Tanjung Sari, Bali is a very old resort
Raes On Wategos is where the celebrities stay in Byron.
I have been looking at taking a beach holiday (it's winter here) and have realised how fussy I have become when it comes to the interior decor of hotels and resorts.
Now I am not necessarily into 5-6 star all the way, but I am totally over those glitzy 5 star hotels that all look the same, no matter where in the world you are. It's actually really hard to find something stylish that offers more of a cultural experience. There are some exceptions:
Tanjung Sari in Bali, Malolo Island in Fiji (haven't been there as yet) and Raes on Wategos on the beach at Byron Bay.
Malolo was done by Gold Coast designer, Vanessa Wood.
Does anyone know of any others.... preferably where you can take kids. I should have mentioned that.
