The Bonobo by Raes
Byron Bay NSW
The Project

In the heart of Australia’s favourite beachside town, we’re creating a new kind of place. An unforgettable destination. A curated sensory experience of everything we love most about Byron Bay. A luxury hybrid of Hotel·Apartments, refined hospitality, boutique retail and wellness where every detail is crafted, every aspect considered, and every moment taken care of.

The Bonobo by Raes is a visionary collaboration between Podia, luxury hospitality group Raes and the architects of Brisbane’s The Calile Hotel, Richards & Spence.
Imaginative architecture, a bespoke hotel experience and vibrant retail and F&B offerings have been assembled to create a sense of place that is special. Forged from clay and brick, anchored by a richly landscaped central courtyard, and crowned by a luxurious rooftop pool, the low rise building seamlessly weaves its modernist lines into the fabric of Byron Bay.

At ground level, a stylish cluster of dining, retail and wellness venues offers a uniquely Byron aesthetic within the town’s cool new Jonson Street precinct. Somewhere for everyone to enjoy.

Above, a collection of 41 unique and very private 2, 3 and 4 bedroom Hotel·Apartments provide valuable, much-needed quality accommodation in the vibrant centre of Byron Bay.

Naturally beautiful Hotel·Apartments in a naturally beautiful place. A rare opportunity in Australia’s most famous coastal town.
