Driving through the New South Wales South Coast can often leave you feeling immensely appreciative that we’re able to call Australia home. This was especially so as we drove through the emerald hinterland that sits at the doorstep of Shoalhaven, approximately 2-hours driving, South of Sydney.
Here, set amongst the pristine backdrop of the coastal national park and Shoalhaven Heads golf course, we stayed at the masterpiece that is Bangalay Villas. The architecturally designed villas drew their inspiration from the unique coastal location, highlighting the best of the bush and the beach.
Bangalay Villas is a weekend destination for the active at heart.
The villas themselves are designed to encourage you to spend time outside and celebrate the unique Australian lifestyle where there is no divide between the indoors and the outdoors.
Those who appreciate the sun, style and serenity will love the boutique nature of these villas.
Choose to enjoy the outside air by setting yourself up on the sun-filled, North facing, private deck and enjoy a daily gourmet breakfast hamper. For the colder nights, close yourself in and enjoy the in-room fireplace nestled in your cosy, open plan lounge.
A must during your stay is to experience the passion felt for native ingredients and local produce at Bangalay Dining, only footsteps from your villa. There is an untapped world of flavour behind these doors which is highlighted in the expertly curated menus, covering everything from your entree to your cocktail.
Expert Tip: Book yourself in for the Native Ingredient experience and see Brent Strong and his team’s passion first hand.
In the evening be sure to enjoy a cocktail at the open woodfire place where you’re treated to the subtle background sounds of Shoalhaven Beach. It’s undoubtedly one of the most serene moments you can experience while staying on the South Coast.
Sit back, relax and indulge in a late afternoon cheese spread complimented only by the regions finest wines from Coolangatta Estate.
You will enjoy a seamless and entirely digital check-in experience after you’ve selected from one of the 16 private luxury villas featuring golf course and garden views.
As an added incentive, book using our bespoke code ‘EN-ROUTE’ to enjoy 15% off your booking.
Staying at Banagalay encourages rest and relaxation and it’s a stay you won’t regret.
