Spring 2020 at Pullman Bunker Bay - The Perfect Romantic Getaway

Life seems to get busier and busier these days. So that you can get a proper break away from it all, it’s important to not bring your busy ‘work schedule’ on holidays with you.

So many people make the mistake of organising a weekend away by scheduling too much. A breakfast here, a cave tour there. The main issue is, most of the time you spend all your day driving around.

There is a time and place for tours on a multi-week holiday, but a weekend getaway is for unwinding in style.

Pullman Bunker Bay offer their guests the chance to truly take some time out and relax. Within the grounds of the resort, you will find everything you need. From secluded villas, massage/spa treatments to fantastic food.

Spring is an excellent time of year to visit the region. The native bush is coming alive for wildflower season, whales are migrating south along the coast, and the beaches uncrowded.

Below you will find a relaxed schedule of an example weekend that you can experience at Pullman Bunker Bay. Change it up as you wish - it’s your weekend.


You’ve arrived early afternoon as a result of leaving work at midday. Checking into the Villa, you can take a moment to appreciate the view over the lake from the private deck. Inwardly thanking yourself for booking a room with a jet spa bath.

That is the perfect time to indulge in a massage. Set the standard for the weekend nice and early. Pullman’s own Vie Spa delivers just what the doctor ordered.

An excellent option is ‘Heaven On Earth’. 120 minutes of to-die-for treatment, leaving you feeling present and relaxed.

Now, its time to don your bathrobe for the evening because you don’t need to dress up to order Room Service. An excellent option is:  “Market Fresh Fish Of The Day” Szechuan calamari, lime mint fennel salad, coconut chilli lemongrass sauce, sea succulents.

Finish off the day by falling into a deep sleep in your King bed.


You have two goals today, a morning swim and to not be late for your spa appointment.

Better tick the morning swim off nice and early. The resort has an Infinity Pool that is heated year-round to 26 degrees.

Breakfast at Pullman offers guests access to Wellness Coach inspired detox juices and healthy option foods that will leave you energised. As it is Spring, you will be able to see whales migrating south along the coast. It is typical for whales, and their calves, to stop and play in the calm waters of Bunker Bay.

It’s time to head back to the pool, find a lounge in the sun and settle into a great book.

Early afternoon is time for your Spa Treatment. An excellent option for your treatment is ‘Awaken’. The description says it all: “Draw energy from the healing power of nature, while restoring an all-over radiance from head-to-toe.

• Bergamot Scalp Cocoon & Reviving Head Massage

• Lemon Myrtle & Lime Body Scrub

• Reviving Lemon Myrtle & Cucumber Cocoon

• Foot Massage & Mask

• Organic Full Body Hydration.”

For dinner, its time to head to the Other Side of The Moon - the award-winning restaurant. On the menu is an inspired twist of locally sourced produce such as Local Wagyu, Manjimup Truffle Oil and Margaret River wines.

Later that evening, enjoy a final nightcap wine on the private deck overlooking the lake.


After a lovely sleep in you awake in your Villa to the sound of birds chirping on the lake. You enjoy a coffee from the coffee machine in the kitchen. After, its time to walk down to the ocean for a stroll along the beach. Taking in the quiet calm of the ocean, you reflect on what a great weekend it has been, and promise yourself that you will come back and repeat it very soon.

As for settling back into the workweek, you will find yourself more energised and clear-thinking. What about your laundry from the previous week? Remember to bring it with you as Pullman Bunker Bay offers laundry service - they really are the experts at providing relaxation.

If you would like to partake in a relaxing Bunker Bay Resort experience for yourself, speak to the friendly staff, they are more than willing to help.
