MEDIA RELEASE – Back To Bangalay | Shoalhaven’s Bangalay Luxury Villas Are Open

Jun 4, 2020

On the back of the NSW Government’s announcement to allow regional travel from Monday 1st June, Bangalay Luxury Villas has thankfully been delighted with the amount of enquiries and solid bookings as the NSW population looks to travelling again after months of uncertainty caused by the devastating bushfire season, damaging floods and catastrophic COVID-19 restrictions.
 
To welcome back their much-loved regulars and stimulate new visitors to the popular Shoalhaven holiday region, the Bangalay team have developed ‘COVID-safe’ protocols and bespoke dining experiences that can now be fully enjoyed at the property’s intimate on-site venue, Bangalay Dining.
 
Bangalay Dining will be launching their new menu from Thursday 4th June following the notice that regional travel will be permitted from June 1st and restaurants will be able to host up to 50 people.
 
Through the COVID-19 closures Bangalay Dining has offered a delicious takeaway menu based on the former bar menu which has proven very popular with guests, visitors to Seven Mile Beach and locals. With regional visitation and increased restaurant capacity permitted, Bangalay Dining is thrilled to be able to once again extend their offerings to include table service and a range of new dining experiences such as a Native Ingredient dining experience, Oyster experience, a 6-Course Degustation menu and more.
 
Bangalay Luxury Villas Owner, Designer and General Manager, Michelle Bishop says: “Bangalay Dining is committed to providing high quality and unique food and wine experiences. As regional areas begin to open up again to visitors, Bangalay Dining’s offerings are responsive to social distancing and the knowledge that there is a heightened awareness of supporting local producers and providores, something that we have always had a focus for. Our new interactive experiences provide an opportunity for our talented team to share their knowledge and delight our guests with some incredible flavours.”
 
“At Bangalay we have an opportunity to provide our guests with both restaurant and in-room dining options, already our gourmet picnic hampers are in high demand as they provide an option for our guests wanting to explore the unspoilt and remote parts of Jervis Bay as a day trip from Bangalay.”
 
Set against the pristine backdrop of Seven Mile Beach, Bangalay Sand Forest and Shoalhaven Heads Golf Course, 16 architecturally designed villas effortlessly blend nature and the finer details. Those who appreciate authenticity as well as style and quality have come to love the genuine, natural and peaceful style of Bangalay’s luxury accommodation.
 
The self-contained villas are just two hours south of Sydney, three hours from Canberra and only 15 minutes from historic Berry, making Bangalay Luxury Villas the beautiful destination or the perfect pit stop while on a quick getaway to the stunning South Coast of NSW.
 
To set aside health concerns, Bangalay Luxury Villas is now offering Contactless Check-in meaning that guests will be sent their villa number and access code via SMS prior to check-in. The team will also continue to encourage and offer in-room dining from their new Asian/native ingredient fusion menu and optional daily housekeeping.
