Bedarra Island Accommodation

Accommodation on Bedarra Island is, on the whole, decidedly high-end and includes seven privately owned villas and an eight-villa resort. Of these villas, four are located right on the beach – East Bedarra Island Retreat, Bedarra Beach Villa and two Bedarra Resort villas – the Beach House and The Point. The private luxury villas can all be booked through Romantic Retreats, Australia.

To save you the headache of researching dozens of websites, I’ve put the information down on one page with symbols and a map (at the end of the article) so you can see at a glance where each villa is located and how much they cost. I’m familiar with them all and here are my personal picks.

  • East Bedarra Island Retreat is my pick for couples. It gives you absolute privacy and the same waterfront luxury as the two waterfront Bedarra Resort villas, but at a fraction of the cost, and at the private and sheltered east end of the island.
  • Bedarra Beach Villa and Studio is my pick for families. It comfortably sleeps up to eight people with a separate studio and large communal areas giving everyone plenty of space. It is tucked away on sheltered, palm-fringed Dorilla Beach; a private little paradise.

But read on for the low down on every villa Bedarra Island has to offer.

Self-catering and Dining

There are no restaurants on Bedarra Island. The privately owned vacation villas have provided well-equipped kitchens and deck-side BBQ’s to make meal time part of the experience. Supplies can be picked up from one of the supermarkets at Mission Beach or arranged through your host.

Bedarra Resort is all-inclusive and has a restaurant for its guests.
