What You’ll Love...

The Location – An untouched island gem perched in the middle of the Coral Sea

Nestled at the southern point of Long Island, in the Whitsundays, Elysian Retreat is located on a three-hectare private cove, surrounded by rainforest and by the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef.

One of the most secluded islands in the area, Long Island is a lush dot in the middle of the sea, part of a the Conway National Park with kilometers of walking trails to explore. Measuring just 9km in length and just 400m in width, with minimal traffic and no day visitors, the island is an exclusive destination available only for the 20 guests of Elysian Retreat.

Getting there is easier than you think: you can reach Elysian Retreat via a 30-minutes helicopter journey from either Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Coast Airport (Proserpine) or Whitsunday Airport (Shute Harbour) over the picturesque Whitsunday Islands or Conway National Park. Boat transfers are available as well from Shute Harbour and Hamilton Island, depending on arrival and departure dates.

The Resort – Sustainable luxury in a spectacular location

The latest addition to the boutique Sojourn Retreats’ brand and sister property of Pumpkin Island resort – nominated as Australasia’s most sustainable resort in 2018 – Elysian Retreat is a soulfully crafted oasis committed to sustainable, holistic tourism.

An adults-only haven designed with the natural surroundings in mind, every aspect of the resort allows you to disconnect from your day-to-day routine: unwind in the outdoor hammocks, find your inner peace in the zen garden, read a book on the day beds surrounded by nature, or float in the resort’s mineral pool to relieve stresses, anxiety, muscle aches and pains.

The Villa – Your own private haven

With a collection of just 10 beautifully appointed villas catering for a maximum of 20 guests, Elysian exudes romantic seclusion. Each villa boasts sweeping views of the ocean and the Conway National Park to the west, mountain and rainforest views to the east, and is just steps away from the ocean, allowing you to fall asleep to the gentle sound of the waves.

The epitome of laid-back luxury, your Oceanfront Villa is crafted from solid Australian hardwood and features large windows opening on to a private balcony, a modern bathroom with luxury organic amenities and a minibar stocked with complimentary beverages. Pop open your bottle of Quartz Reef Blanc de Blanc, handcrafted in Central Otago, New Zealand and toast to your escape in paradise.

The Food – Indulge in an all-inclusive meals featuring ever-changing menus designed to your likings

As an all-inclusive retreat, Elysian will provide you with daily gourmet breakfast, al fresco or picnic lunches and sumptuous three-course dinners with matched wines.

You will embark on a refined bespoke culinary experience inspired by the natural surroundings of Long Island and the Whitsundays. The experienced chefs will create daily menus designed to meet your taste preferences and dietary requirements, crafted using only the freshest seasonal produce sourced from the Island’s own vegetable garden and from nearby farming regions.

Start your day with an a la carte breakfast, accompanied by fresh juice or coffee. Enjoy a delicious al fresco lunch or a picnic hamper for a romantic lunch in your secret corner of the island. Head to the firepit or relax by the pool as you sample delicious canapes accompanied by a cocktail from 5.30pm onwards. Then take a seat in the main pavilion dining room for a decadent, three-course dinner, with each course accompanied by a glass of the finest Australian or New Zealand wine. If you are lucky enough to reel in a fish, the Head Chef will be happy to prepare your catch for dinner that night.

BONUS: Staying seven or nine nights in this oasis? Enjoy a few little extra treats: indulge with a complimentary high tea in the garden area or in the privacy of your villa, with a delicious selection of sweet and savoury treats, plus enjoy a complimentary beach picnic with a selection of cheeses and treats.
