RAW LUXE: Byron Bay Hotels Part Two, The Bower

The Bower Byron Bay redefines the concept of an Aussie motel by pushing no-frills into sleek sophistication. Fourteen ground-level suites stretch along the property, in addition to a cottage, house and barn. When the four owners gutted and restored the old motel on the site, they drew inspiration from the architecture of New York. Taliah Lowry, who handled the concept and design, spent much of her childhood in the states and was drawn to the look and feel of the Big Apple’s Bowery neighbourhood.
