Chase the winter sun with Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ out of city specials

09 Jul 2013

It’s time to escape a dreary city winter, pack your favourite pair of bikinis or boardies (wishful thinking never hurts!) and round up family and friends for an all-Aussie coastal escape. Some of our most beautiful beaches are beckoning, and as a leader in self-contained apartments in stunning resort destinations, Oaks Hotels & Resorts is inviting travellers to soak-up the winter sunshine from a different vantage point.

For a limited time, holidaymakers can visit Glenelg’s golden beaches and surrounding South Australian wine regions; witness an unforgettable display of marine life in Port Stephens as the whales and dolphins begin their northward migration; or kick back in Queensland’s balmy Sunshine Coast – starting from $99 per night!

Boasting an absolute beachfront location, Oaks Plaza Pier in Glenelg, South Australia is just a 20-minute drive from the heart of Adelaide and offers unparalleled views over Holdfast Bay. Book a spacious one-bedroom apartment featuring a contemporary full kitchen from just $119 per night or $149 per night on Saturdays (minimum two night stay) and explore Glenelg’s charming surrounds. Try the popular Jetty Road shopping precinct, myriad of waterfront restaurants and cafes or, for those who dare, a dip in the ocean! Some of South Australia’s most acclaimed wineries are also just a short drive away.  

Head across to Australia’s east coast and find yourself in the whale-watching capital of Port Stephens. And providing your front row seat to all the action is Oaks Pacific Blue Resort, just minutes from the Nelson Bay marina. Offering a choice of contemporary apartments, choose a studio lagoon room from just $99 per night and receive a bonus upgrade to a studio swim-out room; or book a two-bedroom lagoon apartment from $179 per night and receive an upgrade to a two-bedroom lagoon spa apartment. The resort boasts one of Australia’s largest swimming pools as well as heated spas and steam room (perfect for winter), gymnasium and floodlit tennis courts.
Oaks Seaforth Resort, perched on the Sunshine Coast’s Alexandra Headlands, is also offering exceptional ‘out of city’ specials, with one bedroom apartments starting from $99 per night or two bedroom apartments from $149 per night (Sun-Thurs) or $169 per night (Fri-Sat). With surf clubs, restaurants, grassy parks and patrolled beaches on its doorstep, and famed tourist attractions like Underwater World and Australia Zoo just a short drive away, Oaks Seaforth Resort is the perfect winter ‘stay and play’ destination.
