      What an Incredible venue Sails on the Bay is! My husband Sam and I are couldn't be more happier choosing Sails on the Bay for both our Wedding Ceremony and Reception in early November this year. It was absolutely perfect, the staff and event manager at Sails were absolutely amazing. Beautiful food, wine and the magnificent views of the beach made it an such a stunning day that we will never forget. We wouldn't change a thing!!

      My husband and I grew up just near by the venue and when we walked into Sails we knew it was the right place for us. We loved the idea of a winter wedding and loved the idea of having a beach wedding in winter. Brooke, our event planner was fantastic, we knew we were in very good hands from the first meeting. Brooke was very helpful and took us through how things would work, step by step. We opted for a cocktail party wedding and the food was fantastic and there was plenty of it. We organised our own cake and here were no extra charges for cake cutting/serving which was refreshing. The price was so reasonable and there were no hidden costs to surprise us. We got to experience the beach and a beautiful sunset in winter whilst being cosy and warm in the luxury of the function spaces, one side looking to the water and the other looking out to thick green bamboo. It really was beautiful and everything went perfectly. All the staff that worked on the night of the wedding were so helpful and they had everything running very smoothly without a hitch. I would recommend Sails on the Bay to any couple as the venue offers something for everyone. Stand up, sit down, day, night, summer winter. It is the perfect place to celebrate.
