Reviewed 8 February 2017

We were looking for a comfortable quite place to stay for a few days. The Armana provided this. The quality of the building, its fittings and facilities are all of exceptionally high quality. This is matched by the attention to cleaning and the courtesy of the managers.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are more convenient for the pool but the higher levels affort better views of...

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Amarna Resort and we have loved it both times. This time we flew into Newcastle, picked up a hire car and 30 minutes later we arrived. Easy. The room is very comfortable and we just step outside our door and there's the beautiful pool. Down a few steps and through the gate to the beach. Works for everyone. The path outside the resort allows us to walk into Nelson Bay. Just a 15 minute leisurely stroll Luxury in every way. We will definitely return. The perfect relaxing holiday.

A family stay last school holidays. Views and apartment was outstanding . What lets this resort down is the feeling that your constantly being watched. We had friends visit , not to stay or use the facilities but a drink in out unit. They were greeted with hostility and asked to vacate the property. The owner then let herself into our apartment (without our consent) and told me not to sneak them in another way. No privacy and spa was not working most of our stay. No noise allowed . We wont be returning.

What happens in the first few minutes often sets the tone for the whole stay. This was certainly our experience. We arrived well before the check in time, after a good run to Nelson Bay. Unfortunately, we could have access because the suite was still being cleaned after the last guests - we found out later that the cleaning is very thorough!
When Tracy noticed that we had cool bags full of food for Christmas in the boot of our car, she immediately offered to take all of perishables into the suite and put them in the fridge/freezer as appropriate. This was a huge help to us, as it was a very warm day. She then told us the best place in Nelson Bay to get our oysters and prawns, so we were all set up by the time the suite was cleaned.
All rooms have a great view over Dutchies beach and the walk to Nelson Bay's CBD is only 0.8km along the coastal track
We had a magical 5 days and have already booked two more stays at the Amarna Resort in 2017.

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
