The Premier Bungalow poses a quandary: not how, but where to relax? Should you curl up by the open-hearth fireplace or steep in the soaking tub? Does the ocean look bluer from the private patio or the king-size bed? There’s no wrong answer. In fact, every single room on the property has been updated from the gleaming faucets down to the refinished floorboards, so you’ll find soothing elements and luxuries to love in all room levels.
Gaze out towards the glistening waters of the Pacific Ocean from the outdoor heated infinity-edged saltwater swimming pool and sun deck.
Leave the binoculars at home. Peer through one of the telescopes found on the terraces to spy whales in the ocean or distant stars up above.
Public and common areas are disability accessible, and there are several disability access rooms available.
Welcome. Travel cribs and baby monitors are free to borrow. Additional guests are $85 per night (a $50 fee plus $35 and tax for an extra bed), though kids under 17 stay free in suites with sofa beds. The restaurant has a children’s menu and high chairs.

Families can stretch out in the Superior Bungalow Suite, with a spacious separate living room and comfortable sofa bed for two. Request a suite with a private patio over a fireplace to gain a slice of outdoor space.
Children’s activities – scavenger hunts, arts and crafts activities, trips to the Chef’s garden – can be arranged for families.
The infinity-edged swimming pool with sun deck does have a shallow end.
Room service is conveniently available 24-hours a day. Children are welcome in the lounge and the dinning room with outdoor terrace, and both spots provide children’s menus and high chairs. The bar, however, is adults-only.
The hotel uses a fully licensed and bonded service, Child Time Nanny, which the concierge will book with six hours notice. The standard fee (subject to holiday rates and number of children) is $20 per hour, plus a $10 transportation fee.

Hop on the hotel’s free shuttle for trips to town where you’ll have easy access to the beach, fishing pier, boutiques, restaurants and museums for those rare, rainy days.
The hotel uses eco-friendly cleaning products, bathroom products and light bulbs. Many herbs and vegetables come from the on-site garden and the menu features locally sourced meat, fish and produce.
