Such a stunning venue. The coordinator, Kate, and her team just made everything so easy, effortless and stress free and really helped us put together our dream wedding.

The Calile ticked every box for us for our wedding reception, and having been to a number of weddings as guests, I don't know why you'd go anywhere else. The Terrace and Ballrooms looked amazing, the food and drink was fantastic, the service and staff were exceptional, and I could go on and on. The Calile's central location and onsite accommodation, not to mention its beautiful aesthetic and countless places to capture beautiful photos, are just some of the things to love about the venue. The wedding coordinator Kate Redgen is an absolute asset to the team, and it was a pleasure planning our wedding with her. We wish we could do it all again!

A really beautiful place to get married. We were married on the Terrance and it was really beautiful. It was great having the ceremony and reception in the same place and there are plenty of beautiful places to take photos in and around the hotel. The staff were amazing and very helpful. We had an amazing wedding here.

We wanted a small ceremony in a beautiful location and decided to go with the Elopement Package that The Calile offers. Staying in the Calile Suite was an absolute luxury and it made our wedding extremely special to us. The day went so smoothly and we felt absolutely no stress because everything was taken care of so well.

The venue was immaculate and gorgeous. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The transition between the ceremony and the reception was seamless. The timing and delivery of the meals was excellent. Everything looked perfect and went perfectly.
