To celebrate our final days of childlessness my husband and I went on many babymoons to exotic and stunning locations - Amarna was my favourite. We stayed in apartment 103 and Tracy handled our booking and stay. The apartment is stunning and large. It had every single thing you need on a vacation and just felt like our home in... More

Armana is a wonderful private resort with great facilities. Heated pool and spa with a view across the water was just terrific. The resort is small and the beautiful rooms are very private. The managers are attentive and welcoming and were invisible other than to perform the management of guests and the upkeep of the resort. I would recommend Armana... More

Armano resort is in an ideal location and the apartments are amazing and superbly fitted out with high quality fittings and appliances. However that's where the superlatives finish. Other reviewers have made numerous and legitimate complaints about Gestapo like managers Tracey and Wayne. Unfortunately research shows that they are actually the the owners, so don't expect any change soon. Other... More

When my wife informed me that she wanted to go to Armana Resort in Nelson Bay I was curious. A resort....in Port Stephens....I don't think so! She had been before with a girlfriend and was keen for a family holiday there. Ok....i'll play along. Well it is a pretty hot place. Perched on the perfect corner of Dutchman's Beach, Amarna...

We have just returned from 2 idyllic weeks at this superb resort. From the moment of arrival when the jaw-dropping view is revealed from the apartment, it is totally apparent the pride Managers, Tracey and Wayne, take in maintaining their well-deserved 5-star status. They were excellent hosts, where nothing was too much trouble. Everything about Amarna Resort is luxury, serenity... More

We stayed in apartment 204 with a beautiful large balcony and perfect ocean view. This was a short stay with my elderly mother and was a perfect location for us as just sitting on the balcony and watching Dolphins, pelican families and snorkelers was enough entertainment.

When you pay more money than usual for a special occasion , you don't always get what you pay for. Well at this place , you do. Really well designed accomodation run by people who obviously care a lot about what they do. Beautiful location, natural surroundings, high standard and low key.
