We stayed at Tyax for two nights and loved it. The room was spacious and very well decorated, the beds were extremely comfy, the room was clean and the toiletries of a high standard. We had robes which were useful in the room but also to go to the spa in. We had a room at the bottom so we had a patio which over looked the lake (the view was stunning). But it can be noisy when people are walking around in the room above.
When staying at the resort the spa is complimentary, this includes, sauna, steam room, outdoor jacuzzi etc. The washrooms at the spa are kept clean and well stocked with complimentary shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and large towels. There is also water available in the spa and treatments can be booked at a charge.
Unfortunately whilst we were there the large sauna was out of order and also the outdoor jacuzzi.
There is also complimentary table tennis, table football, library, outdoor tennis, canoes and paddle boats. These can all be used at any time throughout the day. Activities like horse riding and a sea plane ride can all be arranged at a charge.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The house keeping staff do seem to be under staffed as they were still cleaning rooms at 5pm, which is well after check-in time.
The meals in the restaurant were very nice and the service was extremely good. They are a little pricey but the patio menu served at lunchtime is a little cheaper and is still excellent quality.
The drive to Tyax is somewhat of an adventure in itself. We travelled via Carpenter lake Road which meant passing logging trucks on a gravel road with a sheer drop at the side is quite scary. There is another service road to Tyax but it is not recommended for small vehicles as it is a service road. However, it is well worth the drive!
