“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Well what can I say. What a fabulous place. Close to beach, our own heated plunge pool. Beautiful surrounds. Our own frogs and ducks. Lap pool, gym sauna, tennis court. All good stuff. Unfortunately you are not able to swim after sunset which upset the kids a bit. The only thing that I can say against our stay was that the mattresses were very hard and I ended up with sore back each morning. The home was spacious and very well maintained. Surrounding gardens were perfectly looked after. The staff, reception and cleaners were very friendly and helpful. The cleaners were very funny. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Definitely get one with a plunge pool.

Hello Megankelly65

thank you for your review. The mattresses are of a very good quality. I guess some people like a soft feel and some a firm one. I will monitor guests comments re the mattresses.

Kind regards

My husband, 15 year old,11 year and I stayed at the Aqua Resort for the first time. Stunning is one of the many words used on walking into our home for the weekend. Modern living, sleek, Top quality Appliances, Open Fire, Bed fit for a queen! The gardens and surrounding areas are well manicured, clean and well kept. There's even a possum home in the trees too. Tennis court, Pool,Gym and steam room kept us occupied. My only wish for this resort is a restaurant and bar area, but said that we found places to eat. We all agreed this was the best accommodation we have ever stayed in and would definately be returning in the near future, in fact I could quite easily do a home swap if they agreed!!! Well done also to the lovely staff, and especially the cleaners.

This is a top class resort, modern, well appointed and just delightful. This resort is 30-40 villas of high standard with 2 bedrooms available for us but geared for 8 guests. Just up the road was a great seafood shop and we were able to enjoy freshly cooked Marron and prawns that we cooked on the vola's BBQ.

Room Tip: Great for 2 couples as the rooms are well separated and. Have on bathrooms

If you are looking for a place to stay that is relaxing and spacious and which caters for all types of travellers; from couples to families, this is the place to try.

Our 3 day stay at Aqua was our 2nd in the last 3 months, and was just as impressive as the first. I thought I would write another review to reiterate how superb the accommodation is. On this occassion we stayed in a 4 bedroom Grove house. On the first visit we went as a couple but this time we took my parents and sister after we raved how great the resort was. Even with the extra people the house was still spacious. The decor is timeless and luxurious, the appliances are top quality, whilst the cleansliness of the house could again not be faulted. The location is perfect as it is on the beach, close to Busselton if you need to get things from the shops but is also located close to the wineries for day visits. I would also like to mention that the office staff were all lovely. We had a few issues with the internet and phone and on the occassions I went to pester them they were nothing but friendly and helpful.

My parents and sister have decided to plan another visit to Aqua, but this time they will be asking my other brothers and their families to also join us.




The photos that fellow travellers take do not do justice to the spaciousness Unless you experience the resort yourself

Thank you so much for taking the time to again write a review on The Aqua Resort. Our cleaners do a fantastic job. It is my view that they have the hardest job with the least appreciation in the resort. I will make sure they are aware of your kind comments and we look forward to your next visit.

Stayed for a weekend mid day Friday to Sunday. Upon arrival we were met by the manager who showed us to our luxurious spacious apartment.with parking for 4 cars and our own plung pool opposite the main pool spa and gymnasium and overlooking the beach.The grounds were well maintained with manicured gardens lots of shady trees and native plants with lots of bird life .One day whilst sitting on the balcony we were visited by a willie wagtail who sat on the railing chirping away.The interior was spacious with beautiful furniture and decor .We tried the plunge pool which was heated and spotlessly clean.
We were fortunate to have an ensuite room with huge bed room with quality furnishings drapes and a huge modern bath and shower.
The huge king size bed was very comfortable with very soft pillows .We had a great nights sleep.
The kitchen was well furnished with great refridgerator,wine fridge dishwasher and crockery cutlery and cooking appliances to meet all our family requirements.
The balcony had a great outdoor setting with views over Geographe Bay .We utilized the balcony to have breakfast and our pre dinner drinks.A barbeque with own sink was located up one end of the balcony.
The resort backs onto Geographe bay with access to a great walking/jogging cycling track which we made use of each morning.It was a spectacular area to walk with great views .The beach was lovely and clean and several people were catching tailor and whiting..
The manager and his wife provided details of great places to visit and we enjoyed a great family lunch on Saturday at a brewery .We played on the beautiful inexpensive golf course in Busselton.
We were saddened to leave this superb 5 star resort on Sunday. We will definately return to this resort which exceeded our expectactions.Thank you to the staff for a great weekend. One of the best resorts that we have stayed in around the world.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking Geographe Bay superb views

Just spent a couple of nights with family members at the Aqua Resort in Busselton and came away very impressed. Being situated between Caves Road and the beautiful Geographe Bay the location is ideal. It presents as a nice peaceful area with well designed and cared for gardens with many shady trees. We had a beachfront villa and were able to enjoy the view across the gardens and swimming pool to the ocean. The villas are well designed with excellent fit out. They have all the facilities you require and sitting out on the balcony enjoying a drink and some nibbles with family members was a most enjoyable experience. The managers Grant and Cathy could not do enough for us and when we had a minor tuning problem with the TV Grant was only too happy to attend and solve the problem. This resort is extremely well located for access to the many wineries and restaurants in the area as well as the very scenic coastline and forest areas of this south-west corner of Western Australia. Although our family group was from Western Australia I am sure that for anyone from the other States of Australia or overseas they would find this a very pleasurable experience and good value for money.

Room Tip: The ocean front villas are the way to go and the walk along the sea front path is a magic experience...

I have stayed in a number of luxury resorts in the South West of WA and NSW and this was exceptional. We stayed in the two story beachfront apartments overlooking pool and the ocean - just magic. Amenities excellent and heaps of room for 12 people. The grounds with flowering kangaroo paws, lots of native plants and wonderful gum and pepper trees provided shade, seclusion and the beauty of the West Australian bush. Plunge pools were an added bonus on warmer days. Grant and his team keep the resort immaculately clean, very well maintained and were quick to respond to any requests to make our stay even more memorable. Aqua appears to be a well kept secret in this fabulous location within the wine region of the South West and we plan to visit again soon.

Room Tip: Two story villas overlooking the ocean and pool - quiet and fabulous views.
