Jonah’s at Whale Beach in Sydney’s northern suburbs has undergone a room refurbishment and welcomed a new executive chef.

The historically significant building, originally constructed as a roadhouse in 1929 by founder Constance Vidal, has had a facelift.

The renovation encompasses the eleven ocean retreat accommodation rooms including the Peninsula Room offering more space with beautifully crafted furniture pieces and a separate living area to bedroom.

Interior designers Baxter & Thrum have captured the coastal location and environment with all the luxury comforts of home set against a calming colour palette. The upgraded rooms have complimentary video on demand offering over 350 movies, free Wi-Fi, USB charger outlets, high pressure walk-in showers, automated curtains, indulgent mini bar with Vittoria coffee machines, beautifully hand crafted newly released World Luxury Series king beds from A.H Beard and coastal artworks.

Jonah’s new executive chef Matteo Zamboni hails from Italy and has rattled the pans at Pilu at Freshwater, Ormeggio at The Spit, as well as Quay. His international career is studded with Michelin stars from restaurants all over Europe.

Zamboni says, “With so many loyal diners and people who have incredible memories of dining and staying at Jonah’s, I’m excited to add my own influence to the menu.”

His food will be matched with wines from Jonah’s award-winning selection.With a team of top sommeliers, the list took out Wine List of the Year 2017 at the Gourmet Traveller Wine awards.
