If you like your nature with a touch of luxury (or vice versa), then Elements of Byron is the place to be. With everything you look for in a truly indulgent stay—from the most romantic, expansive views of Byron Bay’s best beaches to a chic restaurant, enormous, adults-only swimming pool, day spa, private beach access and more.
Elements is located on Byron’s Sunrise Beach, a short drive from the hustle and bustle of busy Byron, tucked away behind the town’s funky industrial estate where many of the locals live.
The villas are modern luxury meets cozy beach hut. The intention to take advantage of the natural environment is clear, with windows that invite in the light and lush surrounds, walls adorned with nature-inspired artworks and a minimalist, organic design. You can choose a room to suit your budget, from beautifully simple studios starting at $445 per night to deluxe two-bedroom villas with a kitchen, fireplace, indoor and outdoor living areas and a luxurious bath from $895.
After a deeply restful night’s sleep in your cloud-like bed, you can float your way to a sunrise yoga class taught by one of Byron’s most experienced teachers, overlooking the town’s famous beaches. You have private access to the beach, which is just a stone’s throw away, but it’s possible you’ll be just as satisfied escaping the crowds and soaking up some serious serenity within the comfort of the resort.
There’s no shortage of food options—from the chic restaurant overlooking the pool that serves up delectable, local fare, to the Botanica Beach Club that offers guests their very own, quirky beach bar on the sand. You can even opt to have food delivered from the restaurant right to your villa door.
The on-site spa offers a seriously scrumptious smorgasbord of spa treatments with the most tempting and luxurious body rituals and treats on offer. Think facials, massages and spa rituals that use nature-inspired products and leave you feeling ultimately rejuvenated, renewed and completely pampered.
The environment is woven into the philosophies of Elements, and the resort is committed to allowing the natural surroundings to flourish within the space. It’s the perfect place to enjoy Australia’s capital of health and healing!
