Highs & Lows

  • Location, location, location. Slap bang on Bondi beach.

  • Huge rooms, perfect if you are on Zooms all day and don’t want to feel like you’re cooped up, and even better to have friends over for a post work drink.

  • Design — art deco plush velvet meets light airy beach chic.

  • Morning sun on the generous balcony overlooking the beach.

  • No breakfast service, however you are spoilt with so much great food within striking distance.

  • Parking is organised with a local car park, but it is a tad on the spendy side.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Beachfront hotel

  • Vibe

    Beach hipster vibe, keen for a party and even keener to roll straight out of bed to the beach for a day of surf and sunbaking

  • Location

    Bondi Beach: front and center

  • Rooms

    12

  • Pre-Arrival Experience

    Seamless, the lobby is well placed between the bar and bottle-o. I was welcomed by the chirpy front desk staff who promptly provided me with a ravesis locals map and my room key

  • Future Forward

    No plastic heavy minis disposables in the bathroom and a mindful laundry service (since when did we need a fresh towel every day!)

  • Music

    Australian Electropop band Parcels had just dropped their new album, Day/Night — perfect beach side listening

  • Year Opened

    1989

  • Designed By

    Karina Hicks

  • Health & Wellness

    No in house spa/gym, but if you're a real gym bunny there are plenty of work out spaces along the beach, and the hotel is a mere stones throw from a 50m salt water pool. Plus in room massages can be organised via Blys service

  • Food

    Ravesis offers the Australian take on Mediterranean food. Think crispy falafels, lamb and hummus. Sit back and order an Aperol whilst looking overlooking the beach. Or kick it up a notch and sample the vast cocktail menu... I've heard it gets pretty loose on a friday

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    Many a Sydneysider have danced into the wee hours in the velvet clad discotheque, regular live music and rotating DJs, Ravesis is quite the locals haunt for a good time

  • Minibar & Retail

    Bottle shop selling local craft beers, pet nat and hotel merch (and I am a fan of a printed Tee)

  • Accessibility

    In house lift

  • Pet Friendly

    No

  • Children

    I thought this was a holiday...?

  • Price

    As expected for a hotel suite on Sydney’s most infamous beach
