As the sign says as you drive in, 'Drive Slowly, Breathe Deeply'. Hidden Pond just quietly takes your breath away with its laid back appeal but with absolutely every detail of service and hospitality covered. They just don't brag about it. This is a place that needs to be added to the list of '100 places to see before you die' but you don't 'see' Hidden Pond as much as 'be' here. From the freshly brewed coffee on my verandah at sun up, the basket of suncreams by the pool, the free rides to town or beach whenever you felt like it, outdoor showers, picking fresh herbs, vegetables and flowers from their communal gardens, yoga under the trees, beach service with a paddleboard lesson thrown in... and then that stunning 'yes, we have a restaurant' which the world is raving about, 'earth'. Sublime. Please God, let me come back here at least one more time.
