This is a beautiful room in a fantastic location. Very comfy bed, nice kitchenette. nice breakfast and coffee. we loved watermark, we will definitely come back. We would have loved a newer iPod dock though, but this is a small problem for an otherwise perfect stay

Thanks for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We've only recently taken over management of the Watermark and are in the process of reviewing some of the IT/AV equipment as I agree some of it is a bit dated. Hopefully the iPod station will be new and improved next time you come stay. More

My husband and I have spent 12 days here over Christmas and New Years. Wow. This place has breathtaking views of the beach, the one bedroom unit is smallish but has everything you need- from kitchen to beach chairs to umbrellas etc. It's beautifully appointed - I love the white marble bathroom and the relaxed, beachy furnishings.

Watermark at Wategos is just a beautiful place to stay, simply breathtaking. The beach is one of the best in Australia. The rooms are private and very comfortable with a real touch of class. I want to revisit and highly recommend to anyone that enjoys quality.

We stayed in one of the beachfront suites and were really happy with the Watermark, check-in was easy and the room was very clean and nicely presented. Plus you cant beat the location! My only criticism (and this is really grasping at straws!) was that the room was smaller than what I was expecting. I would definitely recommend this place,... More
