This spacious and modern 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom spa apartment is located within one of the very best beach front resorts in Palm Cove, and only approximately a 5 minute stroll to great restaurants and shops. Temple 221 is sure to create the perfect holiday, honeymoon or business trip. Great for couples, families or singles, no matter what the reason for your stay, you will be sure to enjoy and be very comfortable in this clean, beautiful holiday accommodation.
The resort itself (as the apartment is privately managed we cannot tell you its name though you can probably guess), has a peaceful modern Balinese theme throughout, making you wonder whether you unknowingly took a trip overseas.
The pools (and there are 3 of them) are the best at Palm Cove. An enormous lagoon pool spreads out in the centre of the resort. Complete with steps for those mobility impaired or for your young children and surrounded by sun lounges. A second large lap pool motivates those with fitness in mind. A third large pool located away from the other two pools is specific to young children, being shallow and featuring a waterfall where they can splash around for hours, whilst mum and dad enjoy that well deserved cocktail on the nearby sun lounges whilst keeping an eye on them.
Head to the resort gym after your morning coffee and work off the previous day's cocktails- or not!
A cafe/ bar next to the pools ensures you won't go hungry or thirsty and for a more formal dining experience try the beautiful restaurant located within the resort.
A trip to the resort day spa will soon have you floating above the clouds.
The beautiful palm fringed beach is only a 50 meter stroll. You can walk to the restaurants along the beach or you can walk via the road, either way you will reach them comfortably in minutes on foot.

Palm Cove is located in Far North Queensland and is on the coast of Australia. It is guarded from the South Pacific Ocean by the Great Barrier Reef. Palm Cove is completely surrounded by the Daintree Tropical Rainforest and is close to Daintree National Park. Since Palm Cove is located in a tropical climate, the average summer temperature is between 24 and 33 degrees Celsius; average winter temperature is between 14 and 26 degrees Celsius. The pristine beaches and Palm tree lined paths are used by joggers, walkers and cyclists and netted life guard patrol swimming enclosures offer safe access to the sea all year round. The Palm cove jetty is one of the regions most popular fishing spots where anglers regularly catch species such as mackerel, Giant Trevally or "G.T's" and if you are really in luck Barramundi and Mangrove Jack.
Filled with rich, golden sand, Palm Cove Beach is the place to be while visiting this holiday destination. While the depth of the beach is short, the sands stretch a great length, which makes Palm Cove Beach the perfect location for a romantic sunrise or sunset stroll. Designated swimming areas allow those with children and novice swimmers to feel at ease, and outside the swimming area, the expansive surf provides an unbeatable surfing experience. Before you leave, pick a spot up on the shore under one of the many palm trees, and have a picnic. There are numerous restaurants and cafes around the beach, most of which provide fantastic takeout options. As you dine, you have breathtaking views over the ocean.
While this quiet beach town offers a relaxing setting, Palm Cove offers plenty to do. Do not forget to bring your fishing rod along when you head to the beach, as the town's jetty is nearby and offers a great fishing destination. Further out into the water, sea kayaking, sailing, cruising and deep-sea fishing are fun activities. If you like to play on land, try horseback riding, long walks, bird watching, golfing or playing tennis. There is even an activity for those that want a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: hot air balloon rides. Take in the lush landscape and the soothing blue water from high above as you partake in this safe and exhilarating way to see Palm Cove.
The Great Barrier Reef is located just a short boat ride off the coast of Palm Cove, and this means that all of the colourful wonder that lies just beneath the crystal-clear blue waters of the ocean are within your reach. Hire a boat tour to take your party out to the reef for the best experience. Many of the companies provide all of the snorkels, diving gear and water toys needed for fun on the reef. The small islands in the middle of the reef are a great place for families with small children to splash about, and with the high population of marine life, colourful fish and coral, there is always something to see, even from the shore.
Another great place for exploration, Daintree National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers an unforgettable outdoor experience. The flourishing rainforest that fills the park is a great environment for frogs, reptiles, birds, mammals and even bats and butterflies, which means there is always something to look at as you hike through. Various walking paths allow you to fully explore the rainforest, and there are tour guides available for hire.
