My partner and I spent three wonderful days at this beautifully appointed retreat. The location in Julatten is fabulous for those wishing to get away from beach crowds or heat.
During our stay the air was clear and the temperature was just magic. Our lodge (one of two) was cleverly designed and the appointments showed that no expense had been spared. The alfresco kitchen provided the best cooking experience imaginable, with the rainforest as our backdrop. The spa was great, and I will leave you to discover the shower for yourself,,,,, let's just say 'spacious'. The bed was in my top five comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Until sleeping on clouds becomes possible, go to Sweetwater. I can still smell the wonderful aroma of the Australian timber of the fine crafted cupboards, tables and furniture.
We wanted to be by ourselves, and we were given complete privacy. On those occasions during our strolls that we came across our hosts Glenn, Wendy and the boys, we found them to be warm and friendly.
I could go on and on, but I'm just so sad that I am not back there right now!
