Need to know
Just three suites.
11am; earliest check-in, 3pm (both are flexible, subject to availability, and no charges apply). Let Lisa know your ETA, so she can be there to welcome you.
Double rooms from $413.50 (AU$541), excluding tax at 10 per cent.
Rates usually include breakfast; daily replenished goodies are laid out in your hideaway for you to enjoy when you please. Help yourself to the soft-drinks minibar in your suite. Rates exclude a 1.43 per cent surcharge for all credit-card payments.
You’re here to relax, so if an aching muscle is getting in the way, speak to Lisa: she can organise a visit from a nimble-knuckled local masseuse. Book ahead for guaranteed pampering. Meals are all-inclusive, but for an additional charge, you can have an even more romantic meal brought to your door – to enhance the experience, staff can attach love notes to balloons and set them free in your hideaway.
Every Wednesday and Thursday night from April to December, inclusive.
At the hotel
Beach, stash of CDs and DVDs, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV, CD player, DVD player, radio, iPod dock, minibar, Olieve & Olie bath products.
Our favourite rooms
Being suckers for nautical niceness (especially when the sea's in reach), we lost our hearts to Beach: a serene blue-and-white suite with driftwood furniture (designed by clever owner Paul), pebbles in jars, aquamarine mosaic tiles and a rudder on the wall. A close second is exotic Dunes, which has antique furnishings and warm hues, and an open-air spa tub on an expansive deck.
No main pool, but each suite has a two-person spa bath on its private deck, so you can bubble away happily outside, whatever the season. You’re just steps away from St Andrews beach, too.
The National Park is on your doorstep, so bring trainers and explore it. Remember a notebook so you can jot down what you eat: you’ll be wanting to recreate those breakfasts back home.
Smokers can puff away happily on their suite's private deck.
Romantic? Yes. Secluded? Absolutely. Child-friendly? Eh, not so much.
