This is the second time that we have stayed at the Amarna Resort and we have loved it both times. This time we flew into Newcastle, picked up a hire car and 30 minutes later we arrived. Easy. The room is very comfortable and we just step outside our door and there's the beautiful pool. Down a few steps and...

A family stay last school holidays. Views and apartment was outstanding . What lets this resort down is the feeling that your constantly being watched. We had friends visit , not to stay or use the facilities but a drink in out unit. They were greeted with hostility and asked to vacate the property. The owner then let herself into...

What happens in the first few minutes often sets the tone for the whole stay. This was certainly our experience. We arrived well before the check in time, after a good run to Nelson Bay. Unfortunately, we could have access because the suite was still being cleaned after the last guests - we found out later that the cleaning is...

Apartment is 5 star Amenities are 5 star Location is 5 star but where Amarna falls down is its stiff management. Noise not permitted. High surveillance. It should be listed as an old folks home. My granny would love it. Recommend for over 70's or boring farts.

Our family came to Amarna not knowing what to expect. On entering apartment 302 we immediately thought we had died and gone to heaven. The quality of the interior of the apartment is world class. All 3 generations could relax in peace and enjoy eachother's company without being distracted, enjoying the breath-taking view of Nelson's Bay. I would highly recommend...

Wow, what a place only 3 hours from Sydney. We travelled here with a family of 6. Huge Appartments with great appliances. The view over Port Stephens is amazing. It's a great location, right on Duchmans Beach. Excellent walking track towards town and the opposite way towards Soldiers Point. We saw Koalas in the trees along the walking track and...

What a wonderfully relaxing spot. Our room had direct access to the pool and the resort basically sits on the beach. Paradise in little 'ol Nelson Bay. Well furnished and designed, all the staff and management were very friendly and welcoming. You can literally hear your body slowing down in order to savour the experience. The only negative was that,...

Had high hopes booking this resort and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful apartment with a breathtaking view looking straight out onto the heated pool and spa and Dutchman's beach. Modern appliances with ample amounts of storage. Very relaxed environment and loved having the option of borrowing kayaks and paddle boards (shame there were only a few to be shared around for all...

Our first night was lovely. Quiet and peaceful in our own touch of paradise. With a pool level unit the peace was shattered a little on the next day when more guests arrived. The rooms are luxurious and well appointed. Extras like the pool, spa and BBQ area add to the experience.
