No, this time we stayed at a resort hotel that's atop a high cliffside with million dollar views out over the ocean. When you arrive at the reception area you get a sense of the magnificent scenic views that await you as you walk through the foyer and bar area.
The pool area has million dollar views out over the Coral Sea.
If you walk over to the railing at the back of the pool area you realise very quickly just how high up you really are.
The resort is nestled in amongst a rainforest area that's been filled with loads of fabulous tropical plants. The whole resort is interlinked with boardwalks that connect the rooms located at different positions on the cliffside. Here's the palm tree lined boardwalk that led to our room.
The ocean views, of course, didn't stop at the poolside area. There were magnificent views from our room,
and even when we went walking along various other boardwalks, the glorious blue ocean was always in sight.
Yes we did venture down to 'Lover's Bay', but unfortunately I forgot to take my camera with me!
The food was divine and even after a simple lunch, eaten while relaxing in the bar area, we felt obliged to go off wandering again. At least we made a few token efforts at getting some gentle exercise and therefore didn't feel entirely guilty about the amount of time we spent just relaxing and chilling out in this beautiful spot!
I'm ever so grateful that my darling husband went along to a Business Luncheon and Auction organised to raise money for breast cancer research. Luckily, his was the winning bid on a weekend for two package to the Elandra Resort and this even coincided beautifully with the fact that I celebrated a birthday in this last week. Sometimes we really do feel rather blessed!
