Four of us stayed 3 nights in a 2bd pool view room (57). Apartment was nice and spacious, beds were really firm, woke up with sore backs. there needs to be block out drapes in the bedroom, as there is light coming in around the blind that illuminates the room, makes it really hard to sleep. Lots of noise from... More

Four friends had a 3 night luxury escape here, the price was good, the two bedroom apartment was fine with a view over the bay, we organised our own meals, and cooked something's in the kitchen which was well appointed. The furniture was a bit dated in fact it could have been bought from "Fantastic Furniture" . We did not... More

We have stayed there for three nights in October 2014. Overall we are very pleased with our stay. The apartment was well-appointed, with a huge living area and decent-sized bedrooms. Kitchen was fully equipped - dishwasher, microwave, kettle, all the utensils you could possibly need, glasses etc. It felt like home away from home. ) Everything was clean, but IMHO... More

We had booked a three night stay at Mantra Aqua Hotel in a 3 bedroom apartment through Luxury Escapes. We were very pleased with the deal, and were really looking forward to our visit. When we checked in we were given the keys to our room, and when we went inside our room we noticed it was only a two... More

I am always a little cynical with these "great deal" websites, so I entered the market cautiously after much research. We purchased this deal quite some time ago and have only now have synchronised family schedules to have the time off together. First impressions were very good with friendly staff and clean neat layout. Security is good too with access... More

We stayed at Mantra Aqua on a Luxury Escapes deal. It was an absolute bargain. Three nights were difficult to get on dates thats suited us but we ended up taking a Sunday - Wednesday but had to pay an upgrade fee because the room we'd booked via Luxury Escapes wasnt available. Read the fine print. The room was excellent.... More

Booked a Luxury Escape at Aqua Mantra in Nelson Bay but arrived as the rain started and it only got worse over the next 2 days. The staff were great and when we lost power they provided a lantern so we could have dinner & play Trivial Pursuit by candle & lantern light. The 2 bedroom apartment was very comfortable,... More

Felt very homely being a self catered apartment, very large and spacious inside. Three large bedrooms with two bathrooms. Modern kitchen with everything you need. The location was walking distance to the shops and heart of Nelsons Bay.
