Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort 4 stars

Hotel in Cairns

The Novotel Oasis is a 4.5 star resort featuring a gorgeous lagoon pool, complete with a sandy beach, children's pool and a swim-up bar. I liked being able to purchase tours for each day of my stay at the hotel. Like other staff, the tour staff were most helpful. I was able to get a towel for the beach. In general the staff created a very relaxing stay.
