Hot hotel: The Byron at Byron

The resort blends Byron Bay’s natural charm with state-of-the-art meeting facilities.

The Byron at Byron embodies all that the northern New South Wales region is renowned for: natural beauty, incredible food and, of course, that laid-back, friendly nature.

A quick 25-minute journey from Ballina Airport or 45 minutes from the Gold Coast’s Coolangatta Airport, The Byron at Byron feels like a private sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Coupled with high-quality conferencing facilities, the resort offers the perfect mix of work and play for corporate events with a difference.

Accommodation

The property features 91 self-contained suites, set amongst a 45-acre sub-tropical rainforest, which guests will journey through to reach their accommodation. The Deluxe Spa Suites are located in a secluded area of the resort and just a five minute walk to Tallow Beach.

The Superior and Standard Suites are positioned closer to the resort’s central facilities and conference rooms. Each suite features a separate lounge and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen and two enclosed balconies.

Conferencing

The Byron at Byron’s conference spaces can together host up to 160 delegates, with a combination of indoor and outdoor areas available. Located near the property’s main entrance are three purpose-built conference rooms, Tallow Creek Room, Wild Orchid Room and Scribbly Gum Room, which can be used individually or combined to create a 216-square-metre venue.

Surrounding the conference rooms is the Rainforest Verandah, ideal for breakout sessions, cocktail functions or dinners for up to 70 delegates. A number of outdoor spaces are also on offer, such as The Lawn, a versatile open space located in the heart of the resort and perfect for long-table dinners and cocktail events.

Further into the rainforest is the Lotus Garden, which can be utilised as a quiet breakout area or event space for up to 80 delegates.

Dining

Food and beverage is a key focus for The Byron at Byron, for both its leisure and conferencing guests. The resort’s signature dining concept, The Restaurant, recently received One Hat in the 2019 Good Food Guide, an exciting milestone for the property.

The accolade comes after Matthew Kemp joined as executive chef, tasked with evolving The Restaurant into a key dining destination in the Byron Bay region. Kemp’s menu showcases local produce that changes with the climate and season, influenced by Asian, modern Australian and European cuisines.

Guests can also enjoy a casual bite and expertly crafted cocktails at the new poolside Tallow Bar. For conference catering, a variety of options are available, such as shared table experiences, canapé options and degustation menus.

Relaxing 

The resort’s on-site day spa and wellness centre offers delegates an opportunity to relax after a  busy day of conferencing, while the property’s tennis court, gym and pool offer plenty of options or guests to get active.

The Byron at Byron can also arrange yoga, tai chi or meditation classes for groups led by a qualified instructor. Classes can be held by the pool, on the beach, within the rainforest or in several other locations throughout the resort.
