My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in January in one of the Jungle Walk suites. The service by all staff was so friendly and welcoming. They are happy to help with anything you request and do it with a smile. The room which was nestled into the forest was lovely, nothing too flash but perfect for what we wanted. Private, clean, spacious with a nice big comfy bed. We really enjoyed relaxing with a few drinks on our balcony listening to the sounds of the forest before we went to dinner.
The restaurant is a little expensive but my partner thoroughly enjoyed his steak. Me being vegan obviously had limited choices on the menu but they were happy to turn the vegetarian pasta vegan for me. It was nice, but a little too oily for my liking. Personal preference... Breakfast was much of the same the next day, on the expensive side but still enjoyable and as usual, fantastic service.
The thing that really sets Thala apart is the location. You could spend days exploring all the bushwalks and surrounding beaches. We're going again in a weeks time, and this time we are going to grab one of the pre packed resort picnic baskets to take down and eat on the beach and watch the sun set. Can't wait!
