“Relax at Eco Beach”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is the second time at Eco Beach and it was so relaxing. The first time was in an Eco tent, this time in a villa. Four days wasn't enough. Starting the day with Yoga and Carla Ann's gentle guidance made the day. Invigorating and relaxing. Time was irrelevant and your day is guided by the sun, the tide, a massage perhaps and your stomach. An hours walk on the beach every night at sunset finished off the day with colours and light on the rocks and cliffs reflecting in receding tide. A painter's paradise. And a paradise for anyone seeking a more remote experience where you feel the power of the natural beautiful environment.
The wine and food was very good and the service very friendly.

Although the EcoTents are very basic the views over the beach and bush certainly make up for the basic accommodation. However, our biggest letdown was the food. As you are "captive" and have to eat at Jacks we were surprised and then incredibly disappointed at the inconsistency ( and cost) of the food provided. Every meal had something wrong - first night the braised pork belly was more like braised shoe leather; next morning the omelette was tasteless; lunch the chicken was tough.... and the list goes on. Entrees are tiny and rarely correct. Great staff who were very apologetic - but these dishes are third year apprentice stuff and at $35 a main I expect a lot more at a supposed 5 star resort. To cap it all - a dose of mild food poisoning from a piece of barramundi quite obviously cooked from frozen. Never again .....

What a great place to spend a few days. Stayed in the Eco tent and was fantastic with its private deck. Sitting outside having glass of wine or even breakfast,,,with the birds too. Eco beach walks are great,plenty to do.Yoga in the morning 7am sets the pace for the day and the restaurant meals are great. i love how sustainable it is and the history behind how it was destroyed by the 2000 cyclone. Great place!!!!!!!

This is a beautiful Kimberley location with real wow factor. This isolated and exclusive beach front resort is in a breathtaking location. Pristine blue waters, white sands and red Kimberley cliffs - how can you go wrong, it really is paradise. It's not pretentious and has a relaxed Aussie feel, nor is it part of a fancy International resort chain with people bowing to your every whim...thank god. So don't expect that. If you're lucky enough to stay there you'll love it.

Room Tip: sneak in your own grog! Partial ocean views are excellent value.

A huge thank you goes to my hubby for surprising me for our 20th Wedding Anniversary at Eco Beach. Broome being my favourite place in the whole world just got better with the remote, private and stunning beauty of this place. The infinity pool was perfect to sip G&T's around and our Ocean Villa was beautiful with views to forever accompanied by the constant sound of lapping waves. We were in Heaven!

While he went fishing to catch the first Sail Fish of the season and some delicious BIG fish which Barraddict smoked, I was spoilt by Carla Anne's amazing massage, facial and Life Alignment session. She is a true gift and her Yoga classes divine with a view to die for. A must for any gal!

Every meal we had was a pure culinary delight, with presentation and delicacy outstanding! The Lamb was from another world. I didn't want to leave and Karl Plunkett needs a big pat on the back for creating such an Eco friendly resort. We had a tour of how the Solar system works and the whole mechanics, ambience and tranquility of the place is a credit to his dream. Well done.

To all the staff, pilots and organisers of our getaway, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! We will be back. Enjoy every stunning Broome sunset. We miss it already! xxx

Room Tip: Go the Ocean front Villas if you want pure luxury and well... Who doesn't?!

We stayed at Eco Beach Resort for 5 nights in July and found the location to be absolutely stunning. Its 12 minutes away on a scenic flight from Broome airport, surrounded by pristine beaches. It would be right up in the list of top beach destinations as far as locations go. Pristine waters and no one in sight to share it with! The beach has some shaded area and hammocks which our daughter loved as well.

We stayed in the ocean view villa (villa 7) which was very close to the main facilities (restaurant, pool) and good access to the beach. The views (while slightly interrupted) were very nice although it lacked a bit of privacy as the windows faced either nearby villas or the footpaths. If you want un-interrupted views (and more privacy), you can go for the ocean facing villas which are more expensive. The other accommodation options include tents and garden villas, and we spoke to other guests which seem to enjoy them. Be warned though, as the tents are not air-conditioned. The rooms were very clean and had suitable furtnitures and fixtures including a massive couch in the living room and a small kitchenette.

The other drawcard for us other than the beach was the pool. Our daughter absolutely loved it and it was very refreshing to take a dip in the pool on a hot afternoon. The pool was a bit small but the view from the pool looking out to the sea was stunning.

Some negatives:
1. Service - the staff and service were a bit hit and miss. Some very friendly, some not so....
2. Food - not enough variety for a 5 night stay. We were restricted to a fairly small menu and the quality of the food was average given the prices they charged. Although the kids eat free, it is off a menu which consist of only 4 items (same for lunch and dinner) so you get bored pretty quickly.
3. Mozzies - take plenty of repellants!

Overall, I think we will go back, but for a shorter stay.

Firstly, this is a fantastic intro into Glamping that is really popular in Europe i.e. Glamorous Camping. Spent time there to rest/ relax and review for suitability in future to attend annually with my 8 year old daughter. This was perfect for individual traveller and will be a great future destination for family/friends ...
Recommend, Whale watching, fishing Jack's Creek, Daily beach and pool swims (view awesome) & Daily Yoga (free) with Carla Ann the instructor and Therapist. This "dynamo" is outstanding in what she does (yoga, massage) and also Who she is ......
Carla Ann is also a licensed Life Alignment Practioner. I took the opportunity to trust this process on the second day of my trip .......
Soon after I experienced a sense of calm, became more focused, centred and stronger mentally and physically. This has continued upon my return to Perth.
The highest recmmendation one can give is if you will be back, and resoundingly, the answer is yes, I will, but with both family and friends next time. Finally, try the Life Alignment - I can also highly recommend this!!
