Hidden Gem - Why Talinga Retreat makes a brilliant Gold Coast Function Venue

Hidden Gem – Why Talinga Retreat makes a brilliant Gold Coast Function Venue

I promise you’ll be impressed! Talinga Retreat oozes relaxation and versatility. Not only is the Island a fabulous location to host a private celebration, but also a unique space that can accommodate corporate events such as product launches, team building exercises, conferences, meetings and staff Christmas parties. This Gold Coast Function Venue is especially a massive hit for international guests – did I already mention private Island!!!

Our fabulous Gold Coast Function Venue comes with a lot of benefits. Offering features that set it apart from your typical function venues and more often than not, proving to be more economical for those planning a unique event on a strict budget.

This week we share with you why you should consider our piece of paradise as a venue for your next event.


Family Fun Day Event


Atmosphere & Styling

One of the best things about hosting an event on an Island is the ready-made atmosphere and styling. Nothing screams ‘cool vibes’ more than a tropical function venue. We can also theme the interior to whatever takes your fancy. For the savvy employer/ee, you have the option to get creative and style the room yourself or perhaps just add a few key pieces for branding purposes. If your time-poor, not to worry, leave it to our Event Planner!



Music & Audio Visual

One thing all good function venues have is music. Whether you’re looking to plug in an iPod, get in a DJ/band or even hire a massive stage, we can help you with all your music and entertainment needs. We have a microphone on hand for guest speakers and if you’re keen to showcase a company DVD for example, screens and other AV equipment are available.

Bar Service

We have an option to suit all preferences because let’s face it – whether alcoholic or not, drinks are an important part of any event. We have two beverage packages to select from depending on your budget; standard or deluxe. You can also arrange a ‘Bar Tab’ and choose to either limit the beverage options or go all out with an Open Bar. Best of all – if the package or bar tab is over, it’s easy for the party guests to kick on – just not from your budget!



Another very important aspect of any function is food. We have a large variety of options that will ensure the event host can relax knowing their guests will be well fed. From delicious canapés, to a fine dining plated meal or a buffet style service, there is something to suit everyone. With our Bare Venue Hire option you can even source your own catering company! Just recently we had a company fly in 14 of their own chefs from India!


Let The Party Continue!

The networking event, staff Christmas party or even the product launch you have planned may end at 8pm (or earlier depending on what your event is), but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to end your day/night. You will continue to mingle on the boat journey to the main land and once you have disembarked you can head to one of the many local venues. Alternatively, you can opt to extend your time on the Island to make the most of the magical destination and allow for valuable opportunities for networking or having fun with your colleagues or guests to continue.


So, if you’re looking for a Gold Coast Function Venue that is unique, with a ready-made atmosphere, easy entertainment, delicious food and great service, then contact us today for a tailored made package!
