Very chilled 3 days, truly amazing location, great food, and bar, super view, great service and staff, really good island tours, great library room in annex, ( check out their cd collection and wonderful big book on world photography! The sound (and vibration) of big waves crashing on below coast line is fabulous way to fall asleep!
so what could be better??
Well couple of points only, try to avoid Mercedes Spinner van on airport pickup, its pretty rough for 5 star transfers, and check if Internet wifi failed in room, ( but was available in lobby)
Overall it is amazing experience, will return in Winter season as waves straight from Antarctic will only be more impressive!
I preferred room with low numbers as they are furthest from lobby and have most privacy, but all room have great views!
In lobby toilets not marked men's or women's, just random pictures?
Mercedes spinner van to be avoided
Wifi Internet does not work..
Sunday AM breakfast bizarre with 30 minutes wait for cooked breakfast
& no explanation!
Ash & Wen are very friendly...
Is it great yes! Can it be better yes!
What is great! View, rooms, food, bar, most staff...
