The Byron at Byron is a resort with a real sense of serenity and a proper commitment to the environment. It’s set within a 45-acre rainforest, benefitting from all the natural harmonies that a rich eco-system provides – a languid place of rich timbers, wide verandahs, oversized cane lounges, lush gardens and slow turning fans. A natural soundtrack comes courtesy the local birdlife and raucous night-time amphibians…
Stroll along the boardwalks through the sub-tropical rainforest to Tallow Beach, perfect for a morning walk while the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean. Relax by the 25m infinity pool or poolside sauna, or indulge in the luxurious Spa and Wellness Centre. Guests can also take to the tennis courts, the nearby golf course or work out in the fully-equipped gymnasium. The resort is only five minutes south of bubbling Byron Bay, Australia’s most famous centre of ‘alternative energies’, a place alive with restaurants, shopping and beachside bohemia. In the evening, the Byron at Byron restaurant sets new standards in contemporary alfresco dining, offering imaginative dishes made from fresh local produce.
Upon entering the resort I’m greeted by a gigantic vase of lilies, sophisticated and contemporary Thai-style resort decor and the friendliest staff you’ll ever meet at a 5-star resort… An eco-Mecca. – G Magazine (Australia)
