The best getaway destinations are those which can be enjoyed anytime of the year. A hotel where time stands still and rejuvenates ones body and soul whether the sun is flexing its big rays or whether the cool air kisses our skin leaving it pink at its touch.
Kim’s Beach Hideaway is one such place.
It’s hidden amongst a rainforest, right on Toowoon Beach on NSWs Central Coast. The compound is designed for reflection, rejuvenation and romance as the only sounds you can hear are the waves crashing on the shore, the gentle muffles of the few other patrons as they pass your hut and the rumblings of resident wildlife. No children running a muck because it’s adults only!
There is one sound which penetrates the resort – thrice daily the bell rings signalling the buffet is now open. Guests are given a table during their stay and the dining room overlooks the beach and surrounding islands. At breakfast the view is nothing short of magnetic. I have been known to stay seated long after a meal has been served reading, watching or conversing.
After enjoying the gourmet food I return to the room to either prepare myself for the day, or wind down for the evening. The cabins are very comfortable with an ‘island chic’ flavour. An aging island chic vibe but it does a layer of comfort to the experience. There is lots of wood paneling and cane furniture. It many ways it reminds me of my families old school beach house. However our beach house didn’t include an in room or outdoor spa which the base rooms offer!
Due to the limited number of rooms and the all inclusive nature of the stay, the troops are not cheap. However for an escape from a busy work or family life you will return home ready to tackle whatever life will throw at you.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit Kim’s twice; once with a former parter to decide whether we continue or end the relationship, and another time to reflect and consider a suitor. It gives me space not always found in the city, and as a result it holds a very special place in my heart.
For the Sydney siders amongst us it’s an especially great option as it’s less than a two hour drive from Sydney city.
If you choose to visit Kim’s, I’d love to know your thoughts!
