As soon as you glide down over the sparkling turquoise lagoon and step onto a runway dwarfed by two imposing basalt mountains, you realise that LHI is a serene spectacular place to relax and unwind. We were greeted personally by the charming owner of Pinetrees, Jim McFadgen. He took us for a little tour in his minibus, telling us a wealth of information on the way to the resort. We really felt like we were staying with friends, as the staff were so polite and accommodating. The delicious meals were 5 star gourmet standard and the seafood could not have been fresher! I loved sunset drinks at the boatshed on lagoon beach, with attentive staff circulating platters of tasty canapes. We also enjoyed the BBQ lunch option, where staff deliver an esky chock full of yummy food to any beach you choose, then pick it all up later. Every morning I walked 1km up Transit Hill directly behind the resort to enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view as I did my stretches...and offset the calories I enjoyed the day before. I HIGHLY recommend this resort as the most comprehensive way I have found to relax and enjoy a holiday. Please don't tell too many people!
