It boasts a range of unique elements that are sure to please everyone from families and friends to the most discerning traveller. Escape life and embrace the magic of Broken Head!

The space
Designed by award-winning architect Harley Graham (HGA), The Eco Lodge is the latest addition to Byron Beach Retreats.

You will awaken each morning to the sounds of the ocean and birdlife and bathe in the dappled sunlight filtering through the treetops. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast as you take in the landscaped gardens and rainforest from the comfort of your expansive north-facing deck. Then, at dusk after a full day of beach activity and exploring, take a dip in the heated infinity-edge magnesium plunge pool or settle in with a glass of wine and be entertained by the abundant wildlife of Broken Head Nature Reserve. Pure bliss!

The Eco Lodge is designed with a minimal environmental footprint. Its extended flat, sloping rooflines are used to harvest and collect rainwater. At the same time, electricity is supplied by a 15kwt solar system on the roof. Smart glass windows control heat and light and retract and disappear to create a smooth transition from indoors to the vast wrap-around undercover deck. Natural light spills from skylights and light wells throughout the property and louvres are used extensively to enhance natural airflow.

This private sanctuary comprises of four north-facing bedrooms sleeping a total of eight guests. Each room provides luxurious, 5-star resort-style beds, three rooms with one king bed, the fourth bedroom with two singles. There is a total of three bathrooms, two of which are master ensuites. One features a deep free-standing bath inviting you to lay back and soak up the serenity as you unwind.

The contemporary open plan living, kitchen and dining areas flow seamlessly to create an unrivalled experience of light and space, which is further amplified by the soaring roofline. Thermal mass concrete floors provide natural insulation that is cooling in summer yet absorbs heat from the low lying sun to warm the entire house efficiently in winter.

A fully equipped chefs kitchen with its warm timber trims and top of the range appliances invites you to stay in and cook up a storm. A large island bench provides plenty of space for your family or guests to join in. Or if you prefer to cook outdoors, there is also a high-quality Weber BBQ.

Pack a picnic lunch and take a leisurely 7-minute stroll through the rainforest to a secluded ti-tree lake. Enjoy lunch, and a dip in the healing waters then continue on to Broken Head beach for hours of fun in the sun and surf. A stay at Beach Retreats Eco Lodge is a luxury experience you will not forget!
