Where the sun’s first rays touch Australia is Byron Bay, famous for its iconic beaches and alternative lifestyle, and a hinterland made lush by volcanic soil twenty million years old. Here deep rainforests, stunning waterfalls, hamlets and farmlands share the hills and valleys and sparkling views of the Pacific.
Nestled in the hills twelve minutes outside Byron, the BlueGreen Sanctuary invokes this overflowing beauty into five acres of paradise. A sanctuary that imparts serenity with its sublime landscaping, rolling lawns, gazebo over the lake, terraces and nooks, swings in the rainforest and wild ducks on the lake.
The name itself drew inspiration from its surroundings: ‘blue’ from the huge sky, the distant mountains; and ‘green’ from the rainforest trees, the gentle sloping lawns, the macadamia and coffee plantations that cushion the boundaries.
The dream was to create a sanctuary to host health retreats and family holidays with a selection of accommodation options and a yoga shala that merged with the environment and reflect the casual Byron Bay lifestyle. Handcrafted details enhance the sense of being part of nature; humble materials have been recycled, salvaged and re-imagined in unexpected ways that celebrate a spirit of creativity. A fusion of art and function, distilled to an ethos of simple luxury that nourishes the soul.
We are proud to offer The BlueGreen Sanctuary as a beautiful retreat space for 18 adults accommodated in the Villa, House and Loft and including a 22 foot meditation tipi, yoga shala, a gazebo over the lake (often used as a treatment room) and a firepit.
The BlueGreen Sanctuary may also be used over peak holiday periods for extended family gatherings or special occasions.
