We offer Ocean view rooms, Apartments, Studio and Ocean Twin rooms for overnight, weekend, weekly or more, set amongst acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and breath taking views.

An amazing place to stay. It is clean, neat and stones throw from the beach. I would highly recommend Whitsunday Sands Resort to anyone looking for a weekend escape. Great walks and beautiful weather only added to a lovely stay.

The location could not be better. A beautiful view from your patio, a very short walk to Horseshoe Bay (a minute or two at the most) and also a short walk to Grays Bay to see lovely sunsets. So within a five minute walk you can see both sunrise and sunset - what could be better than that! The resort is a relaxed place to stay, not modern but clean, friendly and with a location and views that cannot be beaten.

Lovely resort walking distance from great beaches, coffee and restaurants. King apartment is separated from other rooms and private however guests walk past out the front so will need to keep blinds down if you want privacy, despite the great views! Clean with everything you need! Wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights.
