Beach Club ac­co­lade

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

CA­BLE Beach Club Re­sort and Spa was named WA’s Best Re­sort Style Ac­com­mo­da­tion Ho­tel re­cently, fol­low­ing a ma­jor up­grade to its ac­com­mo­da­tion.

The Broome re­sort re­ceived the ac­co­lade at the AHA Ac­com­mo­da­tion Awards for Ex­cel­lence last month.

In May this year, Hawai­ian, which bought the re­sort in 2000, fin­ished ren­o­vat­ing 177 stu­dio rooms, spend­ing more than $7 mil­lion.

Hawai­ian hos­pi­tal­ity gen­eral man­ager Ron Se­don said 25 per- cent of Ca­ble Beach Re­sort’s guests were re­turn visi­tors, so it was im­por­tant to give them a “big­ger and bet­ter” ex­pe­ri­ence each time.

“The stu­dio rooms have new bath­rooms and a com­plete dé­cor change but it’s still sym­pa­thetic to the pearling style of the re­sort,” Mr Se­don said.

Hawai­ian chief ex­ec­u­tive Rus­sell Gibbs said the in­vest­ment was con­sis­tent with how the com­pany ap­proached its as­sets.

“As a group, a big driver is con­nect­ing peo­ple with places,’ Mr Gibbs said. “You come up here (to Broome) to con­nect with fam­ily, friends and your­self.”

Ca­ble Beach Re­sort’s gym is set for the next up­grade, with plans to dou­ble its size and add more equip­ment.

Mr Se­don said the re­sort was also plac­ing more im­por­tance on well­ness, with a fo­cus on yoga and thai chi at the Bud­dha Sanc­tu­ary.
