Right on Australia's most famous golden sands, this boutique property offers modern minimalist rooms with white marble bathrooms -- all very chic, with African tribal wall hangings. Standard doubles are spacious; there's also a one-bedroom suite and a split-level one-bedroom option with the bedroom upstairs. Room nos. 5 and 6 and the split-level suite have the best views of the ocean. All rooms have Juliet balconies, and the split-level suite has its own terrace. If you're a light sleeper, request a room on the top floor, because the popular Ravesi's Restaurant can be noisy on busy nights. An attractive glass-sided ground-floor bar is the "in" place on the Bondi scene, with lounge, house, and "chill" music every evening. The bar is a great place to watch the outside street scene.
