In Detail


The magnificent 4.5 star Novotel Ningaloo Resort, Exmouth, in the Marina Village, right on Sunrise Beach, is at the gateway to the world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park.

The resort’s enviable location provides a convenient, casual yet stylish base for visitors to explore this fascinating area. Metres from the waterline, the resort is built in harmony with the environment.

Novotel Ningaloo, the sole resort on Sunrise Beach, has 68 rooms including hotel rooms, one and two bedroom self contained apartments. Three bedroom apartments are available on request. All rooms have ocean views and direct access to the beach.

The spacious apartments with spa baths, full kitchens and 24 hour room service mean guests never have to leave their exclusive surrounds.

The vision for the resort was to create a relaxed ‘beach house feel’, with a contemporary edge. A superb facilities building - a central feature of Novotel Ningaloo - provides this ambience and sets the tone for the world class beachside location. It indulges visitors with an ocean vista from the moment they enter the building.

Guests enjoy the swimming pools, gymnasium and private balconies where at times they can watch whales and dolphins frolicking in the Gulf.

The Novotel Ningaloo boasts Gold Plate Award winning Mantaray’s restaurant and bar where guests can dine inside or alfresco. An innovative menu gives diners the chance to taste regional food including fresh local seafood and seasonal produce in comfort while experiencing the natural environment. Try the signature dish Chemoula prawns with local Exmouth prawns. Children’s menu available for kids under 12 years old.

The resort is an ideal venue for families, romantic getaways, weddings, conferences, workshops and employee incentives where guests and delegates can experience the North West in comfort. You can swim with the whale sharks or manta rays, snorkel from the beach or just relax by the pool.
