Blue Gum has earned its stripes as a beautiful, well-appointed, family-friendly establishment where you can recharge your batteries and just breathe. One of the highlights is that you don’t need to entertain your kids, as there is so much for them to do. An absolute must if you need a good rest as well as a good time.
