Just back from a week at Rose Bay Resort in Bowen, Queensland, Australia. It is definitely a 'must do'. The resort itself is highly recommended with a variety of self contained units to suit any requirements. The location and surrounds are spectacular with so much to do. There is a reef just off the beach - check out the movie....

Nice place to stay and chill out but a little bit remote. Not many restaurants, bars or shops around but fine if you have a car. It's a quick drive into town. Staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back.

Thanks. Yes we agree, it is best to have a car. We are only 4.5 km from the centre of town however without a car it is difficult to get around and see all of Bowen sites. Hope to see you next time you are in Bowen. Cheers Paul

We booked a weekend away at the last minute and where very happy with our choice. Location- excellent, couldn't have asked for better. Right on the beach which seemed to be all ours most of the time.

Ideally situated in a small, quiet bay with awesome sea views and Gloucester Island (I think) in the distance. Well equipped units with a choice from studio to Penthouse. Nice restaurants available in Bowen and other beaches. Also pet friendly.

We stayed in a studio apartment with a private balcony overlooking the bay. The room was spacious and clean with everything we needed for a long weekend.

We needed a few days break away and rather than go to the busy and crowded Airlie Beach we decided to stay in Bowen and found this little resort which is right on the beach.
