Have a peek at our curation of Byron Bay accommodation for different kinds of getaways you may have in mind. Whether you’re looking for seaside relaxation or want to be surrounded by tranquil hinterlands, we’ve got hideaways waiting for you…

An Escape on the Edge

Cliffside properties have a unique charm—perhaps it’s the lofty perch, or maybe it’s the feeling of being on the edge. Ecoasis Wellness Sanctuary perfectly combines the beauty of its rugged surroundings with stylish and luxurious accommodations.

At Ecoasis Wellness Sanctuary, Smiths Creek you’ll feel as if you’re floating amidst the hinterland’s flora as you overlook sweeping valleys in your private chalet. Each of the 6 two-storey chalets comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, viewing deck, and spa or clawfoot baths. It’s home away from home—30 minutes away from Byron Bay—where you can enjoy the sounds of birds and the calming rustling of trees.

Byron Bay Accommodation Out in the Open

Open air and a seemingly endless field of green—Cape Byron Retreat and 99 Acres Bangalow Retreat will spoil you with hinterland serenity, leaving you feeling refreshed and free of worries. Light-filled and beautifully appointed rooms with access to verdant fields? Yes, please!

Cape Byron Retreat is an undisturbed hinterland sanctuary less than 10 minutes away from Byron Bay. It does feel like you’re transported miles away from it all when you arrive at this idyllic location. This adults-only retreat has a pool, outdoor spas, and a yoga pavilion where you can soak in the views. A place where you can indulge, reconnect, and rebalance while surrounded by nature.

99 Acres Bangalow

If you prefer self-catering Byron Bay accommodation, 99 Acres Bangalow Retreat is a wonderful choice where you can enjoy the hinterland and beyond. This family-owned retreat is a short walk away from Bangalow Village and is situated atop one of the highest ridges in the area, affording you 360-degree views. The laid-back atmosphere and villas of this sub-tropical rural getaway are definitely hard to resist.

Timeless Classics

Timeless and intimate, Victoria’s getaways are wonderful examples of bespoke luxury accommodation. Similar yet with an atmosphere of their own, let’s get to know Victoria’s at Wategos and Victoria’s at Ewingsdale…

If you’re a fan of Tuscan-style interior design, you’re going to love Victoria’s at Wategos. Right under the Cape Byron Lighthouse, this getaway has beautifully furnished rooms with stone and marble interiors, spa bathrooms, and specially designed furniture adorning each of the spacious rooms. It has a solar-heated lap pool and another one with a waterfall, tropical landscaped gardens, and plenty of indoor lounge spaces where you can sit back and relax.

Victoria’s at Ewingsdale on the other hand is a picturesque country manor that seems to have sprung to life from a fairy tale. Guests are greeted by an open log fireplace as they make their way to elegantly-furnished guest rooms with classic European interiors, and a private balcony or courtyard. Indulge in the comfort of your private guest room with its beautiful en suite, or take a dip in the stunning saltwater swimming pool.

Asian-Inspired Stays

You don’t have to book international flights to be surrounded by Balinese and Japanese design styles. Byron Bay’s hinterlands provide the perfect backdrop to channel Bali’s lush forests and Japan’s tranquil gardens as shown by The Garden Burees and Azabu Boutique Accommodation.

The Garden Burees has 7 guest rooms complete with kitchenettes and private balconies. You can choose from chalets and burees that can sleep 2 up to 6 guests, with the latter showcasing Balinese flair. For romantic getaways, we especially love the Garden Buree with its double spa bath and private outdoor shower.

Azabu Boutique Accommodation on the other hand is a Japanese-inspired boutique escape in Skinners Shoot, just 5 minutes away from Byron Bay’s beaches and local attractions. It has only 5 suites, also making it ideal for a romantic escape. What’s special about Azabu Boutique Accommodation is the open-plan layout of the interiors with shoji screen panels and polished floorboards for that authentic Japanese vibe. On top of that, it has an on-site day spa where you can enjoy Japanese tea, heated spa facilities, and luxurious pampering therapies!
