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.

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.

Enjoyed a magnificent 2 night stay with my wife at this superb resort. Our apartment had a modern decor. The main living room had an expanse of 6 metres of floor to ceiling sliding glass door panels which opened to an ample deck with lounge. The sunsets, over the bay, from the balcony were stunning. The kitchen had Miele alliances-...

We chose Amarna Resort for an extended family get-together. It was a great success with the four families getting together to spend time before the mad Christmas Season. All the kitchens, bathrooms were well equipped, from the 1 bed apartment thru to the three bed apartment. The views were amazing but also the apartments themselves were beautifully furnished again from...
