Pullman Bunker Bay Resort Margaret River Review




 Which hotel to choose when you are at Margaret River?

If you are heading to Margaret River and would like to stay in a place that has a touch of class, Pullman Bunker Bay would make an excellent choice.

After extensive research for the right place to stay at Margaret River during our last self drive adventure at Margaret River, we decided to stay at Pullman Bunker Bay Resort. With a price of about SGD 500 per night, it includes breakfast for a 2 bedroom option. Considering the exclusivity of the hotel, it is a steal at that rate.

 Checking In  
Pullman Bunker Bay
We drove straight from Perth airport to Pullman Bunkers Bay Resort. A straight drive without any stops would have taken you about 3 hours. We only recommend it if you are taking the morning flight into Perth to plan for a drive to the hotel. The hotel itself is located near the tip of Margaret River along the road towards Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

The lobby
Checking in was a breeze. With complimentary parking on site, you need not worry about finding a space to park.

The Room 
2 room villa
We booked the 2 room villa for our stay. To get to the villa, we took a buggy as it was quite a distance from the lobby. There are 150 spacious bungalow style villas nestled on 35 acres of lush landscape.

 We loved how its quaint appearance from the outside. It looked like a tiny little house.

Stepping in the villa, you will be greeted with high cathedral ceilings. With an open concept, you have the dining room, kitchenette and living room all in sight.
Full-size kitchenette
Unlike a normal hotel, the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort came with a full kitchenette. You could prepare your own meals there.

The living room was spacious to fit a 6 seater sofa. You could even sleep on it if you choose to.

Moving beyond the living room is a porch. It's not very big, but good enough for you to sip your tea or coffee while enjoying the morning breeze.


The bedrooms were of good size and fit a king bed. Both bedrooms rooms looked similar in size and outlook.
Bathroom at Bunker Bay

The bathrooms were almost as big as the rooms itself. One came with a bathtub while the other one had a shower.

Amenities were provided as well.

In terms of size, this 82 sqm room was spacious and best suited for families. If you are going as a couple, you might want to opt for the studio units instead. The studio units faced the pond giving it a tranquil feel.

The Beach

The nicest thing about Pullman Bunker Bay Resort was the direct access to Bunker Bay beach.


With only a handful of houses around it,  it iwa almost like a private beach.



The water there was great for surfers as we had seen a few surfers taking to the waves while we were there.

You might even catch someone doing Yoga by the beach!


The best part about the beach was the sunrise. With nary an obstacle in sight, you get to see across the horizon and watch the sun popping out from it. It's an amazing sight that is not to be missed when you are there!

You would be glad to know that access to Pullman Bunker Bay is only for guests only, thus giving the exclusivity to this place.

The Resort Facilities 

Other than the amazing beach, there was plenty to explore at the resort itself.

Our first stop was at 'Other Side of the Moon'.  In case you are wondering, we did not take a spaceship there. Rather, this restaurant is the heart of Pullman Bunker Bay offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our package came with breakfast and it was a hearty meal for you.


Breakfast at Pullman Bunker Bay

You can opt to dine indoors or outdoors. During winter, it may be better to head indoors as it can get quite chilly outdoors.
Alfresco dining
Nonetheless, if the weather is good, head outdoors. After all, with a view like this, who can resist?


Head a level down and you will reach the pool.


The pool was heated so you can enjoy it both during summer and winter.

If you need gym time, there is a small gym on site for your workout.

It may be just a rock, but it is a beautiful rock. It's only less than 10 minutes away from the hotel.

Canal Rocks
Canals Rocks
This was a more impressive rock formation compared to Sugarloaf.  See a canal between granite rocks chiselled by nature. It's an impressive sight. You can also take a 2 km scenic hike to Wyadup cliff.

Xscape at the Cape


An easy 20 minutes drive away was the Xscape at the Cape. This was a mini theme park with playground, mini-golf , trapezium and a shooting gallery for kids.

Simmo's Ice Creamery

When you are in Margaret River, you have to go to Simmo's for their world-famous ice cream. Voted as one of the top 15 ice creams in the world, it would be a sin to miss. Besides that, there was a family fun park with mini golf there for families to take a break. Only 20 minutes away from the resort.

Wonky Windmill

Another attraction for Margaret River are the farms. Start with Wonky Windmill, located about 30 minutes away.


Country Life Farm

If you want somewhere nearer, head to Country Life Farm, an easy 15 minutes drive. This was more than a farm as it has indoor playground, rowing boats, bumper cars and more there.

Yallingup Maze

About 25 minutes away is the Yallingup Maze. This will probably the best maze you could find in Margaret River. Worth a visit.
