We recently attended our son's wedding at Jonahs.  What an amazing place.
The wedding was beautiful, memories will stay with us for a lifetime. Exceptional appointment s in our room, the view from the jacuzzi sensational, terrace and restaurant facilities outstanding, food exquisite.

The way in which the Jonah's staff conducted themselves was amazing so professional and their attention to detail was outstanding, from organising to pick up our guests not staying at Jonah's in their bus, the driver contacted our guests to confirm what time they would be picked up, they were contacted when the driver was leaving Jonah's and then once again when they were 5 minutes from there destination, they were amazed at the service they received, and really felt apart of the celebration.

We could not have asked for a more friendly place to stay,  we were made to feel like it was a home away from home. So contact Jonah's now to put you and your family on "The road to happiness". The fiscal amount you invest in Jonah's is a small price to pay for quality service, friendliness, and the ocean is your oyster.

Stayed: February 2012

Dear Kate H,

Thank you for your review of Jonahs Whale Beach.

It was an absolute pleasure hosting Daniel and Caras' wedding day. We are ecstatic that their road to happiness began at Jonahs!

We hope to see them again at Jonahs soon.

First time staying at Jonah's celebrating our 34th. The best venue we have been to 34 yrs. The hotel was relaxing & inviting from the time we arrivved. All staff treated us like family. The view from our balcony overlooking whlae beach beautiful. The meal and the sevice was excellent with the semillions knowledge of wines great. We will be going back.

Room Tip: Wear your sunglasses for beakfast.

This hotel & restaurant is truley special We got married here 6 years ago & have been coming back ever since. It's just gorgeous. A great place to relaxhands nothing. The food (dinner) was a little disappointing but ther service, views and atmosphere made up for it. Breakast is fantastic. I would definitely recommend Jonah's, it's the best place I have stayed in Australia.

Years ago Jonah's USED to be amazing but returned there recently and it is not a pinch on what it used to be. I am so disappointed!
Arrogant, poor service and lack of customer service to name of the few faux pars- everything has been left to slide... but the worst thing is the new management really dont care about their clientele.
I feel very sad that this lovely little place has declined to such a degree.
Dont waste your money

I am very surprised at the complaint above and it is very difficult to fix issues when they are not specific. Our focus at Jonahs is absolutely customer based with every effort made to ensure the best possible experience.

In the complaint above it says that “Years ago Jonahs USED to be amazing”. All I can respond with is that...

Years ago-Jonahs did not have new accommodation with 11 Ocean Retreats with views to die for.

Years ago-Jonahs did not have a Chef who had obtained 3 Hats and a full brigade of 15 full time chefs cooking outstanding food.

Years ago-Jonahs did not have an international award winning wine list with over 1000 different wines to choose from and two highly qualified Sommeliers to serve them.

Years ago-Jonahs was not voted as Australias Best Luxury Coastal Hotel (as we were last year)

I booked the Seaplane Dinner Package for my partner's birthday and we really did have a marvellous time from start to finish. While our dinner was marvellous (especially the organic hen-egg entree), I have to say that our highlight was spending the afternoon sitting out on the lawn; drinking champagne and scoffing oysters while smoking, gossiping and taking in the magnificent view. I know that by the time we got to our table for dinner, we were a bit giggly and loud but nobody gave us eyes of judgement.
