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,... More

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.

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.
