Our family has been holidaying annually in Busselton/Margaret River/Pemberton for the last 15 yrs. To all other resorts in Busselton and the Geographe Bay region, pay attention.
The Aqua Resort, Busselton has raised the bar and set the standard. Already looking forward to our next visit. Grant and the team, great work and thank you.

Room Tip: Consider a villa with a private plunge pool, a really good option.

Our trip down south over the Australia Day long weekend will never be forgotten.
Aqua resort gave us the perfect platform for what will go down as one of the best weekends I have had in my life.
The 4 bedroom grove house (number 18) was perfect. It felt like you were the only one on the premise when inside. The gardens are immaculate.
The modern open plan living of the houses were very social friendly and the finishing touches were modern and practical.The pool area was great and the beach was pristine.

We were four young couples (25-30) and we made some noise during the trip with singing and dancing. No one complained. All the guests had respect and so did we.
There were a lot of kids running around but it didn't matter.
If you want to go and enjoy the south with maturity and class this is the place for you.

Room Tip: They are all good

Hi TomNay. Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. And what better place to celebrate the Australia Long Weekend. Our resort was fully booked and at capacity that weekend, and yet, as you pointed out, the houses maintain their privacy. And of course having the beautiful beaches of Geographe Bay at your doorstep is a bonus.

Beautiful private feeling house for a large group of 10, only 100m from the beach. Plenty of room, so we were not crowded at night time, and it was really helpful having 3 full bathrooms and a separate toilet when it was time to get ready to go out. Could not fault our stay there. This was my second time at Aqua and I will be back again I'm sure of it.

Hi RosieC9007. Thanks for your review. It is definitely the extra touches like plenty of space for everyone and ample bathrooms that make the difference between just a holiday and a truly relaxing holiday. We look forward to your 3rd stay and your 4th 5th 6th ..........

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
