So........ this is a 5 star resort. And mostly was one... we did find a nappy under the bed.... the service around the pool was a little off. As i ordered black tea. It came white and was told basically to bad.( This really is the biggest complaint.) The food in restaurant was faultless . Would definitely recommend this place. Its not cheap. But well worth it

Situated north of Byron Bay in a very peaceful location adjacent to the littoral rainforest. Fabulous huge lagoon swimming pool with cafe service as well as beach bar. Excellent restaurant food in dining room. Modern private bungalows well fitted out and surrounded by beautiful native gardens. A short walk to a little tourist train which goes to the centre of BB without having to battle the traffic so adds to the relaxed vibe.

Great facilities and location. Unfortunately we had rain and cold weather the whole time and weren't able to use the facilities. The only criticism food was expensive (found 2 hairs in my cooked breakfast) and cocktails were $20 each. Pillows were also very uncomfortable and soft
