Inside a Treetops Luxe Suite Bedroom.

Crystalbrook Collection is putting the finishing touches on the first of two phases in a major AUD$6 million refurbishment of its recently-acquired Byron at Byron retreat in northern NSW.

Set to be unveiled in September, the revamped property will reopen with a new-look restaurant offering sustainable produce sourced within a three-hour drive of the resort.

Phase two of the refurbishments will see the resort open newly-refreshed guest suites, all named to suit their natural surroundings, with guests able to book Rainforest Suites, Rainforest Luxe Suite or a two bedroom Rainforest Luxe Suite for larger groups, all offering leafy outlooks into the forest. Guests seeking a view over the top of the forest can book the Treetops Suite, Treetops Luxe Suites or another two-bedroom variant.

Crystalbrook’s Eleme Spa brand will open in Byron Bay in November 2020.

All accommodations feature front and rear verandahs, rainforest showers, deep soaking bathtubs and separate living areas. EJE Architecture has been commissioned to oversee the refurbishment, with interiors by Suede Interior Design.

Also opening as part of the resort’s second phase in November will be the addition of Byron at Byron’s new Eleme Day Spa, the same spa brand operating at Crystalbrook Collection’s other resorts in Sydney and North Queensland.

Byron at Byron General Manager, Julian Moore, said the property was looking forward to welcoming guests from local areas and farther afield back to the resort.

“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,” Moore said.
