We start the stay how we hope to begin every romantic getaway: complimentary champagne.
Once we’ve toured the suite and captured enough photos to illicit countless comments of jealousy and awe from friends on Instagram, we head straight for the Lovehoney Mini Play Bar (all inclusive, of course).
A smorgasbord of sexual pleasure (worth $800) suited to for all experience types from beginners to experts, the selection includes multiple sex toys (our favourite being the Agent Provocateur Rumba Wand Vibrator), plus Raspberry Lubricant, Fifty Shades of Grey Wrist Cuffs and Faux Leather Spanking Paddle.
So that we can look, but most importantly feel, the part, there’s also lingerie for two.
I’ve never managed to convince my partner to sport something a little racier, so I’m almost more excited about the piece Lovehoney has picked out for him.
The sheer, red leopard print briefs are so soft and fun he declares he never wants to take them off—of course, it doesn’t take long until he does.
We spend the afternoon sipping cocktails by the pool in our fluffy white robes, indulge in dinner at Three Blue Ducks located within the hotel and then head back to the room for a rose petal-filled bath, courtesy of the Dr Love bath soak gifted in the package.
If the scene weren’t already set, there’s a carefully curated playlist to get us in the mood. And for those looking to make the most of their new accessories, boost their confidence or try something new there's an exclusive streaming service offering sexual wellness video clips from sexperts.
Leading men's sex coach Cam Fraser can certainly teach you a thing or two when it comes to, well, using those toys for two. Then, of course, there's Bondage 101, to trial that afforementioned paddle and cuffs.
If you're after something a little tamer, but just as pivotal, there are clips on improving communication in the bedroom (we all love someone who can ask for what they want) and how to boost your sexual confidence.
A ‘sexologist concierge’ service offering a free consultation with award-winning sexologist Chantelle Otten is also available during the stay or up to two weeks after (if you’re too caught up enjoying the room). The one-on-one chat with Chantelle had us opening up about our deepest desires and insecurities—there's no pressure, we promise—to improve our sex life well beyond our stay.
The next morning is spent in bed in the next best possible way—with breakfast—as we relish in the last hours of our stay before a 12pm checkout when we pry ourselves from the hotel, feeling all loved up and all loved out.
