Amarna Resort
Ranked #2 of 5 Nelson Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 December 2016

Apartment is 5 star
Amenities are 5 star
Location is 5 star but where Amarna falls down is its stiff management. Noise not permitted. High surveillance. It should be listed as an old folks home. My granny would love it.
Recommend for over 70's or boring farts.

Stayed: November 2016, travelled with friends

Our family came to Amarna not knowing what to expect. On entering apartment 302 we immediately thought we had died and gone to heaven. The quality of the interior of the apartment is world class. All 3 generations could relax in peace and enjoy eachother's company without being distracted, enjoying the breath-taking view of Nelson's Bay. I would highly recommend for those who are looking for a quality holiday to remember!

Love,

Wow, what a place only 3 hours from Sydney. We travelled here with a family of 6. Huge Appartments with great appliances. The view over Port Stephens is amazing. It's a great location, right on Duchmans Beach. Excellent walking track towards town and the opposite way towards Soldiers Point. We saw Koalas in the trees along the walking track and Dolphins off the balcony. There is a huge pool and spa in the complex which is awesome for kids- you have the choice of great pool or quiet beach. Wayne and his wife are very helpful in providing free sea kayaks and what every you need. Every time we asked for our unit to be services it was done at the drop of a hat. This is a magic place for a family unwind and we will definitely come back.

What a wonderfully relaxing spot. Our room had direct access to the pool and the resort basically sits on the beach. Paradise in little 'ol Nelson Bay. Well furnished and designed, all the staff and management were very friendly and welcoming. You can literally hear your body slowing down in order to savour the experience. The only negative was that, when we sat on the sofa on our verandah, the wall and planting meant you did not have a view. No biggie as we just went and sat around the pool. Not sure if there's a similar issue with apartments above ground level. Suggestion to the owners: buy a high outdoor bar table and high stools to overcome this issue.

Had high hopes booking this resort and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful apartment with a breathtaking view looking straight out onto the heated pool and spa and Dutchman's beach. Modern appliances with ample amounts of storage. Very relaxed environment and loved having the option of borrowing kayaks and paddle boards (shame there were only a few to be shared around for all guests). Definitely hope to be back.
