El Questro - The Homestead

The safari experience so synonymous with Africa holidays has landed in Australia thanks to El Questro Homestead, a boutique hotel supplying luxurious touches and unforgettable nature experiences in equal measure.

Make the journey to Western Australia’s stunning northern region, The Kimberley, and be rewarded with some of the country’s most astonishing landscapes. The Homestead at El Questro is found right in the heart of The Kimberley’s easterly area, where bush, tropical oases, waterfalls, hot springs, gorges and mountains reign supreme. The hotel itself is set on a curve of the Chamberlain River, rising from the cliffs to promise far-reaching views of this ever-enchanting scenery throughout your stay. Guides will then take you out into this natural wonderland to catch sight of local wildlife (resplendent birds and creeping crocs among them), hike to secret locations and fly high over it all on a helicopter or light aircraft. With 700,000 acres to enjoy and expeditions on horseback, foot, by 4x4, boat or air, you could never tire of this extraordinary place.

During the time spent in the Homestead at El Questro between tours, you can also look forward to plenty of pampering and treats too. Staff offer cool towels and iced drinks to refresh you after a day out on excursion and retreating to your luxury room or suite brings the sight of plush beds, deep-soak tubs (some out on a private deck) and timeless views across the Chamberlain River and plains beyond. Join other guests for communal meals and pre-dinner drinks each evening, all included in your stay awestt El Questro, or request a private meal above the river for more romantic moments in this extraordinary place.

Accommodation Options

Each of the nine rooms and suites at El Questro Homestead has its own appeal, with variations in view, layout and amenities. Some are quietly tucked away in the garden, while others hover right above the Chamberlain Gorge for seriously good vistas of this majestic landscape. All options come with Bose sound systems, rain showers, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, complimentary minibars and AESOP toiletries; though note that Wi-Fi is only available in communal spaces of the hotel.

Homestead Room

A lovely little hideaway with wide windows framing the gardens outside, and a furnished patio for hours spent admiring it all al fresco. The contemporary bathroom features a rain shower and AESOP toiletries, while the décor is a soft palette of lemon yellow and dove grey, complemented with a robust wooden armoire to lend a homely touch. 
Gorge View Room

A step up in luxury levels, the Gorge View Room is larger in size and flaunts a freestanding tub right next to its sliding floor-to-ceiling window, so you can look down over the Chamberlain Gorge as you soak; see if you can spot any Freshwater Crocs while you do so! There’s also an outdoor deck with comfy chairs, and warm furnishings inside to top it all off.
Cliffside Retreat
