We had a wonderful trip at Elysian. The staff were accomodating to our every need. My partner had planned a proposal with the Elysian team’s help, to celebrate for us they had set up our villa with fairy lights, flower petals and offered a private intimate dinner on our balcony looking out at the ocean.

Every single meal prepared by the chef was amazing! We absolutely loved every single day we stayed at the retreat, highly recommend !

This is a secluded eco lodge and I t’s done the trick. We are relaxed. It’s comfortable with the amenities you would expect from an eco-lodge. The staff are superb. Some of the most attentive service we have had anywhere in world. They learn your preferences and respond. The food is also superb. The variety, quality and quantity of food is spot on. The Chefs are engaged and responsive. They care about your enjoyment of the food and you develop a relationship with them which is a nice touch. It’s intimate and that’s ok, but it was a little awkward at times if you were not feeling social.

The Marsh flies were a nuisance, but if you are going to travel up here and expect no bugs you’d be a bit of a goose. First Adults only resort to deliver an absolutely no kids experience. It’s not a big fancy resort it’s a small intimate retreat. We’ve enjoyed our stay.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, our food and customer service. We are a small, family owned resort and creating a relaxed, intimate environment is the aim.

You'll be pleased to hear the marsh flies are not a "norm" so not something you should necessarily have to worry about if you visit again in future :)

We have only just left the resort 4/12/2020 after staying 7 nights and the experience we had for my birthday and our 30 year wedding anniversary was more that you could ever expect, firstly arriving by helicopter is something special and a little different, Charlton and his staff are extraordinary Johnno and Brenton the 2 head chef’s surprise us with every delicious meal they served, and the rest of the staff were more than happy to help you with whatever you requested or required. If you ever the chance to go make sure you book the Whitehaven Beach Tour it’s incredible and the photos you see before you go don’t really doses it justice
The villas were really clean and comfortable
Ive been to many places around the world and I’ve never put anything on TripAdvisor or Google reviews before but this place was worth the effort
Once again Thank You Charlton and his team

We have just had 4 nights at Elysian and it was the perfect place in so many ways. If you are looking for a boutique and secluded experience with great service, great food and absolute peace and quiet this is the perfect choice.

We had a number of activities to fill in between our lazy time around the pool. We went kayaking, national park walks, day trip to whitehaven (which is a must do). The staff were so helpful in providing backpacks, picnics and equipment.

The in house spa has amazing massages and the morning yoga is such a positive way to start the day. The food is all amazing everyone staying enjoyed every meal and the drinks are at a price where you can enjoy them as much as you please.

I highly recommend this family run 5 star resort. It is a great choice away from the hustle and bustle if you want a secluded tropical not touristy paradise!
