Inside Reefsuites Australia’s first and only underwater hotel on the Great Barrier Reef

A student has shared a glimpse inside Australia’s first and only underwater hotel suite in a video guaranteed to make you green with envy.

Jackie Paige, 21, posted a TikTok video of her friend exploring a room in Reefsuites, a pontoon boat moored 40 kilometres from Airlie Beach off the coast of Far North Queensland.

The boat offers guests the chance to sleep beneath the waves where they’ll be treated to a truly unique, once in a lifetime view of the Great Barrier Reef.

Descriptions on the hotel website promise a ‘front row seat’ to the dazzling world of the Pacific Ocean and an ‘intimate experience’ that will stay with you forever.

Each room below deck has a queen sized bed and ensuite bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink.

But the main draw card is an enormous window stretching the length of one wall that captures a magnificent view of the ‘deep blue’.

Above deck, guests are treated to tours of the Great Barrier Reef and all-inclusive meals – breakfast, morning and afternoon teas, lunch and dinner – for the duration of their stay.

Prices start from $1,199 per person for a single room and $799 per person sharing for a double. 

Ms Paige’s video, which has racked up 12,800 ‘likes’ and almost 1,400 shares since it was uploaded on January 8, has drawn dozens of stunned responses.

‘So expensive, but so amazing,’ one woman replied.

‘Surely we have to stay here just one time,’ a second wrote while tagging her friend.

‘How’s that for a sea view,’ said a third, while a fourth added: ‘My dream.’

A project manager who oversaw the construction of the underwater suite replied to the video, saying it had cost an eye-watering $10million (AUD) to complete.

But others were less impressed with the idea of sleeping ‘under the sea’.

‘$1,600 so I can stay up all night thinking about the (highly unrealistic) possibility of a shark breaking the window and attacking me,’ one viewer wrote.

‘All that money and they couldn’t even put windows and a bath in the bathroom,’ added another.
