It's an exciting time for Bannisters By the Sea with their recently completed stunning interior makeover by iconic fashion designer Collette Dinnigan, and the announcement of a new hotel opening December 1.
Collette's inspiration was to capture the seaside coastal elegance of the suites in a comfortable environment while retaining a feminine aesthetic, completely renovating and reimagining penthouse suites 29 and 30.
The suites feature uninterrupted ocean views, comfortable linen sofas, handpainted cushions by textile designers such as Kathryn Ireland, Penny Morrison and Carolina Irving, wool rugs and gas fireplaces. The bedrooms feature Shumacher fabrics, brass Aerin Lauder wall fittings (in Suite 29) while the bathrooms boast handmade vanities with Carrara marble tops and Perrin & Rowe tapware.
The first one hundred guests will also receive a limited edition Collette Dinnigan candle made in France. The makeover renders Bannisters an even more chic accommodation option for couples seeking a romantic getaway in New South Wales.

The new Bannisters hotel – Bannisters Pavilion – promises to be a boutique experience with 33 stylish guest rooms and two luxurious penthouse suites. Set back from Mitchell Parade and Beach Road, the hotel is steps away from Mollymook Beach, famous for its surf breaks and unspoilt coastline.
The Bannisters Pavilion's main feature will be its expansive rooftop where couples can enjoy sun beds, umbrellas, private lounge spaces, a bar-and-grill and even a suspended pool.
Bannisters Pavilion is a collaboration between owner Peter Cosgrove, architect Tony Freeman (Molnar Freeman), interior designers Mia Ward (Wiwa Design), Romy Alwill (Alwill Interiors) and landscape designer William Dangar.
Guest rooms start from AUD 255 and Penthouses AUD 398. Below are artist's renders of the new hotel.
