Smiths Beach Resort

Smiths Beach Resort is one of those luxury seafront hotels, here in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, that does the simple things very well indeed and lets its location do the rest.

The namesake bay of Smiths Beach is just steps from the property and happens to be one of the area’s finest, a curve of soft sand that’s both dramatic and picturesque that’s also a popular spot for yoga as well as food festivals and music events too.

You then have excellent access to dozens of nearby wineries, tasting tours and long lunches while staying at Smiths Beach Resort, as first-class gastronomy is certainly big on the agenda here.

This is, in fact, a very laidback Margaret River resort, where in exchange for all-singing five-star facilities you instead have a modest central infinity pool, splash pond for kids, tennis courts and in-room massage plus yoga and cookery classes for fun, yet relaxing afternoons onsite. The modern and airy guestrooms (which feel more like self-contained abodes) all have a furnished balcony and most enjoy sea views, with larger options also featuring a lounge, multiple bedrooms and well-equipped kitchen for some extra independence – particularly good if travelling to Western Australia with children.

Perhaps one of the most memorable aspects of your time at Smiths Beach Resort, however, will be the gastronomic journey on offer, courtesy of head chef Kate Lamont. Her signature restaurant and deli are flagships of seasonal, locally sourced fine-dining food, showcasing the best of Aussie ingredients and international influences the country’s cuisine is known for. You can opt for wine-pairing taster menus with the help of an extensive cellar of labels, tuck into truffles, scallops and steak within the main restaurant or pre-order a gourmet meal to be delivered to your room. And, given that Smiths Beach Resort is perfectly located for all kinds of day trips, bike rides and nature walks, a deluxe Lamont picnic hamper from the Deli & Café is surely too good to resist.

Accommodation Options

The accommodation options at Smiths Beach Resort are more like fully fledged luxury self-catering apartments than guestrooms, with their furnished lounge areas and verandas (including a private BBQ), fully-equipped kitchens and gardens, flat-screen TVs and choice of multiple bedrooms if required, parking spaces outside your front door and even washer/dryer facilities too. They are also spacious, modern, comfortable and most enjoy sea views from their balconies – something that’s almost guaranteed in the higher categories, and if travelling to Australia as a family Beach Houses here range from two to four bedrooms, so you’ll have plenty of space to spread out in.

Restaurants

Lamont’s Restaurant

Your dining experience at Smiths Beach Resort is in the safe hands of executive chef Kate Lamont, who specialises in seasonal, locally sourced, grown and caught produce to create truly captivating fine-dining cuisine, with a distinct Aussie twist. Think slow-baked feta with lavender honey and cumin chickpeas, seared scallops and kaffir lime leaves or aged fillet steak coated in truffle butter; every plate on every changeable menu is just heavenly; the hotel’s extensive wine cellar will also ensure a perfectly paired glass with every course.

Magic.

Activities and Entertainment

One of the hotel’s greatest features is its proximity to Smiths Beach itself, a long stretch of wild white sand cushioned by emerald seas (which can get a little windswept at times) on one side, and rough shrubland on the other. Smiths Beach is a real attraction around the Margaret River region and popular for yoga, boat trips and even foodie festivals or music events that are sometimes held on the bay. Mountain biking, expert cookery classes, 4x4 off-road drives and wildlife walks, snorkelling, caving, horse riding and wine tasting tours to any of the dozens of vineyards which surround Western Australia, are also highly recommended pastimes here

Facilities

Smiths Beach Resort has a nice selection of onsite comforts to enjoy between outings, though the wider Margaret River region is always crying out to be explored while here. The property orientates around a central infinity pool, sun terrace and separate splash pond for kids; there’s also a tennis court and in-room massage available if in need of a little downtime. You then have plenty of parking, Wi-Fi throughout the property and concierge-style services from the reception staff and waiting team too.
