After a $6 million refresh the resort will be unveiled, and we hear that it will be more reflective of an ongoing commitment to sustainability and “seamless integration” with the surrounding environment.
This is in line with Crystalbrook Collection’s ethos and will present responsible luxury and sustainable travel by making use of upcycled, recycled and locally sourced materials.
General manager of Byron at Byron, Julian Moore said: “We are looking forward to welcoming guests back to the resort, both locals and travellers alike. 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.”
Phase one will be unveiled on 1 September 2020 and will include a new restaurant offering showcasing sustainable and local produce, with 80 percent of all ingredients sourced within a three-hour drive from Byron. Phase two will include updated guest suites and a new Eléme Day Spa, which plans to be unveiled in November 2020 and this is exciting for massage lovers because Eléme has partnered with Byron Bay’s Cura Co. Lab to develop custom-made eco-conscious therapeutic oils.
Refreshed guest suites have been named to reflect the resort’s setting, from Rainforest Suite and Treetops Suite, to Rainforest Luxe Suite and Treetops Luxe Suites and it will extend its offering to include a two-bedroom Rainforest Luxe Suite and a two-bedroom Treetops Luxe Suite.
The Rainforest Suites on the lower level look into the rainforest while the Treetops Suites on the upper level offer elevated views of the rainforest. All suites offer fully-enclosed front and rear verandahs, rainforest showers, freestanding deep soak bathtubs and separate living areas.
In addition, 90 percent of all printed collateral has also been removed from the resort through the introduction of touch-free paperless check-in and checkout along with in-room Apple iPad control centres.
Mindfully Safe was launched by Crystalbrook Collection in response to Covid-19. The programme focuses on reducing travel anxiety by providing mindfulness and meditation tools developed in partnership with mental-wellbeing group The Indigo Project. Crystalbrook will also donate $5 to mental support service Beyond Blue for every stay booked directly until the end of 2020. Mindfully Safe also incorporates cash free transactions and heightened deep-cleaning hygiene measures.
