Sanctuary in the Cove
At your hotel
One of the definitions of sanctuary is a 'place of peaceful privacy'. Sanctuary in the Cove is a true getaway for couples (no children) in a stunning waterfront location. The accommodations are a choice of 2 stand-alone, modern waterfront cottages over 100m apart and completely out of sight of each other. The offering enables a totally independent and self-contained stay in a hideaway of more than 3 acres of creatively landscaped sub-tropical gardens and bush with stream.
This unique place has a 120m water frontage that opens onto a virtually private cove. It offers the perfect sanctuary in an amazingly tranquil romantic setting.
Guests can swim, kayak, fish or snorkel in the waters of the cove just a walk away across their front lawns. Other boating options are also available.
