When you simply do not wish to
be found...

Bedarra is Australia's most unique resort, and the ultimate in barefoot luxury.

Bedarra comprises just ten private villas hidden amongst 45 hectares of tropical rainforest, offering solitude, privacy and sublime views over the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef.

Accommodating a maximum of 18 other guests, you are guaranteed a sanctuary of seclusion and solace and a personalized island escape like no other.

The Bedarra Experience

Bedarra offers an unparalelled escape to enjoy rest, relaxation and and precious shared time together.

We pride ourselves on offering unique experiences without equal. Enjoy a candlelit dinner for two on your own private beachfront deck, pack a chef-prepared gourmet hamper in your own dinghy for a romantic picnic on one of the nearby deserted islands or simply disappear into a hammock with a book while being serenaded by the soundtrack of swaying palms and gentle waves.

 

Accommodation

Bedarra features only ten guest villas, each hidden amongst the tropical rainforest and enjoying spectacular ocean views.

All villas on Bedarra offer their own unique experience, each being slightly different from the others. Some villas are situated literally a few steps from the beach, several feature private infinity edge plunge pools, some have outdoor rainforest bathrooms and some offer expansive private sundecks and daybeds...

While each of our villas is unique, they all offer a true escape from civilisation, a private sanctuary of solitude and relaxation to revitalise the soul - and the ultimate in barefoot luxury.

 

Dining

The open terrace restaurant, bar and lounge are the heart and soul of Bedarra, where guests converge to indulge in a delicious and ever-changing menu or to gather at the legendary open bar. An exquisite menu (that changes daily) is matched with hand picked wines from our extensive selection.
