Reefsleep is a top place

THE Whitsundays' iconic floating hotel, Reefsleep, has been named as one of the world's top 10 floating hotels.

Askmen.com's popular top 10 page recently featured the Top 10 Floating Hotels in the World, with Reefsleep finishing strongly at number two.

Fantasea's Reefsleep has already won awards as Queensland's and the Whitsundays' most unique accommodation and was a finalist in the same category at this year's Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.

Askmen.com, one of the USA's leading websites, with over 10 million individual visitors each month, ranked Reefsleep highly against landmark floating hotels like the Lagoon Resort and Spa in Bora Bora and Dubai's Floating and Rotating Hotel Tower.

Owned and operated by Fantasea Adventure Cruising, the Reefsleep experience is an overnight stay on the Great Barrier Reef with exclusive accommodation for up to six people.

About 51 nautical miles from the mainland, this is the only hotel in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and features private rooms with modern facilities.

A Reefsleep stay includes full breakfast, buffet lunches, personalised service, sunset drinks, alfresco dinner, a scuba dive or guided snorkelling safari, and full use of Reefworld facilities, including underwater observatory, semi-submersible rides and snorkelling equipment.
