  • When is the best time to visit your property for the perfect beach holiday?

    Honestly, there isn't really a bad time. We are sheltered from large waves by Fraser Island and the weather is quite friendly all year round. The only time that is less fun outdoors is when it is raining, but we try tot ensure the venue itself makes up for this inside!

  • Are you allowed to smoke on your balcony or terrace

    No - we are proudly a 100% smoke free retreat. Guests who wish to smoke, can easily cross the road from ZEN or go to the beach downwind from the property. We find these guidelines add to the comfort and consideration of all guests - non-smokers and smokers alike.

  • Hey, i'm thinking of booking the whole resort out towards the end of 2020, have you had any guests book out every suite before, if so how did that go?

    Of course, we do this all the time at ZEN and can certainly look at a whole retreat package for you. In fact it is one of the options
