There is only one word that truly encapsulates this drinking experience on Hamilton Island – heaven. Located at the Main Pool, you can dive in for a swim before ordering a Martini while you’re surrounded by the crisp pool water. Replicating a tropical garden, the Island Bar almost feels like a slice of Eden where you can frolic with family and friends from sunrise to sunset. Do your quickest freestyle stroke towards the bar that looks like a hut, to find friendly bartenders mixing your drinks. If you are looking to get that even tan, then rest your head beside the pool as you bask in the glory that is Hamilton Island. So, after you have had a few fruity alcoholic beverages close your eyes and listen to the sounds of paradise from the comfort of a deck chair.

The Tides Restaurant and Bar is one of the best kept secrets in the Peppers Resort. If you have had a big day out kayaking or exploring the island on your own personal adventure, sit back and relax at the Peppers resort pool during the warm nights while feeling the breeze. The magic really happens at night when the sun begins to set and the sky becomes a swirl of orange and red colours. Open to the public, you don’t have to be staying at Peppers to enjoy this spectacular pool with a view across the island. Have your mind blown as you lie on your back at the deck or swim in the water with a Martini chatting away with friends.
