A one-bedroom apartment at Broome’s Kimberley Sands Resort and Spa proved the perfect location to re-discover the beauty of Cable Beach.

The beautiful Broome beach.
Broome’s stunning Cable Beach.

The resort is about a 15 minute stroll to the beach, ensuring some spectacular early morning and late evening walks.

My apartment was located within a walled block, which included its own plunge pool and outdoor seating. I also had my own private outdoor sitting area.

The living/outdoor area.

My room was large, while the kitchenette had facilities to allow for self-catering. The resort also features a deck poolside bar and restaurant for those preferring to dine out.

The local bus from Cable Beach to downtown Broome and other town attractions stops next to the resort, ensuring easy access for those not wanting to drive.

What: Room 603, a one bedroom apartment at Kimberley Sands Resort and Spa.

When: July 25-August 1, 2018.

How It Rated:

The apartment was clean and spacious. The main living area included a lounge and large chair, a four-seater dining table and a kitchenette area complete with a small fridge, cooking facilities and Nespresso coffee maker. The bedroom, which was separated from the living area by a sliding door, featured a very comfortable king bed. A large free-standing bath and separate shower were bathroom highlights.

My outdoor area.

Sliding doors from the living room and bedroom led to a private courtyard, complete with an outdoor lounge and four- seater table. Hardwood floors, ceiling fans and bright artwork added to the holiday feel of the apartment.

Staff and housekeeping were efficient and helpful.

The property’s proximity to Cable Beach and the Broome bus service.

The shared courtyard pool.

The resort has a large swimming pool which I didn’t use.  Similarly, given that I had my own private courtyard, I didn’t use the many other sitting areas scattered around the resort.

Efficient Wi-Fi and a good selection of television stations (including Foxtel football channels!). Both the bedroom and living area had televisions.

My bedroom.

The room was quite dark.

While I only heard my neighbours once, there was a wall with a door connecting to the next apartment, so noisy neighbours could be an issue.

The resort is located around five kilometres from the centre of Broome.  If you want to explore Broome’s other attractions, you’ll need to use the bus, a taxi or have your own car.
