The resort is just off the esplanade but it is only about 50 metres from the beach and 100 metres to the start of the cafes . Given this once you enter the grounds you feel that you are well away from any hustle and bustle.
From the street the property does not look anything special but once you enter the gate you find a different world. Lovely well manicured grounds and a natural lagoon with plenty of bird life. It has a large well maintained pool and BBQ area.
Most of the units are in several complexes about 4 stories high - however we stayed in unit 22 which was quite different . It is a one bedroom stand alone unit which is accessed via the pool.and is right next to the lagoon but on the opposite side to the other buildings This makes it very private and great for bird watching . We stayed for a week and every day we had a variety of birds within a few meters of our balcony.
The unit has a bedroom , kitchen /dinging area a small lounge area , bathroom and a separate area with a two person spa. It did not appear to be quite as modern as the units shown on the web site but I assume those photos when from the units in the complexes. Never the less it was well equipped and quite comfortable.
This unit would be great for a nature lover or someone who was looking for something different.
We did get some noise from the birds ( not a problem for us ) and the fountain in the lagoon during the day and in school holidays there maybe some noise from the pool.
