Luxury resort Byron at Byron, on the New South Wales North Coast, has officially joined Crystalbrook Collection’s portfolio today, 1 October 2019.
Now trading as Byron at Byron, a Crystalbrook Collection Resort, the property’s new owners aim to bring a renewed focus on sustainability and local partnerships to the fore.
Over the coming months, Crystalbrook Collection will replace all plastic water bottles with biodegradable cardboard water containers and will introduce pump-pack bathroom amenity bottles, wooden keys and in-room iPads to replace printed materials.
The team will also meet with 200 local businesses early next month in order to continue its relationships with local suppliers and maintain its commitment to sourcing 80 per cent of products from within three hours of Byron Bay.
Geoff York, Crystalbrook Collection interim CEO and group director of hotels, said this is a significant move for the group.
“Sustainable living is at the forefront of our mind in everything we do and deliver and with the Byron at Byron’s environmental stance and connection to the local community – it’s a natural fit,” he said.
“Byron Bay has always been a destination close to many Australian’s hearts, therefore we’re honoured that we can have a presence there and lead this property into its second life.”
Crystalbrook Collection has plans to enhance the resort in 2020, including a gradual series of soft refurbishment works to the suites and common areas with minimal impact on guests.
The beachfront resort is situated in 45-acres of subtropical rainforest and features 92 suites, an infinity pool, day spa, tennis court, restaurant and conference facilities.
