Holidays are all about kicking back and relaxing. Whether your idea of chilling out is to lay by the pool with a book, or you prefer to build up a sweat with a hardcore hike, you’ll find everything you’re looking for in the Whitsundays. 

While we want you to soak up all the holiday vibes, we also want you to feel like you’re chilling out in your “home away from home”. It’s our goal to make every guest feel comfortable and safe during their stay because we truly believe that’s when the best holiday memories are made. 

For us, that all starts with our self-contained apartments. These ultra-stylish and seriously welcoming spaces are ideal for singles, couples or the entire family. To help make your decision a little easier, the WAHI team has put together our top reasons why a self-contained apartment will tick all of your boxes.



1. Self-contained apartments give you space and freedom

All our rooms are self-contained, one-bedroom apartments that sleep up to five people. The beauty of these spaces is that they come with all their own amenities, including a spacious dual-access bathroom, open plan dining and lounge area, and balcony dining that overlooks picturesque Catseye Beach. 

Our guests love getting out to explore all of the attractions and activities around the island, but sometimes it’s nice to kick back in your own private space too. Recover from your day of beachgoing with an afternoon nap, catch up on your favourite TV show or take in the sights right from your balcony. It's like being at home, except swap out your never ending to-do list for one of the most incredible views on earth!



2. Cooking is made easy

The Whitsundays is home to more world-class dining venues than you can imagine, but after a long day of adventuring, sometimes it’s nice to eat in. A self-contained apartment gives you the flexibility to buy your groceries from the local IGA and whip up a feast for yourself or the whole family. This is the perfect solution for fussy kids, tired bodies or for anyone looking for a quiet night in! 

If you want a break from the kitchen, why not order some takeaway? Pick between everything from fresh seafood to mouth-watering pizza and more, you’re spoilt for choice! BONUS: No one will know if you eat dinner in your pyjamas!



3. Keep costs down

Self-contained apartments are an incredibly affordable way to have a luxurious and seriously memorable getaway in the best location without the hefty price tag. You can cut down the number of times you open your wallet by bringing your own activities to keep the kids busy during downtime or making the most of home comforts such as movies, board games and music. 

If you’re travelling in a bigger group, self-contained apartments are also ideal for bringing everyone together. Pick up a bottle of your favourite bubbles from the nearby bottle shop and make a toast to each other from the comfort of your private balcony. It’s never been easier—or more affordable—to have a great holiday with your loved ones.


With winter well and truly here, it’s never been a better time to start thinking about your mid-year getaway with the family! WAHI has plenty of special offers at the moment to help you make the most of your time away. We can’t wait to welcome you to our island paradise!
