SPOTLIGHT ON: HALCYON HOUSE
Now, this is your next beach holiday destination.
Think hot Summer days, sun beaming, lazing by the pool with an Aperol Spritz on the shores of the beautiful Cabarita Beach in northern NSW.
Yep, thats my idea of relaxation.
A stunning display of renewed architecture, something that strikes me as a mix between the white towns of Santorini and mid-century Palm Springs vibes. Not to mention the divine interiors, by the one and only, Anna Spiro.
The luxury property boasts 21 uniquely designed and decorated rooms, along with the necessities of such a beach holiday.. an amazing restaurant, by the name of Paper Daisy and of course, the Halcyon Spa.
Now, lets take a look at these rooms. In classic ‘Anna Spiro’ style, each room inherits its own unique identity. From stunning patterned upholstery and wall paper, to each individual detail in the use of beautiful antique furniture pieces, each room hosts its own special link with the beachside setting, all the while, with a touch of glam.
The bathrooms are also characteristically unique, each with a differently patterned encaustic tile that ensure a pop of colour, with classic handmade wall tiles, brass tapware and before you ask... yes, a stunning soaking bath.
In need of a feed? Well you won’t need to travel far from your room. Hatted & award-winning restaurant, Paper Daisy, run by executive chef Jason Barratt, situates itself perfectly for you to pop down to have a couple of cocktails and a light dinner at the bar, which will slowly turn into dessert and 3 bottles of wine between two. You can stumble back to your room with no trouble.
Another stunning display of interior design, the gorgeous arched doorways open up poolside, while hosting a rustic beachside style with a side of glam, yet again. Not to mention the mouth-watering menu... anyone for some Oysters?
The spa is nothing short of a treat. Anna Spiro does it again, and again… and again.
Beautifully styled rooms, each hosting a unique colour scheme. You know how usually when you get a good spa massage, you end up dreaming and drooling because its so good? Well sorry to say, you might want to try your hardest to keep those eyes wide open, just to keep staring at these gorgeous interiors.
Offerings include your classic spa treatments as well as customised treatments. Only the best products are used here... with the likes of the beautiful Sodashi skincare.
