There's camping, there's glamping and then there is Sal Salis! But Sal Salis offers so much more than just accommodation: a digital detox, an opportunity to reconnect with nature, guided activities focusing on the extraordinary landscapes and wildlife, chef prepared meals, an open bar and the lightest footprint all make Sal Salis one of the world’s best and true eco-luxe experiences. Sal Salis offers 15 tented rooms, each with private eco-bathroom. The social heart of the camp has views of the reef and the breakers beyond. A bar and open lounge area with a small reference library provides a great spot to sit out the heat of day. Guests may help themselves to a selection of beverages from the bar. Chef prepared meals feature local produce and dinner is shared with other guests against a back-drop of rich orange sunsets. The tariff includes accommodation, meals, beverages from the bar, use of snorkel & water sports equipment and guided activities.

My high expectations were exceeded! From the moment we arrived and were greeted by friendly, caring and genuine staff we knew this was going to be a special trip. Our tents was just perfect - clean comfortable and plenty of room. The views were breath taking and the silence was bliss. Then came our first meal ... options, quality and care were all there. When it came to dinner it felt like we were on Master Chef in reverse, as the chef came out to explain the meal he had meticulously prepared, explaining the flavours and the pairings of food all locally sourced. Paired wines were then explained - amazing. Dale and Elly were super hosts and lead an ENTIRE team of staff that are not only great at their job but are some of the kindest and thoughtful staff I have encountered anywhere in the world. A huge thank you to all for making our holiday so VERY VERY special. Kx

We had high expectations of Sal Salis but they were consistently exceeded. The wildlife (wallabies, manta rays, whale sharks, even a dingo) were amazing and the camp is very comfortable. But what makes this place so special is the staff's consistent efforts to ensure every guest (and during our recent stay, it was a very diverse bunch) has a positive experience.

After spending 4 nights in Exmouth this was to be our indulgent part of our Pilbara trip. I was a little hesitant about camping in the sand dunes but when we arrived this was more than camping and more than glamping. We were blown away by being able to stay on the magnificent Ningaloo Reef. Not too many can say they have done that. We were very spoilt by Ellie, Dale and all the gang. Open and endless bar, gourmet breakfasts, lunches and sensational dinners, fabulous paired wines and numerous activities were on offer. After snorkeling all the other areas around Exmouth, we found no better place than right outside our camp grounds to follow the drift and hover over the beautiful coral and the many species of fish. Sunsets with canapés and drinks were absolutely fabulous. This was an experience of a lifetime and we were treated like a king and queen.

Have just returned from 3 nights at Sal Salis - first thing would recommend 4, maybe 5, nights to do all that’s on offer. The tents are chic - we could lie in bed and look out over the dunes to the Indian Ocean which provided the soundtrack for sleep with the gentle roar of waves breaking on the reef. An excellent set up considering the location and the bed was really comfortable. We really only slept, changed and washed as we spent most of the time out at the Lodge, the beach or on trips. Sunrise and sunsets were magnificent. The highlight, and reason for coming, was the day out swimming with the whale sharks - truly an awesome experience. We went with Live Ningaloo which Sal Salis arranged for us. They were amazing. The staff at Sal Salis, like the other Luxury Lodges we have visited are all brilliant - although we have to say it was fantastic to see Marty and Jess who we had met before at Saffire - that said the whole team are wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities are great. We went snorkelling from the beach right in front of the resort - the reef is a couple of metres from the shore line - and the coral and variety of sea life was astounding. Found it to be better - due to its accessibility- than the Great Barrier Reef. Also took a two person kayak for a spin - this could lead to a falling out be warned! Dinner is communal style which creates an environment to share your adventures with the whale sharks and other sea life or even the other tours Sal Salis run with the other guests. Hence why 3 nights is not enough - 1 day out with whale sharks, one day snorkelling on the beach and due to the flight times and distance from the airport 3 nights can result in only 2 full days and thus we missed out on some of the tours (a good reason to return though!).

Everything about our experience at Sal Salis can only be described as amazing. There is no doubt about the fact that this is a 5 star eco resort. Everything about it has been extremely well done and consequently very hard to find any faults. The accommodation is very well appointed and comfortable, notwithstanding the fact that the bathroom is very eco based, ie. waterless toilets and sparingly provided water supply. However, there is a simple heating system applicable to the shower only, so warm showers are available if required. The guest hub is excellent and contains a good kitchen from which breakfasts, lunch and dinner are provided in truly gourmet style. The resident chef currently at Sal Salis is very good and we found that that not only was the variety on offer quite extensive, but the very high quality of the food was maintained throughout our stay. There is an open bar, 24 hours a day, with a huge variety of drinks and beverages which include top wines from WA and high class spirits. The long table dinners at night are an excellent idea and a great way to meet and interact with interesting people from all over Australia. Then there is the wonderful staff, all very enthusiastic and keen to please. The holding company has done an excellent job in recruiting such good staff. However, I figured that it is a good idea to visit closer towards the opening of the season, as it is hard to believe that the staff can maintain such a high level throughout the whole season. There are always at least two excursions offered everyday, including hikes in the national park and snorkeling outings. Many of the staff are experts in the field of marine biology or other sciences, so make outstanding guides. And of course, arrangements can be made to go whale shark watching, if you desire. Overall, this visit was an absolutely great experience and one which we plan to repeat.
