Just minutes from Mandalay Bay and the south end of The Strip is a little tropical getaway and golf course called Bali Hai. Cili, a restaurant inside the club house there, offers full-service wedding services, coordination and catering, hosting 60+ weddings a year. (Cili, pronounced see-lee, is Balinese for prosperity and good health)

The theme and palette could be described as South Seas natural. Warm tones of red, orange and greens combine with organic stones and wood and touches of Polynesian statues and accessories. The golf course is captivatingly beautiful and creates an airy, lush feel when viewed from the patios and restaurant.

A variety of venues are available for ceremonies or receptions, and it is possible to just host a reception. Ceremonies must be booked alongside a reception. Separate indoor and outdoor spaces for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception are available.

Patio: This patio overlooking the stunning 16th hole surrounded by palms and water features will host up to 30 guests. An attached, intimate private dining room for the reception is available for these smaller weddings.

Cili Garden Lawn: The Cili Patio Lawn features a tropical backdrop of the Bali Hai water features, lush grass and palm trees, with space for up to 80 guests.

Cili Restaurant: The ceremony is held on the larger, fully enclosed patio attached to Cili, overlooking the picturesque golf course. Post-ceremony, guests move through the doors into the circular restaurant with in impressive vaulted tray ceiling for the private reception. Hosts larger weddings of up to 250 guests.

Factor In

  • The incredible location is well-positioned to the accommodation and convenience of The Strip, but without the stress and high prices
  • All-inclusive onsite service reduces any worrying about the details
  • A sparkler exit is possible, but due to the proximity to the airport, fireworks or lanterns are not
  • Despite the proximity to the airport, I did not find the noise from airplanes noticeable. They were beautiful though!
