Our stay in The Edge villa took us into our own little world for four days and we struggled to leave. Such a beautiful setting and space to inhabit. No intrusions but a great welcome also and hosts around if needed for anything - and beautiful breakfast goods delivered everyday as selected. We felt very welcome and looked after but... More

Strap yourselves in folks, for if you succumb to the beauty of the Koonyum Range that warmly embraces this Ridge Retreat, you are likely to never want to leave. Celebrating our 22nd anniversary and in search of purity, rebirth and divinity to reflect on the years that we have spent together, the Lotus Villa was perfect. The Villa offers uninterrupted...

Last weekend my 'husband' and I eloped to Koonyum Range Retreat. We stayed in the Edge Villa for three nights, our expectations were surpassed from the accommodation, food, service, to the view.....the view!!! The only negative is the private spa turned by newly blonde highlights green, thankfully this was after the wedding ceremony! Easily avoidable by just not getting your... More

Spending two days in this magical space was a dream come true. So bright and full of life. Epic views, privacy and solitude with sophistication and absolute comfort. Thank you so much.

My husband and I had recently gotten married in April and decided to hold off for our honeymoon for a bit. We decided to stay at a place that was quite and away from our busy mon-fri stressful work schedules. We had found Koonyum and thought it would be wonderful place to just go away and hide.

If you're looking for a romantic getaway you can't go past this place! We stayed in the lotus villa and it was perfect for us. A breakfast hamper was included and refilled on request (I suggest getting extras from the closest shop like bacon, extra bread, tomatoes etc) As you are so secluded from the nearest main town come prepared...

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.

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

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
