Secluded cliffside romance
Romantic, quiet and secluded, Water Blow Huts clings to the cliff above Dream Beach just around the bay from their busy neighbour, Dream Beach Huts.
Here the cliffside deck, infinity pool and restaurant score simply gobsmacking views that will (water) blow you away. Six smallish wood and thatch lumbung-style huts are arranged in two rows a little back from the cliffside, two enjoy the views, three partially and one not at all. The air-con cooled huts are modest but comfortable with decent beds netted to add to the romance and keep the mozzies at bay.
Rooms are a little dark—perhaps lighting is a tad too romantic—and minimal furnishings include bedside tables and a sideboard to keep your bags off the floor. You can make yourself a cuppa, too. Smart semi-outdoor tile and stone ensuite bathrooms are clean and airy with hot-water showers and somewhat unusually, a rack with hangers.
Relax on the furnished balcony and enjoy the view in private (if you are lucky to procure one), or move poolside and into a beanbag or onto a sun lounge. The cliffside swimming pool is small, but who cares when you can gaze at the crashing waves on the cliff below. The restaurant dishes up your included breakfast and offers other meals and drinks with the view. Pop in for a sundowner even if you’re not staying here.
If you’d prefer to eat out, it’s a short walk to restaurants, although the track is muddy and unlit at night. Many eateries in the vicinity do offer a free pick-up service.
We love the edge-of-the-world feeling of Water Blow Huts. It offers comparatively good value in this area, and is more upmarket than its more popular neighbour for around the same spend. Book early to nab a sea-view hut.
