Central Coast Luxury Escapes
With natural beauty, quiet seclusion and hidden gems, the Central Coast of NSW is a wonderful destination for a luxurious escape. You’ll be delighted with the elegant places to stay by beautiful beaches and magnificent national parks, and in sylvan charm on the edge of ethereal bushland.
There are rejuvenating day spas amid the splendour, too. Pamper yourself with exquisite skin care products and spa treatments, from native plant extracts to heavenly therapeutic massages. You can also experience outdoor adventures, as well as enjoy rounds of golf on splendidly kept golf courses.
There are acclaimed restaurants such as Pearls on the Beach, featured in The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide. At the boutique hotels, luxury golf resorts and seaside retreats are more delectable restaurants, and stroll along pretty waterfront esplanades for cafes and alfresco dining.
In the hinterland is eco-retreat Noonaweena, a lovely spot for weekend getaways, weddings and conferences. Unwind at the resort’s day spa, in a tranquil environment ideal for rejuvenation. Like all the luxury Central Coast stay options, Noonaweena is an easy drive from Sydney and Newcastle.
Near the Bouddi National Park at Killcare are two boutique hotels, Bells at Killcare and Pretty Beach House. The Bells day spa has holistic spa experiences. At the Pretty Beach House, the vistas from the rooms and infinity pool are breathtaking. You’ll find the dining impeccable at both hotels as well.
For a romantic getaway, the refined Avoca Valley Bed and Breakfast is set in ravishing gardens, and stunning Avoca Beach and rolling waves are a short drive away. Just north in Terrigal and next to the gorgeous Terrigal Beach are the Crowne Plaza Terrigal and the Star of the Sea Luxury Apartments.
At Kims Beachside Retreat, in Toowoon Bay, are luxury bungalows by the white sandy beach and sparkling blue bay. North of The Entrance is the Pullman Magenta Shores Resort, which has a golf course. Golfers will also love staying at the Mercure Kooindah Waters Central Coast, near Wyong.
