When my boyfriend suggested we go to the Tuwanek for the weekend I couldn’t have been more excited. I had been once before for a bridal shower and LOVED it. This time we stayed in the Africa Queen room. With its luxurious furnishings and French doors into the bathroom with a grand claw-foot tub, the room was truly inspired. We awoke on Saturday and spent time before breakfast enjoying the breathtaking ocean view from the private balcony off our room. Krista’s breakfasts, served in the room, are extraordinary. She produced quite possibly the best Eggs Benedict I have ever tasted, along with fresh baked scones and a fruit salad. The next five hours were spent in the resort spa, which is housed in a quaint and cozy cabin adjacent to the resort. Sharon, who runs the spa and performs the services, is amazing. I would highly recommend her facials; they beat out even the facialisicous at Skoah! After being pampered to an almost guilty state, we headed back to our room, lit a fire, and enjoyed the picnic dinner we had brought with us (each room has a mini fridge and microwave). I thought that the experience could not get better and then my boyfriend proposed! It was the perfect setting – I can’t imagine a more beautiful and romantic place for it to happen. I would HIGHLY and unequivocally recommend this boutique resort and I look forward to going back on a regular basis.
