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 :-)
