Elandra Mission Beach – Perfection
Posted on September 26, 2008 by admin
Being a special birthday weekend I decided a treat was in order, so where better than to treat oneself but a weekend away at Elandra at Mission Beach! After finally getting on the road we ended up at Mission Beach which took about three hours from the Northern Beaches of Cairns as we had quite a few hold ups with a number of different road works.
Elandra is situated at South Mission beach on a headland that looks over Dunk Island. As we arrived at night I could not witness the view but at least it was something to look forward to the following morning. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely receptionist and explained how to get to our rooms. All the rooms at Elandra are connected by an elevated timber boardwalk. Our room was light and airy, with a great bed a spacious balcony, 32 inch lcd flat screen TV, a treasure chest with an assortment of goodies to tempt you and a fantastic shower all equipped with the most amazing Kevin Murphy products which smelt absolutely beautiful.
Well it was off to dinner and this did not disappoint. We firstly sat at the bar for a cocktail before we were seated at our table. Just reading the menu left my mouth watering in eager anticipation of my meal. Our choice was freshly shucked oysters for entrée and I must say the best I have had since three years ago at the Palm Cove Fiesta!
For main we both could not go past the twice cooked pork belly which was just melted in you mouth and unfortunately left no room for the dessert which looked equally amazing!
After dinner it was time to retire back to our room and await the sun to come up, so we could check out the view. Again the view did not disappoint with glimpse to the right of Dunk Island. After a lazy lounging morning it was time to claim a sunbed for the day. The pool area is just jaw dropping with the most impressive view of Dunk Island in the back ground. The pool is dotted with two day beds scattered with brightly coloured cushions and array of either individual or double sun beds. Now I felt like a million dollars swimming around in the gorgeous pool and lounging reading Saturdays papers with a fresh sparkling mineral water in hand!
The following day I had an in room massage in qingdao organized which was the perfect way to top of my luxurious weekend away. I must say this massage was sooooo relaxing I nearly fell asleep.
Oh well with regret it was time to depart but with lasting memories of such a fantastic experience and a taste of service that was exceptional. Thank you to all at Elandra for such a great time! Elandra Information and Rates
