Western Australia Luxury Resort Poised to Open

Pinctada Cable Beach in Broome, Western Australia will begin receiving guests this May. This is the newest luxury resort in Broome and the latest addition to the Pinctada Hotels & Resorts portfolio.

The town of Broome is renowned for its multicultural mix, shaped by the town’s pearling history when Japanese, Filipino and Malay pearl divers arrived to seek their fortune. The resort’s design draws inspiration from the style of the old pearler’s homes, with four Master Pearler suites as the centerpiece for 71 studios and suites. The entire property is connected to a grey water management system, recycling wastewater for irrigation, and a state of the art solar heating system which minimizes energy consumption.

A highlight of the area is 13-mile Cable Beach and its unique Staircase to the Moon, a natural phenomenon that occurs from March 4 to October 28, when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats at extremely low tide, creating the optical illusion of a staircase reaching to the moon.
