Broadbeach Waters, Australia
March 1, 2006
The staff is very welcoming, and the reception is just like being in your living room, complete with a great selection of books.
Our room was in the new wing of the cottage, on the second floor for $40 per night, and we were lucky enough to have a view of the Mekong river from our private balcony. The room was large with timber supports, timber bed, lamps and furniture, lime washed walls that were studded with a contrasting feature of dark stones, polished timber floors with rattan mats, and the ceiling was also timber with exposed beams. It was a pleasure to stay in. The only down side was that the bed was hard as a rock.
Along the front of the river are numerous restaurants including the one attached to Sala Prabang, this is where breakfast is served each day, and offered some fantastic views whilst dining.
