The Calile Hotel has ranked number 12 in The World’s 50 Best Hotels awards



The Calile Hotel has a stellar reputation for good reason – it's got a dynamite location, awe-inspiring amenities (yes, we're talking about that pool) and some of Brisbane's best restaurants rolled into one. The James Street hotel's world-class reputation has further been solidified with the announcement that it has been named number 12 in The World’s 50 Best Hotels awards. Read on for all of the details ...


Five-star accommodation destination The Calile Hotel has always been a winner in our books, but now it sits pretty amongst the ranks of other top-tier international hotels thanks to its placement of 12th in the inaugural The World’s 50 Best Hotels awards that were held in London’s The Guildhall on Tuesday September 19. If that’s not a big enough achievement, the Richards and Spence-designed hotel also earned the title of The Best Hotel in Oceania. The Calile Hotel co-owner Catherine Malouf attended the ceremony and feels humbled to represent the Australian hotel industry on the world stage. “There is no doubt The Calile Hotel has carved a name for itself and sparked a trend in ‘urban resorts’ with its bold architectural commitment, sustainable practises and by embracing its local and sub-tropic climate within an urban setting,” says Catherine. 

The World’s 50 Best Hotels list was created by The World’s 50 Best Hotels Academy, an influential group of 580 anonymous leaders in the hotel industry. Voting criteria was based on selecting seven best hotel experiences during the voting period. Voters were asked to consider every element of the hotel’s operation, from first contact point, to room comfort, quality of food and beverage, on-site facilities and the check-out experience.  

If you were looking for an excuse to lounge poolside at The Calile Hotel with a cocktail in hand (and zucchini chips from Hellenika in the other), consider this your sign. Otherwise, take a gander at the full list of  The World’s 50 Best Hotels here and start dreaming up your next international holiday.
