Elements of Byron is an absolute beachfront resort on fifty acres at Northbeach, Belongil, accessed via Bayshore Drive over the railway line. Nearing completion are 94 private 1 and 2 bedroom villas and the resort facilities which include a five suite garden spa, two unique restaurant offerings, private dining room, casual terrace dining with wood fired oven, lobby bar with sunken fire pit, kiosk for public beach access and substantial conference, wedding and events spaces both indoor and out. Overnight guests will enjoy possibly Australia’s most luxurious infinity lagoon pool precinct.
The private villas are set amidst the four endemic site ecologies of rainforest, wetland, eucalypt and dunal, which has inspired the colour schemes and finishes. Each villa has its own unique outlook, some of the beach, others over the central Lagoon. Three pavilions make up the central facilities area, a uniquely sensual space with its curved roof inspired by the sand dunes on the north eastern boundary of the resort.
“We understand that we are very privileged to be operating a world class resort on this site” said Leon Pink. “We have created experiences for guests to let them know about the four unique ecologies present here. We have created subtle learning tools, through our landscape design, our in-room iPad information brochures, our guided walks, our signage and lighting, our artworks, the intention behind our interiors, in fact behind every design decision. What we now need is ambassadors to tell the story. Through their work, through their spirit and passion, through their smiles hopefully. A business is nothing without people and we are short around 100 at present”.
