We are back from Byron Bay and had the most beautiful stay (despite arriving along with a cyclone) at Elements of Byron! If you follow along on social, you would’ve seen peeks of this stunning resort on my Instagram stories. I couldn’t wait to share all the photos with you.
Drawing inspiration from its tropical surroundings, Elements of Byron is a resort part of AccorHotel’s M Gallery by Sofitel collection. It is a luxurious beachfront property with 193 private villas over 50 acres that overlook ocean, forest, lake or pond. There are 2 pools (including an adult only with its own swim up bar), beach lounge, beach club, fire pit, tennis courts, restaurant and 2 bars. It’s what you’d call barefoot luxury.
As wellness is a core part of Elements of Byron, you will find gym and spa facilities. Osprey Spa is known as one of Byron’s premier spas featuring handpicked therapists and tailored spa experiences. It is open to resort guests and the public.
Breakfast is served daily at Azure Bar and Grill with an option of a buffet offering up fresh juices, pastries, granola and yoghurt, while an a la carte menu features avocado toast and smoothie bowls.
The pools really are the heart of the resort with multiple cabanas, swinging chairs and lounges for endless relaxation. At sunset on Fridays, the fire pit is lit and people gather indulging in cocktails. Unfortunately the weather didn’t hold up during our stay so we didn’t get to enjoy the private beach access or lagoon pool, but I already know I’ll have to come back for it.
We stayed in the Botanical villa which was surrounded by lush, tropical greens and was only a short walk from the adults pool. The design is contemporary and understated with lots of light always flooding in. The bathrooms are huge with the deep bathtub being a main feature. Even though the kitchen, lounge and office are all in the same room, they are very well segregated which makes the villa seem even bigger.
Sunday Chapter stayed as a guest at Elements of Byron. All opinions are my own.
