After months of hype and build-up, Brisbane’s newest address and urban resort The Calile Hotel has opened its doors to guests, part of the TFE Hotels Collection.
The 175-room property is overseen by Jeremy Nordkamp who was last month named the resort’s opening General Manager. Among the inventory are nine suites and two premier suites, all offering guests a balcony, motorised blackout blinds, flat-screen television and movie library.
The new property features a ground-floor Lobby Bar and flagship Greek restaurant, dubbed Hellenika, which occupies 600 square metres and opens onto an outdoor pool terrace where guests can dine al fresco in one of the poolside cabanas. Next door, the eclectic food and beverage precinct Ada Lane is now in full swing, boasting five new hole-in-the-wall restaurants and bars. A retail zone within the hotel is also home to numerous fashion labels and designer lifestyle outlets.
Event, function and corporate planners have access to a number of meeting and event spaces scaling up to a grand ballroom capable of catering to 500 people. In addition, the KAILO wellness centre and spa facility headed by Meaghan South, the face behind The Dome Retreat in Brisbane has opened with 10 treatment rooms focusing on skin health, medical aesthetics and beauty procedures.
TFE Hotels Chaiman Allan Vidor labelled The Calile Hotel the most highly anticipated hotel opening in Brisbane this year.
“It brings together all the best things that Brisbane has to offer – its subtropical climate, a relaxed yet sophisticated setting and an array of forward-thinking fashion boutiques and dining offerings including our new Lobby Bar, all set against the urban streetscape of James Street.”
