The 3 Best Hotels in Cairns

1. Riley

Riley Hotel in Cairns, Australia
Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4252 7777
This new, vast, and chic tropical resort faces the sea and is positioned quietly on the edge of downtown. It boasts Cairn’s finest pool – massive and lagoon-style, with sandy edges and a shallow section for children. All accommodations are well-sized, and views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the tower are jaw-dropping.

2. Pullman Reef Hotel Casino

Pullman Reef Hotel Casino in Cairns, Australia
Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4030 8888
Much more enticing than just a casino hotel, the Pullman is particularly convenient, quiet, and luxurious. The overall décor and design are likably old-fashioned, yet also chic, and the pool and gym are both larger than expected. Uniquely within the remarkable roof above the casino are Cairns ZOOM (for zip-lining) and the Wildlife Dome, packed with Australian wildlife.

3. Bailey

Hotel Phone: +61 (0)7 4253 4000
Based in two distinctive green towers, this fashionable hotel offers spacious rooms with chic décor and all the mod-cons, as well as self-contained apartments ideal for those staying a while. Nicely located within the city center and opposite a park teeming with bats, the Bailey has a world-class steakhouse and is surrounded by other terrific places to eat, drink, and shop.
