Shoal Bay Resort & Spa is the ultimate, award winning deluxe beachfront resort for families, couples and corporate guests alike featuring nearly 200 self contained apartments including a range of beachfront, waterview, pool view and executive style apartments. The Resort also offers four restaurants, five bars and the Aqua Spa wellbeing facility. It is also the rebirth of the historic Country Club Hotel, a legendary Australian icon on the East Coast and a popular holiday memory of visitors to Port Stephens.
The Resort itself overlooks the white sandy beach of Shoal Bay towards the breathtaking volcanic Tomaree headlands. Shoal Bay boasts walking and cycling tracks, flat water family friendly beaches as well as three unspoilt National Park surf beaches. For a more energetic outdoor experience, a paved pathway to the top of Mount Tomaree affords unparalleled views of Port Stephens, all within a ten minute stroll of the Resort. Port Stephens is also the largest Marine Park in NSW with over 160 resident dolphins and 7000 Humpback Whales passing just off the headland on migration each year.
Shoal Bay is situated in the greater Port Stephens region with a radiant waterway, two and a half times larger than Sydney Harbour. Other remarkable features include the largest continual moving sand mass in NSW – Stockton Beach, the world famous Hunter Valley – one of Australia’s best known winemaking regions and the historic city of Newcastle.
Dining options range from the award winning Catch at Shoal Bay, showcasing fresh local produce with breathtaking views across the bay, the casual relaxed atmosphere of Sandyfoot Café & Bar, the iconic Promenade Dining Room and family friendly Mermaids Bar & Grill. The legendary Country Club Hotel is highly regarded as the entertainment capital of Port Stephens as well as one of the most popular watering holes on the East Coast of Australia.
The indulgent Aqua Spa wellbeing facility includes three unique Thalassotherapy mineral spa pools, twelve treatment rooms, a group treatment room and an extensive menu of treatments from hydrotherapy to massage. Aqua Spa’s Thalassotherapy mineral spa pools have tapped into the pristine salt waters of Shoal Bay and the mineral rich waters of the surrounding sand beds to offer treatments with the elements necessary for life – water, oxygen and light. The Aqua Spa is modeled on facilities normally found only in Europe and is unique to the Southern Hemisphere.
