About this listing
Manta Ray is situated at Newell Beach, a beautiful white sand tropical beach. The guest accommodation is located in a separate pavilion on the other side of the large salt water pool and comprises 2 bedrooms, each with QS beds, fan, air-conditioning, bar fridge. Rates includes a tropical breakfast.
The B & B is set within a tropical garden compound and is a 2 minute walk to the beach. A daybed over the pool offers an opportunity to relax by the pool and enjoy tropical breezes. The QS beds have mosquito netting and rooms are furnished in a Bali style. Perfect for honeymooning couples.
Please note that if you are wishing to accommodate more than 2 people, you will need to book 2 rooms and we offer a special discount of 10% when booking 2 rooms.
Although we have 2 rooms we only let both for a family/group booking as we do not expect couples who do not know each other to share the bathroom. So if you are just a couple, you would have a private bathroom.
Guests have access to the large salt water pool and use of the tropical gardens. Garden lounges are available for relaxing. Wi-Fi is available.
Interaction with Guests
Breakfast is a good time for Anne and Fernando to share their knowledge of the local area. Brochures on the many and varied local attractions are available and a tour booking service is provided.
Manta Ray is well located for trips to the Reef and Rainforest and also the Tablelands.
Nearby attractions include a Crocodile Adventure park and crocodile spotting tours, Wildlife and bird sanctuary, reef fishing and sailing. Mossman Gorge rainforest, indigenous art gallery and guided tours. Coffee plantations, tropical fruit wineries, Golf courses, bird and wildlife spotting tours etc,
We recommend you hire a car from the airport as transport to and from the airport is expensive and does not service Newell Beach.
Other Things to Note
We have two bedrooms available, suitable for group or family bookings. When booking two rooms we offer a discount of 10% on the per room/day rate.
Lovely peaceful stay. Friendly Hosts. Delicious breaky. Little Bali in Ozi
Hi Joern and thank you for your review. Hope you enjoyed your Cape Trib stay and are still enjoying Thala. Hopefully you will visit us again in the not too distant future. And remember if you do decide to elope, then it would be my honour to marry you both. Cheers Anne and Fernando
Impressive Balinese themed accommodation with great attention to detail. We would have loved to have spent more time on the day bed overlooking the pool, however the B & B was in a central location and we chose to squeeze as much into our 7 day stay as possible - exploring Mossman Gorge, Port Douglas, Atherton Tablelands and the Daintree/Cape Tribulation. Our wonderful hosts were like concerned parents, wondering if we would ever come home or if we were lost! Truly caring people.
We challenge you to finish the exquisite local fruit platter. We did, once - but had to forgo the most amazing Pancakes, omelettes and Croissants to do so.
The B & B is only a short walk to the beach. We went for early morning walks everyday. Very peaceful, quite private.
We could not have asked for anything more from our wonderful hosts, Anne & Fernando - they were so welcoming and friendly.
This was a serene location, near the beach, but being July we did not swim although the weather was short sleeve quality . The architecture and fit up of the independent "guest house"
on one side of the pool meant a short promenade to the patio for a relaxed lengthy marvellous breakfast.
Anna et Fernando nous ont merveilleusement reçus. D'humeur chaleureuse tout au long de notre séjour, ils ont été de très bon conseils pour le choix des restaurants et activités de la région. Le petit déjeuner était excellent et la chambre encore plus ravissante que sur les photos.
Je conseille ce logement a tous les voyageurs visitant le QLD!
A lovely B&B: beautiful setting, lovely room and wonderful breakfasts each day. Anne and Fernando were fantastic hosts, with lots of very helpful advice on what to see and do. We can highly recommend this one!
After a very adventurous treck we went at Mentaray, a very peacefull place with a high level of comfort. We really enjoyed the decoration and the pool ! Anne and Fernando was in holidays at this moment but Caroline and Werner welcomed us and did the best breakfast we had in Australia ! Fruits from their garden, very good home made muffins and banana cakes! We really enjoyed it and their very interesting conversation too ! thank you for this moment, and I highly recommand your place.
This is a beautiful place. A real haven in North Queensland.
Thank you James, we were sorry not to have been at home to greet you, but obviously Caroline and Werner were great hosts in our stead. Maybe some time in the future you will visit again and we will have the opportunity to meet.
Kind Regards Anne and Fernando.
