“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

My friends and I recently stayed in a 2 bedroom villa at the resort. The "Wow" factor was certainly evident from the moment we opened the front door. It was so spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything you would ever need for a great holiday. We used our villa as a base to explore the region coming back to our accommodation in the afternoon just in time for a short walk to the beach or a dip in the pool before firing up the bbq in our private outdoor area. Would thoroughly recommend this resort to anyone who likes a touch of extravagance in their accommodation.

Hi San57_12 . Wow factor - spaciousness - extravagance are terms we hear time & again when people stay with us. And yes we are an ideal base to explore the beautiful south west region. It really is a wonderful part of the world.

We have just left the Aqua Resort after a 5 night stay with our family from the UK.
We stayed in one of the 4 bed houses and it was excellent.
The house was immaculate and beautifully presented.
We would definitely stay again and hope to soon.
It's a beautiful part of WA and it's location whilst out of Busselton centre is ideal for visiting dunsborough and margaret river.

My family and I stayed at Aqua Resort Busselton for 5 nights, and we had a lovely time. We had apartment #33, a Grove Plunge Pool apartment. It was very spacious (I think it can accommodate up to 8 people very comfortably). It had all the necessary amenities - flat screen TV, DVD Player, a very comfortable sofa and well-equipped kitchen. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable.

In terms of amenities at the resort itself, they had a large pool that was steps from the ocean, a small gym and a sauna/steam room. There was also a tennis court with AstroTurf. Although the resort does not have its own cafe/restaurant, it is well-located to take advantage of the restaurants just 50 meters walk away.

If I had to pick something negative to say about this resort, just 3small things:
1) The kitchen sink is too small for the ample kitchen.
2) The shower in the master bedroom could do with a shower screen.
3) Don't charge rental for lending tennis rackets out to guests, because cost per room night is already high.

Other than these, it was fantastic! Well done!

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment near the sea.

The Aqua Resort is a Luxury Experience. Top quality accommodation. Beautiful, spacious, modern with detail and thought to every inch of the property. Top quality fittings and funky furniture. Full kitchen with all the modern conveniences. Abundent glasses, plates and utensils. We stayed with our friends but the property would be perfect for families. We took advantage of the outdoor barbecue. Unfortunately the weather prevented us from taking a dip in our own private heated plunge pool. You really do get what you pay for. The Aqua Resort should also be proud of their staff. Reception were lovely and the cleaning staff should be congratulated. Number 13 was immaculately presented. Well Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Kristy K.

What a lovely review. Sorry we couldn't turn the weather on for you, some things just out of our control.

You are so right about our wonderful house keeping staff. They have the hardest job and receive the least thanks. I will meet with all the house keeping staff today and pass on your kind words.

Kristy K, thank you so much for taking the time to write your review.

Merry Christmas

There is not one bad thing I could say about the Aqua Resort! The rooms were modern and clean, the views are absolutely amazing and most of all the staff are the kindest people you will meet! It was an amazing experience being able to stay at the Aqua Resort during leavers, it made our whole leavers experience 10 times better! Thanks to the staff for taking us leavers in and for being just amazing people! I know I will be back!

Hi Rebecca N.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are happy to take leavers at The Aqua Resort. As you know we have boundaries in place and expect that they are not breached. I must say that the groups we had this year were amazing. Respectful, polite and engaging are just a couple of words to describe you guys.

If you are the future of this great country then we are in pretty good hands. On behalf of myself and all the staff at The Aqua Resort we wish you well for the future and thank you for being so well behaved.

Kind regards

The resort is still fairly new (about 3 years old) & we were very happy with accommodation standard & location. Booked a 2 bedroom villa with own lap pool for 3 nights & my hubby with my 2 young sons (aged 9 & 2) were really pleased. Everything was smooth from check in to check out. Price is quite expensive around $450 a night, especially when there is no daily housekeeping, in fact not too sure how often housekeeping is as for 3 days there was none for us. Kitchen well equipped with top notch Miele appliances & the laundry facilities are very handy as we wanted to minimise taking home more laundry work from the trip! I would certainly recommend this resort especially for its location, close to most great places to visit in Busselton, Vasse & Margaret River regions. I would certainly appreciate it more if daily housekeeping was added as standard service!

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 8 & it was well located within the resort as it's not too close to the bu...

Hi Ashton 168.

Thank you for writing your review. We are a fully self contained accommodation property and do not provide daily servicing of accommodation. If you are staying for seven days or more we will do a midstay service free of charge.

The Aqua Resort is located in a prime beach front position, quiet and within a short drive to all the Margaret River Region has to offer.

We hope to see you and your family at Aqua soon.

Stayed in a beautifully appointed villa last night. But... After a late night we were annoyed to be woken at about 5.30am by the sun streaming into our bedroom. Although the curtains cover just over half the lower part of the full height window, the top A frame window is only covered with a sun filtering screen. There was no way of shutting out the light. No possibility of having a sleep in after a wedding.

For such a beautiful villa that has been fitted out to such a high standard, it is more than disappointing that such a basic guest's need (sleep) has been overlooked. This problem was a talking point the next day with friends who had the same experience.

Recommendation to the Resort. Either fix the problem or supply guests with eye masks.

Room Tip: Bring you own eye mask or stay elsewhere if you want to sleep past sunrise.

Hi Jane G.

Thank you for writing your review. The developers of the Aqua resort designed the resort around the beautiful Peppy trees and have created a feeling of bringing these trees into the whole house. The screen you are referring to allows filtered light into the room whilst maintaining a view of the upper canopy of the trees. The trees are host to a variety of wildlife including birds and possums. Generally it is the birds that wake people up not the sun.

Kind regards
