About The Botanica Rainforest Day Spa

We are situated on 9 hectares, which we have owned and cared for since 1990 and has been certified organic since 1998. Set in a beautiful and secluded rainforest valley Botanica’s landscape is rich with native wildlife, birds and flowers. It’s music is the wind and racing sky. The short journey here, is in itself, magical.

And in winter, it is just gorgeous, warm days, blue skies and crisp nights.

We are a small family-run business with a strong commitment to a healthy, organic lifestyle.

You can come for the day or even half.

You can stay overnight in your own very private suite in the rainforest with all the creature comforts.

And we can cook for you.

The in-house Italian cook creates delicious light cuisine – Venetian style using only the very best organic produce from our own certified organic garden or our local suppliers and farmers markets for which the region is renowned.

The land is also planted with citrus trees, tamarillos, avocados, ginger, turmeric and flowering plants in abundance.

As for our beauty treatments Botanica selects only ultra premium botanical skin care products and fresh organic fruit and vegetables all of which feed, nourish and uplift not only your skin but your entire self.

All our water is sourced from the mountain spring high up on the property.

We would like to acknowledge the local Arakwal Bundjalung people and the greater Bundjalung Nation as traditional owners and custodians of this land and pay our respects to elders past, present and future.

What Our Clients Say

  • This place is more than a day spa, we loved the drive from byron through the hinterlands and we're pleasantly welcomed by Gemma at her amazing retreat. Private spa, sauna, plunge pool, freshly picked fruit from the property, green tea and sunshine over looking the valley to start, followed by a delightful massage. We'll definitely be back and might even stay the night!

  • We came here for the day for my best friend's hen's weekend. It was so beautiful and relaxing and exactly what we were looking for! There were 7 of us and we were all catered for perfectly! I had a massage, facial and a foot treatment and it was so divine. We were able to choose the treatments that suited us all, and the surroundings helped us relax even more! We had the whole place to ourselves and spent the day between treatments in the sauna, spa and plunge pool. And the lunch was also delicious. Highly recommended for a couples retreat or group event! Gemma was an excellent host. We came here for the day for my best friend's hen's weekend. It was so beautiful and relaxing and exactly what we were looking for!

Gemma made me feel so welcome, the retreat was picture perfect, the treatments were absolutely amazing and never have I felt so relaxed and to top it off I enjoyed a traditional Italian lunch made from Stefano's organic garden.

  • I needed a break from everything and this was the perfect retreat to recharge. Completely secluded in the rainforest, a hidden gem. The treatment was sublime, the food delicious and wholesome. Gemma massaged all the stress and tension away and Stephano cooked food from his organic garden which was absolutely divine. I felt totally taken care of and away from all the busyness of life. The location is so quiet, peaceful and gorgeous. A swimming pool filled with spring water, a luscious spa, wood fired sauna and a beautiful studio which overlooks the rainforest. I will be regularly coming here to nourish my mind body and soul.

  • Gemma and Stefano have thought of everything. Very private and tranquil setting. Not only do you have access to the loft but also the bath house (incl sauna, infinity edge pool and spa over looking the valley and bath tub and massage tables). The attention to detail was awesome: the meals were tailored, perfect to our food requirements, they noted what food we were eating and replenished it before we ran out and the spa is emptied between guests and filled with spring water so no chemicals needed, wow! They were very generous with their time helping us make outside fire pits.

  • Finding Botanica was like striking gold! I was keen to find a day spa during a week's trip to Byron Bay. While there were plenty to choose from across the price spectrum, Botanica Rainforst appealed because it involved a little journey into the rainforest and was completely secluded. The day spa, with its sauna, spa and plunge pool is only available to one person or couple at a time! Despite its small size, the experience and expertise was up there with any high-end luxury spa. I had a one-hour massage followed by a facial, I felt fantastic after. The hilly rainforest surrounds were incredible, even the drive there was relaxing. Packages started from $130, very reasonable given the quality and in comparison to the higher-priced spas in Byron Bay. There is also adjacent accommodation available. A very special and memorable experience thanks to the outdoor setting, lovely staff and having everything to ourselves.

  • Once we arrived we were treated to a swim, spa and sauna complemented by freshly squeezed organic tangerine juice and herbal teas. I was then indulged with the best body scrub and massage i have ever had followed by a walk around the lovely grounds and to top it all of we were absolutely delighted with a beautiful lunch made with organic produce from the garden, i savoured every bite. Thanks you so much for such a lovely unforgettable day, i would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to escape to heaven for a day or even a night.

  • Wow, just back from an overnight stay in beautiful Botanica spa with 3 girlfriends. What an inspiring , amazing place. Gemma and Stefano , as hosts, were impeccable in their service and hospitality with great attention to detail and fantastic food delivered to our table. The surrounding vista is sooo relaxing and inspiring and lying in the infinity pool looking out over the hinterland was dreamlike. Massage and yoga were top notch and sauna and spa a delight. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone and will definitely go back with my hubby for a couples treat.
