We were looking for a incredible location to have an Elopement Wedding for just us and 2 witnesses to share our day. We found Koonyum Range Retreat online and was amazed by the amazing pictures.
I contacted Koonyum through their website and they were more than happy to provide a package including organizing the celebrant and make up. Piari was also great allowing us to view the property while we were in Byron for a weekend visit.
Leading up to the day, Piari and Kirstie were happy to answer any questions and also provided information on getting a treatment done while staying there and kept us posted closer to the date and made sure we had directions and a suggested list of preferred photographers etc.
The location was amazing and everything we had hoped for with our big day. We stayed in the Koonyum Villa and the spa on the deck was amazing. Only draw back, there is no table and chairs on the deck - would be great to be able to eat on the deck and take in the view.
Piari made us an amazing dinner for our wedding night and everything was so relaxed, including the facial I had onsite and their choice of make up artist and celebrant were all great.
Its definitely a location you can go to for a relaxed private retreat.
From our experience Koonyum is set up as a private retreat where you are left to your own devices (no phones!) where you can come to relax without interruptions from the outside world. Piari is only a phone call away at the main house if you need anything and was more than happy to help with anything leading up to and on our actual visit.
We will definitely be back!!!
