Orpheus Island is currently undergoing an exciting transformation
Orpheus is under new ownership and considerable improvements
are currently being made to the accommodation and amenities on the island.
The resort will re-open at the beginning of October 2011 with a selection of new Beachfront Villas that have two bedrooms and a lounge, making them ideal for families or friends who wish to travel together. A rear boardwalk that overlooks a stunning new lagoon will connect these villas. There are also three new luxury eco-tents located on the island, which would suit those wanting to experience the natural
surroundings without compromising on comfort.
One of the first thing you will notice when arriving at Orpheus is the newly constructed 26 metre x 13 metre infinity pool overlooking the private front beach where you can enjoy a refreshing dip or a drink at the outdoor bar. The new Resort Managers at Orpheus, Kylie and Rob, are qualified marine biologists and experienced divers, so will happily escort you to the best snorkelling, diving and fishing spots that the reef has to offer.
Finally, we are committed to sustainability and are focussing on providing local, seasonal and organic produce where possible, whilst also establishing a large vegetable garden on site. They are building a water tank with an 800,000-litre capacity, installing solar hot water and stocking the gift shop and rooms with organic, fair trade and local products.
Whether you are a returning guest or visiting Orpheus for the first time, we guarantee you will have an unforgettable stay.
