The mansion that fake tan built! Bondi Sands founder splashes out $8million to live next door to Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky in Byron Bay – after tanning brand’s massive payday

Bondi Sands owner Shaun Wilson has spent $8 million to live next door to Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky.

The businessman, who co-founded the fake tan brand with Blair James, has put some of his lavish earnings into purchasing a sprawling mansion in Byron Bay.

Shaun and his fiancée Tess Shanahan have bought a six-bedroom house in what is being dubbed Byron Bay’s ‘Golden Grid’, according to real estate.com.

Shaun’s new luxury property, which he bought for $8.26 million, sits on an elevated 1,010 sqm block and features a modern exterior with a columned veranda.

Shaun – the son of AFL star Garry Wilson – has now taken over the property in the A-list hotspot months after the proposal and his huge Bondi Sands payday.

Last year, Shaun and his business partner Blair sold their Bondi Sands brand to Japanese skincare giant Kao Corporation in a huge partnership deal.

They made a small fortune from their globally popular self-tanning brand in the $450 million deal, more than a decade after the company’s initial launch in 2012.

At the time, Shaun said the huge partnership deal with Kao would be transformative for the brand, which is already sold in 32 countries.

“We have only just scratched the surface in terms of our growth opportunities and myself and the leadership team, we are fully committed to that, and it is exciting to be working with Kao,” he told The Australian Financial Review.

“America is a major focus for the company, we just started with Walmart so that’s 4,000 doors next month. We also have strong distribution with Ulta, Walgreens, CVS and Target, and we are leaders on Amazon.

“We want to be a leader in the global skincare protection industry […] We have the fastest growing SPF business in Australia and the UK.”
