Thought a tropical escape was off the cards due to old mate Rona? Think again. Stretches of white sandy beaches, balmy nights and laid back vibes make Broome the ultimate spot for a little R&R. Top it all off with palm trees and ridiculously good food and bevvies, Broome has an ultra tropical vibe set to rival any overseas destination. 

Whether you’re in the mood for something luxe or feel like getting in and around nature, here’s a wrap of the best places to stay in Broome. 


Eco Beach Resort

Broome really knows how to dish out a luxe experience. Eco Beach Resort, an hour South of Broome is where you can discover the untouched beauty of this region. Villas and eco-glamping tents overlook the Indian Ocean and there’s an onsite spa, water activities, a yoga studio and incredible restaurant dishing out local produce. 

Mangrove Hotel

Two words: bayside escape. We’ve been drooling over photos of the Mangrove Hotel and we have a word of advice. Splurge on the Ocean View Suites and wake up feeling all sorts of fresh as you look out over that turquoise bay. 

The Billi Resort

The boutique Billi Resort is seriously stunning. You’ll have a hard time choosing between the villas, studio rooms and the ultra-luxe safari tents. The pool, gardens, seclusion… we want it all. 

The Pearle

Stroll from the crystal clear waters of Cable Beach to your self contained pool villa at this South-East Asian inspired resort and we guarantee this is one holiday you won’t forget. Make a cocktail in the designer kitchen, sip away on the deck and dip your toes into your very own private lap pool. Nope, you’re not dreaming. 

Cable Beach Club Resort

If you know anything about Broome, chances are you’ve heard of Cable Beach Club. This is where you can really live it up. Four restaurants, an adults-only ocean pool, the Chahoya Spa by L’Occitane and a cocktail menu as long as your arm—if you’re headed there, we’re jealous.

The Pearler

If you’re headed for Broome, chances are you’re looking for a tropical escape. This restored 1907 Pearling Masters Residence takes up its spot within lush gardens and ponds and has a pool and tennis court. It’s the definition of an oasis. 

Treehouse Broome

The Treehouse gets its name from the way it's been built around an old Boab tree, part indoors and part outdoors. What might there be outdoors you ask? A kitchen, super chill decked area, and the pièce de résistance—a bath where you can soak away your adventure filled days under the stars. 

Cable Beach Resort Home

Group holiday planned with the fam or crew? This five bedroom house will get you some serious street cred in the holiday planning game. A 14-metre pool, massive outdoor entertaining area and a stone’s throw from Cable Beach. You can thank us later. 

El Sueño - 'The Dream'

There’s a reason El Sueno is known as The Dream. This traditional Broome style home has an indoor and outdoor bathroom (with its own little garden), perfect little pool and plenty of space to relax and enjoy paradise in style. 

Budget Stays

Cable Beach Caravan Park

On the classier end of caravan parks in Broome, we think this spot is worth it to be that close to the oh-so-famous Cable Beach. There’s a pool with a waterfall, on site cafe and all the amenities you’d ever need. 

Beaches of Broome

If you’re in desperate need of a holiday but the purse strings are looking a little tight, rest assured, Beaches of Broome is no average backpackers. There’s rooms for everyone from dorms to private ensuite rooms. Kick back by the very pretty pool or find yourself at the beach in a couple of minutes. This one’s a gem. 

The Pearlers Cottage

This private little studio is the perfect place for a romantic little getaway when you’re ready to get away from the hustle and bustle of town. While it may be basic, the gardens are lush, and the room is super cute. There’s also an outdoor bathroom which you know we’re obsessed with. 

Pinctada Studio

For less than 100 bucks a night, you can sleep easy at this awesome little studio set between Cable Beach and Chinatown. There’s a kitchen to get your meal prep on, BBQ, tropical garden and plunge pool.
