The Sanctuary lakes resort is a wonderful place to have a break from all the hustle and bustle of a busy life. It's a great spot to connect with nature again! Lovely to watch and feed the water fowls and fresh water turtles! The self-contained units are comfortable and spacious with everything you need to have a great stay! I love the little verandah,where I could enjoy,looking across the lake, watching and listening to nature. The resort is a short walk from the beach and it's great to go for a walk and a swim along the esplanade! Also near the shops and fabulous restaurants.
