The award winning Sea Breeze Resort in Exmouth, Western Australia has joined the Best Western group today, giving the Australasian affiliate of the World’s Biggest Hotel Family a new accommodation option for holidaymakers and corporate guests visiting Ningaloo.

Located on Western Australia’s North West Cape, Exmouth is known as the gateway to the Ningaloo Marine Park and Cape Range National Park, part of the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.

Best Western Sea Breeze Resort offers 28 fully self-contained 4-star executive and 3.5-star standard studios, with kitchenettes, free Wi-fi, 40 inch flat-screen TVs and free Foxtel channels. The property’s features include a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, lagoon style pool and barbecue area surrounded by tropical palm gardens. A free airport shuttle bus service is available for guests travelling to and from Learmonth Airport, 38km south of Exmouth.

Best Western Australasia’s Chief Executive, Rob Anderson has welcomed the group’s latest addition.

“Best Western has 12 hotels across 10 locations in Western Australia, and I’m pleased to add Mr Passeck’s Exmouth property to our offering. It is one of the leading accommodation providers in the region.”

Axel Passeck, owner of Best Western Sea Breeze Resort said the property has undergone a series of upgrades to pass Best Western’s Quality Assurance program.

“We are excited to again carry the Best Western brand as it is highly regarded in regional Western Australia and around the world. With the whale shark season now underway at Ningaloo, we’re expecting high occupancy rates for the remainder of the season.”

The Passeck Family opened the property on 1 April 1998, after leasing Bachelor Enlisted Quarters 4 (BEQ4) of the former Chief Petty Officers’ Quarters in the historic Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt. They converted the vacant buildings into the Best Western Sea Breeze Resort where it stands today.

“Guests talk about the novelty of staying in an active naval base, the original landmark that put Exmouth on the map. It still sends messages for Australian and U.S. naval command centres to submarines around the world,” Mr Passeck said.

Situated a two and a half hour flight or a 15-hour drive north of Perth, leisure and corporate travellers visit Exmouth regularly to swim with whale sharks, humpback whales and Giant Mantas. The Ningaloo Reef stretches across 300km of white beachfront, with popular activities including snorkelling, 4WD safaris, scenic flights over the reef and more.
