My now fiancé arranged a surprise holiday far far away from Berlin, Germany .
We arrived in Cairns high is where I thought we were staying, there was a limousine waiting to take us closer to the surprise destination with a boat to take us to East Bedarra Island Retreat.
When we arrived on the beach I saw a table set up with flowers and champagne where my now fiancé proposed to me at sunset. I never imagined that such a place could be found with everything you could ever dream of.
My favorite part of the retreat was to be to hang out together with so many areas to choose from all capturing the stunning views of the islands surrounding us. Sunsets each day were stunning , the salt water pool so close to our bedroom , but most favorite of all is the swinging Lounge . I loved being in a natural Unspoilt environment . As I am currently studying sustainable tourism management in Germany I really appreciated the minimal impact to the environment that will protect this beautiful paradise for our return Honeymoon .
