|View of The Hazards, from our room|
All that extra space made our stay that much more comfortable. While bub napped, Stu and I were able to have a rest in the living area, eat in peace and enjoy that gorgeous view.
One of the first things Stu and I did was to take turns to visit the spa where we received much needed personalised massages to soothe our aching bodies. It was so nice to have that one hour of pampering and we felt the most relaxed we'd been in months.
The lovely staff at Saffire Freycinet had organised a babysitter for us for a couple of hours each night. So while Alexander slept, Stu and I ducked out for a romantic dinner at the on-site Palate restaurant where the food (oh the food!) was simply spectacular. We feasted on beautiful fresh local produce served with matched wines; rib eye with a rich creamy sauce, duck with baby beetroot and chocolate filled mini spring rolls, succulent lamb and grilled lobster served simply with herb butter. Just the mere thought of our meals is making my mouth water.

I would like to make mention here the outstanding service that was provided on our second night's stay, when part way through our dinner, I was so tired, I decided to skip dessert and go straight to bed. Upon hearing this, our waitstaff, Hayley, offered to bring our desserts to our room so we can enjoy it in comfort and not miss out. Which is of course what we did - with absolute delight.
