Drift Resort Palm Cove

Situated on Palm Cove’s esplanade, the design of Drift Apartments incorporates themes of the beach and the lush tropical rainforest of Far Northern Queensland. Listen to the waves and the warm summer breeze  setting the leaves of the majestic Melaleuca paperbark trees in motion as it is moving  throughout the complex.

Drift in Palm Cove is the place for a relaxing beach holiday in a modern and sophisticated environment. The bright colours of the modern interior add a cooling feel to the place and the outdoor furniture is perfect for putting up your feet and enjoying the views of the Coral Sea.

With four cafes, three restaurants, hairdressers and boutique retail shops conveniently located on site, everything that you need for the enjoyment of a holiday is right at your doorstep.

The centerpiece of Drift is the large lagoon pool that is inviting to a swim after a day of shopping in Palm Cove or experiencing one of the area’s many attractions. Several lounge chairs are provided on the wooden deck sourrunding the pool in the landscaped tropical gardens.

To ensure that you are up-to-date throughout your holiday, a business centre with internet access is accessible to all guests.

All apartments are fully airconditioned to resist Queensland’s all-year-round summer temperatures. The open plan living design of the apartments enhances a feeling of calm and freedom. Enjoy preparing fresh meals with local produce and dining alfresco on your private balcony. You will quickly feel like home in these well-equipped apartments.
