Bachelor In Paradise Australia has completely taken over my life, so naturally I’m trying to find any/all ways to incorporate it into my work days whenever I can.
Today’s stretch is to deep-dive into the resort the contestants are staying at. It looks pretty schmick so far, right? Like not 7-star luxury but pretty nice in a chill, tropical way. I’d absolutely be keen to chill sipping pina coladas with my mates there, like Brett wanted to do while CHEATING and being JUST AS BAD AS THE AUSSIE CRICKET TEAM.
Sorry, not entirely over that absolute garbage behaviour.
Anyway, the resort is called Mango Bay Resort and yes, it’s in Fiji – even though I’m still arguing that, in fact, they’re just on the GC and using stock footage to fake a Fijian location.
The Coral Coast resort is set on 12 acres of rainforest, and as we’ve all seen it has a beachfront lagoon pool with a swim-up bar (all resorts should feature swim-up bars imo, otherwise what’s the fucking point) as well as it’s own stretch of beach.
Two other features the website mentions is the Bamboo Bar, which is where I’m assuming we keep seeing the stars absolutely wolfing down cocktails, and ‘The Moody Marlin‘ restaurant (lol) which no doubt will host a romantic dinner or two that will quickly go south and end with some angsty stares and cold silences. Moody Marlin INDEED.
The rooms are… fine. They’re not fab, but as we’ve seen in past sneak-peeks to Bachie mansions, accommodating a whole gang of people isn’t an easy task and therefore bunking down in giant, King-sized Tempur beds is probs not gonna be an option. Here’s a look at the Garden View Villa vibes:
And the Family Bure:
Whoever scored the Beachfront Bures though is fucking LIVING THE LIFE. I’d be way jealous and probably push ’em into that festy looking waterfall water in the hopes they catch a waterborne illness, so I could take over their accom. Just being honest.
DAYUM, that outdoor shower sitcho. Gimme.
It’s a pretty affordable place, if you’re keen for a hol. Prices for a night are around $88 bucks a night (googling for May timings) for the Garden Bure, and the schmick Beachfront ones go for around $130.
