This luxury hut rental in Queensland can accommodate four guests and features an open floor plan. The hut is made of driftwood and located right on the beach at a slight distance from the glamping property's main building. There is a boardwalk that leads glampers to the open shower and bathroom nestled into a coconut forest. In addition, there is a large canvas shutter that opens up the accommodation to the beach, where glampers will find a private fire pit.

This is an all-inclusive glamping site, and all meals, adventures, and activities are included in the daily rate.

The organic meals' ingredients include fresh seafood caught daily, and herbs, fruits, and vegetables that are gathered from the orchard. Breakfast is typically fresh fruit, homemade muesli with fresh, toasted coconut, and eggs from free range eggs. Lunch depends on the catch of the day, which can include dishes like steamed oysters with sliced ginger and lemongrass or a chilled squid salad with arugula and lime juice, chili powder, and coriander. Other options include tropical crayfish thermidor, battered barramundi, fresh grilled coral trout, and red emperor steamed with fresh herbs, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic. Dinner is constantly changing but always includes an appetizer, a main plate, two sides (typically vegetables), and a dessert.
