Majestic Luxury Absolute Beach Front Accommodation
Celebrate the opening to the Public of Byron's exclusive Absolute Beachfront Haven "Shambhala".
Individual cottage rates start at just $329 per night for a seven night booking. One off cleaning and linen fee is extra.
Previously known as Byron's retreat for the Stars now this showpiece property is within reach of all that crave luxury within the lush rain forest setting right on the beach.
In the exclusive enclave of Belongil Beach is Byron's best kept secret for those looking for uniqueness, majestic views and indulgence right on the oceanfront.
Come to escape and set your spirit free. Hidden among the rain forest canopy are the uniquely designed tree houses of Shambhala.
The size and configurations range to cater for small groups, families, couples or even individuals (renting the private Shiva Retreat) for an unforgettable and royal experience. Children are welcome in the Sarita & Shanti Houses only (Samadhi and Shiva are for couples and individuals exclusively).
Be inspired by this Hidden Paradise (Shambhala) with its green emerald pebbled lanes and secluded spots where the sounds of the birds and waterfalls naturally soothe the senses, together with the healing energy of quartz and crystals which abound throughout the gardens. Or simply relax in the sauna, steam room, or one of our outdoor jet stream Jacuzzi's.
If its activity you crave, exercise in the indoor fitness centre with the calming sounds of the ocean to help motivate you to stick to your regime. If you would like to brush up on your postures or simply meet new people one of Byron's leading Yoga Studios is a short stroll just up the road.
The property has two large sundecks each with a gourmet BBQ and dining table for 6 with stunning uninterrupted ocean views and spectacular sunsets. Our Bali daybed accommodates up to 6 friends but the most popular combination is just of 2. The love seat and hammocks are available to lounge around all day. And at night these allow a great way to wind down from the beach together with the outside bath or spa under the moonlight and starry sky.
Your totally private access to Belongil beach allows seclusion from the sun loving crowds yet its an easy 15 minute walk along the beach to the center of Byron Bay.
Or head in the other direction which takes you through the nature reserve of nestling birds beside the glistering blue waters of the Bay where dolphins and Humpback whales (during season) dive and play.
These unique Tree House Retreats are self contained with kitchens and have flat screen Plasma Televisions. Wireless broadband is available together with Foxtel. Reverse cycle air-conditioning is provided and all windows are fully screened. Laundry facilities are also available.
Kitchens are equipped with all modern appliances (microwave, oven, fridge, toaster, kettle) and enable you with all you need to cook your own feast. If you prefer there are Cafes just up the road for meals and cocktails.
In the Bathrooms showers come with rain water heads. Thick luxury bath towels and colourful beach towels are provided for your convenience.
This is truly a place of dreams and imagination, with the majestic private beach just outside your front door by day contrasted by the ambient mood of the resort at night, created through its amazing water features and wonderful colours shining through the forest.
The unique combination of rain forest and ocean front provides the perfect combination to escape the busy rigors of everyday life, re-energize and expand your awareness in the delight of this Garden of Eden. This romantic getaway will help you celebrate a new relationship or renew the sparkle in a mature one opening your hearts and allowing your soul to sing in the private playground of mother nature.
