Welcome to Bedarra Beach Villa
Bedarra Island is the ultimate in Queensland island holidays, and Bedarra Beach Villa & Studio are one of the most romantic beach front villas on the island. The Great Barrier Reef is on your doorstep - literally! Bedarra Beach Villa is the signature property in the Contemporary Hotels collection. The villa and its surrounds have been documented in many books and magazines, including Wallpaper, Vogue Living and Belle. Bedarra Beach Villa also featured on Channel Seven's travel show The Great Outdoors. It's the ultimate in romantic escapes.
Your Own Private Tropical Haven
Both the Villa and the Studio are positioned near the waters edge on a private two acre estate which wraps around a palm-fringed white sandy beach. Prominent artists, photographers and writers consider Doorila Cove to be the most beautiful beach on Bedarra Island. Here you can swim or snorkel for hours in the warm clear turquoise waters of the coral sea with the colorful fish and turtles. Dugongs are also regular visitors to Bedarra Island.
The functional design of this Bedarra Island villa is languidly relaxed, yet comfortably modernist with interiors by renowned interior architect Ian Moore. Bedarra Beach Villa has two queen-sized bedrooms and an open plan lounge/dining space, which expands out to a large deck. All enjoy stunning views of the coral sea and the distant islands, extending to the oceans of the Great Barrier Reef, South Pacific and beyond.
The Studio is a separate fully self-contained structure twenty metres away, separated from the villa by palm trees and a bamboo fence to ensure privacy. The studio and villa can be booked together to accommodate up to seven or eight. But if you are just one couple, you will have the whole place to yourself. Your privacy is paramount and we do not book the Studio to other couples during your stay in Bedarra Beach Villa.
Originally built by prominent artist Noel Wood in the early 20th century, the Studio was his residence for more than 50 years. Since renovated by Ian Moore, it maintains many original features including the gin and cognac bottle feature wall, a stone fireplace, bamboo paneling and a collection of original bamboo furniture items handmade by Mr. Wood himself. A king-sized bedroom with an ensuite lies in its own pavilion, separate from the large open plan living and dining area.
There are only a small number of private homes on East Bedarra Island and there is no public access so you will never see any day-trippers.
Travelling to Bedarra Island will be relished by those who love a sense of adventure. This is a getaway in every sense and once there you'll feel worlds away from your daily routine. On Bedarra Island you can unwind in seclusion, but not in isolation. Our caretakers will wait on the beach for your arrival by boat to show you around Bedarra Beach Villa and provide information on Bedarra Island and everything it has to offer. We aim to ensure your stay at Bedarra Beach Villa is perfect.
Bedarra Beach Villa provides one of the most romantic accommodations for Queensland island holidays. Truly paradise found.
