Accor to open resort in Australia's Byron Bay

An AUS$100m beachfront resort with extensive conference facilities is taking shape on Belongil Beach in Byron Bay in Australia.

The resort, named 'Elements of Byron', is being constructed on a site that encompasses rainforest, lakes and two kilometres of beach frontage. It is due for completion by Christmas 2015.

Accor Hotel Group has signed an agreement with Elements of Byron under its boutique luxury brand, The MGallery Collection.

The resort will include state-of-the-art conference facilties in a dedicated conference wing, with four flexible spaces catering for up to 400 delegates, supported by adjacent break-out garden courtyards, poolside and beachfront locations offering views across the Bay to Cape Byron Lighthouse.  

"This landmark, beachfront resort in Byron Bay will be a major boost for the NSW tourist economy," said Accor Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath. "We congratulate the owners on their amazing vision which is evident in the resort’s thoughtful design".

Upon arrival guests will pass by water and fire elements into the contoured main pavilion, with a curved roof symbolising the sand dunes along the beach frontage. Three separate pavilions make up the central resort and leisure facilities, with a signature restaurant and lobby bar, poolside bar and kiosk, gymnasium and five-suite garden spa.
