Family-owned five star eco retreat with private beach frontage surrounded by 145 acres of native forest.

Conveniently located between Cairns and Port Douglas, the romance of Thala Beach Nature Reserve begins with a magical coconut plantation.

A meandering drive takes you to the main lodge built on a headland and open to the light of the tropics. Here, Thala opens her heart to the natural beauty of North Queensland.

From the open timber pavilions of the main lodge views of rainforests, mountains and sweeping ocean are interrupted only by the filigree of eucalypts and the dance of butterflies. The sounds of Thala are those of nature; bird song, the wash of waves and the tremor of leaves in a tropical breeze.

Ideal for the private elopers, or more boutique weddings of up to 65 guests, there is no doubting the special uniqueness that is Thala Beach Nature Reserve. Natural beautiful beaches surround the coconut aisle which directs you to the beach ceremony. Tranquil, vast views of the Coral Sea create the perfect reception area.

A variety of delicious menu options and beverage packages are available to suit the most discerning of diners. The natural setting of Thala Beach Nature Reserve makes it the natural choice for the most important and romantic day of your life.

We make your choice our passion with attention to every detail.

What an amazing location and such an amazing team of people to deal with. Diana and her colleagues were just superb. Very attentive and supportive through the entire process of planning right up to the day - ensuring everything ran smoothly. I can not recommend Diana and Thala Beach Resort highly enough - such a pleasure to deal with and in the end Diana felt like part of our wedding family :-)

Thank you for your kind words. Congratulations to you both.

Having our wedding at Thala was a dream come true. The views were spectacular, the food was delicious and the service was superb. Diana was just wonderful to work with, collaborating and executing the perfect day. Diana was very considerate of what we wanted and made for a stress-free experience.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Thala Beach Nature Reserve. Diana and the team were exceptional in their service. Diana assisted in planning the wedding day and took the stress out of the organisation (we planned the wedding in 8 weeks). The whole day was a dream with beautiful arrangements, amazing food, organisation was perfect and happy helpful staff. Couldn't have asked for better. Diana knows how to put on a fabulous event! The Thala is also a perfect location for a relaxed and beachy wedding.

We stayed at Thala Beach for our Honeymoon week. It is a naturally beautiful place. We weren't blessed with the best weather, however enjoyed a relaxed and peaceful stay here. It was close enough to Port Douglas, the Daintree, Cape Tribulation and Atherton Tablelands to explore as our home base.

Angie was amazing. So accommodating in all of my requests and on the day was brilliant. Made sure everything ran smoothly and kept me calm and relaxed. The beach location for the ceremony was first class.

Such a beautiful relaxing and private lodge. This was a surprise honeymoon for me and my husband out did himself. The whole property was amazing; private beach, treetop living and great customer service. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to go to TNQ

Thala Beach Lodge located south of Port Douglas is a fantastic place to stay and get married if there is just two of you or if you have a small amount of guests and you want a tropical jungle beach feel to your wedding the rooms are beautiful wooden huts and the hole place has the Tarzan and Jane approach to it

Simply amazing. Gorgeous cabin with amazing views over the coral sea. Staff were all lovely and very accommodating. The cabins are very spacious which allows lots of room for hair/makeup/photographer. Would highly recommend staying here and can't wait to return.

Fantastic location and views, lovely & helpful staff, private and relaxing. Decor is quite dated in the rooms so a refurb would do it wonders
