cgolis 24/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

We stayed for 5 nights. This a great resort at one of the best holiday locations in NSW. The pools are heated with one for children and one for adults. The staff are terrific and the food was excellent. We have promised ourselves a return trip.

Everything was just amazing - the staff, facilities and rooms were all perfect!! Thank you for a wonderful stay! Would be great to offer a shuttle into town. Our room wasn’t cleaned for the whole 5 days because we had the do not disturb on (which we didn’t realise) would’ve been good to get a call to ask if we fancied a clean room!

Beautiful facilities, excellent food and great service.

A lovely relaxing getaway. Beautiful food and facilities. Looking forward to returning in summer to enjoy the pool! All of the pillows on the bed in the Villa that I stayed in (number 42) smelled like damp/mouldy. They need to be changed.

Linda M. Couples - 29/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Spread out over beautiful bushland setting . Spotlessly clean villas. Fantastic service in all department staff couldn't be more helpful nothing was too much trouble. Food is magnificent in all restaurants and breakfast amazing fresh locally sourced food too which is great. The beach and bush walks are great. There is also an adult only pool which adds a nice touch. On a cold night it is nice to sit around the fire pit and have a cocktail or wine . We didnt try the free morning outdoor yoga but heard it was great . We had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay . Definately would return .

great ambiance at elements.

Mark M. Couples - 28/06/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Always a great stay even with the covid adjustments. Only thing is the bed in 47 is very soft and doesn't hold your body well. It may need replacing . We have noticed the change over time and have even asked for the bed to be turned upside down to be a little more supportive. otherwise perfect.

First time stay but won’t be our last

Great experience from the moment you drive in the front gate, was welcomed by the team and given a tour of where our villa was, beautifully designed and appointed villa with everything you could need, amazing views!!! Even with COVID19 restrictions the team at elements made my wife’s birthday celebrations special, didn’t realise how family friendly the resort is, will definitely return with the kids next time, or not

Great Family Holiday

marksewell2019 Family - 09/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We travelled as a family with Children for 7 days to Elements. The trip was great and the service and attitude at Elements was superb. The only resort in Byron so close to the beach and town. There was a train to take you to the town,.

Loved the tranquility and ambience of the property.Great breakfast, though a bit pricey.Loved the beach yoga and rainforest walks and the warm pools.It would be nice of the hotel provided at least 2 complimentary shuttles to Byron Bay city centre.

Awesome stay at Elements

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

timbo1terrors2017 Couples - 08/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

We had a great stay at elements of Byron, friendly staff, fantastic facilities, beautifully clean and lux accomodation, right on the beautiful beach front by which you can walk up into Byron if you enjoy a good walk along the beach. Being picky our only disappointment was that the Accor membership card is no longer eligible at breakfast, as a result I would say that breakfast at the resort no longer represents good value. But that’s a small gripe and I only mention so other card holders are aware. Overall an excellent stay and we can’t wait to go back.

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Elements of Byron and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Elements of Byron

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

GregandJudy9 Couples - 26/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

The relaxed beachside bungalow layout and eco friendly feel was inviting, right on the beachfront looking back down the beach to Byron's hub and Lighthouse in the distance rather than being trapped in Byron, in the thick of things with limited central parking, and visitors moving like lava on busy weekends. If you want to visit Byron's hub from the resort, an easy half hour walk down the beach, or... two minutes to the unique solar rail will have you there in 15 mins. This marvellous blend of solar / battery technology and historic carriage system is ingenious. The staff are great, and the food is fresh and innovative. Having to pay extra for a not so good "barista" coffee, and the water in the dispenser to make tea at breakfast needs to be hotter, minor qualms in an overall relaxing mid week experience.

Thank you for your review. Feedback is extremely important to our resort, allowing our team to make continuous improvements to ensure each guest experience meets expectation. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort soon.

sarahpC4471OW Family - 23/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Very clean and lots of great amenities! Staff is very friendly. Will definitely return should we ever return to down under :) Pool is very clean and a great place to relax. This property has its own access to the beach and the grounds have lots to do! My son enjoyed the giant chess board and playing Bocce ball.

Thank you for choosing to stay at Elements of Byron and for your wonderful review. We're glad to hear you had a great stay.

Perfect location. Peaceful quality place to stay.

J8406XDtraceyl Family - 06/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

From the moment you arrive the attitude and service is well above expectations. As you walk into the villa it has a wonderful modern and stylish appeal set amongst the natural environment. The luxurious bed is amazing. Food at the restaurant is also quality and rounds out a perfect place for any holiday. Our only regret is we couldn’t stay longer!

Thank you for your review. We are happy you had a fantastic time while on vacation at Elements of Byron. We hope to see you again soon.

Byron Bay stopover

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

K3166UTrickh Business - 05/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

Overpriced try hard place to stay that is ‘sort of in Byron’ but you need to get a taxi to actually be in Byron. You pay premium $ to sleep in what is basically a mobile home on stumps. Suggest there are plenty of better places to stay that are actually in Byron!

Thank you for reviewing Elements of Byron, our sincerest apologies your experience fell below expectation. Our luxury villas are beautifully designed for intimacy and convenience, whilst also being ecofriendly. A short stroll from reception will take guests to North Beach station where they can catch the Byron Bay train into the centre of town and back again, adding convenience to their day.

Serenity in the madness

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Christopher R Couples - 09/02/2018 TripAdvisor review

We had stayed in Byron Bay recently, only closer to the centre of town. Even though out of school holidays we found the town area overrun with people. The peak times of the day were useless to travel in a car anywhere near town, even driving to and from. Staying at Elements - this was all avoided. If you can be independent for a few days and maybe walk into the town centre, if necessity has it, along the beachfront - then this is the place to be. This is a relaxing slightly remote area to the north of Byron centre, where you have access to the bush walks and beach without having to drive. The layout and construction of the walks is fantastic, putting you in a bash scenario within seconds of leaving your room if you wish. The facilities are fabulous, and as an middle aged couple we actually enjoyed the main pool with its vastness. The room was nicely decorated, quite open, balanced and thought out. We had a studio - Lagoon Edge Villa. This was nice in that we had access to the laundry which was a great (free) facility to have when traveling. The walk to the pool(s) or main pavilion also quite easy, and then a little further to the beach. The gym was not too bad but with 4 or more people we found it difficult to maneuver, not bad technology based equipment though. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and the quality was great. We were happy with our selection and possible options. Most people should find more than one to their liking. Wouldn't say it was as good as the Sofitel on the Gold Coast where we had stayed prior but very happy we stayed and ate here. This is quiet and peaceful for the most part. The staff all doing their part to make your stay feel seamless. High on the list to visit again.

Thank you for taking the time to review Elements of Byron. Our staff are an asset to our resort with every effort made to ensure guests are looked after from the moment they check-in to the moment they check-out, feeling fully rested from their stay. We hope to see you again.

Great property, friendly staff, I would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to relax and unwind.

351denices Family - 01/02/2018 TripAdvisor review

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and provided a great overview of the resort and its facilities. The Villa was the perfect size for us and was close to the beachfront and pool. There was a great selection of food by the pool and in the restaurants. We will definitely be going back!

Thank you for taking the time to review Elements of Byron. We hope to see you back at the resort soon for a relaxing vacation.
