Il Delfino is a seaside inn located in the small coastal holiday town of Yamba, NSW.
Built in 1948, Il Delfino has been restored and re-imagined, inspired by the ramshackle guesthouses of the Mediterranean and its existing mid-century design.
Il Delfino still stands, the last of many from that era found along the Australian coast. Here, it nestles into the rocks above the ocean, overlooking the big blue and the guardians of the sea, the dolphins – our namesake, Il Delfino.
Each suite has been designed and inspired by its original layout and characteristics. Where possible, it has been restored original fixtures and design elements to maintain its original rustic charm. The goal has been to keep the nostalgic feeling of
childhood memories and summer holidays alive – something that can only come with history and time.
An original through and through, the imperfections are her
crowning glory, and what makes Il Delfino truly special.
Il Delfino is a two-story residence with a separate bungalow. It is home to five unique suites, a communal Lido sundeck, nearby beach access, private decks, all with views of the sea, an outdoor shower, and a shared laundry. The Lido ocean terrace is open for all guests to enjoy during daylight hours.
