JustÂ minutes from Mandalay Bay and the south end of The Strip is a little tropical getaway and golf course called Bali Hai.Â 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 ofÂ Polynesian statues and accessories. The golf course is captivatingly beautiful and creates an airy, lushÂ 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.

- The incredible location isÂ well-positioned to the accommodation and convenienceÂ of The Strip, but without the stress and high prices
- All-inclusive onsiteÂ service reducesÂ anyÂ 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 theÂ noise from airplanes noticeable. They were beautiful though!
