple was an amazing resort, the room we stayed in was clean, bright and exceeded our expectations! We spent everyday lounging by the beautiful resort pools and enjoying the local amenities. Our parents have used the FNQ Apartment on a couple of occasions and highly recommended that we book through you! The service which was provided by FNQ from the beginning was great, all our enquiry emails were responded to in such an efficient manner. When arriving in Palm Cove, the check in procedure was straight forward and informative (although we spent a little while driving down the esplanade trying to locate you!!) and the FNQ staff member that met us was so friendly. The room was clean and the information provided in the room was very helpful. The only thing that we felt we missed out on was our "mid stay" clean - we were told we would receive one when we checked in however this did not occur??!. Apart from that, we would not hesitate to book through FNQ again, and have already recommended you to our friends and family. Thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable, we really cannot believed what value for money we received and would love to make Palm Cove & The Sea Temple our annual holiday destination!!
Hannah & Ian
You beat me to it! I was in the process of emailing you. We had a wonderful time and were extremely pleased with the accommodation. The apartment was spacious, clean and provided everything we required. We had a midweek service and I called the Palm Cove office to let them know how happy I was with the way it had been cleaned. We will definately be booking through you again as we plan on holidaying in Port Douglas and Palm Cove next September. I have already given your details to a couple friends who are coming up in October. Thank you Megan and to other members of your team who helped make our holiday a wonderful family experience.
Hi Sara, We loved our stay in Palm Cove. The Sea temple lived up to our expectations. We felt like we were in Bali without being in Bali. Loved the spacious room. As we were there to relax we did not do much activity wise, we enjoyed relaxing by the pool and simply walking on the beach. I made regular use of the gym as well which has very adequate up to date equipment. Overall we were very satisfied with the whole experience. Thanks for the voucher. Kind Regards, Sandy.
We had a wonderful holiday. Everything was just lovely, the resort, the room, the service - all of it. We will definitely be back to Palm Cove, it is the most relaxing and beautiful town.
We've recently returned from a lovely trip to Palm Cove and would highly recommend FNQ booking service for their professionalism, courtesy and helpfulness, plus unbeatable room rates. After much searching on the internet, I found that the FNQ website offered room rates at Palm Cove hotels that beat the cheapest offers on Wotif by a good 10-30%. We booked for 5 nights at Sea Temple and took advantage of a low room rate plus a bonus night free which was a fantastic offer. We also called FNQ staff to organise a reef tour and were offered sound advice and suggestions on which tour would suit us. We went with Sailaway IV (booked via FNQ) and had a great day. I'd certainly contact the friendly staff at FNQ booking service again for future holidays to the area.
Michelle and Darren
Welcome home indeed - Sydney feels sooo cold after FNQ! Palm Cove was very restful, and we can definitely recommend the limo transfer on arrival at Cairns! We were extremely happy with the service we got from FNQ Apartments, and moreover the cost was a fair discount from what it would have been going through the accommodation directly or even through some of the discount 'last minute' websites. We already have recommended you to several of our friends - and my wife is already planning to repeat out trip next year! And yes, we're happy for you to use these comments on your website - best wishes for your continued success.
Thanks for your email and I am very happy to recommend the services of FNQ Apartments. We had a fantastic holiday and the accommodation at Sea Temple Palm Cove was excellent and represented great value. It is a beautiful destination. I was very impressed with the continuous service provided by FNQ to us while we were in Palm Cove in arranging promptly extra tours and managing a late cancellation of transfers. It was a completely relaxing stay at Sea Temple and very enjoyable eating our way up the main esplanade. Great weather, great food and accommodation and great service! I would be very happy to use your services again.
Everything worked out great with your arrangements. the transfers were on time and we met Terry our driver a total of 5 times in our holiday!!!! The room at the Sea Temple was just great lots of space and Boutique collection were very friendly and helpful especially when Rob locked us out of the room. The staff at Sea Temple were also very approachable. Loved the pool at the Sea Temple and the Spa bath in the bathroom. Yes I would use your organisation again, in fact I have already checked out your apartments in Port Douglas as we loved our week there. We will be back. Your website is well laid out with lots of details and your reply to e mails was exceedingly prompt.
Oh wow! We had a simply fantastic time in FNQ. We had been to Cairns before (7 years ago) and were so happy to be back. The weather was superb, sunny days and warm nights with many days spent by the pool or lazing on the beach. We stayed at the amazing Sea Temple in Palm Cove and were delighted with everything on offer there. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We took a tour out to the Reef and were dazzled with what we saw and experienced. My husband, the kids and I couldn't believe what was hidden beneath the waves, so many fish, so much coral, we are still raving about the experience a week later. We explored Port Douglas on the Sunday and visited the market and enjoyed fresh sugar cane juice, drank from coconuts, bought shells, jewellery and some animals handmade from palm leaves which are just delightful. We enjoyed everything about Cairns, the great shopping at DFO, the magnificent lagoon pool in the centre of town and ate from the restaurants along the Esplanade. We hired a car from Avis in Palm cove for 4 days and received a good deal which saw us "picking it up" from the Sea Temple and cruising around in a Ford XR6 when we were only expecting to get an ordinary run of the mill sedan. We were well and truly living in splendor thanks to your excellent customer service and efficient and professional service at FNQ Apartments. Our rooftop apartment had us enjoying our private spa and enjoying BBQs most days and nights. It was maintained to a high standard and we enjoyed everything about staying at the Sea Temple. You gave us such a well priced and enjoyable stay that we will be talking about this holiday long into the future. We wanted 5 star and we definitely got it!
Thank you so much.
Jo, Wayne, Ben and Tessa.
We had a really great holiday, thank you! We loved The Sea Temple - the location, the facilities and Palm Cove were fabulous, and we are highly recommending you to all our friends! We went out on the Reef one day on the "Quicksilver" which was also excellent. Altogether great holiday, no complaints!!
See you next time,
Hi there Megan,
Thanks for your email – it is so hard to get back to work after having such a fabulous time away at Palm Cove – but I’ll try!! I sourced our accommodation after scouring the internet and seeing so much positive feedback about FNQ accommodation – decided to contact your company to find out more. I’m so happy that I did – we have just come back from 5 fantastic days at Sea Temple Palm Cove and can’t wait to re-book for next year. So, I hope I will now be able to add my name (and feedback) to your list of fans worldwide! I found that the expertise and service that I received from FNQ Accommodation was outstanding. As I was organizing a holiday for 2 families there were quite a lot of questions, which were all efficiently and expertly answered – you guys really know your product. The arrival was easy – Boutique Collections were ready for us and we were in our rooms before we knew it… On the rooms, our stunning 3 bedroom penthouse, beautifully decorated and presented, and just a fantastic home away from home for our family. We loved the upstairs too – used the big outdoor spa and the barbecue area a lot. The Sea Temple Resort was divine, so tranquil and the majority of the staff were unreal (although the evening restaurant staff really need some training). We set up a room account on the first day and this really made things very easy around the property as far as charging drinks and food etc. So another FNQ success story – thank you so much! Actually, would you mind checking the dates for me for Easter next year? We definitely want to go back.
I just wanted to write to say thank you, we had such a lovely break at the sea temple palm cove and we were very impressed by your company's service. It is obviously a well thought out system and it worked perfectly for us. Keep up the great work, my husband and I will definately be utilising the your services in the not to distant future.
Thanks again Sincerely,
Louise and Andrew
Hi There Sara,
After reading many reviews of the sea temple and unfortunately people do make negative comments but I must say that the quality of the accomodation we had and the pricing was well above the expectation that I envisaged. The penthouse we had was well desinged and set out and perfect for us. Also reception were friendly. As my partner is expecting in 4 months time it was just perfect for a get away for us before the baby arrives. Unfortunately we did not use the roof top spa as apparently pregnant women cannot use spas. I thought it would of been agood suprise for her as she thought that I only booked a studio apartment. Next time I think we would go the swim up studio for something different. Our intention for our holiday was not to do much but just relax, but saying that we did have a hire car for our duration and did daily drives to Hartleys croc farm, port douglas and Kuranda Market. We did go the the local greek restaurant one evening and I do recommend it very highly the food was great and the atmosphere was also. Thanks to FNQ for allowing us to rent the accomoadation and it was very easy.
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. We had a fantastic holiday thankyou. We were very happy with the service that was provided. The resort and room were perfect. Sara was very helpful in the lead up to our holiday in making sure that all our needs were covered. I would not hesitate to contact FNQ Apartments in the future when planning our next holiday, we will be visiting Palm Cove and the Sea Temple Palm Cove again. It was the ultimate getaway and relaxing holiday.
Thanks for your email, We had a absolutely fabulous time in our 2 Bed Swim Up at Sea Temple Palm Cove it was amazing, would gladly go there again and stay in the same apartment it was just fantastic. We went out to The Reef but unfortunately the only day we were there that rained the entire day was the day we picked to go to The Reef so that was a bit of a downer but was still great to see The Reef. The standards and your satisfaction with our services Were above expectations, should I say over and above, the standards were extremly high and our satisfaction was way above and Boutique Collection's services were exceptional, so thank you. You made our holiday a holiday to always remember, we thank you dearly from the bottom of our hearts.
We really enjoyed our holiday and the apartment at the Sea Temple Palm Cove was superb. I can not think of any single issue that marred the whole experience.We will certainly be booking again.You could forward me the rates for next Dec at Sea Temple Palm Cove as we may get in early.
Sea Temple was fantastic! We really enjoyed the facilities there, the staff were friendly, the food delicious and the pool relaxing. We were extremely happy with the room and the service we received from FNQ Apartments before and during our stay.
Sorry its taken so long to write and tell you what a wonderful and relaxing time we had away at the The Sea Temple. It was so nice to enjoy the fantastic weather and facilities the hotel had to offer. We were very please with the prompt and friendly customer service provided and will be very happy to use your services again and recommend you to family and friends.
Sonia and Rob
Just a note to say thanks for organising my stay at Sea Temple – it was most relaxing! Thanks again for your great customer service at short notice. I have already recommended FNQ apartments to friends!
Thanks for the welcome home I had a fantastic time didn't do any tours as such as I spent the time with my friends who got married there on the beach. I would love to return, the accommodation was excellent perfect room number 325 if I came back I would love to stay in the same room again. The Seatemple was beautiful we discussed coming back annually for my friends anniversary! I will defiantly recommend FNQ Apartments to all my friends here in the West and do intend on returning. Your service was very friendly and professional. I intend to be doing business with you again in the near future. Kind regards,
Thank you for your email. We had a fantastic time in the Sea Temple Palm Cove and I would definitely recommend your service. All we did was lounge around by the pool and spend quality time asa family. The swim up apartments at the Sea Temple Palm Cove are definitely my favourite as there is minimal effort required to keep the kids happy and at the end of the day we all have a great time relaxing. I have kept your card and if we holiday in north qld any time soon I will be in touch.
Sea Temple Palm Cove Thank you FNQ Apartments for the cheapest 5-star holiday experience in Australia. Nothing is too much trouble. Well organised - we were made very welcome, taken to our accommodation and made to feel at home. A work colleague recommended FNQ Apartments to me - now I'll be recommending FNQ Apartments to my friends. Stress free holiday at a great price!
Thanks for your email and I had a great holiday. Both the Sea Temple Palm Cove Resort and the room were very nice and everything I had hoped for. I really enjoyed Palm Cove and definitely plan to come back some time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Palm Cove as a destination for others and would also be happy to recommend that they organise their accommodation through FNQ Apartments.
We loved Palm Cove!! It is a beautiful little town where everything is within walking distance. Given the inclement weather we also visited Cairns and Port Douglas, however most of our time was spent frequenting the local restaurants, cafes and galleries. A day spa at Reef House, was definitely one of our highlights. Our room at Sea Temple Resort booked through FNQ, was lovely. Well appointed, clean and tidy. The transit service to and from Sea Temple made our stay very convenient. Thanks for all of your assistance in arranging our stay at the Sea Temple Resort whilst in Palm Cove.
Katie and Warren
Yes, it's ok to use my comments: a) My impressions: Palm Cove was beautiful and extremely relaxing, the locals very warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend friends and family to visit. b) The service we received from FNQ Apartment was A+. The accommodation at the Sea Temple Palm Cove and transfer from the airport to Palm Cove was all arranged perfectly and we didn't have a worry in the world. I wouldn't think of trying to book accommodation any other way and would definitely recommend the service to everyone I know that is thinking of travelling to FNQ. I am storing the contact information for future reference. Thank you so very much for your brilliant service.
Good morning Sara.
Many thanks for your email. It's not much fun being back in Melbourne after the wonderful warm weather we experienced in Palm Cove. We were thrilled with our apartment and the outlook over the rainforest. It was very comfortable and well equipped for our needs. Our son's wedding was fabulous despite the short rain storm during the ceremony. We enjoyed a trip to Green Island for some snorkelling, and shopped and lunched in Port Douglas. Palm Cove however had all we needed with a wonderful range of coffee shopping and dining venues. Your staff were so helpful and we have determined that another trip at some time is on our wish list.
Once again thankyou for all you assistance,
My husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary whilst staying in Palm Cove. We absolutely loved the Sea Temple. The swim out apartment was sensational. First class all the way. We definitely felt like king and queen whilst our stay. As we are regular travelers to Cairns, we totally chilled out. We have seen all of the beautiful sceneries of North Queensland on our previous trips. The only visit I managed was a fantastic one hour massage at the Sea Temples Spa Centre. I left leaving totally revived and feeling all brand new again. We wined and dined in some great restaurants in Palm Cove and Cairns. We will definitely be in touch with you soon as we are looking at coming back up there in September with the children. Hopefully we can get apartment 105 again. What an amazing experience!! Thank you also for your reminder e-mail before we left. Dennis and I were extremely happy with your services and great communication whilst arranging our holiday.
Thanks for your email. We had a brilliant time. The weather was great, the unit was terrific and it was just the getaway that we needed! I'm heading overseas next week but will certainly be looking to holiday in palm cove again maybe next year when I can return from OS. I'm happy to provide the following comments for your web site.... a) your impressions of your holiday and the activities that you participated in. Palm cove is my favourite holiday destination in the country. Sea Temple is an absolutely amazing getaway. We enjoyed a day spa, leisurely sleep ins, lounging by the pool, walks along the beach and dining along Williams esplanade. We were also close enough to Port Douglas for a day trip to the markets and mossman gorge for a swim! 10 out of 10 for a totally relaxing holiday destination and experience! I can't wait to come back..... b) the standards and your satisfaction with our services FNQ apartments were fantatic! We had an amazing unit and everything was organised as promised! The service provided by FNQ apartments was excellent and the rates were terrific! Ill be using them again for my next trip to FNQ!
Thanks Sara and team!
Sorry about the delay in replying to this email but I'm just back in the office. The holiday was absolutely wonderful and I appreciated all your effort in organising it and making our trip absolutely perfect. The accommodation was brilliant and we were more than pleased with your very professional service. We were after a more laid back holiday and I appreciated that I was able to call you and organise a car etc. promptly without any hassle. Yes, please go ahead and use my feedback. Thanks again for all your help and the attached voucher.
The place was fantastic we went for a swim up apartment instead of studio. I was very uncertain when reading comments about the Sea Temple on the internet. But when we arrived I was shocked on how nice it was. The apartment was equipped with everything you could need but yet it still had the look of a resort. The swim up apartment is definitely worth the extra money, the staff was so friendly especially Alex at the pool bar he was just so helpful nothing was ever too much trouble. Booking through FNQ saved us so much money. All was done before we arrived which meant no checking in and filling out forms. On the last day my partner got sick and was advised not to fly so we had to stay an extra night I just want to say a big thank you to Rebecca she really looked after us. I’ve already recommended FNQ to all my friends at work and will defiantly be back very soon ourselves.
Good to hear from you. We had a great holiday, the room was even better than the pictures that we had seen, the resort and the facilities plus all the staff were great, it was a great process from the first time i e-mailed you until the end of the holiday. We went to the lion safari park, Hartleys crocodile farm, the skyrail, and then we just went into Cairns for a look on the last day. Hopefully you will hear from me in the near future as my new wife and i both loved it and want to come back at our next holiday.
Thanks for all your help,
What a surprise! A most unexpected, but welcome email from you.This holiday was all about total R & R for both my senior mum and myself. So essentially, short of moving to sleep, eat and soak up the sunshine, we fulfilled our intention to perfection! On arrival we were very warmly greeted at Boutique Apartments in Plam Cove and driven to Sea Temple. All details of the booking and resort were thoroughly explained to us on arrival at the apartment by your representitive. Resort was absolutely wonderful! We did feel the soft furnishings in 104 are perhaps in need of a re furb. Floor mats and cushions on lounges just passing the standard of the apartment and resort itself. This would be our only "negative " really...so nothing to major at all!! We would have no hesitation in using your service again, or recommending (already have) your business to family, friends and colleagues. Many thanks for the follow up..what a refreshing gesture in today's "crazy" world we live in. Christmas Cheers to all at FNQ,
dear sarah had a great time in palm cove and port douglas both the room at the sea temple at palm cove and the cayman villas at port douglas were excellent exactly as shown on you website. your service etc was also excellent thank you sue
We had a great time at the Sea Temple, and really loved Palm Cove. Sea Temple was everything we hoped it would be, and the 2 bedroom apartments were really big and offered plenty of room for all of us to have our own space. Your ground operator was fantastic, and we ended up booking a hire car through them as they were very helpful and friendly. The whole booking process was so easy, and your staff very helpful in giving us all sorts of assistance including recommending a babysitting service (which we used and our kids loved!). Thankyou for the $100.00 voucher. Even before we got this we had already decided to return next year, but next time it will be a toss up between the Sea Temple or Beach Club. We will be in touch!
Once again many thanks,
Thanks very much for your email. We have a lovely break away. I am more than happy to provide you with some feedback and of course you can use it wherever you like! Palm Cove itself was great. I thought the restaurants were very pricy but I did expect that. Two restaurants in particular were great - Reef House and Spice Market. I know they have both won awards. Other places to eat were quite average in terms of the food and service but we do live in Melbourne where the food is usually of a very high standard for its price. Service was also quite slow. As we were only there for 4 full days we did not venture out of Palm Cove. We went for walks along the beach and used the resort facilities most of the time. the resort was great and the swim out apartment was fantastic! The apartment was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. the only thing we thought would have been good was if we had been provided with towels for swimming/the beach. Other guests (I presume from the Mirvac apartments) had beige beach towels, whereas we needed to use our bathroom towels. We had an issue with our breakfast vouchers as they were the old vouvhers and each day we had to explain to the staff that their supervisor new all about it, which was a bit of a pain. I did think the breakfast buffet in the resort was average also. I hope this information helps you. We had a fantastic time and everyone was very friendly and helpful, including the Boutique Collections staff. We will definitely be staying again.
Holiday was great, the fact that we were able to save a considerable amount on accom by booking via FNQ, allowed us to enjoy activities that we probably wouldn't have considered otherwise. Was more than happy with both the PortSea and Sea Temple in Pam Cove. The checking in procedure at the Sea Temple as well as the fact we couldn't book anything to our room was a little inconvenient - and at times made us feel a little 'external' - however given the savings we would stay there again. Will be recommending FNQ to others.
Hi thank you for all your prompt help that was great.
The location and Palm Cove itself was lovely The room was very good although I had one major problem was No Broadband was connected in the apartment this was a major problem and we nearly changed rooms. It was very dangerous for me as a Stockbrker to not have hourly access in case of any emergencies luckily there were no stockmarket crisis during those 3 days . I would not be able to risk staying in that apartment again. I reef tour was great BUT the coach transfers were Apauling nearly everyone felt so sick by the speed the driver took the winding road north , it totally spoilt our 11 year olds day and none of us were prepared to get back into the bus to return so I had to hire a car for the return trip ( what a waste ). You should warn anybody before ever using the tour busses up there or they will blame you for not informing them. Thank you for you help but please warn people of the pitfalls.
We had a good break at Palm Cove. We have been to Palm Cove many times over the years when our children were young. The Sea Temple accommodation was very nice and well located with easy access to the beach. The lighting on the walk and flames give a good atmosphere. The room is well set out and equipped with the only suggestion being a chair inside would be nice. The check in arrangement worked well as we were met out the front and escorted into our room. We walk up an down Palm cove several times looking at all the changes and shopping. Pizza at Il Forno was as good as ever and the Cafe De Lema food was excellent. Deli at Sea Temple end of Palm Cove was also very good. Watching the Cowboys win at the Hotel was fantastic but pity they couldn't back up. Trip into Cairns with breakfast on the Esplanade with great view across the lagoon and picnic in park near the skateboard bowl. Esplanade redevelopment looks great. Shopping at Myers and a quick visit to the Casino. We then had a couple of days on the Tableland which is always a great place to visit. Arrived home refreshed and unfortunately had to return to work this week.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very impressed with the apartment - private and quiet. A real selling point in not facing the pool as it turns out (noisy kids). We did a day on the Michelmaey Cay trip with Ocean Sprit - excellent day, enhanced by the perfect weather. Rest of the time was pure R&R. Enjoyed the restaraunts we ate at etc. A suggestion if I may - to offer a 'welcome package' for those who fly in of say $50+ worth of essential groceries - some of the apartments on Hamilton Island offer this service. Also was confused re the servicing of the apartment - was expecting one service whilst we were there. All in all, excellent holiday.
Will be back for a next time,
Winsome and myself were very happy with everything, it was fantastic. We appreciated the tour we received when arriving and the rundown on the facilities. We didn't really participate in any tours or planned activities, as we had a wedding to attend on Saturday, and we much prefer to poke around and discover things ourselves. In regard to the standard of satisfaction with your services, we were extremely satisfied. Friendly service and a great price, can't ask for more than that! The only things I could recommend is explaining if Internet is available in the room, or if we can pay the Sea Temple for Internet access to our room. Or possibly explaining where in Palm Cove there is Internet access. I know you go on holidays to escape all that, but especially for people our age, it's almost a necessity just for communication. The only other thing that would have been nice is a bit of an insiders or locals guide to the restaurants of the area (I did look through the package we were given when we arrived...though I didn't see anything like this. Please correct me if there was already something like this in there). Maybe broken up by meal, eg. a few places listed for Breakfast, with some of the dishes available with a few ideas of prices to expect at each, etc. Because so many of the restaurants are quite expensive, it's nice to find a few little places that have a cheap breakfast, or a quick and easy pizza or something for lunch. I have already recommended the website to so many friends and co-workers and a few people at work are driving up to Palm Cove soon. Expect plenty of referrals from us.
Thanks for reminding me. Yes we had an absolutely lovely time. We'll be back.. and probably in the same appartment as we really couldn't fault it. We didn't really do very much, just relaxed. Walked up and down the strip. Had a massage each at the Sebel (OK) and a great dinner also at the Sebel on the Saturday night. And that's about it. Worth pointing out that pretty much as soon as we got there we were planning the next trip, but will probably take our 2.5 year old next time and get out and explore a bit more up the coast. So in all very happy with the accomodation and your arrangements. Again thanks so much for all your help. Look forward to next time.
Just wanted to let you know Sea Temple was everything you said. We had a fantastic time. Pam and Alex were great. We were pleasantly surprised when they upgraded us to the penthouse for 6 of our 7 nights. It was fabulous. We had our own roof top spa and view across to the ocean. Steve and I would like to thank you for all your help in making our 20th. wedding anniversary so special. We will certainly reccommend our friends to deal through you when they are in your part of the world. Many thanks Troy.

Our first impressions of the Sea Temple Resort was absolutely breathtaking! As we existed the taxi, we were immediately greeted by Rebecca, who then proceeded to give us a guided tour of the complex, and finally our superb apartment. Unfortunately, our business commitments in FNQ meant that our check-in was delayed for a day, but without mention, Rebecca had expressed to us that she would find out if she could extend our stay for a day. True to her word, she had called us that very afternoon to let us know that we could stay on for an extra day! Needless to say, my fiancée and I were absolutely thrilled! As we were only there for a couple of days, we spent most of our time swimming & soaking up the sun around the lagoon pool. We spent the mornings & evenings strolling along the beach. Even though we were only there for a few days, we both felt extremely relaxed by the time we had to leave. We both agreed that the standards and services of FNQ Apartments was absolutely fantastic. So much so, that we are already planning our next FNQ holiday, and will definitely be utilising the professional services of FNQ Apartments. We would also like to extend a special thanks to Rebecca, who made our stay at the Sea Temple Resort an absolute pleasure. Thanks for a great holiday. See you again.......soon.
By the way, thanks very much for the Discount Voucher.
Will be needing it soon!

Many thanks for your help with organising our honeymoon. The accommodation (Sea Temple) was exceptional and we had a great time snorkeling the reef on Poseidon and white water rafting with Raging Thunder. Everything we did we thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. Even dinner at the Palm Cove tavern.
How are you going?! Sorry for the late reply....I must still be in holiday mode! Palm Cove was fantastic and the resort was amazing!!! We did go on the sky rail...just beautiful. Also made a trip to Mossman Gorge, lovely. Very glad we hired the car to buzz around in...made sight seeing heaps easier...especially with the bub. Thanks so much for your very friendly help...and fantastic deal! We will definitely be contacting you for our next holiday. No worries to put comment on the web site. Hope to chat soon!
Back to normality again, unfortunately. We had a wonderful time at the Sea Temple - the wedding was just beautiful and the weather behaved on the day, which was also Mother's day, and we had sunshine all day. Thank you for organising all the accommodation for me, everyone was more than satisfied with their rooms and our three bedroom apartment was just great. We were refunded for the roll-out bed also, thanks for following that up. Our overseas visitors were very impressed with the Amphora also. Thank you again for all you did, it is much appreciated, and I hope one day my husband and I can come for a relaxing holiday without having to organise other people. We will definitely book through you when we do!
