Okay, Pirates, we have seen some pretty awesome accommodations in our time, but this one has to be one of our favorites! Did you know you can sleep in the Coral Sea on the Great Barrier Reef?
Reefworld is a pontoon moored offshore at Hardy Reef and there are a number of experiences you can enjoy, including a night on-deck, or you can go all out and stay in a stunning Reefsuite below deck with stunning views of the Great Barrier Reef.
The experience starts off with a cruise through the Whitsunday Islands to get to Hardy Reef at around 11 am. You will then enjoy lunch before having the opportunity to take a helicopter ride, snorkel, dive, or swim.
Later in the evening you can watch a stunning sunset whilst enjoying a starlit long-table dinner on the pontoon's upper deck before heading down to your room to watch the gorgeous sea life of the coral reef.
The underwater rooms have windows in the walls as well as the floor so you will have great views of the fish and other cool animals that may swim by. You will fall asleep to this stunning view as well as waking up to it too, before enjoying a delicious breakfast.
For your trip, you should bring a small overnight bag with toiletries, change of clothes, swimwear, protective clothing, hat and sunscreen, camera/phone, light jacket or sweater, and cash/credit card for any optional activities you choose to take part in.
