More to Elements of Byron


Alluxia favourite Elements of Byron is set for a relaunch in October with expanded leisure, accommodation and education offerings.

With nature and conservation remaining at its heart, Elements of Byron's fifty acres site will be relaunched with a dozen new and revamped leisure areas including a new adults only 25 metre heated pool with swim-up bar and new childrens' playground. The 850,000 litre signature lagoon pool within the central leisure precinct has been heated in time for the cooler months and this area is being expanded with a new timber play space.

A new Eco Education Centre will provide a hub for the local community and resort guests to learn about sustainable living including food production. The Centre will be 100% solar powered and include productive market gardens that will provide food for the resort's restaurants.

The resort recently hosted the inaugural 'Byron Bay Fine Food & Beverage Festival' which we hope becomes a regular fixture on the foodie event calendar.


Executive Chef Simon Jones recently joined Elements of Byron to head the culinary team. Jones trained under Raymond Blanc in Oxfordshire, England and later worked as Head Chef at Marco Pierre White's infamous one Michelin starred L'Escargot in London. "I looked at Elements of Byron and saw the huge potential" said Jones. Guests will be able to choose from five dining outlets including the private Beach Club on the sands of Belongil Beach, which will reopen permanently by Christmas.

Late last year, we were privileged to receive a hardhat tour of the new villas being crafted within an entirely new section of the property surrounded by forest and creek. 99 villas are being constructed, 68 of which represent an entirely new concept in resort accommodation. These 111m2 fully serviced two-bedroom deluxe beach houses are intended as homes away from home for families and small groups seeking inspiration from nature. Guests will unwind in outdoor rooms with fireplaces and soak up the elements in verandah bathhouses in self-contained villas with full kitchens and laundry facilities.


Wellness activities continue to expand, with complimentary guided rainforest and guided bird, beach and history tours the throughout the week. Charming onsite stables are a hub for forest or beach horse riding and the range of complimentary activities includes daily yoga classes, tennis, an outdoor fitness circuit, indoor gym and fire pit Fridays.

And in what is believed to be a world first, through separate not-for-profit Byron Bay Railroad Company the owners of Elements of Byron are delivering a solar powered two-carriage train to link Byron township with the burgeoning North Beach precinct. Byron residents and visitors will be able to ride the heritage train along the 3km coastal track. Further information can be found at
