With resorts, hotels, B&Bs and motels, there is an accommodation for every budget.
Sitting right across from the ocean and just eight kilometres from central Broome, Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa is the epitome of luxury. While it features Broome architecture, there is a sense of Eastern mysticism around with lush gardens, serene swimming pools, restaurants and of course, an idyllic spa. There’s even a playground, a children’s pool and waterpark for the kids.
The Billi, another option on Cable Beach, is unique and exceptionally private, despite being located in the tourist precinct of the area. The hotel offers villas, studio rooms and ultra-luxurious eco tents for those who want to be a bit closer to nature. But don’t worry, when we say ultra-luxurious, we mean it. Each tent is equipped with kitchenettes and ensuites.
Unplug and reconnect at the Ramada Resort by Wundham Eco Beach. This one is a bit outside Broome, situated around 120 kilometres south but it’s exceptionally peaceful and the leisurely drive takes just an hour, affording you the opportunity to take in all the sites as you drive. With daily yoga, private beach dining, views over the Indian Ocean and solar powered eco villas, you’ll truly feel at one with nature.
Transformed from historic manor to an award-winning resort, Pinctada McAlpine House was previously home to a Master Pearler. Despite its vast space, there’s a sense of intimacy and serenity here, with just eight guest rooms, tropical gardens and a swimming pool. There’s even a relaxing Chinese Tea House and bird aviary on site.
Finally, The Pearle on Cable Beach is a self-contained resort offering rooms and one to three bedroom apartments. There’s a day spa and a glorious main pool, as well as a café and shop on site. Plus, some of the villas have private pools too.
Of course, there are plenty of options that are a bit friendlier to the wallet.
Broome Beach Resort is a fantastic option for families with self-catering apartments located just six kilometres from the centre of town. There are one, two or three bedroom apartments set among the gardens and all feature a full kitchen and laundry facilities.
There’s also the Courthouse Bed and Breakfast in town, just 100 metres away from the Broome Courthouse Markets. Interestingly, while each room is equipped with air conditioning, there is also a natural, energy-saving cooling system that utilises the fresh sea breeze.
The Mercure Broome is walking distance to the heart of Broome and is an excellent option for those looking for a more budget-friendly stay. There are superior rooms and smaller budget rooms, depending on what you’re after and the breakfast is pretty good too.
