Royal Palm Villas is perfectly located for self-drive guests or those without a vehicle. There’s a range of restaurants, cafes and convenience stores all within easy walking and driving distance of the property. Cairns has been popular as a tourist destination for over 100 years, with visitors from around the country and the world flocking to our two natural attractions. The world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforests. These can be explored on a variety of tours, visiting varying locations and destinations.

You can explore the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, on a cruise, sail, snorkel or dive trip. Visit the lush World Heritage rainforests of the tropics, enjoy a day sightseeing the magnificent Atherton Tableland where waterfalls, lakes and rivers abound, or travel from Cairns into the interior to the great Outback.

At Royal Palm Villas we have our favourite locations, tours and experiences. We are happy to share our stories and knowledge with guests and book tours, for your convenience. Experience the untouched wilderness of the Frankland Island group. Take a cruise along the Mulgrave River then discover Normanby Island, part coral cay, part continental island. The pristine waters are a haven for coral and sea-life making it ideal for snorkelling and diving.

For the rainforests, there are many options. Take a day tour, which travels the coast road to Port Douglas and then delves deep into the Daintree National Park. Or catch the Kuranda Scenic Railway and combine it with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, and Kuranda the Village in the Rainforest with its famous markets, for a great day out.

Cairns has something for everyone, and we know you will enjoy your visit to our tropical, port city.

What Our Guests Say

Extremely friendly and personal service. Very clean room and facilities. The bedding was very comfortable. The security is very good for the location.


Our room was on the ground floor, with good kitchen utilities. There is a washing and dryer machine in the room. A small garden with a round table and chairs which you can have your breakfast or read a book. Air conditioning was good. The owner took the trouble to explain about all the facilities including getting in and out of the premises. They also arrange an early morning taxi for us.


The old school hospitality from the hosts was awesome, they greeted us outside of office hours, let us know where to find shops and eateries in the area, took us through the apartment. We had a twin deluxe room on the ground floor which was spacious and clean with comfortable beds and suited our needs. These aren't the swankiest of apartments but great value for money.


I stayed here for 40 days, during which time I was doing shift work at the hospital. The management were very considerate of my need for quiet and privacy and always very pleasant and helpful. The level of hygiene is high and I particularly enjoyed the pool, which is pristine.


This is a great family hotel, our room is a generous size with kitchenette, it also has a washer and dryer, comfy bed, WiFi and Foxtel included. Staff lovely and very helpful and has an awesome pool which my 5yo daughter had a ball in. We will be back!!


The hosts are friendly, easy-going and flexible in terms of check-in and check-out. They give valuable and at the same time concise information about Cairns, and, most importantly, they're ready to help in an emergency situation (like in our case, with the taxi). We enjoyed our stay!
