Visualise the award winning Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa in Broome, and your mind may conjure up images of loved-up couples sipping cocktails while watching the fabulous Broome sunset. Not exactly the kind of place you’d visit with the kids in tow right? Well, think again! The Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa is an absolute haven for holidaying in Broome with children.
Transport to the hotel was completely stress-free! We were collected at the airport by the resort’s free shuttle bus and transported to the hotel. On arrival, we were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles which always goes down well! The shuttle bus also runs several times a day between the hotel and Broome town.
Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa is styled to reflect the Asian and colonial influences of Broome. The is a varied choice of accommodation suiting all travellers and budgets which is set in acres of lush tropical gardens.
The family pool area is completely fenced and is packed full of features which will keep the kids entertained leaving you to enjoy the day lounging by the pool. The swimming pool is large and inviting with its cascading waterfall, jacuzzi and a separate shallow area for young children which is covered with shade sails.
Located next to the pool is water playground which kids of all ages will enjoy. There are water cannons, cascading water buckets, fountains and flowers shooting water.
There is also a large shaded playground.
Older kids are not left out. They can enjoy the free mini golf and table tennis
There are free gas BBQs and seating located next to the mini golf area
If you are a parent of small toddlers you need to keep a watchful eye at all times as there is a lily pond located between the pool area and playground.
Kichi Kichi is the pool side restaurant which serves an array of casual meals and cocktails. The Mango daiquiri is not to be missed! Dine in or order from the comfort of your sun-lounger. Bliss!
There is a small kids menu. The kids burger with fries was a very generous size!
I found the wait staff around the pool to be very attentive and will bring you an iced jug of water within minutes of taking up residence on a sun-lounger.
There is a range of accommodation options available to families at the Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa. The classic Bungalow which is styled on a traditional Pearlers bungalow is perfect for families.
They feature spacious living areas and a fully equipped kitchen which includes a microwave and dishwasher – let’s face it, who wants to wash up on their holiday! There are two separate sleeping areas; a master bedroom with a kingsize bed and an additional room which has 2 single beds. A cot can be requested if required for an additional charge. The only downside I found to the bungalows is that there is no outside seating area – we do enjoy sitting outside of an evening with a glass or two of wine once the kids have gone to bed.
The Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa has four onsite restaurants, The Sunset Bar & Grill, Cichetti Club, Kichi Kichi and Zensai, all of which offer child-friendly menus. We ate at The Sunset Bar & Grill which is casual dining and overlooks Cable Beach. Reservations need to be made if you are dining in the restaurant but not the bar area. The bar offers a more relaxed menu featuring pizzas and burgers in an alfresco setting. The tables outside are great if you are dining with kids as they can run about on the large grassy area which is right in front of the hotel whilst you enjoy sipping a cocktail as the sun sets. The Sunsets are spectaculor!
If you are in need of a spot of pampering you can book yourself into the luxurious Chahoya Spa & Salon where you can enjoy a massage, a facial and much more. The Spa has seven private suites, double Vichy shower room, hair salon and yoga deck. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the opportunity to try it out.
Hotel check in is 3pm and check out 10am. If you arrive or depart outside of these times the hotel is happy to securely store your luggage and offer you the use of one of their refresher rooms which are located by the family pool area.
So if you are looking for a fabulous get away within WA, I really do recommend the Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa. You’ll come away feeling rested and ready to face the challenges of being a parent again!
