Simply Poetry

A Postcard With Love

Where East meets West

An elegant home

The Grand Old Dame

A profusion of red and white Bougainvillea

and palm trees

by the terrace gardens

at the poolside

Sheer luxury

on this tropical isle.


Well known writers and poets

have stayed here

have been so inspired

by its beauty and history

Large and airy rooms

balconies overlooking

the vast ocean

Heritage by the sea.


The grand ballroom with crystal chandeliers

A popular venue

for functions and concerts

book launches

Dining outlets

fine and casual

or out on the patio

overlooking the seafront

Smooth jazz music

fine food at 1885

friends beckoning me

See you later …

    • It has a very rich history dating back to 1885 when it was first built. This majestic building is in the UNESCO declared World Heritage precinct. It is interesting to note that well known writers like Noel Coward, Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling have also been guests here. Thanks for your interest, Gallivanta. 🙂
