This Japanese-style couples retreat and spa, set in a forest of hoop pines, is four kilometres – and a world away – from the fast-beating heart of central Byron.
The five suites are relatively small, to let the natural surroundings shine, with beds and baths facing floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the green views inside. Each room also has a private deck,
for organic breakfasts with the birds; there’s also an intimate dining area with an open fire near reception.
Japanese touches enhance the serenity: cherry blossom bed linen, cotton yukata instead of bathrobes, Japanese wind chimes and stepping stones through the Zen-style garden.
