The Mysa Motel has opened its doors as the Gold Coast’s first sustainable, boutique luxury motel.
Located in Palm Beach, the old Palm Trees Motel has been artfully refurbished by husband and wife duo Eliza and Jason Raine into a sustainable, seven-room oasis with serious aesthetic appeal, passive design, and self-service check-in.
Whilst maintaining a quintessential motel vibe, the renovation features retro design cues such as breeze blocks, neon, and fibreglass sun-lounger chairs. “It’s been two years since we bought the old Palm Trees Motel and we’ve worked tirelessly to create a space that not only encapsulates a modern twist on retro Gold Coast; but one that incorporates a local flavour and supports local businesses,” Jason Raine said.
The motel’s light-filled rooms are decked with vintage images of Gold Coast attractions and destinations, shot by Internationally acclaimed and locally based photographer, Trent Mitchell.
“Where possible, we found vintage design pieces like the breeze blocks, glass mosaic for the bathrooms, and pool lounge recliners from local building sites and had them restored. Upcycling really was at the fore of what we wanted to do here at Mysa, and how we wanted to reinvent an icon with as minimal impact as possible,” Jason explained.
One of the motel’s most exceptional features is its kidney-shaped magnesium mineral pool which is a nod to blending vintage design with modern wellbeing. Which I’m sure feels amazing to swim in, and has countless benefits for your skin, hair and sleep. Wellbeing and regeneration in all elements of the revamp has been the motto.
Complementing its recycled materials, Mysa Motel relies on rainwater tanks for toilets and gardens and solar panels for energy, and all rooms offer filtered water so guests can fill reusable water bottles. This is all in accordance with Eliza and Jason’s goal to keep the property as environmentally impact-free where possible.
A short stroll from the world-famous Gold Coast beaches, plus popular dining and nightlife offerings, Mysa Motel balances a relaxed coastal spirit with a dynamic urban-fringe attitude in kinship with the Mysa philosophy.
