        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The most impressive things: haute cuisine (menu is not so long, but each dish is cooked by inspiration!), excellent location - bungalos are deepened in rain forest (eucalipts) and are just in a few paces from wonderful sand beach, very friendly and experienced stuff. We asked advices for local activitits and forever had detailled qualified answers.

        • Couple
          8.2

          The surroundings are beautiful and the staff very friendly. The beach is very quiet and romantic: perfect for us as my aim of the trip was to propose to my girlfriend, which we did at sunset at that very same beach, with a glass of wine and a picnic basket.

          The premises is located on a hill and therefore a bit steep here and there. Not a problem though since the staff will move your luggage around on golf buggies, and they will gladly pick you up from the beach or your cabin.

          Very help-full and friendly staff, tranquil setting.

          Although the reception,bar, dinning areas and main areas were absolutely faultless, the villas were a little tired and dark.

          The views and position were magnificent

          Everything. It was beautiful. Charming, helpful staff and wonderful room.

          Food was good but compared to the quality of the hotel, felt it could have been a little better

        • Family with children
          7.8

          lovely setting. staff wonderful. romm lovely and sea view good. lots of wildlife and knowledgeable guide. My only complaint is that the restaurant needs ugrading as the food is expensive but not upto the standard of the rest of the lodge. very disapointed in the meal which itself was the most expensive we have paid in australia! miss that one. we had a wonderful meal in port douglas.
