Punctuated by 3 spaces:
• The Garden Arena Hall • The Garden Arena Bar • The Garden Arena Cascades Chapel
Our Garden Arena Venue is our largest wedding venue, set in a grand beautifully landscaped garden, ideal for those who are planning a big wedding.
Three distinct landmarks punctuate The Garden Arena. On the far end we have The Garden Arena Hall, then The Garden Arena Cascades Chapel cantilevering over a koi pond and lastly the outdoor Garden Arena Bar. All 3 spaces play together in seamless unison, allowing for a welcome drinks and canapés space, ceremony stage over the koi ponds and the wedding banquet hall.
Steel accented architecture, exudes a contemporary, fresh minimalist feel, in contrast to our other venues that enjoy a traditional thatch style. The highlight of this venue is however the lavishly styled gardens and cascading ponds. The informal gardens display a striking abundance of palms and lush tropical plants, contrasting the straight-line geometry of the contemporary buildings. Raised landscaped berms cause the space to be uniquely private. A series of dramatic pot cascades salute the arrival area where guests are welcomed.
A one-of-its-kind outdoor chapel, modern and minimalist in its expression, with straight accent lines and light grey stone tiles allows for a magnificent outdoor wedding ceremony space. Steady flowing water features animate the left and right of the stage, which seems to float above the water, while the green landscape frames all around. For the bridal party to access the stage, they walk over the bridge that crosses the water that surrounds the stage like a castle moat.
At the far end of the Garden Arena sits the covered bar and with plenty of rolling lawn in between, your wedding is given a blank canvas to host your special day – the sky is the limit. Bridal couples may choose to hold their wedding in the Arena Hall or under the open skies in a marquee or Bedouin tent. This space is highly versatile allowing for almost any storyline to play out.
With modern light grey colour palettes and a distinct contemporary edge, this sumptuous event space with sprawling lawns can host large weddings from 150 to 450 guests banquet style.
