Soul food on the menu at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef

You may be staying in a remote seaside location on Western Australia’s mid north coast, but it certainly doesn’t mean you need to compromise on quality when it comes to food at Sal Salis.

We actually use our location to our advantage. This region is internationally renowned for its excellent quality seafood.

Situated on the shore of Ningaloo Reef near Exmouth, at the northern tip of Western Australia’s Coral Coast, we offer our guests modern cuisine featuring seafood caught in the pristine ocean on our doorstep, and other locally-sourced ingredients. We pride ourselves in featuring the finest local produce on our menu, and we’re always on the look-out for fresh new ingredients to serve our guests.

Our menu features a suite of locally sourced mouth-watering delicacies served to our guests in beachside luxury style. A range of flavours are represented from far-flung corners of the globe – France, Italy, Greece, the Middle East, China, Japan, Indonesia and Vietnam.

We aim to offer our guests an escape from the stresses of everyday life and the opportunity to restore the mind, body and soul in a remarkably beautiful location, which is free of digital distractions. We believe in a holistic approach to rejuvenation and providing our guests with good quality sustenance is a big part of it.

Our favourite time of the day is sunset, when we serve canapés and drinks. Our guests return to us after a full day exploring Ningaloo Reef, discovering nearby gorges of the Cape Range National Park, or just relaxing on the private beach metres from their eco-luxe safari tent. We love hearing animated stories about memorable adventures, like swimming with whale sharks or humpback whales as we serve drinks accompanied with canapés like sushi, arancini, dumplings, croquettes and even crocodile!

If you love seafood you’ll love Sal Salis. The menu offers at least one seafood dish each day and includes locally caught prawns, cuttlefish, squid, Blue Swimmer crabs, Rankin Cod, Goldband Snapper, Red Emperor, and scallops sourced from the nearby Abrolhos Islands.

Exmouth bugs are special treat here and a favourite among our guests. They are caught locally and sent directly to us to serve with tortellini and a simple sauce, so as not to overpower the taste of the sweet, fleshy meat.

If you enjoy red meat, you’ll enjoy the lamb souvlaki and kofta, lamb rack, seared kangaroo, beef eye fillet and venison chorizo. While white meat lovers will savour the taste of dishes showcasing succulent pork belly, chicken kibbeh and confit duck Maryland.

Those with a sweet tooth are well and truly indulged here at Sal Salis… Dessert highlights include the spiced chai pannacotta served with a sesame wafer and raspberries, as well as the mocha cheesecake served with chocolate dirt and coffee caviar.

Our talented team is happy to cater for all dietary requirements, so please don’t hesitate to let us know about your requirements in advance. Our guests are invited to help themselves to our open bar featuring a large range of spirits and West Australian wine and beer.

Reinvigorating Salted Souls yoga retreat to be held at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef

Reinvigorating Salted Souls yoga retreat to be held at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef

Does your soul feel weary? Do you need a break from the daily grind to reconnect? We may have the solution you’ve been searching for.

One of Australia’s leading yoga therapists and spiritual healers, Denby Sheather, is offering a week-long spiritual adventure to be held at Sal Salis, Western Australia in August 2018.

This eco-luxe pilgrimage aims to nourish tired souls through restorative yoga, soul-seeking meditation and daily healing in the pristine Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area located at the northern tip of Australia’s Coral Coast.

Denby believes that eco-luxe resorts like Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef invoke an immediate sense of presence and peacefulness.

“Sal Salis is regarded as one of Australia’s best glamping locations, offering eco-certified deluxe accommodation and facilities and contemporary cuisine,” Ms Sheather said.

“The focus of our stay will be the wilderness around us; the marine and land inhabitants. The camp has been designed to operate in tune with the fragile environment, and as such, it abides by strict principles of minimal impact and sustainability.

“We’ll walk, climb, dance, stretch, swim, sing and dream our way through some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery.

“We’ll practice yoga on location, hike through the magnificent Mandu Mandu Gorge and cruise quietly up Yardie Creek spotting black-footed rock wallabies and other wildlife.

“Through healing ceremonies and wildlife adventures, we’ll remember our authentic self.

“We’ll sail out with the be-spoke eco-tour company, Live Ningaloo into the Ningaloo Marine Park on private tours to see and interact with a myriad of marine life, from humpback whales, turtles and manta rays to dugongs and dolphins.

“There will also be plenty of time to pause and relax on the beach or in the privacy of your eco-luxe safari tent.

“By night, we’ll enjoy dining under the stars and we’ll breathe ourselves back into balance by the pulse of the shifting sea.

Denby has 18 years of experience in the field and has founded the innovate practice, Mana Yoga, a unique flow that reflects her own journey with yoga, energetics and motherhood.

Her shamanic work weaves an empowering layer to the yoga; unbinding and aligning, inspiring and recalibrating bodies, hearts and minds through an intuitive sequencing of remedial and seasonal postures, breath work, meditation and mantra. You will be moved, in many ways on many levels, to the point you may feel like you’ve just received a massage, counseling session and yoga practice all rolled into one.

Inspired? You don’t need any previous yoga experience to sign up for Salted Souls, so why not join this once in a lifetime opportunity to reinvigorate yourself at our remote beachside camp in the Cape Range National Park?

Leave your troubles behind and return home restored on all levels.

Have a whale of a time at Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia!

Are you looking for a great excuse to visit Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef? We are happy to oblige with a whopping big reason! Our whale shark swim partner, Live Ningaloo, now offers the unique opportunity to swim with humpback whales on Western Australia’s Ningaloo Reef!

Humpback whales are known for their intelligence, size and distinctive body shape, which they spectacularly flaunt with some pretty impressive acrobatic displays!

 

Humpback whale

 

Following a highly successful first season of conducting the Humpback Whale Swim and Adventure Day in 2016, Live Ningaloo is thrilled to offer this bucket list experience again from 1 August until 31 October 2017.

Live Ningaloo’s Sonia Beckwith said that swimming with humpback whales was incredibly exciting because the whale determines the interaction.

“Once the spotter planes have located whales and they’ve been observed for a while, we line the boat up 400-600 metres in front of them and then the guests slip into the water. The boat moves away and then cuts the engines. The small group enters the water, adjust their masks and dip their faces in the water, but leave their ears out so they can hear updates on where the whale is from the skipper, who counts down for them,” Ms Beckwith said.

“Before you know it, he’s saying: ‘They’re coming!’ the whale comes into view and you see a whale’s eye focusing on you.” “They’re checking you out!”

“It’s a brief, magical encounter which is calming and surreal.”

“People holler and hoot when they get back on the boat and we’re often told that swimming with humpback whales has been a life-long dream.”

Sounds pretty good, right? Here’s an overview of how your Whale Swim Adventure will unfold.

After waking up in your eco luxe safari tent and enjoying a delicious gourmet breakfast at Sal Salis, you’ll transfer to Tantabiddi Boat Ramp and will be issued with all the gear you’ll need for your epic aquatic adventure.

Passengers are offered a light morning tea while we cruise out on the Indian Ocean in search of humpback whales. It won’t take long – these enormous migratory mammals are easy to spot! You’re sure to be amazed to see them breach, lunge and slap the water!

Before long, a group of up to five people will enter the water with these massive gentle giants of the sea. Imagine that – you’re in the water with a whale up to 16 metres long! INCREDIBLE! You may even get to swim with more than one whale over the course of the tour.

You will also get the opportunity to see a great many other marine species while you’re out on Ningaloo Reef. You could encounter whale sharks, manta rays, turtles, dolphins and dugongs!

After all the excitement, you’ve earned the mouth-watering lunch offered on deck.

You’ll arrive back at Sal Salis by mid-afternoon with enduring memories of this once in a lifetime experience. Enjoy a well-deserved afternoon siesta in your hammock, then regale fellow guests about your Whale Swim Adventure over evening drinks and canapes.

The foodie genius behind Sal Salis’ seasonal and local menu

We are known at Sal Salis for providing the best eco-luxe experience, right in the heart of the Ningaloo Coast. As well as offering an amazing chance to immerse yourself in nature, we also tantalise your taste buds with an outstanding all-inclusive menu.

Our chef, Brendan, affectionately known as Tassie, works hard to provide a varied and stunning menu from breakfast to dinner.

When you wake in your tent to the sounds of the waves crashing and a kangaroo hopping by, you may also be greeted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee. Breakfast is a feast of granola, yoghurts and fresh fruits, along with a menu of about 5 choices. Think baked eggs and hollandaise like you’ve never tasted! Some mornings, when the conditions are just right, the team may even treat you to an impromptu beach breakfast! There’s nothing like watching the sunrise with a coffee in hand and bacon and eggs in your tummy!

Lunch is normally a light and tasty salad, featuring some delicious local delicacies. For the vegetarians, this could be something like pumpkin, goat’s cheese and pomegranate salad and for the carnivores, it’s got to be freshly caught Exmouth prawns.

We encourage people to chat and relax together as a group. It makes for a fun and relaxed environment, and who knows, you might even make some new friends!

Sunset at Sal Salis

Tassie will let you know when it’s time to be seated and will also explain the menu to you. Communal dining is where it’s at. Dine under the stars, at a table lit by oil lamps and candles.

A three-course menu awaits! From local bug ravioli, Coral Bay steaks and freshly caught barramundi, you’re sure to enjoy every bite. Just make sure you save room for dessert; who can resist chocolate and almond torte with Frangelico garnish and fresh berries or a pineapple pannacotta?

Dining at Sal Salis

Tassie says he loves to work with local produce and what’s fresh that day or week. The menu changes three times a year in line with the seasons. So, if you’re visiting in Summer you’re more likely to see light, fresh options, whilst if you come to Sal Salis in Winter, the warmth and depth will be dialled up a notch!
