The Crystalbrook Byron is a luxury hotel that celebrates nature, sustainability and eco-friendliness. Set in 45-acres of subtropical rainforest, the property, which used to be known as Byron at Byron, is remote enough to be considered a retreat, but close enough to the city centre to be a part of the action.
Offering 92 suites, which take the form of ground level ‘rainforest suites’ or first level ‘treetops suites’, all accommodation features a private bathroom with free toiletries, a rain shower and freestanding deep soak bathtub. They also have two rainforest-enclosed verandahs and a flat-screen TV with cable channels in both the living area and bedroom.
All suites boast kitchenettes with full-sized fridges and stove tops. But if you would rather not cook you can dine at Forest, the magnificent on-site restaurant. Offering lunch and dinner, they serve up sensational, seasonal menus based on a farm-to-plate philosophy, and a great range of local and international wines.
For those looking to relax their mind and bodies the Eléme Day Spa offers a world class range of treatments like facials, super-circulation stimulation, mammoth detoxification and skin firming. The retreat also offers free daily yoga classes, numerous hiking trails throughout the rainforest, and a 25 metre infinity pool where you can order cocktails.
