The Sebel Resort & Spa Hawkesbury Valley

When planning our New Year's trip to Sydney we searched long & hard for the perfect accommodation.  I'm sure we are not alone in saying that accommodation can either make or break a holiday, especially if it's non-refundable!

Having to suffer through poor service can really harsh those relaxing vacation vibes....

So, we didn't take choosing a place to stay lightly. After scouring the internet in search of the absolute best deal we came across The Sebel Resort & Spa in Hawkesbury Valley. Online it appeared to be everything we wanted, and the incredible rate made it even more appealing. So how was it you ask?

We are happy to report The Sebel Resort & Spa in Hawkesbury Valley is officially our home away from home. Yes, that's how fantastic our recent stay with The Sebel was! We experienced something at The Sebel that we very rarely experience during our travels. It only took a few hours upon arriving for us to genuinely feel at home. Isn't that exactly how you want to feel when on vacation? Definitely.

Most days we woke finding it difficult to convince ourselves to leave the grounds & explore Sydney.... who could blame us? The Sebel has everything you need!

Seriously, they have an award winning Day Spa, the largest in Western Sydney. The also have the Gazebo Restaurant which offers a very appetizing hot & cold breakfast buffet each morning. Looking for a cosy dinner spot offering exceptional food to take loved ones? Then check out The Sebel's Harvest Restaurant (you can find our review of Harvest... here)

In search of a night cap after a long day of exploring? Head over to The Sebel's Barracks Bar! They even offer light lunches.

The staff is very friendly & helpful. We couldn't have asked for better service. This was incredible given they had a major New Year's celebration going on at the time. We expected to be ignored, but The Sebel took great care of us.

New Years @ The Sebel Resort & Spa Hawkesbury Valley 

It is extremely convinient to have a New Year's celebration at your doorstep. If you are staying during this time I would recommend trying to get a room a bit farther back from the front (past the Gazebo Restaurant) This is the area we stayed at and when we would retreat to our room on the night we couldn't hear a thing. If you are the kind of person who wants to have a couple drinks, and doesn't want to suffer through the jam packed public transport & insane traffic on New Year's Eve in Sydney then this is the ticket for you.

No need to have a D.D. when all you have to do is open your door to find the party! It was a very memorable, and romantic night. We danced, we drank, and got to know some of the other guests at The Sebel. If you want to escape the crowd... I recommend heading over to the pool or the playground for privacy. If you look up you can still see the beautiful firework show!

A special thanks to the team at The Sebel Hawkesbury Resort & Spa for a great time! You'll be seeing us again!
