  1. Beach Club Palm Cove

Managed by Peppers, the Beach Club & Spa is a sanctuary for those seeking a luxurious beachfront escape. This resort offers stylish accommodations with open terraces and private balconies overlooking the stunning Palm Cove beach, the crystal clear lagoon pool or the lush tropical gardens. The lagoon pool, with its sandy beach edge, is the heart of the resort, providing a perfect spot for relaxation and leisure. It is the only resort in Palm Cove to offer a swim up bar and pool toys for the kids mean the whole family can stay entertained for hours. The onsite spa offers an array of treatments, making it a perfect retreat for rejuvenation. There is an onsite restaurant, too. There’s really no need to leave!

The Beach Club resort accommodation options vary. Guests can book directly with Peppers to get the full resort experience including checking in at the 24 hour front desk, charging room service and resort facility costs to the room and having the front desk just a phone call away. Alternatively, guests can book a privately managed room. These are the same size and layout rooms but some are furnished slightly differently and there are a couple of other subtle differences. Privately managed apartments are managed offsite so your checkin will be managed through the property manager and you won’t be able to charge services to your room. All other facilities are available to use, including the gym and tennis court. You’ll find privately managed apartments are cheaper than booking direct. The Beach Club is by far the most popular resort that our guests book and if you want a specific location within the resort, you need to book up to 12 months in advance!
