It starts of course with Byron Bay's natural beauty - its iconic beaches and clear turquoise ocean waters, its lush green hinterland dotted throughout with quaint eclectic villages, its fresh local produce from the land and sea, the symphony of tastes from eateries of all kinds, boutique shopping, walking, surfing, swimming, cycling, unforgettable sunrises and pastel sunsets at the end of a sun-soaked day and its relaxed, laid-back coastal vibe.  It's doing lots. Doing nothing. 

And The Bower? Well we're the jewel in the Byron Beach Abodes coastal holiday property portfolio providing a unique, luxury accommodation experience that reflects the eclectic spirit and beauty of Byron.  And then there's Bower Life and that's what we want this blog to be. It will be about the things we love most and guessing you do too. It will be about design, interior styling, travel inspiration and destinations, fashion, food, wellbeing, brands we love, people who inspire us, and of course everything Byron Bay - what to do, where to eat, who to see, where to go, where to shop.

We've heard loud and clear from you how much you love our accommodation - Bower Barn, Bower House, Bower Cottage and Bower Suites -  and our bespoke, sophisticated, understated style.  You've noted our passion for combining hand-selected vintage pieces with modern classic contemporary furniture, preserving beautiful original features and teaming them with handcrafted artisan rugs and wall hangings from across the globe, a soft, muted colour palette, aged natural timbers, the patina of hand spun brass tapware, metres of squishy linen furnishings, beautiful craftsman-made mirrors, lots and lots of greenery and an unexpected twist here and there.  And we know how much you appreciate our personalised service and our passionate and committed Bower staff, who want to ensure that every stay is the stuff of unforgettable memories. 

But there's so much more.  It's our passion for the environment and preserving it, about ethical trade and providing opportunity, about gratitude and kindness, entrepreneurship and bold new adventures, its about wellbeing and giving back and about being inspired and providing inspiration.  It's The Bower Life and we hope you subscribe to it so you can get to know us better and we can get to know you.

We'll give you all the latest news and updates about The Bower and Byron Bay to make sure your holiday is not just torn out of the tourist handbook. It's bespoke just like The Bower Life. 

For now, we're thrilled to tell you that our stunning, round, 5 Star resort pool is days away from being finished and will provide a whole new level of indulgence for Bower guests, embedded as it is in a lush oasis of towering palm trees with separate areas furnished with ever-so comfy, luxe daybeds to layback and soak up the Byron sunshine.  Then come sundown, soft uplighting under the palms will set the scene for a long night swim, a cocktail, and maybe a platter of Byron's tastiest morsels you've prepared yourself or ordered in from our services menu.  

That's The Bower Life for you!
