Hotel Review: Frangipani B & B

The perfect tropical getaway requires the perfect accommodation, which is exactly what we got at Frangipani Bed & Breakfast. This is easily Port Douglas’ best accommodation and the perfect bed and breakfast for relaxation!

This four bedroom house is located on a quiet street in Port Douglas, about an hour north of Cairns. The home is less than a 10 minute drive from the main street in Port Douglas and less than a two minute walk from the beach. Frangipani Bed & Breakfast was the perfect oasis. Quiet and relaxing, while still perfectly located close to everything.

The main level of the house includes a kitchen and living room that are completely open to the elements. There’s plenty of seating overlooking the tropical lagoon-style pool and an outdoor buffet set up each morning for breakfast.

Upstairs are three individual rooms, each with a stunning balcony overlooking the pool, a king size bed and ensuite bathrooms.  We stayed in the “Blue Room” which had a beautiful bathroom, huge bed and a gorgeous balcony with comfortable chairs and fresh fruit. When we weren’t sitting downstairs by the pool we were enjoying a drink on our private balcony.

A buffet breakfast was served each morning out by the pool, and included a wide selection of breads, cereals, yogurt, fruit and more. The homemade bread was to die for, and the local tropical fruit was delicious!

Of course the beautiful house certainly made this an enjoyable stay, but it was owners Leona and Bob that really made our visit memorable. You can tell they love playing hosts to the international tourists that pass through Port Douglas and are always willing to share their stories and recommendations on the best things to do in Port Douglas! That personalized touch is what makes Frangipani Bed & Breakfast the type of place you want to visit again and again.

Port Douglas is the best city to visit the Great Barrier Reef from, and Frangipani Bed & Breakfast is only a 10 minute drive from the marina for cruise departures. The convenience of the location is fantastic, allowing you to be close to attractions while still staying close to the gorgeous Four Mile Beach. Frangipani Bed & Breakfast also has bicycles for guests to use to bike into town!
