Smiths Beach Resort, Western Australia
Written by Oryx
Set within a national park between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, this contemporary beach resort is a restful sanctuary for couples and families.
An architectural award-winning Small Luxury Hotel of the World, Smiths Beach Resort offers a range of contemporary, self-contained accommodation from one-bedroom Beach Shacks to Ocean View Villas and Beach Houses.
Ideal for couples, the one-bedroom apartments feature split-level accommodation with a courtyard downstairs, and an airy living area upstairs leading onto your own balcony.
For families or groups of up to eight people, the spacious four-bedroom Beach Houses are the nearest accommodation to the beach in the Margaret River region.
Each guest room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that frame views of the stunning natural surrounds or stretches of ocean and colourful sunsets, as well as balconies or courtyards with personal barbecues and outdoor dining areas.
If you prefer being cooked for, Lamont’s Smiths Beach restaurant offers one of the best dining experiences in the Cape region – for lunch or dinner in a casual but stylish setting.
Alternatively, grab a picnic lunch from the gourmet deli and head to the beach, before discovering the unusual rock formation of Canal Rocks a short walk away, or the spectacular caves along nearby Caves Road.
