    Such a beautiful place to stay. Great sized rooms and good amenities. Pool was lovely to laze around. Would highly recommend the cocktails at Spice Den. Wish we could have stayed longer! Looking forward to going back again soon.

    We go there for a rest often and are always happy. The staff are there to help with any queries and are very nice. No need drive for shopping as there is a Coles supermarket nearly opposite .We will be back there again.

    Restaurants at Salt less than 10 min drive, you can hire cycles at Santai if your keen, however Spice Den at Santai is excellent and I recommend it over anything at Salt. Beach is only a 3-5 min walk away.
