Call for offers as Elandra Mission Beach resort goes to market

Private resort Elandra Mission Beach has been put on the market with no price guide offered.

The sale comes 11 years after it was officially opened by singer Grace Jones, with the resort a magnet for celebrities looking to escape the public glare.

Located between Cairns and Townsville, the resort offers 40 boutique rooms overlooking the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and a pool once voted ‘Australia’s sexiest pool’ by Australian Traveller magazine.

Other amenities across the property’s 6.01 hectares include a restaurant, private dining rooms, cocktail bar, tennis court, helipad, boutique, library, and wellness rooms.

Listing agent Stephen Brown of Brown & Co described it as a “tropical sensory overload”.

“The Elandra has the potential to be run as a boutique lifestyle health retreat focusing on wellness, yoga, meditation or even a secluded and private haven for medicinal rehabilitation or detoxification purposes,” the listing reads.

The grounds are “more like a private zoo… with cassowaries, wallabies, echidnas, sea eagles, lace monitors, Birdwing and Ulysses butterflies, big white owls and cute little bandicoots who all call The Elandra Mission Beach home”.
