The Anchorage wins Luxury Coastal Resort and Luxury Guest House at World Luxury Hotel Awards

Newly renovated property The Anchorage has won Luxury Coastal Resort and Luxury Guest House of the year, at the 11th Annual World Luxury Hotel Awards held at the resplendent Klum Hotel St Moritz in Switzerland.


A recognised global organisation providing luxury hotels with recognition for their world-class facilities and service excellence provided to guests, the World Luxury Hotel Awards provides true recognition to global, continental and country luxury hotels across 50 different countries.

A Global Winner of Luxury Guest House for the second time as well as Regional Winner in the Luxury Coastal Resort category, The Anchorage is the only Australian property to receive global recognition and one out of only five Australian properties to be celebrated as part of the 2017 awards.

“It’s a pleasure to be acknowledged among such a prestigious group of properties worldwide and is truly a testament to the tireless efforts from all those involved in the renovation and the relaunch of The Anchorage, including the team here who are focused on delivering a first-class experience for our guests,” said General Manager Ali Hnaien.

Set on the idyllic waters of Port Stephens in New South Wales, The Anchorage has under-gone an 18-month, multi-million-dollar renovation, modernising the hotel into a class of its own as one of Australia’s finest beachfront holiday destinations.

Majestically positioned where the Pacific Ocean meets the Great Southern Land, The Anchorage is one of Australia’s most inspirational seaside destinations, with eight individual Hamptons’ style structures sitting perfectly between the cliff side and the ocean. Conveniently located just 2.5 hours north of Sydney and 30 minutes from Newcastle Airport, the hotel and spa offers relaxed waterfront accommodation, beautiful dining, leisure and conference spaces.

For the renovation, The Anchorage’s parent company The Wests Group collaborated with Andrew O’Connell of renowned firm Altis Architecture, creating a space that embraces the United States’ East Coast Hamptons aesthetic, injecting the property with a neutral palette, complemented by water-worn blues and teals, with hints of rich timber and warm stone textures throughout.

Among the property’s newly-added world-class facilities include iconic restaurants The Wild Herring and The Galley Kitchen with alfresco and indoor dining; Hemingway’s Bar showcasing some of the world’s rarest and unusual whiskies with tasting experiences available; tranquil retreat Spa Lucca with luxury treatments, international products, spa and steam facilities; two pools including an adults-only infinity pool; and fitness centre with what is probably the world’s best view to work out to.

Boasting sunrise to sunset panoramic water views, the 80 luxuriously-appointed suites, ranging from spacious studios to one and two bed rooms, showcase chic resort-style interior styling, each with its own private balcony or terrace, luxurious king beds, upscale French amenities, boutique minibar, and a wealth of extras.
