Besakih is a tropical Asian styled apartment with a very large private garden,
conveniently located in a very quiet peaceful position, 100m stroll from Byron's
CBD and 100m to Main Beach (the only beach patrolled by Byron Surf Club).
Inside, antique teak wood and rattan Indonesian furniture, coupled with beautiful
bamboo timber floors, give the apartment a welcoming Balinese feel. There are
two bedrooms. The main has a queen bed whilst the second sleeps two in singles.
Both bedrooms overlook the private enclosed garden. A sofa lounge is available
should the bedding configuration not suit.
Besakih is completely self contained with laundry and complete kitchen.
The apartment has a private tropical garden, and there is a pavillion or bale to
relax and dine under. Large stone statues throughout the garden create a
wonderful tropical atmosphere. The garden is secure making it a great place for
young children to play.
Overall, Besakih offers guests a beautifully furnished private garden apartment
in a fabulous location and represents outstanding value for money! PLEASE NOTE:
this property is a privately owned apartment and as such is not part of a resort
or Apartment chain. We do not supply toiletries etc, but do provide clean bed
linen and towels. You are required to leave the property as you found it, clean
We will definitely come back. Lois was very helpful and the apartment was just
perfect for us. Great location, clean and courtyard for our small puppy :) can't
wait to book our next trip to Byron bay and we will stay at Besakih holiday

Lovely home with beautiful garden
A fantastic, well appointed property. Close to beach and shops but set back from
the 'main drag' so quiet at night. Lovely garden to sit in, and a great shower.

BYRON Bay Short Break
This is an excellent unit. Suits us perfectly. Has everything you need. Love the
ground floor unit as we are in our 60's - no stairs. Also has your own lock up

Perfect week-long 'Balinese' retreat
After a 14 hour drive from Canberra, we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming
and beautiful home to arrive at. The house was perfectly sized for the four of
us, with plenty of space to relax both inside and outside in between trips to
the beach. Close enough to town to walk in to town each day, but far enough away
to be out of the noise and hustle and bustle. The house was clean and tidy,
beautifully presented and really made you feel like you were in Bali (I was even
able to enjoy doing my daily yoga practice outside in the luscious courtyard of
a morning - what a treat!). A suggestion for other guests might be to bring a
power-board if you have a lot of electrical things to plug in - we had to unplug
a few appliances to make space for our phone chargers etc. - but that wasn't
really a problem. One extra pleasant surprise was finding the wonderful Byron
markets were held on weekends right across the road! Lois was easy to
communicate with, making the administrative side very simple. Would definitely
stay again in future and definitely recommend! Thanks so much, Lois. :-)

Perfect schoolies accommodation!
Our schoolies trip went perfectly thanks to our accommodation and landlady Lois.
Lois went out of her way to accommodate us, the apartment was perfect and
central to the main streets of Byron. We were directly opposite the markets and
only a super short walk from the beach, nightlife and shops. I would highly

We had a lovely stay at Besakih holiday apartment. A very quiet area yet a short
walk to everything. The apartment has absolutely everything you need and Lois is
a wonderful host. Bonus - the bed was probably more comfortable than my own!

We stayed at the Besakih Holiday Apartment for a girls weekend away and could
not have been happier! Perfect location, we could walk to everything! Everything
we needed was in the apartment, we never had to stress about a thing! Have
already recommended to several friends and we plan to make our Byron trip an
annual event and stay at Besakih every time.

Superb location in Byron
This is a lovely apartment in an excellent location. Peaceful and quiet but just
a short walk to all the cafes and shops and the beach. The apartment has a
lovely garden with outdoor settings. It is tastefully decorated and the bed was
so comfortable I want to buy one the same for home. All in all, would return in

Great location, not fully wheelchair accessible
We stayed at both Besikah and Batukaru and both were well maintained, clean,
lovely units within walking walking to main street. We wanted wheelchair
accessible rooms and although the units were on the ground floor, they wouldn't
be suitable for a high level of disability. Access into the unit is through a
fairly small doorway with a lip. The shower in Besikah is not accessible for
someone using a shower commode at all; the one in Batukaru was a slight
improvement but very tight and with a large lip into the shower. Other than
that, both rooms were clean and tidy, and owners were very gracious about
allowing us to check in earlier/out later.

We had a lovely, relaxed holiday at Besakih. So conveniently located and it was
great to have the garden. And the bed was super comfy!

Great little property
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and in a quiet location. Close to
shops and about a 400 metre stroll to the beach.
Sydney. 25 January 2014
This is a great apartment for a couple or small family, it is walking distance
from the centre of Byron & main beach, yet nice & quiet to escape all the goings
on of the town. The courtyard, patio & undercover gazebo are like your own
private oasis. Whilst its an apartment its incredibly private as it faces away
from the neighbours .Also Lois is very prompt, professional & easy to deal

Fantastic accommodation, very comfortable, had everything that we needed. Added
bonus was a FANTASTIC shower. Very lovely, highly recommended.

Very nice place to stay, the shower head was awesome!!! haha.
26 August 2013
Was the perfect place to spend 3 nights while moving to Brisbane from Sydney.
Accommodation was well equipped, spotless and had lots of interesting features
to make you feel at home. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation
to anyone. Would like to take my parents back there in the New Year and stay at
their other apartment. PS forgot to mention it is a fabulous location, quiet but
only a short walk to the high street. Perfect!!!

Excellent location & excellent value. Really clean and all amenities needed for
a weekend stay !

We loved this property and the gorgeous gardens. My husband and I are regular
travellers to Bali and we felt like we were back there. The furnishings,
ambience and lush tropical outdoors were a really relaxing place to be. The beds
were very comfortable, which is always appreciated and the proximity to town was
a real bonus. A couple of minutes walk and you are in the middle of town and at
the beach. We would happily return to this property and recommend it highly.

We stayed at Besakih for schoolies week and could not have been more happy! The
garden, particularly the little gazebo, was perfect for lounging, and the house
and its furnishings were gorgeous. Would definitely stay there again!

My family and i took a little break and we Absolutely loved the property. The
town and beach is literally a stone throw away and when you come back you can
still relax in the lovely tropical style garden. The owners can't do enough for
you. We have recommended to family and friends and we will definitely be back.
26 September 2012
What a gem! Wonderful garden, quiet, cool designs and a neat new bathroom. We
loved being so close to the beach, cafes and markets yet having Besakih as our
haven. Superb value. Thanks Lois for providing such a welcome escape for all of
our family. We are already looking forward to next year. Many thanks to you and

My partner and I, along with another couple, absolutely LOVED our stay at the
Besakih Resort. The property itself is great, and the location is fantastic. We
especially enjoyed the close proximity of the market, as well as our backyard
which produced an escape on the busy days of New Years Eve and New Years Day. We
would strongly recommend this property to all those thinking of visiting Byron
