Just hoping to get some suggestions on where we should spend the last 4 nights of our honeymoon (we are staying 3 nights in the Daintree).
Our first thought was to stay at the Peninsula Boutique, as the majority of reviews are quite positive, and I really like the no kids policy :-) However after reading more, although everyone is happy with their rooms, it seems to be more of a low-key unit style complex, with non- extravagant (albeit really nice) less resorty stlye rooms. Am I right about this?
We both really like the idea of having a resort style accomadation with nice villas or bungalows or something, and thus have looked at the sea temple or thala (we will be renting a car), but don't like the idea of listening to screaming kids the whole time (or any of the time for that matter, hehe). However, looking at the school holiday charts, non of Australia is in holidays at this time. Has anyone been to either of these resorts at this time, or know if there are still lots of kids around? Is there anyway to avoid it by staying in certain rooms at either of these places?
Also, does anyone have a comparison of these two places in terms of accomadation and facilities. In terms of Thala becah lodge, It looks to be located about 10-15 minutes drive out of town, is there anywhere other than the resort around there to eat or get drinks? We would like to try some different restaurants and not have to drive home (we like wine :) Is the beach nice in that area, most of the reviews I read were about the resort. Is there anything to do in the area short of driving the 10 mins to Port Douglas? Snorkelling equipment provided etc.
Finally we will arrive in Port Douglas around the 25th of May, from what I have read the stingers are gone by this time, and the water is nice for swimming, am I right with this?
