Instead of clearing trees from Bedarra Island’s rainforest, the owners of East Bedarra Island Retreat left the smallest footprint possible by constructing a sustainable low-impact villa across the granite rocks right on the water’s edge. Two white-sand beaches flank the villa. A tidal rock pool by the master bedroom invites you for a dip.
The interior has a zen-like simplicity crafted from quality natural materials. The bathrooms are Italian marble, the pale granite kitchen opens onto a sprawling deck over the water with a moonlight cinema and dining area. You can see the ocean from your bed without even lifting your head.
“There is nowhere else where you can stand on the deck of a luxury beach house suspended over the Great Barrier Reef and wave to your lover swimming against the backdrop of a pearl-like string of tropical islands.” Beautiful Accommodations
What guests love: The unparalleled location on the waters edge, the tidal pool, the private beaches and the enormous deck.
