Raes On Wategos
Nestled into the landscape and history of Wategos in Byron Bay, Raes is the ultimate luxury boutique retreat. With 2 penthouses and 5 suites, you are steps away from the beach and two minutes down the road from the heart of Byron. Originally built in the 1960s with bricks laid by the Wategos family themselves, this unique home was built for Byron Bay local, Ruth Harris in her Mediterranean Gothic style.
Recently Raes underwent an interior refresh by acclaimed interior designer Tasmin Johnson who transformed the interiors, making it more appropriate for its stellar beachside location while also adding in design elements to make it suitable while travelling.
If you want to know what it feels like to be staying at one of the best locations in Byron Bay, Francesca the General Manager of Raes said that "essentially, a weekend at Raes feels like you are staying at your very stylish friend's beach house. With all the luxurious appointments you would expect at any hotel, alongside all of the comfort elements you would expect at home. It is Australian luxe beachside chic at it’s best."
If that isn't enough, the opening of their brand new Cellar Bar now offers a more involved dining experience. So whether you are dining in the restaurant or poolside, having relaxed bites in the cellar or enjoying the comfort of in-room dining, Raes on Wategoes truly makes it hard to leave when its time to check out.
