Wake up in a paradise!  Shambhala was created after a guest stayed with Couple Retreats and longed to have his own luxe ‘Executive Retreat’.  The owners sought out the best tropical architect in the north and this beautiful Chris Van Dyke creation was welcomed in to the Couple 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.

Shambhala should definitely be on the short list for your luxury escape when you are considering your Daintree and Port Douglas holiday accommodation.  Your Queensland holiday starts here!
