Resort to close for month

The award-winning Byron at Byron Resort and Spa will be closed for just over a month from June 1 while storm-damaged roofs are replaced.

Resort general manager, John Parché, said the roofs were damaged in the hail storm of October 2008, along with many others at Byron Bay.

“The work needed to be done and in the end we felt that the noise and inconvenience to guests was not an option,” he said.

“So we chose the quietest time of year to close and are using the time to our advantage to bring the resort up to sparkling as new condition”.

The Byron at Byron opened its doors to guests in December 2004 and has since won many awards.

Although the general public will not be able to access the resort during the five weeks of work, resort staff will still be on site to handle telephone and email inquiries.

The resort is expected to reopen on July 5 with what Mr Parché says will be a renewed focus on local patrons in the restaurant and a new rainforest meditation walk.

“Until June it’s business as usual and we welcome locals to our resort,” he said.
