Photos & Story Nicole Snow

 

Owners Debbie and Lindon created this sustainable retreat in the centre of hip Byron Bay. 28 Degrees is not only the name of the getaway but its literal address on earth, 28 degrees 38’31”S153  36’42” to be exact! The 28th parallel to the south of the Tropic of Capricorn is an address shared with Norfolk Island, Easter Island and the Northern Cape of South Africa. Blessed with a year round subtropical climate and an extravagant, natural display of endless sweeping beaches, rainforests and green hinterland, 28 Degrees was created as a place for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Byron Bay is well known for being a place of holidays, healing and nature but before you begin to explore the outdoors, welcome to your home away from home at 28 Degrees.

Debbie and Lindon believe in making their environmental footprint as light as can be. Everything at 28 Degrees is sourced locally and consciously. From the bathroom’s lotions to the bed linen, even the floorboards are made from recycled French Oak, with a Rubio stain and finished with a non-toxic low USO coating.

state of calm

Luxurious and beautifully decorated, 28 Degrees is a private oasis. The complimentary mini bar includes locally made teas, coffee, granola, nuts and  homemade fruit compote. Like a never-ending packet of Tim Tams these treats are regularly replenished. Novels and magazines from the local bookstore abound as there is no in-room television. Instead, guests are invited to find a sense of calm and peace during their stay. 28 Degrees suggests connecting with the natural surrounds and disconnecting from screens and devices. Perhaps a rare gift in our hectic world.

Guests can take a dip in your own private plunge pool or enjoy a massage or treatment. For the perfect ambience, guests can light the pure beeswax candles provided. It’s relaxation and peace all around.

When you are feeling a little adventurous there are bikes on hand to help with getting around. The streets in Byron Bay in peak season in particular can be busy so either walk or peddle! Everything is so close to home as you are located steps away from one of the world’s finest beaches.

Every detail at 28 Degrees has been carefully designed and considered. Get away, kick off your shoes and enjoy the barefoot luxury.
