The Calile Hotel on Brisbane’s trendy James Street is a five-star departure from other luxury city hotels. Developers Michael and Cal Malouf have created an urban resort that is entirely centred on the customers’ experience, creating spaces and experiences that surprise and delight.
Attention to detail even applies to the seven private Cabanas that line the magnificent pool deck. Each Cabana is equipped for comfort with private power; a USB point for phone charging; a ceiling fan; and an overhead Bromic heater, which the guest can control from within the cabana.
Hotel GM Jeremy Nordkamp explains the rationale: “As Queenslanders we, perhaps, kid ourselves that we get three months of cold weather in the year. And because we attract a lot of Queenslanders to our hotel, it was important for us to provide top quality heating.”
Bromic heating fits the bill architecturally, as it installs neatly in the compact cabana, leaving room for the ceiling fan and lighting. “They’re quite compact, but they’re beautiful and turning the heating to a modest medium setting will warm one of those cabanas quite easily,” Jeremy added.
Furthermore, Bromic heaters are also in the outdoor pre-function spaces which overlook the pool area, where durability and effectiveness were also major considerations.
“Obviously the heating is right by the pool, which is a saltwater chlorinated system,” Jeremy noted. “We keep them clean, but the equipment has to pass the test of time in that environment. We know the Bromic heating will be unbothered by the moisture or salt content in the air.
“The hotel design celebrates what Brisbane and Queensland is all about,” Jeremy observed. “So you’ll notice we encourage everyone to be outdoors.” Meanwhile, the Bromic heating doubtlessly plays a pivotal role in keeping them there.
