“An immaculate resort and spa set in 45 acres of reclaimed rainforest, this is holiday heaven for couples seeking R'n'R”
Each large 1-bedroom suite has 2 small ‘balconies’ where you can sit and read; large windows and glass walls maximise views of the rainforest and natural light.
The Standard Suites are situated on the ground floor and are less private than the others. The Superior Suites afford a better view of the treetops by being on the first floor, while the Deluxe Spa Suites are the most private and the closest to the beach.
Inside, white and taupe interiors are set off by primary-coloured and patterned soft furnishings and original art. There’s a spacious sitting room with plasma TV, an expertly equipped galley kitchen, and a comfortable kingsize (or twin) bedroom . The bathrooms have large freestanding bathtubs, many with Jacuzzi jets, and a separate shower. Locally made and natural ‘Sanctum’ toiletries are supplied.
Some suites are more private than others and it's worth asking for one away from the wooden walkways so you don’t have to hear people walking or buggying past. Four of the suites have disabled facilities, and there are 2 sets of interconnecting suites if you’re here with family or friends.
The smart-casual restaurant serves excellent modern Australian food. Wide verandas and folding doors make it a lovely and cool during hot weather, or you can choose to eat inside. There’s plenty of choice - interesting pasta dishes, fresh ocean trout, local lamb and other meats - and an excellent wine list, too.
You can also cook yourself a meal in your suite kitchen, which has a good supply of contemporary white crockery and glasses, a state-of-the-art cooker, culinary equipment, a microwave, a huge fridge and a dishwasher. Byron Bay is bursting with organic fruit and vegetable shops and there’s a good fishmongers. The Green Garage is exceptional for its organic fruit and vegetables, delicious dry goods and fresh breads.
If you’re here for more than a few nights, you’ll no doubt want to sample food outside the hotel. Byron Bay has a wide range of cafés and restaurants - our favourite brunch spot is Succulent Café on Byron Street.
