//THE CALILE HOTEL, Brisbane
From US$149 per night
Great hotels have stories that go beyond providing a bed for the night – they offer moments of discovery, unexpected adventures, encounters to be savoured and retold.
A Day Begins
It’s the breeze from my balcony that puts tropical lanais in my dreams, but no hammock ever had this thread count.
Last night’s plan for a morning run has ebbed – the call of the pool is louder, more persuasive. Can I tell myself I did laps, if I pushed no harder than a glide and mostly gazed at the palms and sky? A platter of fruit poolside, and the day has begun with all the virtue it needs.
Time to Wander
There’s more to this place than the poolside vibe. My wandering takes in an amphitheatre, a grand room, cosy rooms for private dining and the library – a perfect place to linger, work or to just exhale. A place where stories can pause, or pivot.
I’m not moving in a hurry and the next decision is easy: fitness centre before day spa. First the burn, then the reward.
The Segue to SiestaHour, and Beyond
Where were we? My massage set me down on a cloud, which became a cabana with a poolside cocktail. Still a dream? Maybe. Nobody pinch me. I don’t want to wake from this. At least not until I've followed the breeze down the staircase to the boutiques that are waiting under the white-brick archways.
