Beach Club – oh so chic!

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is looking oh so chic in Sunday Life’s fashion shoot last weekend. A very tan model embodied the relaxed Yacht Club vibe of our Beach Club as she lazed across our venue soaking up the sun.  The edition was complimented by a shot of our fabulous Yabbie and Crab Chilli and Garlic Linguine that rivalled how delectable the model looked. We love the look of that!
