Perfect spot for our get together. Close to wedding venues , great walks and plenty of choice for meals out. Rooms very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Loved the spa bath! Only downside shower water splashed everywhere making floor very slippery.

Sorry for the delay just saw message. They do not serve breakfast or have a bar by the pool . Totally self contained . There is a bakery just down the road but wouldn't recommend it. The nearest place is Kingscliff 3 km away... More

Restaurants at Salt less than 10 min drive, you can hire cycles at Santai if your keen, however Spice Den at Santai is excellent and I recommend it over anything at Salt. Beach is only a 3-5 min walk away.
