Byron spa voted in top ten


Melinda Dunn

This week the Sydney Morning Herald announced Australia’s top ten hotel spas, and our very own Byron at Byron Spa and Wellness Centre is amongst them.

The ten top Spas hail from New South Wales (The Byron at Byron, Wolgan Valley Blue Mountains, Park Hyatt Sydney, The Darling Sydney, Lake Crackenback Resort Crackenback, Victoria (Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa Daylesford), Queensland (qualia Hamilton Island, Gwinganna Gold Coast, Silky Oaks Lodge Daintree) and Tasmania (Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge).

According to the report the treatments at The Spa and Wellness Centre at The Byron at Byron reflect “the Spirit of Byron”.

A survey of 6000 global travellers commissioned by Hilton Hotels and Resorts this year showed that for nearly half of respondents the existence of a hotel spa was an important factor in choosing where to stay. Of the Chinese travellers polled, 84% said the inclusion of a spa was important in the decision to choose a particular hotel, compared with 52% of Australians, 37% of Britons and 32% of Americans.

“Hotels are much more than a place to sleep” said Dave Horton, Hilton Hotel and Resorts’ Global Head. The research also highlighted the growing importance of men to the global spa industry.

Melinda Dunn, Spa Manager at The Byron at Byron, echoes this trend. “Our male clients, who sit at around 35% of our total client base, have been extending themselves beyond standard massages” she said. “They are incorporating enhancements such as hot stones and aromatherapy. We are also seeing men take up more treatments like mud wraps and facials. Men have always been fond of the Vichy shower, particularly surfers. And foot rituals always go down a treat with men”.

The Byron at Byron Spa and Wellness Centre houses six treatment rooms, an open air heated spa, steam room and luxurious relaxation space. The Spa prides itself on its signature treatments, such as the 90 minute Rainforest Body Ritual and the three hour Cypress Sojourn.

The Byron at Byron Spa and Wellness Centre is offering 90 minutes of massage time for the price of 60 until September 20. Valid Monday to Thursday.

“This special allows women and men to experience our Spa and see where it takes them” said Melinda. “We love our local clients, this is for them”.
