Construction on Pinky's Eco Retreat, Rotto's first new accommodation in decades, is expected to begin early next year.
Rottnest Island has glamping in its sights, following the conditional approval of the new Pinky's Eco Retreat by the Rottnest Island Authority Board.
Construction on the beachside eco resort is set to begin early next year. It'll incorporate 85 eco tents ranging from luxury glamping to affordable family options, with prices from about $100 a night.
Each tent will have a double bed or two singles, along with an ensuite with a bath and outdoor shower, a lounge area and a private outdoor entertaining area. Tea and coffee facilities will be provided, along with a fridge and overhead fans for cooling.
The resort will also have an open-air Beach Club restaurant and bar, and it'll all be connected up with raised walkways to protect the landscape.
Developer the Bailey Group will improve public access to nearby Pinky Beach and the Basin with new raised walkways.
The developement will also include stabilising and vegetating degraded sand dunes, and provision of public showers and bathrooms.
Pinky's Eco Retreat is expected to open late next year.
