Elysian Retreat, Whitsundays, is a secluded island sanctuary surrounded by rainforest and the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef


Elysian is a boutique eco-retreat on Long Island, part of Queensland's beautiful Whitsunday Islands in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Accessible by helicopter and with a maximum of only twenty guests on the island at any one time, Elysian is ideal for those seeking an eco-friendly private island escape. You'll enjoy an all-inclusive, truly tailored experience from personalised food and spa menus to dedicated staff on hand day and night. There are opportunities to immerse yourself in nature from the reef to the rainforest, with walking trails, snorkelling, scuba diving and an array of water sports to choose from. If you're ready to unwind, we recommend a swing in one of the beachside hammocks or a dip in the resort's magnesium swimming pool.
