Resorts in Cairns is a travellers guide for fun places to stay for the whole family.
We've complied this list to include Cairns to Palm Cove.
Lakes Resort and Spa is one of the Resorts in Cairns that's only minutes to the CBD and really close to Flecker Botanic Gardens.
This lovely resort is set amidst 11 acres of tropical gardens with four lagoon-style pools, including one heated outdoor spa.
The Resort offers 2 restaurants, one of which is located at the main reception building. It's quiet and intimate and the food and service is excellent.
One of the most popular Cairns Hairdressing Salons is Reds and it's right here at Lakes Resort.
It's a few kilometres from Cairns CBD so we'd suggest you hire a car to drive around, however if you're not tied to a timetable, the resort has a shuttle bus that goes into town every hour.
There are other resorts in Cairns, however we're reluctant to mention them now, as their standards have slipped considerably and guest reviews have been poor.

Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort is right in the heart of the city, and over the road from the historic Cairns City Library.
When this was built, they retained the huge Mango trees surrounding the perimeter.

Don't be surprised when you come across some beautiful butterflies such as the Ulysees, as they love some of the tropical flowers the resorts in Cairns cultivate and the Oasis is no exception.
