We arrived very late at night. It was dark and we didn't see much at first. It was a dark and chilly night but we were too excited to get cold. There was a lovely Edge Villa waiting for us, just in the middle of nowhere. We had a really comfortable living-room with a cosy kitchen space. The fridge was... More

Went to Koonyum Range Retreat for my birthday. It was a lovely choice by my partner. The people were always helpful and obliging, the place was beautiful and the view was superb. Even when it was raining, we were sitting in the hot spa at night enjoying the sounds, the stars and the view. We stayed at "the Edge" and... More

Hi Michael, Thank you for your review. It's wonderful to hear that you had a great birthday weekend away, and enjoyed the spa despite the rain, and your hot stone massages. Nothing better than a relaxing holiday with a massage thrown in! Warm Regards, Piari & Miki More

My friends, myself and my husband visited the Koonyum Range Retreat in early August 2014. We stayed for 3 nights in Koonyum Villa (two bedroom, two bathroom accommodation) and had the best of times. We were welcomed by a friendly staff who provided a great service without being too much "in your face". The Villa has fantastic views from both... More

What a beautiful place to spend your honeymoon. Amazing service, breath taking views and a great place to get away from it all. The heated outdoor spa is delightful. So relaxing. A great BBQ to cook meals. Will definitely be back.

Sometimes, accommodation reviews can be tempered by expectations, both good and bad. Certainly, when you are seeking a bit of five-star luxury to rejuvenate, the critical senses are frequently exposed. “Will it be worth it?” “Will it really match the claims to refresh the senses, pamper, luxuriate” and other such descriptors? In the case of the Koonyum Retreat, I can... More

Thanks to all for a truly relaxing experience. The view took my breath away. The accommodation was fantastic, really comfortable and plenty of room. Staff are friendly and nothing was too much trouble. To make this place even better you could add some sort of outdoor heating. Although the days were glorious and we spent them relaxing on the beautiful... More

We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary this week-end and stayed in the Edge Villa. The views are spectacular. Mick and Patsy were very welcoming and provided exceptional service.

We had one of the most relaxing getaways in a long time. It does not get much better. Tranquil setting with beautiful morning sunrise over the hills and the ocean. Yoga, massages, spa, and trips to Byron Bay eateries, life is good up there. Highly recomended. Sorin O.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our private, award winning sanctuary is nestled among billowing eucalyptus with stunning panoramic ocean views. Perched on the edge of an amazing cliff, Koonyum Range Retreat offers ultimate rejuvenation and the perfect escape. Breathtaking ocean views across rolling hills, and beautiful sunrises in the privacy of your very own sunlit villa or studio, are just the beginning. Here time flows to the gentle pulse of nature. Koonyum Range Retreat is nothing short of spectacular. Just far enough away to be secluded, but only a short distance to both Byron Bay and Mullumbimby, our retreat is ideal for a romantic getaway, honeymoon, fun adventure, or a rejuvenating rest, where you can escape your busy life to enjoy special moments. Our 3 luxurious boutique villas and studio are suited to couples looking for that extra special romantic getaway or honeymoon, or singles looking for a self-indulgent break. We also have a beautifully appointed private studio located below the Main House next to the Infinity Pool with it's own separate entrance. Each villa has beautiful Japanese inspired red cedar interiors, providing a luxurious haven within cool Mediterranean style rendered walls, beautiful bedrooms, and spectacular views from your very own privately heated mosaic or sunken deck spa. Our poolside studio features rendered walls, marble flooring, kingsize bed, beautiful views and is fully self contained with it's own balcony area. All of our villa guests are invited to use the stunning infinity pool and gazebo perched on the edge of an amazing cliff. The panoramic mountain range, complete with waterfall and ocean views, are some of the most spectacular to be seen anywhere in Australia. At Koonyum Range Retreat we can also provide the experience of delicious gourmet dining and relaxing treatments, all in the privacy of your very own villa. All rates include a Gourmet Breakfast Hamper. ... more   less
