Australia’s newest relaxed luxury accommodation, ZEN Beach Retreat, is making ripples in the travel market with discerning Australian and international travelers journeying to the undiscovered Southern Great Barrier Reef for bespoke, fully-hosted experiences.

Positioned on absolute beachfront in Bargara, on Bundaberg’s coastline, ZEN is less than an hour’s flight from Brisbane and is within easy access of two Iconic UNESCO World Heritage Listed wonders, the majestic Great Barrier Reef and spectacular Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island.

Hosts Shane and Pascaline Emms design tailor-made holidays featuring unique, private and fully-hosted experiences from the boutique retreat, which can accommodate up to twenty two guests across five residences.

Working around the concept of Unlocking Your Own Great Barrier Reef Secret, bespoke experiences include:

Shane Emms, owner of ZEN Beach Retreat, said ‘The foundation of the ZEN experience is the welcome we give to our guests.  Simplicity and authenticity underpins every customised holiday we create – we are a small team and we care about our guests.  We want to surprise them and wow them with our signature mix of elegance, warmth and authenticity.’

‘ZEN is more than just discovering a new destination in relaxed luxury and style; it’s all about those little breathtaking moments.  There are so many secrets that are yet to be discovered on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, and we seek to give our guests access to places and opportunities most people have never even heard of.’
