Whilst Byron Bay might be known for its backpacking scene and bohemian vibe, for guests looking for a more luxurious and opulent stay, Victoria’s at Wategos is the place to be. Located in one of Byron Bay’s most prized locations at Wategos Beach, this Tuscan-inspired villa offers 5-star luxury for those in search of a romantic getaway in one of Australia’s most iconic coastal destinations.
5-star luxury in Byron Bay: Victoria’s at Wategos
Given its popularity, Byron Bay is constantly buzzing but just a few kilometres east of the township, you’ll find Wategos Beach. Home to a quieter, more peaceful stretch of coastline, this area is a favourite amongst picnickers and families. Tucked away in the lush valley below the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse (the most easterly point in mainland Australia) and only a stone’s throw away from the beach, sits the lavish Victoria’s at Wategos.
Modelled on the style of a Tuscan villa, the guesthouse offers Deluxe Spa Suites with a choice of a queen or king-sized bed, spa bath and open-air balcony. The rooms are opulent with plush textiles, marble bathrooms and beautiful stonework.
The communal areas of the property are inviting and offer guests the chance to mingle with one another and enjoy the high-end facilities. A sumptuous continental breakfast is served every morning in the upstairs lounge overlooking the pool terrace. Come afternoon, guests can enjoy complimentary afternoon tea with freshly baked treats, tea and coffee. With not one but two lap pools (one solar heated), there is ample space to chill out and soak up the sunshine.
Things to do
Being located in such a lush, coastal area it would be a shame not to get out and explore it. Everything is on-hand for guests to make the most of the stunning location including beach chairs, umbrellas, surfboards, surf skis and binoculars. Go hiking up into the hills of the nearby Cape Byron walking track and spot bottlenose dolphins and whales.
For those craving opulence and grandeur, Victoria’s at Wategos is an ideal base for an intimate Byron Bay escape.
