Mobile Phone reception?
Elysian Eco Retreat prides itself in being the most secluded resort in the Whitsunday, our goal is to allow our guests to relax and make them forget to look at their phones.
We have limited mobile phone coverage, a downfalls in terms of connectivity.
The resort has Telstra mobile phone service, however there is no phone service for Vodafone and Optus. We are currently working on providing free wifi throughout the resort and should have this available from July 2019 onwards.
how do i get to Elysian?
We are happy to assist guests with booking helicopter transfers to Elysian. The helicopters fly from both Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport and Hamilton Airport. The cost does depend on the airport of choice, with Proserpine Airport being the cheaper option for the helicopter flights. The helicopters are however restricted by combined total weight and so the price will be dependent on which helicopter is required in terms of weight limitations for both body and luggage weight. Our Getting Here page does provide further information, however please feel free to email our friendly staff should you require any additional information.
Tell us more about the whales?
Our whale season runs from July through to October each year. The whales migrate north from July onwards and then start migrating south again from September onwards. They can be seen swimming past Elysian from time to time with their new born calves. The main type of whales we see are the Humpback Whales, ranging in length from 12–16 m (39–52 ft) and weighing around 25–30 metric tons.
Elysian Eco Retreat provides excellent service and food, with a humble, relaxed attitude.
Our small, intimate and dedicated team will always ensure our guests are our main priority and service is to the best of our ability. Our staff are 5 star trained, however our feel at Elysian is not that of a 5 star resort, but more of a boutique ‘barefoot eco’ retreat.
We pride ourselves on our sustainability, being 100% solar powered, and the fact that good service and sustainability can work hand in hand. Our wellness spa allows guests to take a step back and enjoy a complete eco-lux spa experience.
What star rating is Elysian?
Stinger season runs between November and April each year where stingers may be present in the water. We can provide guests with stinger suits to use during the stinger season. Our magnesium resort swimming pool is always a great backup for those wishing to bathe without a concern for stingers.
