bespoke hotels in distinctive Australian landscapes
High on the coast of Western Australia lie the wonders of Broome. Here, spectacular setting suns and rising moons create their own sea of colour as the Indian Ocean’s sparkling turquoise waters lap sweeping white beaches and the distinctive red pindan earth of the Kimberley. A melting pot of Aboriginal, Asian and European influences imbue this special place with its own exotic flavour and offer a clue to its rich pearling history.
In the East Kimberley, Kununurra is the gateway to a timeless land of majestic outback vistas, millions of years in the making. This is landscape on a grand scale, romantic and true, home to larger than life characters, each with a story to tell. Beauty, untouched and unique, arouses the senses. Sights and discoveries defy words, lodging deep within the soul. It's your time to connect and re-connect, a journey of reawakening, of the bond between people and place.
At Pinctada Hotels & Resorts we understand the Kimberley experience - personal moments, endless horizons.
At our hotels in the Kimberley you'll find personalised service, understated elegance and a sense of 'place and space' that reflects the Kimberley's unique beauty and contrasts, culture and spirit.
