We arrived late in the evening at the Thala Beach Lodge after initially missing our flight and then missing a turn on a roundabout and ending up 50 km from the resort. Check in went well and we slept for a few hours in our Coral Sea Bungalow before leaving for a rain forest tour in the morning. The view from the room was initially very nice. The next day we notified the resort staff about a non-working outside fan and an issue with an air conditioner. They were very helpful and quickly provided us with a different room once we brought it to their attention The room they moved us to had an even better view very close to the beach. All the resort buildings have an incredibly beautiful wood floors. The resort is nicely decorated and well landscaped with the trails and wading pools blending in to the surroundings. We had an enjoyable evening meal at the Ospreys restaurant. The menu had a nice selection and the food was very good. We received Great service from the resort staff. The Thala Beach Lodge has a magnificent secluded location and the view from the Ospreys restaurant is spectacular !!!
