The Sanctuary Port Douglas

The Sanctuary Port Douglas is an exclusive holiday house located on the hillside with an outlook to Port Douglas and the Coral Sea.


Spectacular – is the only word to describe THE SANCTUARY Port Douglas.  Lazing in the large horizon edge pool overlooking cane fields, Port Douglas and the Coral Sea beyond it’s easy to leave the world behind.  Nestled in the tranquillity of the surrounding rainforest yet only a few minutes drive to Macrossan Street shops and restaurants we were amazed by the feeling of calm and serenity in this grand tropical retreat.  Ocean view sunset cocktails lounging on the enormous balcony will remain etched in our memory.  As good as it gets in Port Douglas.  Leigh Ratcliffe
