Naturally, just one of the extra significant parts of any resort continue to be is your place! We had stayed in Penthouse Suite (2 individuals) and two Oceanview Courtyard Rooms (2 folks per room). Wherever do I start….the Penthouse (lately renovated) was simply spectacular. We actually enjoyed the private balcony with unobstructed sights of the Ga Strait (pairs effectively with a cozy gown and glass of champagne), the thoroughly equipped kitchenette, and a eating desk as well as dwelling room house, producing it HQ for the overall workforce during our stay.

Courtyard and Outdoor Place
I am a sucker for cozying up by a fire, so when I noticed the several firetables nestled thorughout the Serenity Gardens I was in heaven. Each night time we got into our cozy clothes, grabbed a glass of wine and sat all over the hearth. Is there everything extra quintessential West Coast than this?!
Our encounter with the Kingfisher personnel genuinely built the excursion particular! From the pre-excursion setting up, to staff in the spa, cafe and about the grounds, we felt pretty warmly welcomed. It was a hard location to leave, the supreme sign of a holiday properly expended.
