Rae’s on Wategos
At the foot of the Australian mainland’s most easterly point, overlooking one of the world’s most coveted beaches and perched on a grassy knoll just a rolling wave from Wategos Beach, rests Rae’s on Wategos.
Evoking a 70’s beach club vibe, Rae’s is an iconic seafront boutique hotel full of exotic charm. Regarded as the epitome of bohemian sophistication, “Rae’s offers couples seclusion and exclusivity, a destination to relax and indulge,” says Hotel and Spa Manager Marionne De Candia. “The beauty here is unparalleled.” Rae’s is an elegant but understated barefoot playground for free spirits who crave a little extra luxury but also possess a searching sense of serenity and seclusion. “You feel as if you’re part of the family here, part of the beautiful memory of the place. That’s what makes Rae’s on Wategos a one-of-a-kind.”
Blessed with extraordinary surroundings, it is not only the location that is responsible for the boutique hotel’s worldwide acclaim. Behind the whitewashed walls, the Moroccan-inspired Mediterranean villa has just seven suites and penthouses, each with its own signature style and all of them private, plush and adorned with unique interior artworks by resident artist, David Bromley. It is also the exotic décor, Moroccan inspired details and climbing bougainvillea that creates a romantic and elegant wedding space full of unique charm. The laidback al fresco dining terrace and beachfront bar, offers a stylish mix of dining; the ideal location to host a unique and unforgettable event as it blends with the natural relaxing surrounds of Wategos Beach.
Ideal for an intimate wedding, we offer the choice of a formal sit down affair or a cocktail style event. The Restaurant at Rae’s seats up to 50 guests, and is ideal for a cocktail style event for up to 70 guests. The option to accommodate up to 100 guests maximum with use of a dressed marquee on site is also available.
Rae’s is a positively dreamy wedding destination for those who are drawn to the serene coastal charm of life in Byron Bay. Hire the entire hotel for complete exclusivity and spend your post wedding days reveling in morning swims, pink sunrises and lounging on the sun-drenched balconies of the Mirabella Penthouse.
