What You’ll Love

The Location – Waterfront luxury 30 minutes from Byron Bay, 20 minutes from the Gold Coast airport and two hours from Brisbane

Situated on the picturesque Cabarita Beach among the lush hills of Northern New South Wales and just two hours from Brisbane, Halcyon House is the ultimate secluded beachfront escape. Take in the view while indulging in a complimentary chef’s plate of fresh fruit, welcome drinks and a bottle of bubbly on arrival.

Whether it’s taking one of the complimentary bicycles for a ride or grabbing one of the in-house surfboards to catch a wave before breakfast, the way you’d like to spend your days is entirely up to you.

The Food – Enjoy daily à la carte breakfast from the sanctuary of your sun-drenched room

Leading the kitchen at Halcyon House is Chef Ben Devlin – who drove Paper Daisy to its commended win of NSW Regional Restaurant of the Year in the 2018 National Good Food Guide. Coming over from Brisbane’s three-hat restaurant, Esquire, Devlin uses the region’s unique produce to create memorable dining experiences for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Start each relaxing day with a delicious seasonal breakfast featuring mouth-watering dishes like kefir pancakes with macadamia cream and passionfruit, sobrasada with a fried egg and smoked bacon and hot smoked fish with scrambled eggs and cultured cream. Enjoy it from the gorgeous Paper Daisy restaurant or from the comfort of your chic, ocean-facing room.

After a sun-drenched morning on the golden sands of Cabarita beach, enjoy an extraordinary two-course lunch at Paper Daisy and feast on buttermilk-brined chicken with pine nuts and dill, grilled eggplant with cardamom and basil or grilled eggplant with mustard leaf and chickpea. Top it off with any of the amazing desserts – we'd try the grilled fig sorbet with fresh coconut cream and anise.

The Room – Toast to a luxurious stay with a bottle of prosecco on arrival

From the moment you set foot in the luxe sanctuary of your room, you’ll enjoy first-class service all the way. Stay for two nights or indulge in a three-night oceanfront escape featuring a private furnished courtyard with lawn access, a luxurious king-sized bed, sleek antique furniture, chic European finishes, classic white-tiled bathrooms, marble vanities and unique hand-made floor tiles, the sun-drenched Classic Room is the perfect place to relax in your robe and slippers, read the complimentary morning newspaper delivered daily and nosh on complimentary minibar snacks.

And if you'd like to unwind that little bit more, put your spa treatment credit for each guest towards an indulgent Nourishing Body Boost treatment that'll give you 90 minutes of full-body pampering at the stylish Halcyon Spa - a luxurious spa sanctuary that opened its doors in December last year.

Seaview Upgrade: Wake up on the second floor in 44sqm of chic sophistication to the sight of the South Pacific from your sun-drenched, north-facing private balcony with an upgrade to the romantic Ocean Superior Room.

After hearing all the hype about the hotel and restaurant expectations were very high. A quick overnight stay and expectations were well and truly met. From the room (with the most stunning bathroom tiles) to the staff and then Paper Daisy (we managed to squeeze in dinner,breakfast and lunch), this place is a must do. All the extra treats made it all the more special. True understated luxury in a unique setting. Halcyon House and Paper Daisy deserve continued success!!

If you are planning on going to Gold Coast there in no better place to stay than this Cool,Chic,Cozy & Amazing Hotel. Mauro the manager made us feel at home. The food is exquisite - don’t miss the macadamia crumpets for breakfast & the chicken for lunch. Each room is decorated in different colours,to detail. They have bikes & yoga classes plus the beach is one of the nicest I have ever been to. Can’t wait to go back.
