Renowned Byron Bay resort, Byron at Byron, has revealed a first-look at its $6 million renovation, ahead of its reopening on 1 September 2020.
Following its sale to Crystalbrook Collection, the NSW North Coast resort has undergone a significant transformation to bring it in line with the brand’s luxury and sustainability ethos.
Phase one, to be unveiled on 1 September, includes a new restaurant showcasing sustainable and local produce, with 80 per cent of menu ingredients sourced within a three-hour drive from Byron Bay.
Phase two will include updated guest suites and a new Eléme Day Spa, set to be unveiled in November.
“We are looking forward to welcoming guests back to the resort, both locals and travellers alike,” said general manager Julian Moore.
“We are pleased to be returning with a more sustainable offering that supports the local community and shines a light on one the country’s most beautiful areas.”
Nestled within 45-acres of subtropical rainforest, Byron at Byron’s new look has been led by EJE Architecture and Suede Interior Design with a goal to celebrate the local environment and community.
The 92 refreshed guest suites have been aptly named to reflect the resort’s setting, including the Rainforest Suite and Treetops Suite, and offer fully-enclosed front and rear verandahs, rainforest showers, freestanding deep soak bathtubs and separate living areas.
In addition, 90 per cent of all printed collateral has been removed from the resort and replaced with initiatives such as touch-free, paperless check-in and check-out, along with in-room Apple iPad control centres.
Byron at Byron’s spa will reopen in November as Eléme Day Spa with a focus on ethically sourced ingredients and custom-made oils.
The resort also features three purpose-built conference rooms and ample outdoor event space.
As part of the resort’s refurbishment, a new garden event space will also be added, perfect for small cocktail events for up to 40 guests or seated long-table events of up to 20 guests.
