I don't review often but felt I needed to on this occasion. I had the opportunity of staying at Armana Resort in June 2014 with eight (8) other friends for a 30th Birthday long weekend. We had the four (4) bedroom penthouse and an extra single room booked for three nights. On arrival we went to park the car in... More

We stayed in apartment 303 (4 bedroom penthouse) at the Amarna for two nights in July 2014 for a girls weekend away. Tracey and Wayne met us at the car (it happened to be raining) with umbrellas and helped transport our luggage into the apartment. The lift opened up into the actual apartment and it was absolutely amazing, the view... More

Since potential guests may be looking to stay here for a special occasion and paying a lot of money for the privilege - I'm going to write a detailed review. In summary, it is an awesome location with nice rooms. However the attitude of the 'manager' leaves much to be desired. We booked the penthouse and an extra 1 bedroom... More

Kitchen well equipped, furnishings fantastic and beautiful bathrooms. Loved the jet spa in the top bedroom. Pool and spa were brilliant, plenty of comfy sunbeds and shades. Loved that the resort provided... More

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights and both considered the apartment itself to be really special. The attention to detail in putting this place together is fantastic....and the view is amazing! We were able to anchor our boat right on the beach which made it easy for hubby to go fishing early in... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom penthouse (room 302) for 5 nights in January 2014. The view from the apartment is spectacular, looking right across Port Stephens. We were lucky enough to watch dolphins frolicking in the water from our balcony. The apartments are situated on Dutchies Beach, a gorgeous little white sand beach which is perfect for both young...

From first stepping foot onto the Amarna resort, we were greeted by the friendly Tracey who escorted us to our 4 bedroom penthouse. Upon entering the apartment, we couldn't stop saying "wow" and continued to do so for our whole stay. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and always greeted with a warm smile, The apartment itself is worth... More

My partner and I recently spent four nights in Nelson Bay and the beautiful Amarna Resort. As soon as we stepped foot inside our luxury apartment (we were on the first floor), we were gobsmacked. The apartment is fitted out with amazing electronics including an in-built coffee machine, sensor lights in the bathroom, heated towel racks, spa bath, TV's in... More
