My partner and I spent two amazing nights at Pelican Sands. From the moment we arrived on the Friday night, we were greeted by two of the loveliest people :-) Mick and Susan, a married couple who are also the owners of the place. We were lucky enough to have the whole house to ourselves that night, so we got a tour of each fabulous room. We stayed in the Bali Hai room (A little something to get us ready for our Bali trip next year for our anniversary) Each room is so beautifully decorated and spotless. I loved the beautiful romance room, like stepping into a Romeo and Juliet move scene...the Arabian nights room was gorgeous, so was the Indira room and the BEAUTIFUL Moulin Rouge room upstairs (Only one without a spa...but the balcony makes up for it!)...a gorgeous and inviting house all round...and it even has it's own gift shop with lovely hand crafted bits and pieces...just GORGEOUS. This place is exactly what you are looking for on a relaxing, romantic getaway. The bed in the room was SO comfy...the spa so spacious...even the bubble bath is provided for you and there is a selection of DVD's in your room, none of this "pay to watch" business you find in other places!! Those little touches made the place even more special. The shower was the highlight for me...I am VERY fussy with bathrooms and this one was BRILLIANT!! No water saving head, just your good old fashioned shower heads that you cannot find anywhere anymore. MAGNIFICENT. The breaky was cooked for us by Mick and was delicious. Fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, cereals, toast, juice and coffee...and then eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomato..the works! We met some lovely couples on the morning we were leaving at breakfast...all in all, I recommend this place to any couple looking to getaway from the stresses of everyday...just perfect.
