and likely some of the best anywhere. This is a superb resort. From the windy gravel road, you reach a gatehouse where your car is left and you are transferred to the main building. it's as if you're heading to Jurassic park. (though thankfully I didn't spot a single escaped velociraptor). We were welcomed, offered champagne then lunch and only then did we get escorted to our suite. (and this hotel is where the word suite really means something. They all have private indoor/outdoor pools. beautiful furnishings of exquisite quality and taste. The hotel has a brilliant mix where you can be as active or as relaxed as you wish. in our short 1 night stay we managed a wildlife tour. (where we spotted an Albino Kangaroo, which even for an Aussie is amazing). 2 bike rides, a horse ride and also managed to have some lovely meals overlooking the stunning scenery, The staff are wonderful friendly and warm. From Joost the General manager to everyone we met, they were wonderful. My only gripe about this hotel is that we had to leave. I cannot wait to return. Yes its expensive, but it's exceptionally good value. I've travelled a lot and there isn't anything i've seen to compare in Australia and there are few places to match this in the world. I'm also planning to buy their bed. It's the best one I've ever slept in.
