We have stayed at Kims at least once a year since 1994, most recently in April 2014 (about 28 stays in all so far). Each time it's like we're returning to our own private beach house, whichever one we choose. We have spent anniversaries and birthdays here as well as "just because" occasions. The setting is wonderful - Toowoon Bay... More

We stayed two days, and it was our first time. Accommodation, meals and service were all excellent. Kims strives for perfection and almost achieves it. So why not 100% perfect? Because the token slices of decorative lime accompanying the breakfast papaya are far too thin to be able to squeeze any juice over the papaya. It is teasing the guests... More

We went there for the first time this long weekend. Here is what I love about Kim's: - The View 'Position' is Kim's trump card. The view from our beachfront bungalow was second to none. We were right on the beach with an unobscured view, overlooking beautifully maintained grounds. The coastline there is pristine. - No Children Policy The resort... More

It was out first stay at Kim's and we arrived on a Tuesday and left on a Sunday. We were celebrating a birthday and they very kindly organised a cake - home-made and delicious, and when we couldn't finish it, they wrapped it, and let us take the plate back to our cabin. That set the tone for the stay... More

This place is delightful; the palms, the superb tropical gardens, the history and the ambiance could be straight out of "South Pacific".
