Teresa Hirsig – January 2021

What an amazing day! The view is spectacular as was the cocktails & food. W had a great afternoon here, relaxing on the floating beds in the pool. The staff were very friendly, and the service was great. This will be on the to do list when we are back in Airlie for sure.
