Guest and Media Reviews

Sejala very much appreciates the wonderful support of our past guests and thanks everyone for their lovely comments, letters and helpful observations!  We have had an adventurous few years with the eye of two of the biggest category 5 cyclones recorded crossing the coastline at Sejala – amazingly the huts and house escaped with minor damage and the garden and foreshore is again as beautiful and luxuriant as ever.   We hope the real experiences of our guests expressed below will entice new visitors to Sejala and perhaps remind our past guests to stay with us again.

We would love to welcome you to Sejala very soon.

“Wir durften eine wundervolle Nacht in der gemütlichen Hütte direkt am Strand verbringen. So nah am Strand haben wir noch nie übernachtet, man konnte das Wasser von der Veranda sehen. Janet hatte alles bereit gelegt, was man sich für einen relaxten Aufenthalt wünschen kann. Sogar eine spätere Abreise, damit wir die Ruhe-Oase länger genießen können, war kein Problem. Vielen Dank für Entspannung pur.”

“Sejala exceeded our expectations – a tranquil private oasis with exquisite appointments and immaculate expansive gardens and friendly helpful hosts. Despite all the attractions of Mission Beach we were happiest kicking back in our villa and making the most of our beautiful surrounds. Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone seeking a uniquely private and beautiful oasis in a very special part of the world. 10 out of 10!”

“The Sejala huts were simply, elegantly and perfectly fitted out. The attention to the small details made our stay particularly pleasant – quality sheets, beach towels and chairs, coffee maker, mosquito coils, candle lantern, toiletries, hammock and so on. Whilst the huts overlook the beach and beachside walking track, they still feel very private. The fact that we could spend most of the day at our hut and still feel on holiday and not feel cooped up (not otherwise possible at any resort) made it well worth the price.”

“Sejala huts are ALL that Janet has described and so much more! My partner was unable to attend at the last minute, so a dear friend joined me instead. Janet organised a day bed to be arranged for her, which was ever so kind and thoughtful. Janet has put so much consideration into the decor, set-up and amenities of these huts and it shows from the moment you arrive. We stayed in ‘Waves’ and needed for nothing. The location was divine and it was safe, secure and serene. In Janet’s absence, David and Maureen look after the property and were just lovely. We stayed for 5 nights/6 days and it was bliss. An easy 5-10min walk along the path to town and only a minute to the beach from our hut’s deck. Sejala exceeded all of our expectations. The hut was a peaceful sanctuary that is suitable for anyone; whether travelling solo, with friends or with a partner. The photos don’t do it justice. Thank you Janet, I can’t wait to return (& bring Oliver next time)!”

“We had the most beautiful stay in Mission Beach. The hut was so cosy and well organized. The location was seconds away from the beach. It was super clean with lots of towels and beautiful l’Occitane products. We stayed in the Coral hut which was facing a little courtyard with beautiful vegetation around and adjacent to the swimming pool. All and all a very pleasant experience. We would love to come back.”

“Damn near perfect!”

Just coming to the end of our third annual holiday in Mission Beach staying at Sejala Beach Huts right on the beach front. This place is amazing, secluded, private and only a short walk down the beach for restaurants …


“What can I say but Paradise”

My wife fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived … it was exactly what we were looking for – a secluded paradise.  We stayed in Waves Hut and the accommodation was superb.

The pristine beach is literally about 10 yards away down a path through a coconut grove. We arrived there at about 2pm and there was hardly a footprint in the sand.


“Sejala Beach Huts”

… simple, breezy and perfectly positioned …  Simplicity is the key.  The surroundings are straight from paradise … coconut palms and lush tropical vegetation which almost hides the plunge pool.

“Soothing, secluded, and stunning”

I went here with the love of my life for a week and we had the most fantastic time. ….  Sejala was the PERFECT hideaway.

It felt like time had stopped for us in such a calm, stunning locale.  My boyfriend proposed here and we would love to go back someday.


“Gorgeous private beach hut”

Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped beach-hut.  The Mission Beach area was quieter than anticipated but this hut was without doubt one of the most lovely places that I have ever stayed.


“There’s a zen-like ambience to the town”
… throw open the doors to a sea breeze at Sejala Beach Huts.

“A dream come true – you can’t get more romantic than this!”

Staying at Sejala is having a dream come true. Your own hut on the beach and in the forest, a hammock on the veranda, an outdoor bathroom and all the luxury you can imagine. It is impossible to put the magic of this place into words – you simply cannot get more romantic than this. The price comes at a premium, but it is worth every penny – you’ll dream of this place for years to come. Stay here and slip out early to watch the sunrise over Mission Beach – you’ll tell your grandchildren of this in years to come. Definitely recommended!


“Truly a little piece of Paradise”

We stayed for 10 nights at Sejala in September, and it was a wonderful relaxing holiday.


“Paradise”

…  the sound of the rainforest behind you can throw a towny a bit, we found a tree frog in our sink on the first night! 

However once you get used to the surroundings it is absolute bliss, I cried when we left, you really get the feel of what it would be like to be a beach bum for a while!


“Romance is still available!”

The Sejala “Waves” cabin was so beautiful and just broadcast ‘Romance’! – a special place to honeymoon. People spend thousands of dollars a night to experience an environment like this … the Sejala Beach Units were a wonderful start to a lifetime together.


“Peaceful and quiet location, boutique styling”

We had two nights at Sejala and found the Waves beach hut to be excellent, with interior styling that was beautiful, and very comfortable for a couple.


“Paradise”

… the morning brought the true beauty out when we awoke early to a glorious sun rise over the beach. The last day here my boyfriend proposed and the setting could not have been more perfect.


“Mission Beach is a good spot to check into and chill out for a few days.”

The beach itself is lovely and long.   Sejala beach huts, near the village centre  …. within metres of the beach.

– Warm Welcome; Jim Mathews: The Road Ahead, January 2007


“Brilliant accommodation”

These beach huts are amazing. All are detached, beautifully built huts, with adjoining bathrooms.


“The essence of a quiet beachfront stay”

The Sejala Beach Huts on Mission Beach are lovely and very well situated.  ……separated from the beach proper by about twenty metres of low density rainforest foliage, allowing a sweet view of the beach and the Coral Sea from the hut’s deck: most tranqulizing. The location is very quiet and as non-commercialized as can be.


“Casual, Cool and Comfy”

Mission Beach is beautiful, mellow, cool and really laid back. I definitely would have to say the same for the Sejala Beach Huts.


“Laid back style at Sejala Beach House”

Enjoying an absolute beachfront setting under the coconut trees, the Sejala Beach House is a hidden gem in Mission Beach, two hours south of Cairns.   The beautiful old timber house captures the elegance and understated luxury of the tropics with breezy light filled rooms, shuttered doors and windows, lazy overhead fans, courtyards, ponds, beach chairs and hammocks.  Set a few metres from the main beach, Sejala is also only a four minute walk to the township of Mission Beach where you still find that old far north Queensland tropical charm and ambience.  The pavilion style sitting room opens onto either a terrace overlooking the Coral sea and the islands, or a private glass-tiled terrace pool and sunbathing area.
