My favorite moment during my stay (among many!) has probably been the afternoon tea at The Leopard Bar. I honestly think that its terrace is one of the best spots in the city for dining or having drinks while enjoying the sunset in front of the ocean! Truly spectacular!

For the afternoon tea, the selection of the food was absolutely delicious. The chef meticulously selects each ingredient to make your food experience unforgettable. And it really was! One of the best high teas I have ever had! I also adored the way they served it: design and presentation were impeccable!

The biggest surprising highlight was the possibility of choosing a Vegan High Tea! By chance, my friend is vegan and she could not believe how extraordinary the food was for her! Normally what you get for the vegan option might be very boring and simple, but the chef thought about a special menu for people who deserve to get an equally delicious experience! Big up for the chef!!!

Getting back to the “regular” afternoon tea, I can guarantee every single bite was so good! πŸ™‚



The following day I had the pleasure to spend some relaxing time at the Twelve Apostle Luxurious Spa. As soon as I got there I felt the magic of that place…

I also had a fantastic treatment, my favorite actually: a hot stone massage. The therapist was so professional and she asked me carefully every single detail about my preferences. Very good!

During my stay at The Twelve Apostles Hotel, I had the pleasure to spend my night in one of the ‘Luxury Room’. Beautifully decorated and perfectly cleaned, this room was facing the mountains and partially the ocean. I really appreciated that before my arrival, the management sent me a document to fulfill with all my preferences: what kind of pillow, what kind of sheet, duvet, and many others… Phenomenal, this is what I consider ‘very good service’!
