Lovely appointed room, had everything we needed including a washing machine, microwave and dishwasher. King size bed was comfortable and a nice view from the balcony over the swimming pool area. The only down side was the floor needed mopping, it was quite dirty.

We booked into Santai for 4 nights as we could not get into our favorite place down the road at Byron Bay. The accommodation provided and room facilities were fantastic. There was no daily service but you could request new towels, not sure you should...More

Loved our stay for 2 nights, the layout of the hotel can be a little confusing but once you know where you are going it helps. Beautiful hotel and really clean. Very happy with the overall quality and price.

Sorry for the delay just saw message. They do not serve breakfast or have a bar by the pool . Totally self contained . There is a bakery just down the road but wouldn't recommend it. The nearest place is Kingscliff 3 km away... More

Restaurants at Salt less than 10 min drive, you can hire cycles at Santai if your keen, however Spice Den at Santai is excellent and I recommend it over anything at Salt. Beach is only a 3-5 min walk away.
