Nestled in heart of the Whitsundays is a piece of paradise. An eco-retreat which offers a place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with nature in the most luxurious, yet, laid back and eco-minded way possible
Welcome to Elysian
The first 100 per cent solar-powered resort on the Great Barrier Reef, Elysian Retreat occupies a secluded three-hectare patch of Long Island, nestled between rainforest and the reef.
Elysian Retreat switched over to 100% solar power on the 16th of April 2019, becoming the first 100% solar-powered island resort on the Great Barrier Reef.
The switch to solar power saves an estimated 39,420 litres of diesel from being burnt per year plus the additional fuel it would have used to transport the 39,420 litres of diesel to the island via barge. The accomplishment of an eco-luxe resort run purely on battery and solar power with clean, quiet, sustainable energy proves that luxuries need not be sacrificed in the search for sustainability.Shop Here
