All we needed was a moment to take a breath and recharge and Koonyum Retreat was the perfect place to do it! We stayed at the Koonyum Villa with myself, my husband and two children. Sunken spa on the veranda overlooking the ocean and bush, log fire to warm the whole place, the most comfy bed linen and awesome kitchen... More

This is a potentially nice getaway. The view is spectacular and there is an amazing infinity pool just begging to be used. Unfortunately during our stay (winter) the pool wasn't heated and was left unused. During our honeymoon road trip we were excited to check into the Koonyum Range Retreat. We were unable to decipher what the differences in the... More

Upmost pleasure to be had here Words are hard used to describe the vibe and detail of this magical mountain side pad. Not only was everything offered to be catered for, the great little town of Mullumbimby sparks a great little place to visit and relax. The Edge villa we stayed in was perfect! A well designed humble and slick... More

We chose the Edge Villa elopement package as we wanted a 100% stress free wedding away from our busy lives. . The place was a little difficult to find despite trying out best to follow the directions but the serenity, aspect and views wouldn't be possible had it been anywhere else. We arrived to a romantic turn down complete with... More

Located on the edge of an escarpment overlooking the green valley and hills around Mullumbimby, the views alone are worth staying for. Booked rhe poolside suite originally as a surprise for my partner, but had a clash with dates meant we had to postpone. As we were within the two week cutoff we potentially had to forfiet our 50% deposit,... More

We stayed in the poolside studio at Koonyum Retreat this weekend. I honestly cant explain the breathtaking view from our balcony, the photos don't do it justice! Sue and the team (including Sammy the dog) couldn't have made us feel more welcome and provided us with a gorgeous breakfast with lots of choice every morning. The studio had excellent appliances...

Influenced by reviews and friendly helpful phone conversations with staff at Koonyum Range offered the change of scenery and tranquility needed after a torrid time with a family health issue.

My husband and I booked here for our wedding anniversary. From the good reviews and the website we expected luxury accommodation and little need to explore or eat outside the villa. We booked massages and dinners through the accommodation as part of the romantic package. Positives: - The view. - Is pretty nice. But that is it. Does not compensate... More

The Lotus Villa was really lovely, great views to the coast but we were not too impressed with the horrible road in. No street signs or property signs to head you in the right direction so very easy to get lost. Road was that bad that we didn't want to be driving home in the dark so I ended up... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, we are happy you loved the Lotus Villa and views! As our location is on top of the escarpment bordering with the national park, the last 1.8 klm of road is unsealed, which could take you by surprise if you were not expecting it. We are sorry if...

We arrived hoping for some time out after a very difficult few weeks. We left feeling reconnected, revitalised and very very fortunate. The sound of the breeze through the trees during the night was so very soothing, the views were spectacular and the bed was so comfortable. Thoroughly recommend this retreat if you need to de-stress and reconnect with nature

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
