Byron BayAustralia

The perspicuously named Sun Ranch, in Byron Bay’s hinterland, is 55 acres of California meets Australia. 1970s meets today.

Retro furnishings seemingly taken from the Californian ranch homes of 1970s movie stars sit inside plush wood panelled rooms. There's record players, tiger-print wraparound sofas. And probably a martini making station, we bet.

There are also massages and yoga, kayaking and Zooz e-bikes. Oh, and horse riding. There's a pool overlooking the famed hinterland, and a restaurant boasting ridiculously succulent open-fire meals from famed chef, Pip Sumbak. Parts of the ranch are totally off-grid, but the whole ranch is pretty light on when it comes to eco footprint. This really is the best of both worlds.

From AU$1,700 for two nights
