It may sound like a wedding cliché but at this magical venue dreams really do come true. Its amazing architecture, gardens and dedication to service provide the perfect setting for a day that truly is a once in a lifetime event.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise that when couples are looking to exchange vows in the stunning Whitsundays, the romantic venue of choice is most often Villa Botanica, widely considered one of the most intimate and picturesque venues Down Under. It is just eight minutes from Airlie Beach, a thirty-minute minute drive from Whitsunday Coast airport and twenty minutes from Shute Harbour.
The location and architecture speak for themselves
Villa Botanica’s lush 5 acre setting offers the best of both nature and architecture. The aquamarine waters of the magnificent Coral Sea are contrasted against the rim of mainland mountains surrounding Pioneer Bay, creating the picture-perfect ambience which sets Villa Botanica apart from other Australian wedding venues as THE idyllic location.
With fourteen stand-out photographic locations that boast striking architecture and beautiful gardens, even the more demanding couples will be spoilt for choice as far as photo-opportunities go. The interior décor that is inspired by Balinese and Indian architecture offers the right mix of aesthetics, comfort and intimacy. The veranda is tiled with pebbles and the outdoor bathroom under the twinkling stars makes you feel like you’re in the lap of nature and the antique-styled columns exude an old-world charm.
Wedding ceremony, reception and bridal villa
Villa Botanica ‘triples’ as a venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions, as well as a bridal villa for the night and day of the wedding. Couples feel like they are in their own private paradise, albeit with all modern day conveniences like Wi-Fi, LCD TV, fully-equipped kitchen, air-conditioning, ironing/drying facilities, among and more.
