Sail Into the Sunset

Nothing says romantic date like sailing into the sunset. And where better to make your dream date a reality than at one of the Seven Wonders of the World? Sip on a glass of bubbly while taking in the magical array of pinks, purples and oranges that swirl over the surrounding islands. It’s something that needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated.


The Spa 

If this isn’t one for the indulgent lovers out there, we don’t know what is. The WAHI heated spa is located amongst our lush-landscaped gardens, which is the perfect place to unwind from a big day of exploring, or a tough day of drinking cocktails by the water. Open exclusively to WAHI guests, you’re guaranteed a peaceful ambience to chill out together. 


Picnic on Catseye Beach

Whether it’s your first visit to the island or your hundredth, a picnic at Catseye Beach never gets old. There are plenty of restaurants just a short walk away offering takeaway menus that are brimming with flavour and variety. Or why not pick up your favourite fresh produce from the local IGA and prepare your own picnic basket in your fully-equipped WAHI kitchen. With the cool sea breeze, sand underfoot and the sounds of the sea lapping on the shore, it could be a scene from a romantic blockbuster.
