Cairns Esplanade Accommodation has stunning views overlooking the Coral Sea.
The Esplanade accommodation caters to business travelers, couples and families.
They're all within a few kilometers from the Lagoon, restaurants and shops.
It's a lovely walk watching the boats come and go from the Marina.
Some of the hotels on The Cairns Esplanadeare among the best the city has, and theShangri La Hotel is no exception.
Beside the Cairns Marlin Marina and overlooking luxury yachts towards the Coral Sea, it's part of The Pier Complex.
Built in the late 80's early 90's, it's seen a few revamps, but this latest one is pretty awesome.
The different choices of rooms are large and ultra chic, with balconies that have spectacular views of the Marina and the city.
Relax around the pool area while taking in the sea breezes. Cool off in the refreshing water or arrange a massage.
For the more energetic, exercise in the gym which offers state-of-the-art cardio training and strength equipment.
Staff are friendly and always willing to help. It's also right next to the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon.
You won't be disappointed.
From $196.00 per night.
1 Pier Point Road
One of my favorites of all the Cairns Esplanade Hotels is this one.
From the moment they started to build, it appeared vibrant and inviting! And it was in a great location!
Its walking distance from everything, including restaurants, shops and the Cairns Lagoon.
The tour boats set off almost at your doorstep at Reef Terminal.
This is exclusive and luxurious accommodation.
All the apartments are spacious with full kitchen facilities.
Studio rooms are also spacious with contemporary style furnishings.
All rooms have magnificent views of the Cairns Marlin Marina or the city from your own private balcony.
The fully equipped gym is there to help you tone up your muscles.
If you're seeking a less strenuous way to relax, then there's also a soothing sauna, spa, or just take a leisurely swim in the pool with a view.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Harbour Lights is outstanding.
From $135.00 per night.
1 Marlin Parade
This would have to be the best position of the Cairns Esplanade.
Situated in the heart of The Esplanade and across from the Cairns Lagoon and Cairns Marlin Marina, this hotel is gorgeous.
Hotel rooms are clean and contemporary, while their self contained one and two bedroom apartments offer kitchen and laundry facilities. All their rooms feature balconies and internet access.
The tropical lagoon style pool is refreshing and inviting and for a workout you can visit their fully equipped gym.
From $135.00 per night.
53-57 The Esplanade
The Tradewinds Esplanade Hotel Cairns is right across from the Cairns waterfront with unobstructed Coral Sea views.
This is one of the more established hotels on The Cairns Esplanade and is really popular with both locals and travellers.
It's only a few minutes walk to the main part of "the Nard", Cairns Lagoon and the city centre. It's convenient to everything, but in a quieter location.
All rooms open out onto a private balcony which overlooks the gorgeous tropical pool and gardens with views to the Coral Sea.
Beds are so comfy, they offer brand new ones for sale online!
The restaurant offers sumptuous meals or you can choose to dine al fresco beside the pool.
From $122.00 per night.
137 The Esplanade
Right across the road from Muddy's playground, this is a crisp white building that is perfect for tropical outdoor living.
One, two and three bedroom apartments, this is luxury at its best.
If you want Coral Sea views, go higher. But for something a little different, some of the apartments have the pool coming right up to your balcony!
These apartments are stunning.
It's further away from The Esplanade restaurant strip and the Cairns Marlin Marina but hey, the walk there is wonderful.
A little more expensive than other apartments around, but they're almost new and well worth the price.
I think this is Esplanade accommodation at it's best!
From $270.00 per night.
155 The Esplanade
This is an older style apartment building and the color is shocking, but once inside you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Everything has been tastefully redecorated and the Coral Sea views are pretty amazing.
It's at the quieter end of The Esplanade, so you'd be best to stay there if you have a car. But, it's only about a 15min. walk along promenade and that in itself is magnificent.
You can see some stunning sunrises from your apartment window, or just stroll over the road to the parkland and take some pics.
The Managers here are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.
From $139.00 per night.
