Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort - Queensland

Discover A Picture-Perfect Paradise In Sanctuary Cove

As the first InterContinental Resort to land in Australia, InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort reflects the grand, graceful architecture of a classic Queensland estate, nestled within the beautiful surrounds of Sanctuary Cove.

Boasting an elegant and sophisticated design, the recently refurbished Great House welcomes you with a dramatic stained glass window and grand staircase into the Resort. Down the Fountain Terrace stairs and surrounded by the Resort's 4.2 hectares of lush landscaping, a show-stopping beach lagoon stretches out before you. Recapture the essence of resort relaxation within your choice of InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort's 251 recently refurbished rooms and premium suites, each inspired by the 4.2 hectare of tropical garden that surrounds three accommodation wings - Marina View, Garden View and Lagoon View. Before discovering tranquil moments spent lounging beneath swaying palm trees, plunging into the resort's iconic one-acre Lagoon Beach Pool, or passing by native families of grazing kangaroos.
