Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Overlooking the Coral Sea, Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns offers rooms with a private balcony and city, mountain or ocean views. The location was excellent, we could walk to the lagoon boardwalk easily and get to restaurants in about 10 minutes. We also booked a day at Kuranda Rainforest through a tour company downtown at the recommendation of the hotel concierge, who advised that it is easy to find a good deal by trying a couple tour companies and comparing prices. The room was luxurious, spacious, and clean. We tried the breakfast one morning, which was a bit expensive by my taste, but it was varied and not bad. You can buy a drink at the bar or even at a vending machine to take back to your room, which was fun. The hotel concierges were all very friendly and helpful.
