These apartments are ideally located alongside Novotel Swan Valley Vines Resort (shown below) with its pool and spa, 36 hole Golf Course, Keishi Day Spa, gym, restaurants and bars, set in bush that is home to kangaroos and native flora and fauna.


Close by are the world-class wineries such as Houghtons and Sandalford, Margaret River Chocolate Factory, local cheese and foods producers and restaurants, boutique breweries and other tourist attractions.

Accor says the redesign of the apartments drew inspiration from the natural surrounds of the acclaimed Swan Valley, with “wall coverings and tiles in a rich palette” accompanied by finishing touches that give a feel of warmth in the cooler wine country.
