Situated on Cabarita Beach, on the NSW far north coast, Halcyon House was recently named one of Australia’s leading hotels - the only Australian hotel to make Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List for 2019.
In the statement, general manager Mauro De Riso writes: ‘Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, Halcyon House, Paper Daisy and Halcyon Spa will close temporarily from 24th March, 2020 until further notice.
‘Closing the Hotel was not a decision we made lightly, however given the current operational restrictions impacting our service, we believe it is the right and only thing to do for the health and safety of our guests staff and wider community.
‘We will be back in touch when we (all) get through this, and get through it we will!
‘As a small Australian business, your support at that time will be so very appreciated.’
The move follows celebrity chef Matt Moran’s decision to close all nine of his restaurants due to the coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
