Cairns Accommodation Guide

Even though Cairns has an international airport that has over 3 million visitors coming thru it annually Cairns city is still only a very small regional city. Some of these arrivals holiday in the city whilst other inbound guests disperse to other regions such as Palm Cove or Port Douglas or straight out to a live-aboard dive boat on the Great Barrier Reef.

Even though Cairns is only small it still offers international style three, four and five star hotels, resorts, motel and backpacker style accommodation to suit every single type of travellers needs and budget.

The city was built around the harbour and Trinity Inlet so you can find mid-rise and high rise accommodation to take advantage of the water views to the south and the east whilst to the north and the west you can see the rainforest clad green mountains.

The team at Cairns Holiday Specialists know each and every single accommodation house in and around Cairns and can give you the best advice on the type and location of holiday accommodation to suit you and your fellow travellers.

Cairns Accommodation Choices

Cairns is a big destination for meetings, conferences and sporting events with guests and sports people arriving from all over the world. We also cater for the inbound group markets such as the Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Korean markets along with the free and independent travellers from the United Kingdom, United States of America, New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the world. 

Visitors come to Cairns mainly to see one thing and that is Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef.

The group markets prefer to stay in a regional city location as their holidays are very short and they like to race around and see as much as possible in just a few days so they stay close in the city to enable them to walk around the shops in the evening and take local tours from their hotels each day.

Cairns Five Star Hotels

Cairns has four five star style international hotels and each one of them offers rooms with water and or mountain views and one of these hotels is affiliated with a casino. These hotels also offer day spa facilities, gymnasiums and club or executive floors for guests that like that little extra and some private areas to relax.  

None of these five star hotels are self-catering they are true five star full service hotels with daily room service, porters and 24 hour reception and business centres.

Five Star Self-Catering Accommodation

There are two five star self-catering holiday apartment complexes located on the Cairns Esplanade and they offer views over the parklands and out to the ocean. They offer one, two and three bedroom apartments and the ground floor apartments also offer swim out rooms that give you direct access to slide into the swimming pool from your balcony.

Swim out Rooms

Swim out rooms are by far the most popular type of holiday accommodation as you do not even have to leave your apartment to walk thru the resort to get to the swimming pools. The swim out rooms sell out very quickly so we  suggest that you call to book your accommodation early to ensure you can secure a swim out room for yourself and your travelling party.

Should you miss out on securing one of these rooms in Cairns then we can accommodate you with swim out rooms in either Palm Cove or Port Douglas.

Four Star Holiday Accommodation

There are around twenty eight four star style accommodation houses in Cairns and these range from full service hotels to self-catering holiday apartments. Some are located city central near the Cairns Convention Centre or right in the central business district in amongst the shopping.

Three Star Holiday Accommodation

Cairns Three star accommodation is scattered around city central and also on the outskirts of town and they offer travellers a good quality stay for a great price. These properties are extremely popular with families and coach groups.

Cairns Holiday Homes

The majority of Holiday Homes are located towards Cairns' Northern Beaches of Palm Cove and further to Port Douglas

Cairns Accommodation With Jacuzzi And Or Heated Swimming Pools

As we are in the topics of northern Australia there is no real need for heated swimming pools or hot Jacuzzi tubs but we do get the odd request for accommodation that does offer these facilities.

In Cairns you will find only a handful of properties with a heated swimming pool. We do also have a selection of accommodation options in Port Douglas, Cairns Beaches and Palm Cove with heated Swimming Pools or Spas.  Ensure to ask us for your winter holiday.

If you have a specific requirement for your holiday accommodation be it a special occasion such as a honeymoon or a wedding, a conference or sports travel, or just a wonderful relaxing holiday then call the team at The Cairns Holiday Specialists for the right advice and the best accommodation prices.
