Upscale Offerings At Rainforest Retreat

With a newly renovated pool open for guests to enjoy, Kipara Tropical Rainforest Retreat has completed the next stage in its revitalisation, welcoming guests to indulge in the tranquil pool grounds, with new tiles, decking, and pool furniture.

Kipara also boasts a suite of new villas, which were specially designed for the Retreat and are located near the fully equipped outdoor camp kitchen and dining area which was constructed in December last year.

With three tiers of premium secluded accommodation, Kipara is only minutes away from the Airlie Beach CBD, set in the beautiful tropical rainforest setting of Jubilee Pocket.

“It’s got a serene rainforest feel and friendly wildlife like our goannas and our curlews,” explains Retreat Manager, Sarah Bowden.

Nestled in nature, but complemented with creature comforts, there is something for every guest at Kipara.

Each private room comes with its own ensuite and has plenty of features including a bar fridge, a TV and extensive storage.

Families can enjoy a two-bedroom villa with living room and fully furnished kitchen, with beautiful bespoke furniture and décor.

For smaller groups there is also the option of the one-bedroom retreat with similar features in a slightly smaller space.

No matter if you’re on a couple’s getaway, a family holiday, or a group adventure, Kipara can accommodate all your holiday dreams.

Looking after every aspect of a weekend getaway, the team has extensive local knowledge and can book dinner or lunch reservations, local tours or even just taxis to get around town.  

“We love it here and we want all our guests to love their time here, at Kipara, and in Airlie Beach,” said Sarah.
