The bedroom features Schumacher fabrics, brass Aerin Lauder wall fittings and a chair Collette bought in the South of France hand covered in velvet. The bathroom is real luxury featuring hand made vanities with Carrara marble tops, Perrin & Rowe tapware, a sizeable bathtub and shower, and heated floors. There is also a separate powder room. Australian photographers and artists who have an emotional connection to the water are featured throughout — such as Murray Hilton and John Witizg’s 1970s surf nostalgia. Both suites have a collection of botanical and coral sea life sourced from the French markets, as well as charts from Collette’s family’s sailing journeys across the Indian Ocean. The balcony offers customised cane furniture in a relaxed setting for two.
