All you have to do is pack your bags, make your way to this boutique beachside destination and prepare for some serious R&R!
Arrive to Mantra on Salt Beach and check-in. Take a moment to feel the sea breeze on your face. Take a deep breath and exhale. You’ve arrived. Your relaxing getaway starts now.
Settle in to your room. Whether you’ve driven or flown in, travel is always a great excuse to take a nap and rest. Set your iDevice to airplane mode and get used to a slower-pace.
Now you’re rested and ready to explore, take a short stroll down to Salt Beach. Feel the sand beneath your feet and let the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing around you inspire a real estate search for that perfect holiday house.
After heading back to your room, celebrate your first night with dinner at Season Restaurant (and take advantage of the 15% discount included in your stay). Inspired by the abundance of local produce, enjoy a menu of seasonal dishes by Chef Michael Lee. We think the season tasting menu is the best way to experience the expertise of Chef Lee and indulge in the region’s best produce.
With taste-buds satisfied, it’s time to nestle into bed (take advantage of #robelife) and pick a classic to watch from Mantra’s complimentary in-house movies before falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean.
Take advantage of your coastal destination with a morning walk along the beach before enjoying the buffet breakfast at your leisure. Fueled for the day ahead, pick up your bicycles (2hrs free hire included in your stay) and take in the sights of Kingscliff by bike.
If you’ve got a car, buckle up and take a 30min road trip to Byron Bay and surrounds. Stop for lunch at acclaimed restaurant Harvest in Newrybar and explore Newrybar Merchants boutique across the road before heading into Bangalow and Byron proper. Don’t forget to stop at The Farm for some afternoon tea on the way home. And, if you need more Byron tips check out our blog on 10 Free Things to do with the Kids in Byron Bay or Byron Bay's Best Markets.
No car? No sweat. Get a taxi to local favourite Taverna and enjoy a traditional Greek lunch that’ll have you thinking you’re in Santorini without the jetlag before walking back (around 30 mins) to Mantra and taking in a spot of afternoon reading by the pool or getting in a holiday-work out in the on-site gym.
Dinner options are a plenty in Kingscliff and there’s something for every taste bud and budget.
Rise and shine! Breakfast is provided for you and pairs well with a sleep in and walk along the beach.
With nothing but time, book in for a restorative massage or facial at The Spa at Salt. Using Aveda products, The Spa at Salt embrace relaxation and rejuvenation of your body, mind and spirit.
After a morning at the spa, your tummy might be rumbling. Take a short drive or (bus ride if you’re keen) to Cabarita acclaimed Paper Daisy restaurant. Set amongst an interior to rival any Hampton’s Beach Holiday House, this relaxed dining destination offers celebrates local flavours with menu items like King prawn sandwich with avocado & potato crisps. For a more formal lunch book a table ahead of time and order from the restaurant menu and for a casual lunch their bar menu is equally outstanding.
Hot tip? If all the energy you can muster after your spa indulgence is an afternoon nap and swim in the pool, don’t stress. Paper Daisy also do a wonderful set breakfast which you can look forward to tomorrow after checking-out from Mantra.
You’ve reset, recharged and found the joys of taking it slow. It’s time to rejoin the rat-race but with a more relaxed attitude after your Kingscliff getaway.
Take one last beach walk before heading for breakfast and checking out of Mantra on Salt Beach.
