Styled in an eclectic combination of opulent fixtures and furnishings that include hand painted tiles, Italian marble and internationally sourced antiques, each of the suites have their own unique Bohemian style character which have been tied together with the work of iconic Australian artist David Bromley who resided in Byron for many years.
