Why has is Taken us this Long to Feature a Glamping Spot in Western Australia?
We don’t know the answer to this. Western Australia has so many awesome glamping spots and we have finally come around to highlighting one. This will be the first of many.
Western Australia is huge and diverse in its landscapes. The natural beauty of Western Australia is incontrovertible. WA has more Wilderness per square kilometre than any other Australian states so we know there is lots to see and experience.
Eco Beach Resort Broome Glamping
Eco beach Resort is located in Northern Western Australia and about an hour and a half south of Broome town centre, although as the crow flies (more like the dolphin swims) it is only technically 45 kms away. However you would need a boat to follow this route. Echo Beach Resort is part of the Ramada Resort which is owned by the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. We have used Wyndham time share in Fiji before and I have to say it was excellent. If the level of service is anything like that at this resort then I can’t wait to try it out.
The accommodation at Echo Beach Resort features a beach house, luxury eco villas and safari style eco tents. All accommodation is plonked right on the Kimberley beach front and what a beach it is. Virtually untouched and pristine, beaches do not come more remote or spectacular. The Indian ocean in this area remains swimmable all year round but be warned the waters around Roebuck Bay can be a bit wild and the critters in them can be also.
Some of the activities on offer at Eco beach Resort Western Australia are:
- Turtle Watching
- Whale Watching Cruise
- Beach Fishing
- Paddle Board
- Heli Fishing
- Day Spa
- Bush Walking
- Science Flights
- Cave Walks
- Ocean Front Pool
- Beach Shelters
While the beach house and villas sound amazing we are here to talk about the safari tents. There are 30 of them and they are made from the highest quality canvas. The interior is appointed with a king sized bed, wardrobe, reading lamps, storage chests, shower, basin, toilet, Free WiFi and fan. the safari tents are perfect for those who want to be a little closer to nature but still want the convenience of a shower and a nice place to rest.
- Bedding configuration: 1 King or 2 Singles
- Rates are based on 2 people
- Maximum number of guests: 4 (Family Tents)
- Family Tents bedding configuration: 1 King and 1 Bunk Bed
- Garden or Sunset Views
- Power Output (limited to 12V)

While technically not luxury camping the villas on the property need a special mention. it is not often that we here at glamping.com.au would pass up a tent for a cabin or villa but in this instance we would possibly make an exception. The villas are right at the beach front and although the view sunset views from the deck of the safari tent would be amazing with the outlook over the gardens and wilderness. We think that watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean from the front deck of the villa would be a sight to behold.
The villas can accommodate up to 4 people and have a slightly higher level of luxury from the safari tents but as we said above the absolute beachfront views are what has piqued our interest in this accommodation style. For larger Families there are 2 Beach Houses that sleep 6 each.
To us Eco Beach Resort is the embodiment of Glamping in Western Australia. What attracts us is the remoteness, access to nature, marvellous natural history, amazing outdoor activities, spectacular views all wrapped in one extremely luxurious package.
We hope to be visiting this resort in the very near future.
