Adults only retreat

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Jan 2024via mobile
This was a lovely tranquil place away from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay. We stayed in Villa 1 which was lovely and secluded. The villa was comfortable and clean. The grounds of the retreat are spacious with views around the local countryside. The swimming pool, although small was good for a dip. You do need a car to stay here. Food can be ordered 24 hours in advance, but we chose to have breakfast in Bangalow about 15-20 minutes drive away. We self catered in the evenings, buying food from local Aldi and Woolworths. There is a kitchen but the area closes at 4pm. The staff here were friendly and helpful.
Date of stay: January 2024
Room Tip: Adults only. Good place for total relaxation. Collect your dishes/cutlery from Reception early in...

This week we took a 4 day trip to Byron Bay from Monday to Thursday. We stayed at the Cape Byron Retreat. Even though from all the photos it seems like it is out of town it was really close. About 5 minutes drive and you were in the heart of Byron Bay.

We had made plans to take walks through near bye rain forrest to discover waterfalls etc, but upon arrival were overcome by the peace and serenity of the retreat. We settled in for a chill 4 days. Made great use of the pool, hot tubs and BBQ area.

While you could order a breakfast box from the retreat we decided to self cater. We made a trip to the Woolworths store near bye and were set for most meals. We did go the Mez Club in Byron Bay one evening for dinner and it was very good.

Being an Adults Only retreat it was quiet and peaceful and you could completely relax by the pool. Service provided by Marcella was fantastic. The rooms were well appointed and everything was clean and tidy.

If you are looking for somewhere to chill in a country setting but still only 5 minutes from everything in Byron Bay, this is the place to stay!

Room tip: Relax and enjoy the serenity.

A few minutes from Byron center this hotel is a small refuge, great for those looking for contact with nature and rest.
It's possible to wake up with the sound of birds and have breakfast delivered to the door of the room. I highlight as the best of the stay the massage service, the jacuzzi (great view at sunset) and the staff.

Room tip: You need your own transportation

Being greeted by the amazing and friendly Marcella was the start of a great weekend. Marcella was super friendly and made me feel like I was in paradise from the moment I arrived. When looking for a gem of a hideaway not far from Byron town, you can't beat Cape Byron Retreat. While watching the sunset from either the gazebo or the spa I felt like I could have been in the middle of nowhere. Yet this gem is located only 8min from Byron Bay town and about 15min to The Farm and 3 Blue Ducks. For me it was an easy Uber ride into The Mez restaurant in Byron after a champagne at sunset in the gazebo.

If you want the best of being away yet access to great restaurants and the beach, this is an amazing retreat for couples. The room is getting a little old and does need an update but still well-appointed for a weekend away.

Room tip: The suite is fitted brilliantly for wine and cheese but not if you want to cook in.

Excellent property for people who want to be a short drive from Byron, however in a pretyy quiet location with fantastic hinterland views. We stayed in the Sanctuary Suite and it wa spacious and very comfortable.

The staff were lovely and completely relaxed - which is just what we were looking for.

Byron in winter outside of school holidays was magic - almost like turning back the clock 20 years.

This was an amazing experience. Very claming and stunning setting.

King Room is amazing! Decor and layout is exceptional, with relaxing terrace porch, along side of internal access to communal facilities which are there if needed including kitchen and additional sitting areas.

The nature of the retreat is beautiful, a goreous setting with bird sounds, multiple day beds options, outdoor spas, hammocks and more makes for a tranquil escape.

There are also beautiful healing crystals scattered throughout the resort, from beautiful geodes, Rose quartz, amethyst and alot more.

Everything is layed out well, so that there are multiple spaces and locations for you to enjoy each other's company privately.

There is a beautiful peacock which graces you with his precesense occasionally, and is a real treat.

Front of Staff is Amazing, Marcella has a beautiful Ora, and is professional and on top of everything.

The resort is close to the main Beach and streets of Byron by car, ( you couldn't walk there) but we loved the location and think it is definetly worth a stay.

I Reccommend Booking directly through Cape Byron Retreat website for the best deals. As they are not a large corporation, this helps to support these amazing run places by booking directly, so they can keep profits in the business and keep the exceptional level of care and service going.

Thank You Cape Byron Retreat
For an Amazing stay!
2 nights wasn't enough, but so glad we found your Retreat.
