BYRON BAY’S NEWEST BOUTIQUE HOTEL, THE BOWER
Over the past year the motel has been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel, taking its inspiration from the style of New York’s Bowery district. Accommodation are varied, with 14 suites, a barn, a cottage and a family house. Both the cottage and family house are suitable for larger groups, while maintaining their privacy from the rest of the property. The Bower Barn is ideal for an intimate couple stay, with its centrepiece being the bathroom and its full glass ceiling.
Although The Bower take its cues from New York, that typical ‘Byron’ feeling hasn’t been lost. Minimalist interiors incorporate a mix of white washed walls, offset by wood, brass metals and original artworks. Light-filled rooms are spacious, and open out onto gardens landscaped with flora typical of the region. The beach is a short walk away, as are some of the best coffee shops in Byron.
