Decided to take a well deserved 'Me Time' getaway, The Elephant Hide seemed perfect to relax and chill at. Stunning views of the lagoon, beautiful rooms, jet bath for relaxation, a shower with a view and such friendly staff. I felt totally at ease being on my own. It's really a tranquil getaway, and I will definitely be going back soon!
