“Relaxing retreat just out of busy Byron”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Just 5 minutes out of town is this very relaxing piece of paradise set in the rainforest but still close to the beach. Nestled amongst the trees with many birds and wildlife this resort features a great restaurant, pool, spa and gym and is an oasis out of the busy town centre of Byron. The rooms are spacious with lounge and kitchenette and the staff are very welcoming and happy to please.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

A group of us stayed here in July 2014 for a girls weekend away and absolutely loved the place.

We stayed in two superior suites, which were great - very spacious and comfortable. We booked the pamper package for our stay and the inclusions (facials, restaurant credit, use of bicycles, yoga, glass of champagne) was certainly great value for money.

The staff themselves were very helpful, friendly and attentive and the grounds were beautiful, so it was a pleasure to stay at the resort as well as exploring the town.

It was useful having the transfers to and from the town itself however we never managed to align our times and ended up catching a lot of taxis, which varied from $13 - $18 one way. Therefore, if you plan to spend a lot of time in the Byron Main Street, you would need to be aware of the extra taxi costs you might incur. But having stayed at the Byron at Byron, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Booking a package deal in the Winter months is great value for money.

Great resort located about 5 mins drive out of the main Byron township.

The resort is quite spread-out, however accommodation is across 2 general areas. One group sits close to the main resort facilities (spa, pool, restaurant), with the other group about 5 mins walk from the facilities, and a further 5 mins walk to the beach.
There are large board walks throughout the resort, allowing you to walk through the rainforest and enjoy it.

The resort pool looked great, but it was raining so we didn't try it. The restaurant and spa were both fabulous - for once it seems they werent after-thoughts, just a very high quality restaurant and high quality spa attached to accommodation. The spa was great (with the best massage I've had in a long while), with a chance to soak in a hot spa before going in for treatments. Restaurant served up great dinners, lots of local produce on the breakfast buffet and the staff went out of their way to help with meals for our daughter (including running meals through blenders etc).

Free yoga at 8am was good - more of a mid-level yoga. Mats provided.

Staff at every part of the resort were great - seemed to be genuinely interested and went out of their way to help us, chatting to us or keeping our daughter entertained. When we had a problem with the TV they were in our room within 5 mins getting it up and running again.

The room fittings were a bit tired. They were in the middle of refurbishing the resort, so hopefully this will be fixed soon. The room was a great size for us - bedroom, lounge, kitchenette (with washing machine and dishwasher). The bedroom is separated from the lounge by a sliding door, so if you are a light sleeper, it probably wont be private enough for you.
Bassinet and bedding were provided at a small cost. the big issue we had with the room was the bed was just too soft. It did cause a bit of a sore back for us, but the masseuse at the spa dealt with that quickly.

free wifi was patchy in the resort - if you are relying on it for work then you can use the cable broadband in the room.

Would really recommend this resort if you were looking to just get away from everything. No real need to leave the resort if you just want to chillax for a few days.

Room Tip: decide if you want to be closer to the beach or the main facilities, then book appropriately.

The offering of this resort is fantastic - a lush green setting with forest fresh air to fill your lungs each morning before a stroll to the nearby Tallow beach is a perfect way to the start the day; a heavenly spa treatment is an ideal way to wind down from a busy lifestyle in Sydney and the privacy of the well appointed Cypress suites to enjoy dinner brought to you from the restaurant top off a lifestyle you could get used to!

The resort is a 6-7 minute drive to Byron centre, which is very manageable given the lack of traffic and availability of free parking.

Breakfast at the resort is okay - it isn't 5-star but there is plenty to choose from (cooked breakfast, fruit, cereals, pastries) and will get you started for the day. Dinner and lunch are better and worth trying at least once.

A couple of missing extras for me included a $1 charge for a razor blade and a $5 charge for a barista coffee at breakfast. Certainly paying for these items doesn't break the bank having forked out >$400 per night for your room, but it has become expected that such items are included given they are widely provided at no charge by other 'top end' hotels.

Overall a fantastic getaway and somewhere I will go back to.

Room Tip: The Cypress suites are located toward the back of the resort and are very peaceful. It is about a 5...

There is something really special about the Byron @ Byron. It is set in beautiful bushland, the service is amazing, the rooms are huge, the restaurant is wonderful. It is hard to fault this resort, in fact, I can't. It is about 6 mins drive from the city centre and there is the hotel shuttle which runs every few hours or you can easily take a taxi. I noticed many "girl's weekends" taking place whilst I was there but it is also the perfect romantic getaway. Stylish, sophisticated and gorgeous... highly recommend this resort.

This would be our 5th stay here & we love it! Love the rainforest setting, & access walk to beach(un-patrolled)the boardwalk area to take in the scenery & wild life is lovely!! We saw an echidna during this stay & snake previous stay:) it is a 5-10 min drive out of town but they do offer a shuttle throughout the day though if staying out later need to catch taxi or drive own vehicle. The rooms are lovely & modern with full kitchen, laundry, safe, plasma tv, beautiful comfy bedding/king size bed and the spa is heavenly!!(in spa deluxe room) the pool is huge & reception/lounge/day beds and dining is all beautiful. Check in/out was quick & staff are friendly. Room service is decent food but definitely recommend & prefer eating in the restaurant foods great there! Plenty of great restaurants/cafés available in town too. Only few suggestions for improvements.. I think for the price being paid the bikes available for hire could be offered free of charge and the aircon is quite loud during the night. Will def return for many years to come :)

A nice relaxed end to our honeymoon. We stayed for one weekend just before leaving Byron. Was a great way to just completely relax before heading back to reality. The walk around the resort is lovely, food at the restaurant isn't bad (except the dessert chef got a little carried away with her decorations and gave our vegan visitor, meringue/egg on her plate.
The staff are very relaxed here, but still polite and do a good job.
The major letdown for me was the bathroom - it's not a quality fit out and feels a bit more like luxury camping than a 5 star resort. The spa bath faces a very ugly shower (reminiscent of a urinal in full stainless steel) and because the spa is hollow, once on, you can't relax because the noise vibrates all around you.
I enjoyed the room service, well stocked mini bar, great place to zone out, read a book and listen to the birds. A weekend was just right - any longer you might get bored.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Rivergum block after walking around and checking out the suites on arrival. Nice and...
