The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa

77–97 Broken Head Road
Byron Bay , New South Wales , Australia

About 75 minutes by air from Sydney, Byron Bay has long been known for its pristine sands and stunning headlands. Now, with this posh new Balinese-style eco-resort, the laid-back beach town has a hotel that’s worthy of the setting. Set within a 45-acre rain forest, Byron at Byron Resort & Spa was designed by local architect Ed Haysom to blend into the natural canopy. The open plan of the main building flows between indoors and out: wide, covered verandas are furnished with cane lounges and slow-turning ceiling fans. The alfresco restaurant serves mod Oz delicacies with a refined twist. Take a 10-minute tour through the rain forest to the unspoiled Tallow Beach, or just sit back at Byron’s infinity pool and poolside sauna and soak in the natural setting.
