“We were lucky enough to get married at the Coral Sea Resort in April. It truly is the most beautiful location! Sharon and Kirby were a great help in the lead up and made everything so easy. We live on the Gold Coast so really appreciated how quick every email was answered and the whole planning process was totally stress free.
Kirby, I cannot thank you enough for making sure our day was perfect! You did such an amazing job, it was everything I had hoped for. All of our guests commented on how well they were looked after during the reception, and the quality of food served was outstanding! More than one guest mentioned that it was the best service and food that they had ever received at a wedding. We would not change a thing and honestly loved every tiny detail.
We will see you next year for our first wedding anniversary xxx Renee & Matt”
“We cannot recommend Coral Sea Resort enough for the amazing job they did hosting our wedding on the 30th of September last year! From the planning process to our big day, Sharon (our amazing coordinator/planner) went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and it was a very stress free process. Also, a huge thanks to Jess who managed it all on the day. Jess was absolutely lovely and very professional and made everything run super smoothly. From the moment we first saw the beautiful venues they had to offer, we fell in love with the place and knew that was where we would get married. All of our guests commented on the stunning location as well. We couldn’t be happier and will definitely be coming back to celebrate our anniversaries in the future! Also, we will definitely be recommending Coral Sea resort to everyone we know. Thanks so so so much for making our big day so special and perfect!!”
“We were married at Coral Sea Resort last month and it was perfect! We eloped, so it was only the two of us and we planned every detail from our home in the U.S. I know it was a risk to plan a wedding without seeing the venue or meeting with the staff in person, but the entire day was well executed and met all of my expectations. Sharon and Bethany were such a pleasure to work with and every staff member we encountered at CSR was equally as helpful and welcoming. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Coral Sea Resort to any bride looking for a beautiful venue with a talented staff, they make wedding planning seem effortless!
Sharon wasn’t able to be onsite during on our wedding day (it was a Tuesday) due to a planned business event, she let me know ahead of time that Bethany would be onsite instead. Bethany didn’t miss a beat! She was so sweet and a calming presence on our wedding day and made sure the day ran smoothly. Like a typical bride, I was concerned with the weather forecast and Bethany assured me we WOULD get us married on that lawn. She suggested we would wait out any rain if need be. We were fortunate and had sunny skies so we started right on time, but I loved that she was flexible. I know that a big piece of this is that we didn’t have wedding guests to account for, but it was so nice that we didn’t need to make that decision early in the day as we know the weather can change quickly in a tropical location. Also, if needed, we could have held the ceremony on the jetty which is just as beautiful. We had a private dinner in the gazebo and ordered off the nightly dinner menu, the food was delicious! Thanks again to Sharon, Bethany and the talented team at Coral Sea! We hope to return to Australia one day, and we will be sure to come back to Airlie Beach.”
“After our wedding at Daydream Island was picked up by a cyclone and flung out into the ocean (metaphorically and almost literally) we had a week and a half to organize a whole new wedding.
Enter Coral Sea resort and the inestimable Sharon. As soon as phone lines went back up, the flurry of work commenced and before we knew it, we were ready to go. She gave us great referrals for hair and makeup, sorted accommodation for the 8 of us involved in the elopement, and was super understanding even though half of the town had been picked up and tossed around like a puppy in a toddler’s hands.
But what we weren’t prepared for was how wonderful all the staff were at every turn. Sharon and the staff were so accommodating in every way and when weather meant we had to change the plan, had a backup solution ready to go. In the end, we had the best wedding of our lives (the second for both of us so we have a basis of comparison!) and a truly wonderful day that went exactly as we had hoped.
Do yourself a favor. Get married at Coral Sea and ask for- no, DEMAND- Sharon.”
“My husband Braden and I would like to thank Sharon for all of her fabulous help and impeccable service in the preparation and execution of our elopement in September 2016. Everything went off without a glitch and if there were any issues, I did not know about them as Sharon had everything covered. Cannot wait to return for our anniversary.”
“Ross and I would like to say a massive Thankyou to Sharon and Beth, our wedding at the start of this month ran so smoothly and everything went perfectly. Sharon is absolutely beautiful and so easy to deal with! Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou! We look forward to coming back xxx”
“Ummm WOW!!! The staff at Coral Sea Resort are absolutely outstanding. They have made our wedding day so gorgeous and carefree! You guys are amazing and we couldnt have imagined a more perfect day!! At reception, Rodney and Karen were beautiful and perfect hosts. No problem was too great or too small. I have never come across such wonderful customer service.
In functions, Sharon, Natalia, and the girls and guys that looked after us all day and night, you were incredible! You could not be faulted and made it such a day/night to remember. Sharon… words can not express my gratitude and appreciation. We will never forget you xxxxx
See you next year for our 1st anniversary!!
Love, Mr and Mrs Earls”
“We would like to thank Lauren & Kaz for all their help at our Wedding. They were great!”
“We had the best time. The day exceeded our expectations. The food was fantastic, everyone commented on the quality and quantity. The services of Lauren and Natalie made the day stress free and enjoyable. They made the lead up to the wedding quite simple for me to arrange also. We are very grateful”
“I joined facebook just so I could write on the walls of people who made our Wedding Day on November 3rd 2014. Thank you for the most awesome day Coral Sea!! Lauren was amazing with all the emails, information and running of the day. Your staff are beyond superstars! They were so friendly, fun and helpful. We have not stopped talking about how great of a time we had. Not only on the Wedding Day but the whole 10 days we were there. So many fantastic memories now. Thank you so much!! ”
“Hi Lauren, I just wanted to say a very big Thank You again for everything. I loved everything about my wedding day and everything ran so smoothly and without any set backs. I didn’t really know how it was all going to come together, but it was so much better than I expected. Thank you so much for looking after us and making sure our day was perfect. We are so happy we chose Coral Sea”
” Thank you so much for your help with coordinating our wedding. Very happy with the service from Natalie. She was Amazing. She couldn’t do enough for us. She was there from start to end and she made us feel relaxed the whole day. Also Mikey was awesome. He made sure that the Bridal Party & all of our guests had full drinks. He was very friendly”
“We have just got back from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say thank-you very much for all your help with the wedding. Everything turned out perfectly and we were thrilled with the excellent service we received throughout the night. Cannot wait to receive the photo’s from Norina, we are more than happy to share a few if you would like. Thanks again and we will definitely be booking our 1 year anniversary at Coral Sea Resort. Kind Regards, Danielle and Joshua”

So many guests have commented that the wedding was just brilliant n loved it. I can’t thank the staff enough for our happy n enjoyable stay.”
“We stayed in a Coral Sea Spa Suite. And we loved EVERYTHING about it. Amazing view. Private hot tub (big enough for two people) on the veranda. Stylish yet fun nautical décor. Being able to open the bi-fold doors and enjoy an alfresco shower in the bathroom was also great. And best of all the room had one of the most comfortable beds we have EVER slept in! So comfortable that we took a photo of the tag so we can try and source one now that we’re home! We ate downstairs at Clippers Restaurant a few times and always had a good experience. Great food, great ambience by the pool. Nice cocktails. Tasty pancakes at breakfast. Dessert platter was a hit. Definitely book the gazebo for a private dinner if you can – it was a great experience, and very pretty with all the fairy lights. Friendly staff. We enjoyed being able to say hello to the resort cat too because it reminded us of our pets at home. Easy walk to Airlie Beach main strip. Would stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.”
“We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all your hard work and the work of your team! Our entire experience was amazing! Our day was completely seamless and perfect, we couldn’t have hoped for a higher level of service and professionalism from your entire team! The food was amazing, the staff were amazing and you were AMAZING!! You were magically there every time I needed something and pretty much had what I needed already in your hands before I even asked (quite the talent ). We had an absolutely fantastic day and our guests haven’t stopped raving! AND although you run weddings all the time you made us feel like our day being perfect was really important to you and for that we are very grateful! – So thank you, thank you thank you!”
“Thank you so much for helping keep our ceremony running smoothly. It was amazing and the venue absolutely PERFECT!! We appreciate all the hard work you put in.
Everyone loved it and there were A LOT that said they would definitely book a holiday at Coral Sea Resort.
Thanks again. We will be recommending Coral Sea Resort to everyone that’s thinking of heading that way.”
“Thank you so much for everything you organised and all your support for our wedding, it was absolutely perfect and we had the most amazing time, the resort was breathtaking, we couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful place to stay in the Whitsundays.

“The efforts of ALL of the Resort staff on the morning of my wedding after the cyclone hit was outstanding!
