Words can hardly describe East Bedarra Island Retreat. From the moment we arrived it was the tropical island fantasy you dream about: stepping off the boat onto the sand of a beautiful little bay, the retreat was right there at the water’s edge.
As you walk past the plunge pool that has been created by a natural boulder formation and into the fabulous large covered deck you are just mesmerised by the breathtaking views of the blue water, islands and the mainland beyond. You could feel the pent up stress begin to drain away as you are handed a glass of chilled French Champagne; thanks to the retreats onsite caretakers Elaine and Colin who were very helpful.
The retreat is tasteful and modern with water views from every room…including the bathroom. We were happy to find that the retreat is eco-friendly accredited and picked up some good tips to take home. For the first day we didn’t leave the deck and just lazed on the sunbeds and swinging seat before venturing out to discover the island.
We walked over to another stunning bay and went snorkelling around a little reef on one day and paddled around the whole island on a double paddle board on another. It was so romantic we didn’t want to leave.
Thanks Sharon for designing a very memorable holiday. It wasn't long enough and we will definitely be back.More
