We stayed at Thala Beach for a few nights whilst on honeymoon but wish we could have stayed longer! The setting was lovely, from the wooden cabins set amongst the trees to the private beach, it was just so relaxing and we particularly liked the fresh mango juices and cocktails. The service we had from all members of staff was first class, they were so friendly and helpful. We went on the star gazing tour with Rose (something we have never done before) and we also listened to the talk from the local Aboriginal elders, which were both interesting. The only suggestion I would make would be somewhere to purchase snacks rather than a full meal occasionally. Yes, it's true that Thala Beach is expensive but it is well worth it for the setting and the service and I would definitely go back.
