Five OUT OF Five!

I had a great time at the Twelve Apostles Hotel, our room provided us with the nicest views of the ocean. This is definately an intimate five star Hotel.

With its exceptional hospitality coupled with a relaxing and splendid infrastructure, I really had an unforgettable experience as unique as its haven-like setting.

We enjoyed some nice and relaxing spa treatments during our stay and indulged in the best cuisine!
