Wake up in a tranquil paradise!  Shambhala was created after a guest stayed with Executive Retreats and longed to have their own luxe ‘Executive Retreat’.  Designed by the best tropical architect in the north, this beautiful Chris Van Dyke creation is a welcome part of the Executive Retreats family.

The house is inspired by the beauty of Tropical North Queensland and has been designed pavilion style over one spacious level.  The home is open plan, with the kitchen and dining areas opening to the verandah and beyond to the wet edge swimming pool.  Three bedrooms can accommodate up to six discerning guests but this gorgeous home is also perfect for an intimate escape. Set against a hillside in the ancient rainforests that trickle through the Tropical North, be at one with nature and leave your troubles behind at this peaceful and private escape. 

Shambhala should definitely be on the short list for your luxury holiday when you are considering your Daintree and Port Douglas  accommodation, you can also bring your pooch as Shambhala is dog friendly!  Your Queensland adventure starts here!

Absolute bliss - secluded, quiet, peaceful, and private! Nestled in the forest, with beautiful views from the deck and pool - perfectly restful. Rained every day & still enjoyed swimming in the pool / lying in a hammock. 30 mins drive from Port Douglas restaurants & bars; alternatively kitchen was well-equipped & ready for cooking at home. Several rainforest walking trails within 30 mins drive.
