Positioned beachside on Byron Bay’s iconic
Belongil Beach, Elements of Byron offers a
refined and tranquil haven on the outskirts of
Byron town, extending across fifty acres of
luscious rainforest and interconnected tea
tree creeks, lakes and ponds.
Inspired by and encompassed within
nature, the Elements property is home to
more than 19 rare and threatened
“Nature has always been a starting and
primary point for our inspiration and design.
Developments to the property during its
lifetime will maintain that philosophy and ethos,” says Jeremy Holmes, Development Director of
Elements of Byron.
The resort houses 203 rooms in total, including 99 new luxury two-bedroom, two-bathroom
rainforest villas – featuring timber decks, inbuilt fireplaces and luxurious veranda bathhouses.
The villas enable guests to unwind in the epitome of Byron Bay nature, offering
a perfect, private hideaway for those seeking to be energised and rejuvenated.
In addition to Elements of Byron’s 850,000-litre infinity lagoon pool, the resort also boasts an
adult’s pool surrounded by twenty individual cabanas. Positioned alongside is the swim up bar –
Summer Salt – serving guests refreshments from cocktails to cold pressed juices.
Should guests wish to experience a bar offering directly on the beach, the newly opened Botanica
Beach Club is the ideal option during the warmer months, offering both food and beverages.
As a part of the resort’s eco-friendly ethos, Elements of Byron incorporates sustainability into
its architecture through fostering a design that minimises energy and water consumption.
Passive solar and a water sensitive urban design contribute to increasing energy efficiency.
Each villa also houses an Energy Management System to monitor individual
energy use. These efforts have been proudly recognised by the Australian Institute of
Architects who awarded the resort with the Sustainability Award in 2017.
Adjacent to the resort is North Beach Station, which serves as a stop for the world’s first solar

Elements of Byron offers a range of activities for its guests – from daily yoga and meditation

sustainable living practices and food production.
From sustainable luxury villas to the resort’s plethora of activities to heal and renew, Elements
of Byron is a truly luxurious, Australian and Byron Bay nature experience like no other.

Open since February as a sanctuary for wellness within Elements of Byron resort, Osprey Spa
comprises five therapy suites with private courtyard gardens including a couples suite with
double shower and round outdoor stone bathing tub. There is a stillness and recovery zone, a
light filled mani pedi courtyard, an Issada make up station and a retail space where you can
sample or purchase natural treats like Dr Jean D Laing’s LaGaia hydraceutical range.
LaGaia was developed when Dr Laing was unable to source results driven skin care that did not
contain ingredients under consideration as
potentially biologically harmful. Containing
only the purest grades of precious metals,
the products focus on restoring the skin’s
natural PH balance.
