Raes on Wategos
Set in a perfectly quiet pocket of the Bay, Raes on Wategos is a Byron institution – and after a recent refurbishment, it is dreamier than ever. The most private of all the local hotels, Raes is rightly so a favourite with local and international celebrities alike. The Spanish Mission-inspired complex features one villa, two penthouses and four suites, meaning it’s quite the low-key affair. The service is personalised and discreet, and it won’t be long before the staff know your name, your coffee order and, by the evening, your favourite cocktail. Its award-winning restaurant overlooks Wategos Beach and is all about contemporary Australian with a Mediterranean influence, showcasing local and seasonal produce.
