If you’re still looking to stay socially distant during the last few months of the pandemic, how about buying up a whole hotel?

In the Australian state of Queensland, Bloomfield Lodge — a former Forbes Magazine “World’s Best Remote Hotel” — is up for grabs via auction, now listed for sale by Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty.

There is no listing price and the deadline to submit any expressions of interest is April 30.

The Daily Mail reports this nearly 7-acre Cape Tribulation spread, located next to the world famous Great Barrier Reef, is owned by Mike Gooley — the founder of British travel company Trailfinders.

Beyond that well-known neighbor, the secluded tropical property is also surrounded by the Daintree Rainforest and features more than 2,100 feet (656 meters) of coastline along Weary Bay.

Gooley reportedly bought the lodge in 1990 and converted it into an eco-retreat after investing an extra $15 million for capital improvements. With 18 guest suites, all of which look out to the Coral Sea, it’s now offered as a resort or as a buyer’s private escape. 

Bloomfield Lodge previously operated under the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” banner, with additional guest perks including a pool, a gym, spas, an outdoor restaurant and bar, and hiking trails.

It hosted guests from around the world, but it was also popular among Aussies. The images show a decor with rustic charm, including wood-heavy details and patios spacious enough for group seating.

Even now, guests can arrive by water thanks to a private pier, as well as by air. The property benefits from a helipad and an exclusive-use airport with a nearly 3,500-foot paved runway.
