Thank you again for yesterday. We all had such a wonderful day. Everything was perfect, the food was delicious and as always the staff were fantastic.
- Billie Bottomley
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with the planning and organizing for our birthday celebrations. The staff had an amazing time and couldn’t be happier with how everything went. Thank you!
- Bethany Harris, Office Administrator | Phoenix Insurance Brokers
A huge thanks again to you and your team for being so wonderful. Everyone had an awesome time and thought the resort was absolutely stunning.
- Sophie Hallums, Office Manager | Boston Consulting Group
Thank you once again for the wonderful service we received from the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort for our annual Principals’ Retreat. From all accounts they had a lovely time and enjoyed the peace, serenity and comfort of the Resort as well as the superb food over the three days. Please pass on our thanks to the staff who assisted us during the day and for our evening functions and to you for your overall organisation for the event – well done!
- Denise Moolla, Executive Officer | Catholic Secondary Principals’ Association of WA
Thank you so very much for your assistance leading up to and during the Leeuwin weekend, I really appreciated your time and effort during such a busy period to ensure all of our clients had a pleasant experience. I am one for attention to detail and felt comfortable that we were both on the same page. Please also thank your team they are an asset to the resort, always smiling and offers of help. Next year there are already talks of increasing our guest numbers, so I look forward to working with you again.
- Victoria Readings, Senior Sales Manager | Perth Zoo
I just wanted to pass on some feedback about my liaisons with Zac Leach for the Deloitte group accommodation and dinner during the Leeuwin weekend. Zac has helped me 2 years in a row and I couldn’t be happier. Zac has really gone above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly for Deloitte and I appreciate his attention to detail and keeping me in the loop on any changes. He has accommodated our last minute requests and has always been available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. Running an event 3 hours away is always a bit nerve-racking so having someone on the ball and willing to go that extra mile is greatly appreciated. This is a hugely important VIP event for Michael McNulty and Deloitte Perth so I’m very grateful to have had Zac help us out and I just wanted to pass on my personal thanks to Zac for all his awesome work and also to the Pullman for looking after Michael’s group for the weekend. Thanks again and we look forward to working with Zac and the team again next year.
- Stephanie Haughton, Executive Assistant to Michael McNulty, Managing Partner Western Australia | Deloitte
I wanted to send you a huge thank you – you and your staff (particularly Jordy) made our job so much easier and nothing was ever too much trouble. The conference group thoroughly enjoyed their time at Bunker Bay and the professional hospitality and service shown by your staff. Sincere thanks for your enthusiasm and hard work.
- Andrea Cameron, Group Travel Manager & Incentive Specialist | Alpha Travel
Thanks again so much Zac for all your amazing work. Without you the CSDPA conference would not have gone so smoothly. Lucio has advised us you spoke to him about re-booking for 2019 and we will discuss at our next CSDPA meeting. Zac, I especially want to commend two members of your team for their work. Please pass on my thanks to Tiffany and Jordy. Tiffany for her smooth supervision of our Cocktail party and Conference dinner. Nothing was too much trouble even down to preparing for me a little takeaway for our priest Father Tony who was going to miss the food. Jordy for her upbeat attitude and quirky little biblical touches around the place.
- Natasha Quinn, Vice Principal | Chisholm Catholic College
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for the excellent event that you facilitated for our delegates at the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort. The venue provided a relaxed and inviting setting for our visiting guests, and we were very grateful to you and your staff (including the front desk, functions and kitchen staff, the cleaning staff and many others) for the attentiveness they showed us on a daily basis in meeting our requests and ensuring that we were able to host a highly successful event. Feedback from the delegates has been extremely positive, with participants expressing that they were highly satisfied with all aspects of this event, which was made obvious to us by the relaxed and happy crowd throughout the event. Most of all, we thank you all for your warm and genuine approach, your attention to detail, and the way you made us feel that nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!
- Carly, Angie, Maggie and Tania, RANZCOG 2018 WA/SA/NT/Provincial Fellows | RSM Secretariat & Organising Committee
Thank you for a wonderful stay, I really appreciate all your assistance in the lead up and on the day. A big thank you to Tiffany and the other staff who assisted on the night also. We had very good feedback from all the delegates about the venue and the dinner.
- Natalie Burgess, Coordinator Continuing Professional Development | Rural Health West
A big thank you to you and the wonderful PULLMAN team for another excellent conference experience. Everyone had a great time.
- Graham Richards, Commercial Director WA/NT | Property Council of Australia
I just wanted to say a big thank you for last week!! Everyone has just been raving about the amazing venue and fantastic food so thank you for making this such a successful event! We had such a good time and you guys were brilliant to deal with. I also had brilliant feedback on Will and Emma. Ryan mentioned you’d be kind enough to share your Halo cocktail recipe with me? I want to send it to my guests as a bit of a ‘thank you for coming’ considering how popular it was. I look forward to being able to come back and bring my family for a bit of R&R!
- Katerina Wang, Personal Assistant to CEO & DoP | IPC Asia Pacific
A few weeks have passed since the Ferring Team Building Event, but I have not forgotten to write this e-mail to thank you. (Just been so busy!) Knowing the importance of this event, you went out of your way to assist and to ensure that the guests were happy.From the initial greeting when we arrived to the last goodbye when it was all over, you never hesitated to assist. Last minute changes you carried out with a smile and at a drop of a hat. The event was a great success and the feedback was great!
- Roxanne Spangenberg, Sales & Marketing Coordinator | Ferring Australia
Just wanted to quickly thank you. The Managers have come in this morning to say they had a fantastic stay. Your staff were very helpful and accommodating, the food amazing and the facilities perfect. I'll have to come down to visit some time it sounds like a wonderful area to stay. Thanks so much.
- Dee Mason, Site Administrator | Evolution Mining
I felt compelled to write to you to express my gratitude. Last Friday our organisation held a client function at your resort, Pullman Bunker Bay. Managed by Zac Leach, our event was thoroughly enjoyed by all attendees. As you will read in my survey feedback, every aspect was a 10/10 and I was taken back by the professionalism and passion your staff have to create a truly unique and successful event. Zac was flawless, and if there is ever another opportunity for us to host an event in the region, without a doubt we will be back again as our experience was second to none. Thank you again.
- Charlotte Gell, Marketing Manager | Accountancy Insurance
I’d like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the whole event. Mike said it went really well and everyone had a great time. I found your attention to detail to be fantastic and I really appreciated your help with putting the gifts and envelopes in the rooms, even with the last minute changes. Last minute things can’t be helped sometimes but you guys really helped to organise everything that we could do to make it less obvious that there were changes. I appreciated you keeping me in the loop on when people arrived and how the evening was going. I’m sure we will work together again next year. I hope so anyway because you were such a help for my first time doing this event for Deloitte.
- Stephanie Haughton, Executive Assistant to the Managing Partner | Deloitte
We have just returned to Melbourne following the completion of our extremely successful Cape to Cape LifeChanger Challenge. One of the key reasons for the trek being so successful was the wonderful support we received from everyone through the planning and delivery of the challenge. In particular, the support we received from you and from all of your team at the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort was outstanding. You assisted us immensely with our planning, including putting us in touch with local suppliers and offering suggestions on how we could make our journey as special as possible for our participants. Then, after walking for 140 km's in less than 5 days, we received a wonderful greeting and exemplary level of service when our team of weary trekkers arrived at the Pullman. And indeed this service continued for the duration of our stay. Please also pass on a big thank you to Nic for going the extra mile (and more) on the Thursday and Sunday evenings in coordinating Nina's presentation and welcome to country. This was truly inspiring. We would love to again stay at the Pullman when we hold our next Cape to Cape Challenge and I'm sure there will be plenty of other visits to the Pullman from the team in the meantime. All the best and many thanks again.
- Scott and Steve | LifeChanger Operations
Just a short note to say thanks and to congratulate the team their on making our stay very enjoyable. The venue is fantastic, the food excellent - best we have had for a conference, and the staff excellent. Pass on our special thanks to the young lady who looked after our meeting - she did a great job. All of our team want to come back, and I definitely will. Jokingly, the guys from the east said the sand at the beach was too white, and too soft!!! Thanks again.
- Jim Forward, WA State Manager | Adama Australia Pty Ltd.
Just wanted to follow up from our recent sales forum and say a big thankyou to you and your staff for making us feel so welcome at your wonderful resort. Our staff have either rang me or sent through messages of thanks and on how much they really enjoyed the event and all the facilities on offer. It is a credit to your and the staff (Emma was brilliant) on how you presented Craven Foods with our conference facilities and I’m sure we will be utilising those again in the future. Zac, would you be so kind as to pass on our thanks and best wishes to your staff – especially to Emma and Chef and thankyou once again for your efforts.
- Doug Mateljan, Managing Director | Craven Foods
The feedback I’ve had from team has all been highly positive. The venue, service and quality of food were all faultless. Thank you very much and thank you to your team also. We do these things annually and I would say we may see a consensus to return in 2019.
- Bruce Skipworth, Operations Manager | Nova Systems
I would like to say a very big thank you to you and your team for the excellent service you provided during the CRYSTAL 31 (SCANZ) conference 3 – 7 December. Nothing was too much trouble and it was amazing how quickly you all turned the rooms around, especially for the Conference Dinner on the 6th! Your personal service was greatly appreciated, you were always there to answer any questions and to help. Please pass on my thanks also to your staff for their attention and assistance. Please also complement the Chef on his excellent meals! Many people commented on what an excellent venue the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort was for the conference. Wonderful views of the ocean and the environment.
- Sally Brown, AMM | Conference Connections
I would like to thank you and your staff, especially Tiffany & Will on their professionalism and service over the past weekend for our conference. As always your team has been able to respond to last minute issues without any problems. The service from the staff is the main reason we keep coming back to Bunker Bay. Please pass on my thanks to all who helped over the weekend and I hope to be back next year.
- Angela D’Castro, Regional Manager WA/NT | Royal Australasian College of Surgeons
Thank you so very much to you and your amazing team for looking after us at our event last week. The 2 day event went off without a hitch and there has been nothing but positive feedback. A few special mentions below: Thank you to your wonderful front of house staff, for welcoming our guests warmly and making them feel comfortable during our stay. Thank you to your incredible chefs, who put together a delicious dinner, dessert station and amazing cake (at the last minute)! Thank you to your dedicated F&B team, who did a fantastic job at serving our staff at the dinner, making sure everyone was well looked after, and for their patience and good spirits throughout the entire night (and impromptu dance numbers). Last but not least, a huge thank you to you Zac! Your dedication, responsiveness and professionalism was paramount in making the event so successful. You have been such a pleasure to work with and we really appreciate all your hard work!
- Sophie Sharp, Office Manager | The Boston Consulting Group
We would like to send our thanks to all the staff at Pullman. The reception staff were lovely & helpful. Please thank the chefs the food was delish!! Will did a fantastic job helping us on both Saturday and Sunday nights and making all those yummy cocktails with no notice we were coming on the Sunday Night. Thank you for all your help with organising the last minute lunch, champagne pick up & placement in the rooms. You made everything so easy thank you for being so amazing! The group had a wonderful time.
- Nina Schaus, Administration and Franchise Coordinator | Automasters
Thank you for having us and for organising a great conference. Everyone really enjoyed their stay and we were so pleased with how the room was set up, the food for our attendees and your personal service. The only feedback I would have would be that a microphone would be a great addition to your set up. We look forward to arranging our 2018 meeting with you soon.
- Rebecca Williams, Secretary/Treasurer | Australia New Zealand Society Paediatric Dentistry (WA)
I just wanted to thank you all for the FANTASTIC feedback we received below from last month’s Deloitte Global Mining Summit. "This was the best Conference I’ve ever attended" "The hotel in Margaret River was sensational" "By far the best conference I’ve ever attended globally” "We could not have hoped for better hospitality" "When can we go back to Bunker Bay? This should be a definite for future events" ... Your team deserves recognition, but no more than you do.
- Amanda Gower, Director | Consulting | DELOITTE
I thought I’d just send you an email to say hello and let you know one of our clients that stayed at Bunker Bay for our conference loved it so much they are coming back this weekend! A big compliment to you, your team and the resort as you always look after us and our clients so well! I’ll be in touch closer to the end of the year to book again for October/November some time.
- Danica Warren, Dealer | Fixed Income Sales
Zac’s professionalism and dedication was apparent from initial contact, through the months of planning and finally the event itself. It is rare you meet a professional that is so passionate about what they do and we are very grateful we had the opportunity to work alongside Zac to make our event such a success. I would have no hesitation recommending the resort to anyone who is looking to organise an event in the South West.

The traditional name for Bunker Bay is Jingii - a place where the regional family groups would gather during the season of Djeran (April & May) when the cooler weather begins and the salmon season would provide plentiful food for their coupling celebrations. Fresh water was supplied through a natural spring on the Sugarloaf Rock ridge and mia mias (shelters) would be built by the women near the lake adjacent to this property while the men hunted and gathered for the celebrations.
Today, conference guests are able to enjoy ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremonies and cultural awareness sessions with Wardandi elders. Please speak to our events team for more details.
