At Black tomato, we are the masters (humbly) of discovering the alternative ways to travel in style, and now in multi-award winning Peppers Pier Resort, we’ve unearthed another gem for a picture-perfect place to de-stress. Offering a luxurious and relaxed alternative amongst the tourist hotbed of South Queensland, it is perfectly situated in the calm and beautiful Hervey Bay for whale watching cruises, sampling Queensland’s delicious food and wine, or simply sun worshiping on the beach.
Where is this stretch of quiet and unspoilt South Queensland coast you ask? Being only ten minutes from Fraser Coast airport and two hours north of the sunshine coast makes this mecca of calm one of the easiest ‘off the tourist trail’ hotels to getaway to. Situated on the Hervey Bay waterfront, the hotel rooms and restaurant treat you to spectacular views over the beach and the historic Urangan Pier.
The 129 apartment-style rooms are decked out with charming rustic stone floors and timber furnishing to match the location’s natural beauty. The spacious rooms are complemented by spa baths and balconies with incredible views over Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. The luxury Spa Botanica , two lagoon pools and health club top off the feeling of indulgent relaxation on offer here.
Why we like it
The whole atmosphere at this hotel gently whispers ‘chilled relaxation haven’; from the location, to the rooms, to the relaxed and casual dining experience at the onsite Bayswater Bistro and Bar. Peppers Pier Resort is a refreshing alternative to base your South Queensland adventure, away from the stressful tourist hub of the sunshine coast.
