WA Tourism Minister Paul Papalia has turned the first sod to mark the start of construction on the new luxury eco village at Pinky Beach.

Work on the $20 million joint venture, between Baileys Group and Discovery Parks, will begin after completing an intensive application process to ensure the development will preserve the area’s environmental integrity.

Set in the dunes of Pinky Beach, Discovery Eco Village Rottnest Island will offer guests the chance to experience the island’s spectacular natural environment in low-impact, high-quality eco-tent accommodation.

The retreat will consist of 83 eco-tents with ensuite pods, connected via elevated walkways through the dunes to the Pinky’s Beach Club complex complete with swimming pool, alfresco bar and licensed dining areas.

Development is on track with the first guests expected by the end of 2018.

It comes as Karma is set to bring an additional touch of luxury when it opens a world-class day spa experience on Rottnest Island in the coming months.

The day spa will be located in the heart of the settlement across from the accommodation at Karma Lodge.

In another exciting development, Karma is also taking over operation of the Rottnest Island golf course.

The arrangement will ensure the island’s golfing experience in the idyllic natural surrounds, remains first class.
