My husband and I spent 6 glorious nights at Planula B and B Retreat in Byron bay over the new year. I found this place through the internet and booked online. I was so impressed by the charm of the rainforest retreat and the graciousness of our hosts Wendy and Tim . Our room was very comfortable. I loved the room fan because it was very humid in Byron (.I prefer a fan to air conditioning ...it is much healthier)
The frogs, lizards and beautiful birdlife in Planula made our stay feel like we were deep in tropical forests yet we were just 3 km away from the buzz of Byron Bay. I also loved reading and dozing in the hammock on the wooden deck. We had access to the kitchen and lounge room at all times and so it felt very homely. Our hosts were mindful of our privacy but were also available for a chat and gave us good advice about local happenings . Breakfast was served in a continental way . Wendy is a wonderful baker and each morning we were greeted with freshly home baked bread, muffins and fruit platters.(the raspberry and white chocolate muffins were amazing ) I would highly recommend Planula for a relaxing and rejuvenating getaway. We will certainly return
