My boyfriend surprised me with a birthday getaway to Koonyum retreat and we stayed in the 'Edge Villa'. At the point of arrival as we walked in I was absolutely blown away by how spacious and beautifully kept the villa was and as we looked out the window the view was undoubtedly breathtaking. Dinner was already cooked and on warm... More

This was a last minuet snap decision getaway over the long weekend. We woke up, booked and took off, a little bit weary as we had not researched this place beforehand. We were absolutely blown away when we got there. I didn't even know a retreat to this kind of standard existed anywhere along the northern coast of NSW. The... More

We stayed at the Main House for a two night break / Girl's Weekend. The House is stunning, lots of space, huge kitchen, plenty of seating areas for 12 people. The views from the veranda and infinity pool were just breath-taking! Beautiful location, great for exploring Byron Bay. Highly recommend the villa as a base. Small negative was that the... More

The koonyum retreat is absolutely world class. The location and views are breathtaking and the comfort is unmatched. We honeymooned at the Edge Villa and opted for the home cooked and the gourmet meals. Both were high end restaurant quality. The serene location and well thought out and equipped villas provide the most romantic and relaxing getaway possible. Highly recommend... More

Stayed in The Main House which was amazing! Breathtaking views, absolute luxury. The star of the show for me was the infinity pool which was beautiful. Felt like a millionaire for the weekend. We had a private Yoga session and in the afternoon Pure Pleasure beauty massage. A trip we will all cherish.

We stayed 4 nights in the Koonyum Villa, with our nearly 5-year old daughter, and really enjoyed the stay. The location in the ranges behind Mullumbimby is stunning, with panoramic views over Mullumbimby to the sea and also of the adjacent National Park. The view changed daily for us, being above the clouds, in the clouds, clear, watching a storm... More
