Concert goers who are seeking a quiet place to escape in their down time during Spelndour in the Grass 2010 should consider a stay at The Byron at Byron Resort.
Kiwi Insider Farah Khan stayed at this resort during Splendour in the Grass 2009 and loved hanging out with the stars while kicking back and relaxing without being too far away from the action.
Read her review of this stunning resort in Australia.
Byron Bay is famous for its rejuvenating and reenergizing resorts, great restaurants and relaxed beach lifestyle. But most of all, it’s renowned for hosting some of the greatest music events and festivals in the world – such as Splendour in the Grass.
For the last eight years, Splendour in the Grass has produced a lineup of some of the greatest international acts in the world. From Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol and MGMT to Queens of the Stone Age, Happy Mondays and Brian Wilson, Splendour covers all bases with the musically savvy and features something for everyone. Well, if you are one of the lucky 17,500 people who managed to get their hands on a ticket within five hours after they were released for sale, that is.
Although, be forewarned that this event is not for the faint hearted or the tired and in need of pampering either.
Ladies, leave your stilettos at home; here it is all about gumboots and rock chic, alcohol tolerance (for both those that do and don’t drink) and stamina. Starting at a rather early time of the day, you almost need your own personal bodyguard to maneuver past the masses of young partygoers leading you to the escape route which is none other than the VIP Shuttle. The shuttle takes you away from all the manic fun to the peaceful surroundings of the rainforest surrounding the magnificent Byron at Byron resort.
Byron at Byron encompasses Eco-Chic at its best. It is hard to believe that you are only a short distance away from all the mayhem at Splendour. Although, you’re not too far away as Byron at Byron is home during this festival to most of the leading acts.
From cooling off in the pool with Bloc Party to sharing a meal in the main foyer with MGMT or cocktails with Happy Mondays, this resort is a celebrity haven and a relaxing tranquil escape for the celebrities from all the cameras and madness of the festival.
The Byron at Byron resort as a whole embodies the open plan setting at its best. With clever architecture used throughout the resort, the suites are generous and well positioned complimenting the natural open surroundings. For those of you in need of some pampering, the Byron at Byron Spa provides you with the most luscious of treatments available.
Whether you’re a yummy mummy, on a lovers’ weekend or, in this case, looking for rejuvenation and relaxation during a crazy festival, this Spa has treatments for all those in need of a little bit of tailored attention.
So for those of you who are fortunate enough to be able to take a few extra days off work after the madness of Splendour in the Grass, I suggest that you stay back at Byron at Byron and indulge in the other thing that Byron is so famous for which is recovery and rehabilitation!
