Margaret River’s enduring popularity as a world-class destination has been enhanced with luxury hotel chain Marriott International announcing it will open the region’s first five-star resort in the Western Australian tourism hotspot.

The announcement of the Westin Margaret River Resort & Spa provides a strong vote of confidence for WA tourism following the devastating impacts of COVID-19.

“Times are exceptionally tough for the State’s tourism operators at the moment, but this announcement provides an important indicator that the long-term future of WA tourism is bright.”

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia

Marriott International is the world’s largest hospitality company, and its commitment to WA tourism despite the current environment demonstrates important, long-term confidence in the State.

The Westin Margaret River Resort & Spa will be located on the southern headland of Gnarabup Beach, including 120 guest rooms, on-site dining venues, and meeting and event space.

“Marriott is one of the world’s most prestigious hotel brands and the new luxury resort will add yet another attraction to the already world-class Margaret River region.”

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia

The project is expected to create more than 300 jobs during construction, with more than 100 ongoing local jobs to be supported once it opens its doors in mid-2023.

The hotel is being designed by WA architect Christou Design Group, with WA companies Saracen Properties and Security Capital Australia carrying out the joint development of the project.

It will feature views over the Indian Ocean, access to the Cape to Cape and other local attractions, and its on-site dining options will support local producers by sourcing local produce from around the region.
