Heaven on Earth
My advice to you – bypass the formal dining area to the spectacular cliff hanging balcony…and dress like you’re Grace Kelly lazing by a pool in Monaco not like a14 year old boy who’s just thrown on a jumper, jeans and some old boots at mums request. I did not get that memo (thanks Mr P.S).
No matter who you are or what you wear the first time you visit Jonah’s I promise you’ll be in awe of this heavenly oasis and the beautiful people who inhabit it on a sunny day.
After we finished our drinks and a couple of chicken bacon baguettes we decided it was time to take our little party down to the garden. As soon as we sat down on the two white sun chairs we were greeted by yet another friendly member of Jonah’s wait staff.
“Why not try every damn beverage in this joint?” I said to Mr P.S, slipping comfortably into the roll of Queen of the world.
Your wish is my command.
Secretly battling with the urge to go to the bathroom I sipped my glass of wine and listened to Mr P.S talk about his past, something he did with a great sense of caution. I knew it wasn’t because he had something to hide but rather because he preferred to live in the moment. I don’t think I have ever dated someone as perceptive as him, Mr P.S’s intense green eyes always seemed to be on me and at the slightest sign of trepidation on my face he would always ask if I were ok.
Of course the answer would always be yes and I would often wonder how I could be anything less than 100% in his presence.
The next thing we knew it was late afternoon and the warmth formally being generated by a bottle of red was beginning to wear off.
“Would you like a blanket?” a young girl asked promptly.
Would we ever…
Blanket tick, wine tick, exclusive seating tick, view tick, great company tick tick tick! The only thing that was missing was something to nibble on. Low and behold Jonah’s serves food all day with plenty of delicious things to pick from. As we’d already demolished chicken bacon baguettes Mr P.S decided to order us something lighter…
Followed by something simply decadent.
There’s no denying Jonah’s got all the moves and he even has an award to prove it. Jonah’s is the only Relais & Chateaux hotel in Sydney which after a little googling I realise is a pretty big deal. Relais & Chateaux is the most prestigious hotel association in the world and there are only four in Australia! Read more about it here.
After spending the entire day at Jonah’s I now understand what all the hype is about. Everything from the friendly and attentive service to the magnificent views of Whale Beach is unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I believe that above everything what makes Jonah’s truly great is the attention to detail. Everything from the blankets on request to the cufflinks on the servers shirts is undeniably refined, which makes everyone who walks in the door (even those wild braless folk) feel like royalty.
I highly suggest you escape to Palm Beach and visit Jonah’s next time you’re looking to escape the city! You won’t regret it. Reservation are required for in door dining but don’t fret if you haven’t booked, you can hang outside on the lounges like we did for as long as your heart desires. For those of you who are cashed up why not stay the night in one of Jonah’s exclusive rooms? That is definitely going on my bucket list.
As for Mr P.S well he scored some very big points for introducing me to this little piece of heaven on earth. Next week it’s my choice where we go. I can choose anywhere. Anywhere! Where would i most like to go in all of NSW? Well that’s easy. Let me give you a hint: I will not only have to wear a bra but a harness as well 😉
Exciting times ahead…
Until then lovers!
