Free Whale Watching Adventure

Seasoned hoteliers Lyn and John Parche understand the value of world class natural assets. Joint General Managers of the celebrated Byron at Byron Resort and Spa, the Parche’s have managed resorts and hotels in all corners of the globe.

They were headhunted by larrikin furniture baron Gerry Harvey to develop and run his luxury Byron Bay resort in 2004 and since that time have achieved accolade upon accolade, including The Australian annual Travel & Tourism Awards Best Resort Accommodation (under 100 rooms) and “Best Hosted Accommodation in Australia” in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards.

“When we first came to Byron Bay we were stunned by the beauty” said Lyn Parche. “The Northern Rivers is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery we have ever experienced. And the mix of alternate, surfing and personal reinvention cultures here means there is always lively debate, music and colour”.

The Parches and their internationally experienced team have capitalised on these natural assets. The Byron at Byron offers intimate visits to the local farmers market with Head Chef Gavin Hughes, full and half day trips into the region’s hinterland villages and a restaurant serving local, seasonal and largely organic fare. Not to mention a complimentary daily yoga class for all resort guests.

“Our guests lead busy lives and require intensive relaxation and rejuvenation during their limited holiday time’’ says Ms Parche. ‘’We try and offer many opportunities for wellness and healing onsite, as well as a chance to have a local Byron experience ’’.

The combination has proven a winner, with celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Ben Harper, Moby, Barry Humphries, Pat Rafter, Bernard Fanning, Michael Klim, Kostya Tszyu, Tara Reid and John Mayer visiting the resort.
