Hotel Review: Tanah Marah Estate Margaret River

The Hotel

Tanah Marah Estate is located halfway between Cowaramup and Margaret River, in Western Australia’s famous Margaret River wine region.

As you drive down a well-maintained and rustic dirt road you have no idea that you are about to enter a hidden gem.

Run by Linda and Rory Curtin and their children, the property is absolutely stunning and completely secluded, whilst also convenient to local attractions. With Cow Town and Margs just minutes away, you feel remote as the property is surrounded by lush forest, but are close to about 150 wineries, breweries, distilleries, restaurants, beaches and magnificent forests.

I was there to attend a wedding, and I was amazed at what a magnificent property it was.

The majority of the wedding party and guests had the whole complex to ourselves, and it was a magnificent way to help celebrate the couple’s life together.

A pretty causeway lined with rosemary hedges links the two sides. 

There’s a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts, a gym, kayaks to use on the lake, lawn games and a library available for guests. 

The 340-acre property includes native Australian bushland providing excellent opportunities for walking and bird watching. There are also some friendly sheep who love to be fed even though they graze on lush farmland all day!

You can book the chalets independently, but if you are planning a function in Margaret River, Tanah Marah Estate is ideal for groups to simply take over the place.

The Rooms

Six picturesque self-contained chalets enjoy commanding views of our expansive private lake and forest. With many hectares of grassed land separating the chalets from the lake and reception centre, it was a very safe and spacious place for the children to play.

The comfortable two bedroom rammed earth chalets are well appointed and recently renovated. A full-sized, fully equipped kitchen has Cesarstone benchtops, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and European ovens and induction cooktops.

There’s a large dining table and plenty of space to relax on comfy couches.

A terrace with generously proportioned outdoor furniture overlooks our stunning private lake.

Large bedrooms can be configured with a variety of luxuriously comfortable beds, and each comes with its own enormous ensuite bathroom.

The Dining

There is no restaurant on site, but it does have a reception centre as The Tanah Marah caters mainly for receptions, parties and corporate events. Chalet guests are able to use the reception centre commercial kitchen for their own catering, and each chalet has its own excellent kitchen.

The Lakeside Function Centre and reception is located on the opposite side of the lake to the chalets. One of its best facets was that the reception centre contains a play room for kids, so they don’t get bored as the function progresses.
