Broome’s newest boutique villa resort, The Billi, opened in October last year and has just unveiled its latest and most unique accommodation offering - four Luxury Eco Tents catering to the new "Glamping" trend. It's a form of sophisticated camping that has inspired a major feature in our next issue of Holidays for Couples, so we were pleased to hear all about this latest Australian destination to offer a luxe alternative with a wilderness holiday.
Set within a stunning resort setting right the heart of the Cable Beach Tourist precinct, the Billi Resort's tents are accessible and affordable, and have been decked out in style - from the soft cow hides on the floor, original artwork on the walls, serene lighting , faux fur throws and a sumptuous five star pillow topped bed to a freestanding bath in the en-suite. There's even room for a well equipped kitchenette complete with refrigerator and microwave. And to bring the outdoors in, you have your own private limestone encased timber deck area, perfect for a relaxing afternoon toast to the sunset together!
If you are lucky, you will see the camel trains which pass by the front of the property throughout the day as they make their way to Cable Beach, or spot the array of wildlife that surrounds you at The Billi, including their resident frilled neck lizards, tawny frogmouth owls and many other friendly fauna.
Laze around the resort pool, read a book in one of the many contemplative areas, ride one of the on-site hire bikes to Cable Beach or explore Broome and the surrounds in your discounted on-site hire car.
Sounds like a great holiday to us!
Little wonder the resort already has four weddings booked this year - The Billi Resort is small enough to be booked out by a single group for the
ultimate private resort experience.
