Alive & Kicking Opening Party


Posted on 2 Mar 2016

A lavish opening pool party was held at the resort on the 25th January 2016 to welcome the community and provide a sneak peek at the resorts offerings before officially opening to the public on Monday February 1st 2016.

The team behind the resort proved the fuss has all been worth it, providing an unforgettable experience for the 200+ invited guests. Among the guests were operators of the major Byron festivals including Splendour in the Grass, BluesFest, Byron Falls Festival and Byron Bay Writers Festival (which will continue to be held at Elements of Byron) and local identities including Rusty Miller and Byron’s dancing man Tommy Franklin.

Guests were treated to the new Veuve Clicquot Rich upon arrival. As they moved into the “Heart of the Bay” beachfront precinct they enjoyed six styles from the oyster bar and a range of treats from Executive Chef Justin Dingle-Garciyya and his team, including Crab stuffed dough nuts, Black garlic, Caviar and Cured salmon. This was followed by more substantial fare around the infinity lagoon pool including Crispy pork belly, seared scallops, Rare tuna, nori, chipotle aioli and Pulled lamb, sour dough, candied apple. Fine Robert Oatley wines flowed and local brews were dispensed from Stone and Wood’s retro caravan Clyde. To conclude the dining experience Banana pistachio flat breads accompanied by Vanilla bean labneh were enjoyed.

There were tours of the resort, a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony, horses, a helicopter, drummers and fire twirlers, musicians all evening and to end the night, a DJ with dancing aplenty.

Peggy Flannery, the resorts owner said “this was our chance to kick up our heels with our friends, business partners and local supporters before we open to the public on Monday. We were all very moved to receive such positive feedback.”

Thank you to everyone that shared this moment with us!
