Cable Beach Club Broome

Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa is the only resort on the iconic Cable Beach, set on a 22-kilometre stretch of white sand and turquoise water with a rich history as a pearling port.

Famed for its sunsets and camel rides, it’s a destination for travellers seeking the “real” Australia – those rich Kimberley colours and a warm getaway during winter. The low-rise resort, which is largely timbered, is surrounded by lush gardens across 26 acres. Rooms feature polished timber floorboards, corrugated-iron touches and Broome’s signature lattice, with amenities designed as much for an adult escape as a family adventure. Interiors are styled to reflect the Asian and colonial cultures that have shaped Broome – think a muted palette of greys, whites and light tan that gives a breezy feel to rooms designed around a tropical aesthetic. 

Studios, suites, and bungalows are equipped with king-size beds, flat-screen TVs, minibars and plush linens, with French doors leading to private balconies or verandahs overlooking the lagoon pool or Cable Beach. Villas each boast a private courtyard with a plunge pool, outdoor shower and sun loungers and come with a dedicated host, breakfast, in-room check-in and private airport transfers. Splashy and splurge-worthy, indeed.

What’s There

There are long lists of amenities, and then there’s the list here, which kicks off with not one but two pools: a lagoon-style swimming pool for all ages and the adults-only Ocean Pool. Active types can get moving in the fully equipped gym or out on the basketball and tennis courts, while kids can get their kicks on the playground or mini-golf course. You’re not short of dining options, either, with four premium and award-winning restaurants on-site. Relaxation is very much part and parcel of a stay here as well, whether in the Chahoya Spa & Salon, the Buddha Sanctuary yoga space or by way of some retail therapy at the Allure Pearls shop. And if you’re lucky enough to be here for work, the main conference room can accommodate up to a whopping 250 people.

What’s Around

Accessing Cable Beach from the resort is about as easy as it gets, but there are attractions aplenty nearby, too, including Gantheaume Point, Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and Matso’s Brewery, where award-winning ginger beer comes with views over Roebuck Bay. To learn the history of pearling in Broome, take a Pearl Luggers Tour, which includes a tasting of pearl meat – a delicacy that sells for up to $200 per kilo.

What’s Super Special

Being the only resort that overlooks Cable Beach is super special in its own right – and it certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to catching a spectacular Indian Ocean sunset. Cable Beach is also famous worldwide for camel rides, a truly one-of-a-kind experience that can be arranged by the resort’s dedicated tour desk. 


The resort is ideal for families, with school holiday activities, mini-golf and a playground. The tropical gardens are vast, and beach activities take place metres from your room. Multiple on-site dining options also include children’s menus.


Sunset Grill serves an extensive buffet breakfast from 6.30am daily, with knockout ocean views to match.

Eating and Drinking

Sunset Grill lives up to its name at nightfall, with an alfresco dinner offering that every bit competes with the stunning sunset over Cable Beach. Kichi Kichi, meanwhile, serves Thai-inspired fare in a stylish poolside setting, whereas Cichetti takes the modern Italian route on its two- or three-course menu. For an intimate Japanese dining experience, there’s Ikigai, where kaiseki menus by chef de cuisine Sean Kim run the gamut from sashimi and nigiri to proteins hot off the traditional hibachi. Poolside dining is also an option at both pools from 11am, as is in-room dining until 9pm daily

Things to Book

Set aside some time to unwind in the serene spa, Chahoya (meaning ‘pamper’ in Japanese), which has seven private suites, including a double Vichy shower room. The classic treatments, from massages to manicures, all feature L’Occitane products, but go all out and book the decadent half-day Chahoya Experience, which includes lunch. The spa also has a hair salon if your locks need some love. Prefer getting out and about? The resort’s tour desk can help organise Broome tours or a Kimberley adventure. 


While check-in and check-out are at 3pm and 10am, respectively, you’re free to use the resort’s facilities, including the pool, gym and refresher rooms if you arrive or depart outside those times.
