This resort is a gem overlooking Nelson Bay. The apartment is tastefully furnished and amenities comprehensive. The views of the 25 heated pool, spa and bay were breathtaking. We were warmly greeted on arrival and were given a tour of the apartment and were given information on the surrounding attractions. We felt at home immediately and could have stayed a... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago with a friend in a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor. We were looking for a peaceful break so the no visitors policy wasn't an issue at all for us. The apartment was large, luxuriously fitted out and the view was amazing. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful... More

We had a 2 day stay in September 2014. We found the Armarna Resort to be a genuine 5 star luxury unit. The units are very large with all quality fittings. The beach location and proximity to Nelson Bay is very much a positive. Tracey was extremely helpful and friendly assisting with dining out info and making the booking reservations.... More

We stayed at the Armarna resort for three nights and had a thoroughly wonderful time. The resort is very tranquil and has a great outlook over Port Stephens. Wayne & Tracey were very welcoming, efficient and discreet. The apartments were spacious, well appointed and luxurious. Highly recommended.

Amarna Resort is all luxury. Apartments are sensational and views are even better. Fantastic lap pool and right on Dutchies Beach. Short walk to Nelson Bay and handy driving distance to most places in Port Stephens. Strictly no visitors which although maybe not popular, it does add to the certainty of your stay and not being overrun in and around... More
