Boutique Hotel Accommodation


Where Sydney’s famous harbour meets the Pacific Ocean amid gleaming panoramas and grand headlands, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel nestles on the sandy shoreline. A destination in itself, our exclusive enclave captures the feel of a secret seaside haven so completely, you’d never guess how close you are to Sydney’s busy heart.

Settle in, slow down and savour the simple things: a long lunch at Beach Club overlooking the boats and blue vistas; a barefoot stroll on the sand; sipping a sundowner while the big star paints the sky in dreamy pastels as it slips behind the horizon (did we mention that legendary Watsons sunsets come free with every stay?).

This is hotel life the Watsons way: be as lazy or as lively as you like; unplug or reconnect; escape or plunge into the action. Romantic interludes, family jaunts or big occasions all find their own sweet spot in a place where ease is a breeze.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is a winner of the 2020 Traveller’s Choice Award from Tripadvisor; we’re in top 10% of hotels worldwide!




Sydney’s unique beach culture sets the tone for our hotel’s laid-back, contemporary coastal style. Freshly renovated, and lovingly decorated by Sibella Court with objects from Australia and around the world, our 32 sun-filled rooms and suites double down on comfort with uplifting views ranging from breathtaking Sydney Harbour to serene Robertson Park and the Watsons Bay neighbourhood.

Step into Sydney

Although Watsons cleverly convinces you it’s a faraway beach oasis, you’re as close as a 15-minute flit to Sydney landmarks such as Bondi Beach, Circular Quay, Manly and Taronga Zoo. It’s as easy as hopping aboard a ferry – and a journey on Sydney Harbour’s favourite vessels is a treat in itself. Here are some insider tips to inspire your adventures.
