I have just spent 3 night at this wonderful property. Anthony & Andre are great hosts and their 2 Swiss dogs are a delight. The property is about 10 minutes from Port Douglas - a car is a must but you will need one if you wish to visit Daintree, Mossman, palm Cove & Cairns.We had a delightful room -...

A wonderful place to unwind, to enjoy the views and the wonderful emphasis on customer satisfaction. The breakfast is wonderfully served on a terrace overlooking the valley - just gorgeous...! Everything was meticulously clean and guests were so well looked after....!

My goodness.... What can I say about Mai Tai that hasn't already been said? In short, the place (and the owners) are fabulous! Of course every review preceeding mine articulates in exquisite detail how wonderful Mai Tai is, but allow me to add my two cents.... Firstly, Andre and Anthony give a new definition to 'personalised service'. Whilst staying at...

We are regulars to Port Douglas having stayed at Sea Temple and Bale on previous visits. On a prior visit we called into Mai Tai and were impressed by the location and decided to give it a go when next holidaying in the area. We booked online and managed to secure the Executive Villa at the discounted rate of $450...

If Buddha himself needed a holiday this is where he would stay! It is absolutely wonderful and the two guys who own it Anthony and Andree are meticulous in presenting this tropical heaven! Their attention to detail is brilliant and the glorious timber furnishings and ornaments and statues placed around this getaway is just stunning! But don't listen to me,...

My wife and I just completed a 4-night stay at Mai Tai as the beginning leg to a two week holiday in Australia and NZ. Without a doubt this was the best bed & breakfast experience we have ever had.

The title says it all... but it wouldn't be a review without a little more information ....so here it goes.

Beautiful views, nature on your doorstep, tasteful South-East Asian decor, friendly/helpful/welcoming staff. Can one say much more? The owner-managers clearly built and run this place as their pride and passion and it shows. A few days here is like a relaxing little piece of bliss.
