Western Australia's Margaret River is known for its wineries, accommodation, cuisine, caves and Indian Ocean surf beaches, with 75 top class breaks spread over 130km of pristine coastline. With coastline stretching from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, surfers have much to choose from.
Bunker Bay was once a campsite for local Aboriginal people who fished the sheltered waters for salmon and collected mussels. Europeans camped there between voyages, and now it is the site of Quay West Resort Bunker Bay, a five-star resort protected by the Cape Naturaliste promontory.
There are one-, two- and three-bedroom villas some with spa bath with ocean, lake and garden views. All have a private courtyard. There is also individual reverse-cycle air conditioning, kitchen or kitchenette, plus electronic entertainment.
Local materials have been used to capture the essence of Australia metal roofing, timber feature walls and exposed jarrah trusses are united to create a modern outback feeling. Villas have jarrah floors and sandstone walls, large furnished balconies, opulent bathrooms (many with spas) and spacious living-dining areas with cathedral ceilings and opening windows.
The Other Side of the Moon Restaurant has understated Mediterranean cuisine served inside or alfresco. During winter the cosy fireplace adds to the ambience. The bar has a separate seating area and there is a pool bar and casual beach kiosk.
Quay West's spa is the perfect way to top off the relaxation the resort offers. The latest in massage tables, showers, Vichy showers and spa baths are yours to enjoy. Indulge in a facial, eye treatment, manicure or pedicure in one of three treatment rooms or six spa rooms. You can then enjoy the sensation by relaxing with a herbal tea or fresh juice in a private courtyard.
