Marriott International is bringing its Westin brand to WA’s Margaret River in 2023.
Following an agreement with Saracen Properties and Security Capital Australia, the Westin Margaret River Resort & Spa will feature 120 guestrooms, including 45 suites, an all-day dining restaurant, lobby lounge and a pool bar as well as more than 400 square meters of meeting and event space with pre-function area and a separate entrance.
“Expanding the Westin brand into the Margaret River region is important strategically, as the city is enjoying great growth and is not showing any signs of slowing down,” said Sean Hunt, Marriott International’s regional chief.
“Visitor numbers are at a record high and are on track to increase by 5.1 percent in the next ten years, as people seek out the beautiful beaches, world-renowned wineries and beautiful scenery that the South West Region is famed for.”
Located on the southern headland of Gnarabup Beach, the resort will have uninterrupted views over the Indian Ocean.
“The opportunity to partner with Marriott to develop a world class Westin Resort within the heart of the Margaret River region is an opportunity just too good to pass up.” said Jason Potalivo, development director at Saracen Properties.
“Despite the tourism industry currently going through the toughest of times right now, we know it will come roaring back and the appeal of visiting unique natural regions like Margaret River and the South West will be greater than it ever was.”
