Cape Lodge sale represents boutique investment opportunity in WA’s tourism heartland

Perth, 03 April 2019 – CBRE Hotels has been appointed to market for sale one of Australia’s top boutique hotels, the luxurious Cape Lodge in WA’s premier tourism region of Margaret River.

The award-winning Cape Lodge, located at 3341 Caves Road, Yallingup, features 22 guestrooms, a five-bedroom private residence, highly acclaimed restaurant, swimming pool, tennis court spa and conference facility. It is set upon 16.5ha of luscious parklands and a private vineyard that produces Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc.

The internationally renowned venue has been touted one of Australia’s best lodge hotels - named the ‘Best Boutique Hotel in Australia’ by Luxury Travel Magazine in 2011 and listed in the Condé Nast Traveller’s Gold List in 2012.

CBRE’s Aaron Desange, Ryan McGinnity and Chloe Mason have been appointed to market the property for sale with vacant possession on behalf of a private local Western Australian family.  

Mr Desange said: “Margaret River has recently gained a huge amount of attention in global press as it continues to establish itself as one of the world’s best producing wine regions. This has resulted in international visitor arrivals increasing by 37% in just the last three years. Cape Lodge is the most high-profile accommodation offering in the South-West and we expect investors will be drawn to the prospect of owning a trophy asset.” 

Ms Mason added: “With Cape Lodge being offered for sale with vacant possession, the opportunity exists for an owner-operator or an investor with operator relationships to create a boutique branding presence within the popular tourism region.”

Opening in 1993 – originally as a six-room luxury bed & breakfast – Cape Lodge underwent extensive renovations in 2003 and again in recent years to evolve into one of the region’s most popular accommodation venues.
