It indulges both body and soul, with no compromise on life’s little luxuries. For those seeking solitude, relaxation and rejuvenation Bloomfield is the pinnacle in luxury lodging.The 17 individual natural timber rooms are beautifully appointed and have been thoughtfully constructed in private rainforest settings to ensure the guest experience is peaceful.Each room features ensuite facilities and large picture windows capturing stunning ocean views, and large balconies perfect for those long restful days spent reading on the comfy daybeds whilst glancing up occasionally to catch the brilliant blue flicker of the Ulysses butterflies who call Bloomfield home.Bloomfield offers a range of activities including, rainforest walks, river cruises, boating and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef (with the option of a gourmet picnic lunch on Hope Island), fishing, and relaxing spa treatments including massage and beauty therapies.
