In partnership with Bard on the Beach and supported by Woollahra Council, we’re hosting live theatrical performances of William Shakespeare’s timeless farce A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Robertson Park (adjacent to the hotel).

The stage is set under the grand fig tree in Robertson Park with stunning Sydney skyline views. Bring your own blanket, beach towel, cushion or folding chair along and get comfy; sit back, relax and enjoy the show!

Simply enter here for your chance to WIN!

Watsons Bay Sailors


Meet the Watsons Bay Sailors – a team of local lads we sponsor in their quest to take out the TRL championship! Here’s the latest low down….

Another good win last Sunday 20 March to the Watsons Bay Sailors to put the team in a great position in Sydney’s A grade TRL competition as they head into the business part of the season. Despite numerous players missing due to injuries and representative duties (Jono Pitchford, Brendan Kruger, Tim Broomham), the team managed to lodge another convincing win. Ben Gorrie stepped up again from the junior leagues for his 2nd impressive performance in the top grade as Mat Marchesi was relegated following an off field incident. Chris Cardell made solid metres through the middle as usual, while a piece of wizardry late in the second half from Nicko Knoll crushed any hope of an opposition come back, placing a pin point cross field kick to a flying Andrew Mackson who regathered and put the icing on the cake. Rabs, Peter Wyrens, Will Rafter, Jeremy Evans and Mat Strawson offered patches of brilliance at times, but a long and tiring season may be starting to show in some of these key players…something that management will have to look at as the team heads into the finals. Brandon Carter performed well on the bench!

Join the crowds this Sunday afternoon at Centennial Park, followed by post match parade and celebrations at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel – the Watsons Bay Sailors “social” training ground! The boys are paparazzi friendly, so don’t be shy!

Chocolate Truffles | Fifty Shades of Bay


CONFESSION: We love a man who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty! Tempt your temptress this Valentines Day with your own two hands…

We’ve had Chef James Dorton getting down and dirty in the kitchen, tempering chocolate and hand rolling deliciously smooth and decadent Chocolate Truffles. Because we’re good Samaritans, and want you to get lucky this Valentine’s Day, we’re here to share with you the deadly easy recipe – so you too can impress your lover!


– 300g dark chocolate, chopped (minimum 65% cocoa solids)
– 300ml double cream
– 1 tsp salt
– cocoa powder

– Place cream in a pan over a medium heat and bring to a simmer
– Melt the chocolate in a large bowl over a saucepan of simmering water
– When the cream is simmering, remove the pan from the heat, add the salt, and add to the melted chocolate in three batches, making sure that the cream is thoroughly incorporated after each addition. Allow to cool slightly
– Pour the chocolate mixture onto a lined tray and leave to stand at room temperature for 4 hours, then place in the fridge for 5-6 hours or until set
– Using a spoon, scoop small amounts of the ganache then roll into  a ball before rolling in cocoa power
– Serve on a silver platter, in a box with ribbon, or off your bare chest…the choice is yours

These decadent truffles will feature as the dessert in our Fifty Shades of Bay picnic. With limited availability, we suggest you reserve your picnic now. We’re also hosting an intimate candle lit Feast for Two. Click here for all the details.
