A simply jaw-dropping beach front location makes this the ideal place for a very different kind of stay
Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is a remote, beach-side safari camp nestled in the dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park, on the shores of Ningaloo Reef. With just sixteen eco-luxe wilderness tents you will share this striking location, and one of Australia’s best kept natural secrets, with few others. The focus of your stay at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is the wilderness around you and its marine and land inhabitants.
Your eco-luxe wilderness tent accommodation is designed to expose you to the sights and sounds of the great outdoors … perhaps a red kangaroo grazing amongst the dunes, the beautiful song of a butcherbird or a humpback whale breaching just beyond the reef. You will share these magical experiences with just a handful of other guests – this is the true luxury.
This is an eco-luxe resort so the key comforts are all here: comfortable beds, 500-threadcount organic cotton bedlinen, an ensuite bathroom, delicious food and a generous bar, but it’s not a luxury African-safari style lodge so don’t expect antique furniture and a minibar or even a telephone. The resort’s power is solar-generated and each en suite bathroom has a nature loo. Water usage is very carefully managed so that no waste material escapes into the surrounding ecosystem. You will be allocated 20L of water per person per day for showering using native herb soaps and ecologically sound shampoos, which are provided.
The Main Lodge
The main lodge is the heart of camp-life. Raised above the sand and coastal scrub with views out onto the reef and Indian Ocean, it is the place to gather for meals and relaxation. Here you will find a small reference library with a variety of board games and a comfortable lounge area with self-service bar – an ideal spot for relaxing during the heat of the day with a cold drink and good book.
The dining area at the lodge is where you will join with other guests for a menu of delicious meals created by our talented, resident chef. After dinner sit in the open air and look up – the number of stars is simply astonishing and the location is known to be one of the best places to see the Milky Way. Our lodge guides bring to life the myriad of stars and point out the many different constellations filling the night sky.
