We headed to Ningaloo to tick off one of my husbands bucket list entries to swim with the Whale sharks. When investigating where to stay and searching for a bit of luxury as we were leaving the kids behind we discovered that there really wasn't too many choices. The best accomodation available was the Sal Salis Eco tents. We had the most magnificent time. The location is just beautiful! We swam 10 metres from the beach and were snorkelling on top of the most alive coral reef i have ever seen. The eco tents are simple but are clean and the linen is of very high quality. The king bed was very comfortable and it was wonderful being rocked to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. The food was very fresh and we were subjected to 5 star restaurant style food with matching wines for breakfast lunch and dinner - well maybe not wine for breakfast :-). We were taken on sea kyak adventures daily with Bevan our favourite guide - we called him the Steve Irwin of the sea! If you go don't miss the kyak and snorkel tour to the blue lagoon. This place is incredible and a once in a lifetime experience. We were given a nightime tour of the stars by Greg one night that was very enjoyable. The stars are so bright and light up the sky for our nightly sky show! A very warm and sincere thanks to all the staff for being so amazing. A special thanks goes to Mikey the resort Manager who is a most professional and kind man and seemed to be working 24/7 ensuring the guest experience was 5 star. This is not camping but Glamping! It is expensive yet I cannot put a cost on this terrific experience. They organised a tour for us to swim with the whale sharks and this tour was also a highligh of our 5 days. They are magnificent beautiful creatures. We will be back :-)!
