“Wanggulay, its Balinese for "Heaven"”
Reviewed 23 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

When you are stressed at work and you drift away daydreaming about a holiday, Wanggulay is probably the imagine you have in your head. The accommodation is picturesque. Sitting nicely within the rain forest canopy. Its like a giant tree house for adults, with all the modern luxuries you would expect from a 5 star resort. Wanggulay is a fantastic place for a family holiday as everything you want for yourself and the kids can be found at the accommodation and its all free!
Brett and Bet and their team have great customer services skills. Any issues are resolved immediately and follow-up the next day to ensure continuity.
My only complaint is that we couldn't stay for longer as my family could have easily stayed another week there.
We will definitely be back here next time we are in Cairns.

Thank you!

One or our guests referred to Wanggulay as
Heaven on a stick!
thanks for the comments that we have "all the modern luxuries you would expect from a 5-star resort." We modelled ourselves on the beautiful Four Season Resorts of Bali and hence the name and the Asian fusion theme throughout, including the infinity edge pool!
We take pride in immediately following up. We have been welcoming guests to our luxury retreats for 14 years, so we know what makes that stay so special!
We look forward to welcoming you back
all the best

“Beautiful house, fabulous area.”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in Wanggulay Bali for a week in August. It was wonderful. We were a family of 10, with children ranging from 10 up to teenagers, 5 of us are adults. The house did not at any time feel cramped or overcrowded. It is beautifully decorated and very clean. We really enjoyed the spa pool and deck area and it was lovely to be able to sit together as a family and eat outside. There is plenty to do in the area and the downloadable guide was very useful as was Brett's recommendation for diving with silver sonic at Port Douglas. I can fully recommend staying here and would not hesitate to come back if I had the opportunity.

Thanks Jackie,
It was an honour having you and your family stay with us. We love the Silversonic trip to Port Douglas and now because we have sent so many guests out we can reserve places for our guests without a deposit!!
the spa pool and outdoor dining are great and we also hosted the Australian swim team, so we know they loved the pool and relaxing beside it as well!
we look forward to welcoming you back
kind regards

“Wish we had stayed longer”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here as a couple (yep we had the whole place to ourselves) and it was wonderful! we relaxed on the balcony surrounded by trees - it was so private, quiet and peaceful and the temperature and climate were perfect (we were there in July). The pool was fantastic and we loved playing table tennis and going for walks to explore the local area. The owners were so lovely and even ordered in groceries for us so we had snacks waiting when we arrived. This place looks exactly like the photos and it is very clean and tidy. Definitely check out the local restaurants/cafes and activities recommended in the guidebook. We will be back and wish we had stayed longer! Highly recommend.

Hi Nad

Thank you for teh review.

We now offer a free online shopping service and tour booking at no charge, so our guests can save time and holiday. We have had a guest tell us that they did not want to leave, ironically we had a cancellation and they stayed for another week, and before they left after the econd week they asked if they could extend their stay further. Alas cancellations are rare and we have welcomed them back many times.
We would love to welcome you back!

Have a great day

Hi Jaevon

Thank you very much for coming back to stay with us again.

We love the peace and tranquility of the rainforest yet being so close to so many great restaurants, attractions and being able to walk from the front door to a waterfall in the National park in just over 10 minutes

Have a great day, we look forward to welcoming you back again.

“Wonderful accomodation with lovely "Balinese" decor”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The promotional ad lived up to our experience. I liked the "Balinese" theme. Large bedrooms rooms for three couples, upstairs and downstairs, good balconies, kitchen very good with all mod cons, wonderful heated pool and spa, all amenities games, Apple TV etc Location superb amongst the rainforest and above the River. very costly but then...
Minor issues only in that elderly gentleman slipped in the pool, so can have a handrail installed; small repairs to be done.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your review. We have undertaken those small repairs and had teh pool inspected and attended to.

Wanggulay is spacious with those large bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen amenities and games. It won't surprise you to know that we regularly host large groups. The most recent wa photography group from the USA and the National Swim team. There is room for all with those 2 22 metre balconies and undercover areas. One our favourite things at the house is reading on the daybeds, playing table tennis and relaxing in the hot tub and the pool and quality coffee available when you want it!

We would love to welcome you again sometime

kind regards
