These Underwater Suites in Australia Have the Most Impressive Views of the Great Barrier Reef

Move over Maldives, there's another destination with impressive underwater accommodations: Australia.


Located 40 nautical miles from Airlie Beach on Australia's northeastern coast, the Reefsuites are the country's first underwater accommodation, inviting travelers to spend the night with views of the iconic Great Barrier Reef. These suites, on board Cruise Whitsundays' Reefworld pontoon boat, feature floor-to-ceiling windows for ample opportunities to watch the marine life swim by, as well as luxurious beds (either one king-sized bed or two twins) so guests can sleep beneath the waves.

Guests of Reefsuites who check in for the underwater experience will start their day with a cruise through the idyllic Whitsunday Islands before making their way to Hardy Reef, where the Reefworld vessel is moored. As an all-inclusive vacation package, visitors will enjoy a hearty lunch followed by an afternoon of snorkeling, diving, and swimming. For an additional cost, travelers can book a scenic helicopter flight to see the perfectly shaped Heart Reef.
