Fodor's Expert Review Rae's on Wategos
Watego's Beach, 8 Marine Parade, Byron Bay, New South Wales, 2481, Australia
If a high-design boutique hotel is your cup of tea, you'd be hard-pressed to do better than this luxurious Mediterranean-style villa surrounded by a tropical garden. Each suite is individually decorated with an exotic collection of antiques, Indonesian art, Moroccan tables, and fine furnishings. The secluded rooms have gorgeous four-poster beds, tile floors, huge windows, in-room fireplaces, and private terraces; the service is top-notch, and the alfresco in-house restaurant, Rae's Fish Cafe ($$), is true to its name and serves fish and seafood dishes like Spanish-style seafood stew and wok-fried baby snapper. There's a minimum two-night stay on weekends.
