Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | ESCAPE -

It’s said that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but, let’s be hon­est, no one ever books a ho­tel or re­sort with­out first look­ing at pho­tos of the ac­com­mo­da­tion on the in­ter­net.

But when it comes to New South Wales’ most idyl­lic hol­i­day spot, look no fur­ther than Oaks Pa­cific Blue Re­sort.

The re­sort’s 480-me­tre pris­tine pool en­cir­cles the en­tire re­sort and it is noth­ing short of mag­nif­i­cent.

Sur­rounded by lush, trop­i­cal gar­dens, Oaks Pa­cific Blue Re­sort com­prises lux­u­ri­ous stu­dio, one- and two-bed­room apart­ments, some with pop­u­lar swim-outs, or two- and three-bed­room town­houses with their own pri­vate plunge pools.

There’s also the choice of a pre­mium ho­tel room for those who want some­thing a bit more cosy. But if spa­cious is what you are after, the apart­ments all have full kitchen fa­cil­i­ties, mod­ern decor, re­verse-cy­cle air-con­di­tion­ing and di­rect ac­cess to the piece de re­sis­tance – the iconic pool.

This tran­quil re­sort also fea­tures lush grass ar­eas to relax and read in the sun, heated spa, 25-me­tre heated lap pool, gym and ten­nis courts.

Suited to cou­ples, fam­i­lies and even large groups, Oaks Pa­cific Blue Re­sort is only a short drive to the pic­turesque en­clave of Nelson Bay.

And while it may not be right by the sea­side, the re­sort lays claim to one of the largest swim­ming pools in Aus­tralia – so why would you need to leave?
