This Japanese-style couples retreat and spa, set in a forest of hoop pines, is four kilometres – and a world away – from the fast-beating heart of central Byron. The five suites let the natural surroundings shine: beds and baths face floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the green views inside. Each room also has a private deck for organic breakfasts with the birds (there’s an intimate dining area with an open fire near reception, too). Japanese touches enhance the serenity: cherry-blossom bed linen, cotton yukata instead of bathrobes, Japanese wind chimes and stepping stones through the Zen-style garden.
