albatross inn at the atlantic byron bay

Last week you may have spotted that I was holidaying in Byron Bay (A well earned break) it’s one of my favourite destinations to visit and luckily only a short flight away!

Of course we stayed at The Atlantic Byron Bay (my favourite place to stay in Byron Bay) The Atlantic simply is paradise. Set amongst a tropical corner at the back of town. I love staying here in in fact I have stayed here enough now to feel a part of the Atlantic family – the owners and staff are some of the best people you will find!

We lucky to be among some of the first to stay in their latest addition Albatross Inn. A collection of private en-suite cabins. The rooms are spacious and light and certainly don’t feel like a standard guest room they are complete with private terraces and outdoor showers. Ajoining is a shade shack a perfect spot to prepare your own breakfast , have a drink or a BBQ. This new lodging at the back of the property feels really private. I love the use of colour and the evolution of the decorating by owner Kimberly Amos and her talented family along with favourite local makers and suppliers – there’s touches of the sea and desert combined to create a cool but relaxed place to stay.

The Atlantic family love to Travel, you can see their inspiration everywhere.  There’s something magic that happens when you check in here – suddenly you’re on Atlantic (Byron) time, relaxed with all you need to think about is where you want to swim and where you want to eat or get a drink!

There is only one Atlantic! and it is a special place.

MJG favourite – the atlantic byron

The Atlantic Byron Bay is like no other place, it’s my favourite place to stay away from home. Its cool, relaxed and total paradise. Situated in town its a close walk to all Byron has to offer, be it a place to eat, drink or swim. If you haven’t stayed here I suggest you do ASAP

You may recognise a number of shots were taken here for my most recent book Holiday at Home

Here take a look around the grounds at some of my favourite spots

pretty n pink

A picture tells a thousand stories. The Paul Smith store on Melrose in LA is iconic and photographed often it’s the perfect shade of pink especially on a perfect blue sky day because you have to love that contrast!
