Set high on the hillside of South Mission Beach, The Elandra is renowned for stunning views over Dunk Island & The Coral Sea, and unsurpassed personalized service. In the centre of the Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, The Elandra is a perfect natural getaway, secluded yet right in the midst of exciting activities.

Situated on top of the headland of South Mission Beach, the main complex of The Elandra has breathtaking views over Dunk Island and the Coral Sea from the foyer, restaurant & bar area, to the pool and terrace. The rooms are located along a series of elevated timber boardwalks winding along the hillside below the main complex.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Stayed at the Elandra resort for a wedding and it’s a beautiful place, the rooms were gorgeous! The only thing that was annoying was walking up the stairs in heels and my heels were going right through the decking by the pool so there ended up being holes everywhere, being that they hold lots of weddings there you’d think it would cater to women in heels

Review:   I have been to this property many times over the past 30 years and what a fantastic location. A really nice place to relax and enjoy the breeze, the views, the rainforest, the walking track down to the ocean, the pool and restaurant. Mother nature cyclones have crossed this place many times but with a lot of luck it has never been destroyed. Go there and enjoy this wonderful place.

Review:   Food was excellent. Every meal was fantastic. With attention to presentation detail and tasting delicious. The resort is still under repairs from the cyclones in parts. However this in no way detracted from our experience.
