Discovery – Rottnest Island nears completion

February 22, 2019 Glamping No Comments Email Email


WA’s highly anticipated new ‘glamping’ resort is nearing completion ahead of its sell-out 1 March opening weekend.Discovery – Rottnest Island, a 2.8 hectare development nestled behind the dunes of Pinky Beach, offers 83 fully furnished eco-tents, a resort pool and pool bar along with property centerpiece – Pinky’s Beach Club.

Discovery Holiday Parks General Manager Andy Cleverley said the team was enthusiastic about welcoming its first guests.

“Rottnest Island is a special place for locals and is linked to many fond family memories. We
aim to add an exciting new experience to the traditional Rotto family holiday, while also giving
interstate and international guests a new reason to visit Rottnest Island,” said Andy.

“Discovery – Rottnest Island’s 83 eco tents come in a range of configurations with each tent featuring an ensuite bathroom, pillow-topped bed, furnished private decks and kitchenette.

“The entire property is linked via walkways and boardwalks to Pinky’s Beach Club which is essentially the heart of the property and the ideal place to capture the sunset over a meal or
drink,” Andy said.

Since bookings opened in late October 2018, Discovery – Rottnest Island has experienced
strong interest, with the entire month of March almost completely booked out and Easter
sold-out.

Discovery – Rottnest Island is Rottnest’s first eco-resort and the first new accommodation to
be built on the island in more than 30 years. The property is the result of a joint venture
between two of Australia’s most experienced tourism operators – Baileys Group and Discovery Holiday Parks.

Significant support from, and collaboration with, the Rottnest Island Authority (RIA) has taken
the property from concept to reality.

Discovery – Rottnest Island has created more than 70 full-time, part-time and casual employment opportunities for hospitality industry personnel on the Island.

The property was developed by locals with construction of the resort generating 200 direct jobs including architects, project consultants, builders and trades, and around 350 indirect jobs.
