Grounded on the sandy shoreline of one of Sydney’s most iconic harbour beaches, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel sings out to those in search of endless summers, postcard panoramas and our speciality: unhurried happiness.

Chilled afternoons chinking glasses over seafood platters down by the waterfront; elegant escapes above in our 32 light-bathed rooms and suites; and unforgettable parties raising the tempo under the stars. Blue harbour views by day, ultimate sunsets come dusk. Holiday for an hour, while away an afternoon, or lose yourself for days.

This is beach life, the Watsons way.

We’re loved for unforgettable weddings, life celebrations and inspiring team trips. We’re a go-to for good times great and small, or just those moments that call for some seaside spirit. If you know Sydney, you know Watsons, and our parties are often the talk of the town - but somehow our beachside playground convinces you it’s yours alone to discover.

Arrive by land, or step in from the sand. Sail, ride or stroll. Wandering into Watsons is easy - and staying is a breeze.

 

EVENTS AT WATSONS BAY BOUTIQUE HOTEL

Whether you’re all business or strictly social, Watsons has a space for every occasion. We’re expert hosts for conferences, corporate gatherings, social celebrations, product launches, media events and all those reasons people come together in special places. Our award-winning chefs and across-it-all events team make each event sing from start to finish, in waterfront surroundings to suit the mood you seek: light-drenched Sunset Room, Top Deck’s outdoor panoramas, or a variety of kitted-out conferencing rooms. 

Mixing work and pleasure is the Watsons way, and our beautiful beachside home offers no end of fun pursuits for all to share: beach volleyball, stand-up paddle boarding, whale watching and wine tasting, to name a happy few.

Pick a package from an inspiring range, or ask our team to curate a custom offer guided by your goals.

 

CONFERENCING AT THE BAY

One of the great beauties of a Watsons conference is the feeling you’re in a faraway seaside getaway when in reality you’re just a shell’s throw from Sydney’s CBD and airport. A ferry ride can deliver a Sydney-based team from desk to destination in as little as 15 minutes, and even if you’re from farther afield, arriving at Watsons is such a breeze your team might wonder exactly how it happened. Once here, our 31 boutique hotel suites allow you to complete the escape to an inspiring, energising enclave free from stress and distractions, where big ideas happen naturally. Our conferences range from five people to 100, in spaces to brainstorm, breakout and kick back once the work’s done.

 

ON SITE ACCOMMODATION

Why shouldn’t work feel like a holiday? Enjoy Sydney Harbour or Robertson Park views from our 32 light-filled rooms and suites, all newly refurbished in contemporary coastal style. With complimentary breakfast and the ocean at your feet, your day’s set up for success before the work’s even begun.

 

GETTING TO WATSONS BAY

Watsons might feel a million miles from care, but we're super-connected and accessible from all angles. Just 11km from Sydney’s CBD and 21km (about a 20 minute drive) from Sydney Airport, your journey from desk to destination is not only painless, but pretty too. Take the scenic harbour route aboard a ferry, private boat or water taxi and step straight onto our doorstep at Watsons Bay Wharf. Our events team’s happy to help make your journey here a breeze.
