There are 77 rooms divided throughout 7 buildings, built into the hillside on various levels. The buildings themselves contain three levels of accommodation, meaning that those on the top floor need to climb two flights of stairs. Three categories of accommodation exist: standard (ground floor), Jacuzzi suites (first floor) and roof suites (top floor), each with a terrace (standard rooms) or balcony (Jacuzzi and roof suites).
Standard rooms feature tile floors and simple décor (white walls and crisp white bed linen) topped off with navy blue and orange accents (light fittings and cushions, etc.). The open plan rooms are clean, well-lit and feature a sitting area with sofa bed and huge flat screen television. We loved the very modern black-tiled bathroom complete with enormous shower cubicle for two (double rain shower heads).
The roof suites are found on the upper level of each block and feature a sloping wooden ceiling and open plan bedroom and living area. They are not as spacious as the Jacuzzi suites but they are clean and bright, like the other room categories at Nicholas Heights. Even if you don't get the huge bathroom with double rain shower, there is a generous balcony offering the best views in the house.
The Jacuzzi suites (there are 39) were our favourite; bright, immaculate and incredibly spacious, they boast not only sea views but a sunken Jacuzzi in the bedroom. At the entrance is a comfortable living area with access to a furnished balcony, and what is at first glance a 'kitchenette' - however there is no stove or sink making it just a kitchen bench with tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge and an icemaker. The rooms are decorated in creamy neutral shades with touches of bright orange. A huge window curves around the Jacuzzi and provides wonderful views. Meanwhile, the bathrooms are in the same style as those seen in the standard rooms and contain a large shower cubicle with rain shower for two.
Although the Jacuzzi suites are luxurious and comfortable we did have a few gripes: during our stay there were some problems getting hot water on more than once occasion (shower +Jacuzzi); the large flat screen TV is in the living area, therefore on the other side of the room and not ideal for watching TV in bed; the flimsy curtains let the light flood in every morning (not great for those sleep-ins); not to mention the use of the Jacuzzi at night when those same curtains become practically transparent...
