Alkira Resort House, an off-grid architectural icon set in a World Heritage-listed paradise
Alkira Resort House is a quintessential sanctuary of tranquillity and tropical splendour where the UNESCO World Heritage-listed wonders of the world, the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef converge. An almost 30-hectare paradise with 600 metres of white-sand beach is the pristine setting for one of Australia's most iconic and unduplicatable private residences.
In harmony with nature, the award-winning Alkira Resort House exemplifies off-grid luxury and is a model for carbon-neutral, sustainable living. Conceived by visionary architect Charles Wright, the boundaries between the interiors and outdoors dissolve across over 1,000 square metres of living spaces. Fully furnished and equipped to comfortably accommodate 12 overnight guests, the six cantilevered wings are suspended over an engineered lake ecosystem then unified by a show-piece swimming pool gloriously illuminated at dusk. The interiors with easy-care polished concrete floors throughout are complemented by cascading waterfalls and a landscaped courtyard creating an oasis conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.
Alkira celebrates a tropical open-air lifestyle over two living levels including a sleek commercial-grade kitchen, four lounge areas, and two dining areas. There are six bedroom suites - each air-conditioned with a marble-clad bathroom, custom wardrobes, and a private covered balcony. Timber-clad bedroom walls create a cosy warmth, while the connecting lakefront balconies are an idyllic place to kick back and enjoy the quietness. Select features of the residence are an executive office, a 2,400-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, a state-of-the-art gym, and a boardwalk to the private beach. Separately, Mango House, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom manager's residence, is sited about 500 metres from the primary residence and accessed by a separate driveway.
It is a 2.5-hour scenic drive from Cairns Airport to Alkira, or 30 minutes by helicopter to the residence's private helipad. The Cape Tribulation township is five minutes away, where you can call in for coffee or casual dining. Cape Tribulation is a favoured departure point for Great Barrier Reef cruises and dive trips to the Lower Isles and Daintree National Park is only two kilometres away.
