What to Expect

Spend a magical night in Australia’s first underwater accommodation and have a front-row seat to the dazzling underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. Be prepared for an intimate experience that will stay with you forever.


Moored offshore at Hardy Reef, 40 nautical miles from Airlie Beach, Reefworld is the setting for your spectacular overnight Reefsuite experience. Relaunching in 2019, the revamped pontoon hosts day-trippers, on-deck Reefsleep guests and a lucky few who’ll head below deck for a private, all-inclusive Reefsuite experience.


There are two underwater rooms available (king double or twin single options), and each features premium bedding, glass-walled en suite and floor-to-ceiling views of the spectacular underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. 


Begin your journey with a cruise through the Whitsunday Islands to Hardy Reef onboard the high-speed vessel, arriving at the reef around 11:00 am. You can choose to depart from Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island, or Daydream Island. 


After lunch, guests can snorkel, dive, swim or take a scenic helicopter flight to see the famous Heart Reef (additional cost). Day visitors depart mid-afternoon, and then overnight guests have Hardy Reef and Reefworld all to themselves.


Watch a stunning sunset with a drink in hand before enjoying a starlit long-table dinner on the pontoon’s upper deck. After dinner, Reefsuite guests can retreat to the privacy of their undersea accommodation. Sit back, relax and watch as the reef comes to life through the floor to ceiling windows.


Reefsuites give a whole new meaning to ‘a room with a view’, and you’ll awake to see the marine life going about another day on the World Heritage-listed reef they call home. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and an exclusive morning on the reef before heading home in the afternoon with memories that will stay with you forever.
