"A lovely break."

"We went to Daydream Island for our anniversary just to have a relaxing few days away and we definitely got that. There were multiple pools, a few restaurants to eat at and heaps of activities to do. The only thing was the food and drinks were quite expensive, but they were delicious. Once you get there you can book other activities to do off the island. After spending a couple of days in the pools and island activities, we did a snorkelling tour which was amazing and we got to see a turtle! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to just get away and relax."

"Relaxing and romantic getaway."

"Such an amazing weekend away! It was so peaceful and the perfect escape from everyday busy life. The resort was beautiful, our room was huge and very close to the ocean. The staff were all very welcoming and the views were breathtaking. The hot springs were super relaxing! Couldn't recommend this more. PS. The chocolate brownie for dessert is a decision you won't regret!"

"We will definitely be back!"

"By far, the most stunning accommodation in all of Byron Bay. The room is luxurious, the bath is ginormous and very deep, the lush rainforest is magical, the infinity pool is breath taking, the staff go above and beyond to help. The meals at the restaurant are scrumptious, and the morning yoga class was a great way to start the day. I could not be happier with our experience, from purchasing the red balloon voucher, to checking out of the resort."

We are going to make this a yearly escape. There are not enough words to express how much we loved this. We didn't want to leave."

"One of the best experiences I have purchased!!"

"We had such a wonderful experience we barely left the hotel. There was a beautiful lagoon you could swim and snorkel in with live fish as well as a swimming pool and heated spa. Great selection at both the breakfast and dinner buffet at Citrique. The main shopping area and Cavill Ave was only a 10 minute stroll from the hotel."

"Above cloud 9."

"An absolutely amazing experience that I would highly recommend to everyone! The accommodation was in an amazing location with stunning views and modern facilities. Devouring a delicious 3 course meal that night tantalised the tastebuds. An early start the following morning created memories that we will cherish forever. The flight crew and pilots were super friendly and informative and incredibly experienced. Although it was an overcast day, the moment we burst through the clouds was like entering heaven! To top off the whole experience it was finished with a delicious buffet breakfast feast! Treat yourself to this amazing experience, you will not regret it!"
