In Focus | The Calile Hotel

As far as urban resorts go - The Calile Hotel ticks ALL the boxes. Designed by local Brisbane architects Richards and Spence, the hotel takes inspiration from other ‘hot cities’, with a design which is very LA - think curved sculptural balconies, hallways featuring breeze blocks, open air nooks, palm trees, a pool and plush cabanas. Each room in the contemporary designed hotel draws on natural elements and celebrates Queensland’s environment. There’s beautiful marble surfaces in natural pinks, blues and greens meet timber panelling, as well as cork flooring and brass fixtures. Guests have access to a range of luxury amenities including Kailo Wellness Medispa, gym and fitness facilities, and a ground level retail precinct which includes Bassike, Dion Lee and Love Stories. An urban escape made to remember.
