It features two vichy rooms, a steam room and a double-sized signature treatment room as well as an oversized outdoor tub overlooking lush tropical gardens.

"...The Dunk Island holiday was absolutely fabulous. My husband even bought me a bunch of flowers when we got home to thank me for such a beautiful holiday..."Karen R., Melbourne, Australia

"...we really loved Dunk Island and of course did not want to leave. The rooms were great, right on the beach. There were so many activities, too many to be able to do in a week. We did get out to the Great Barrier Reef, do the circuit of the island twice through the rain forest, try out the various beaches and generally over indulge on the food..."Helen S., Boston, USA.
