At the point of arrival as we walked in I was absolutely blown away by how spacious and beautifully kept the villa was and as we looked out the window the view was undoubtedly breathtaking.

This was a last minuet snap decision getaway over the long weekend. We woke up, booked and took off, a little bit weary as we had not researched this place beforehand.

Stayed in The Main House which was amazing! Breathtaking views, absolute luxury. The star of the show for me was the infinity pool which was beautiful. Felt like a millionaire for the weekend. We had a private Yoga session and in the afternoon Pure Pleasure beauty massage. A trip we will all cherish.

We stayed 4 nights in the Koonyum Villa, with our nearly 5-year old daughter, and really enjoyed the stay. The location in the ranges behind Mullumbimby is stunning, with panoramic views over Mullumbimby to the sea and also of the adjacent National Park. The view changed daily for us, being above the clouds, in the clouds, clear, watching a storm...

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
