Castaways Expansion Development

The existing infrastructure will remain intact however added to this will be new infrastructure on the 56 ha property.

From humble beginnings as a small café on the rugged west coast back in 2002, Castaways has seen massive growth in its journey to becoming a fully-fledged resort. Castaways now specialises in weddings and conferences, and offers restaurant dining, the Bersantai day spa, adventure and recreation activities as well as accommodation options including glam camping.


This growth, resulting in The Resort’s present extensive infrastructure and successful onsite businesses has been established from a careful strategic plan to open Castaways to a wider audience, but also preserve the breathtaking natural environment.


We are currently in the next exciting stage that is taking Castaways Resort to a whole new level. Introducing luxury two and three bedroom residential villas to the Resort in recent years has created the opportunity to acquire a piece of this extraordinary locale with Stages one to four completely sold out.

The expansion into the 56 ha freehold property will incorporate some exciting new features to complete The Resort. The proposal includes a new venue encompassing a restaurant, wedding and conference facility, along with a swimming pool, gym, tennis court and staff accommodation.

100 freehold title Villa’s are planned to sit on approximately 10 ha of land providing each with spacious surroundings and outlook. Extensive planting of native flora and flax will further beautify the existing terrain.

The 100 freehold titles will be serviced with common services owned and managed through an incorporated society. 700 metres of private road

leading to a purpose built parking area behind the main venue will enable access to these new facilities. From here on the facilities will be accessible only by walking tracks and electric buggy lanes, enhancing the relaxed and natural feel of The Resort as well as minimising

noise and vehicle pollution.

Development will be staged with 50 new chalets being added in stage 1 to 6 with the present support facilities still being utilised. New support facilities will be added as stages 7 to 11 are being developed
