We went to Whale's Way for the first part of our honeymoon and stayed in the Ocean suite. When we walked into the suite, my wife couldn't believe her eyes and hugged me and jumped up and down at the same time. The suite is breath taking with a view of the ocean from the bed and a view of trees from the jacuzzi bath. The room is very spacious with a huge bed, large jacuzzi bath and two basins. It also has a standard shower, toilet, fridge, walk-in cupboard area and lounging area. The whole suite is one large room with only the toilet enclosed separately. There is a vast range of delicious food to choose from for breakfast.
The beach is within walking distance, although quite a few steps down (and up again). It is also close to many other activities and tourist attractions.
The owner, Dedrei, is very accommodating and extremely helpful, with lots of knowledge of the area and activities. The special treats after a day out was a lovely touch which we really appreciate.
We stayed for 4 nights, but felt that is was still too short.
This was truly a magical experience, and I would recommend this to anybody wanting to explore the garden route region or just relax in the most beautiful setting.
