What a tranquil and beautiful, indulgent stay that's close to home! AND WE COULD TAKE OUR BELOVED DOG! Loved every minute and will definitely become regulars. If I had to give any constructive feedback at all it would be to have an option to have dinner earlier than 7.30. That's just me being old. Loved it

Pros: The seclusion and the food
Cons: Beds were a bit soft form liking!
Location: Only walking and swimming, but that is enough if you only stay 2-3 days
All good. Ideal for honey-mooners or renewal of vows.

Ocean Views in a tropical paradise

Just do yourself a favour and book a stay at Kim's!!! I have never felt taken so far away from all the stresses in life as I did staying here!!! Gorgeous surroundings, comfortable room, best private spa area! The staff were just beautiful people - all happy and friendly and happy to go the extra mile to make your stay the best ever! The food at the restaurant was all included in your price and it was divine! Breakfast and dinner every day! We will be back!!!

Clever hideaway!

Pros: First bed my husband slept in that did not cause back pain!!
Cons: The decor in the rooms is a little dated.
Kim's is cleverly hidden in Toowoon Bay right near the beach. Rooms are lovely - we had a terrace room which was spacious and private. The jacuzzi on the terrace was a treat along with the spa in the bathroom. It rained quite a bit but the room was cozy and we still enjoyed the jacuzzi. It made us feel like we were in a rainforest! The food was wonderful - fresh sasimi and seafood, homemade jams and yoghurt, wonderful and varied courses. The staff always made you feel welcome and helped anyway they could.

So peaceful and a really nice atmosphere at Kim's.

Really enjoyed our stay and the view from the beachside bungalow was just amazing!! Food was great I just find the set meal times were a little later than we would normally eat dinner.

Relaxation +++

Pros: Food, peace and quiet, environment, staff attentiveness.
Location: Didn't leave the hotel. It was a complete withdrawal from the world.
Beautiful relaxing setting. Wonderful food. Massage was excellent. Environment stunning. Loved every minute of our stay.

While the meals included were really good, this accommodation is very dated and not really worth the price tag
