Two architect designed pavilions. Two ways to stay. Ideal for a couple or family.

Set amongst extensive tropical gardens on a 50 acre property, The Lily Pad is located just a few minutes from Byron Bay’s vibrant town and iconic beaches. You’ll enjoy the best of both worlds when you stay. It’s private, relaxing and exclusive – and yet so very close to everything.

The Lily Pad has two accommodation pavilions, the Studio and the Retreat, located next to each other. While there’s the option to book one or both pavilions, only one set of guests stays at The Lily Pad at any time, so your privacy is assured. A couple may book just the Studio pavilion, while a family can add the Retreat pavilion to provide additional sleeping and living space for two extra people.

It’s flexible, versatile and exclusively yours!

“Too many positives to just focus on one! The lily pad is truly a slice of heaven in a chilled out oasis. Truly an experience we won’t forget! Big pat on the back to the owners!! Nature has given them a remarkable setting to which they have done justice to. Well done indeed! Thank you ever so much again for a truly unforgettable, unique and professionally and lovingly made slice of heaven that is The Lily Pad.” – Guests, Nov 2016

“Our stay at the lily pad was absolutely wonderful. This delightful, lovely, secluded bungalow was situated in the eucalyptus forest just outside Byron Bay, only minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our hosts were some of the nicest people we’ve ever met, and provided us with an incredibly clean, comfortable and welcoming retreat. We certainly plan to return next year, and will be booking with Julie and Paul.” – Guests, Dec 2022
