“I wanted to take the time now that we are well and truly a month on from the conference (where has time gone?!) to thank you both so much for such a memorable experience at Caves. Everything from the lead up planning, to the accommodation, food and venue space was exceptional. The whole team raved about how fantastic and helpful your staff were, and I agree! Thank you both for being so amazing to work with, and hopefully again in the future when we have our next big event!!” Redbull Marketing Team, 2021
“Working with Cara and the team from Caves Coastal is and has been a pleasure. Nothing is left to chance and no request is too hard. From accommodation for our delegates, to training rooms and then celebration dinners, every detail was exactly as we wanted, so much so that we are in preparation for another Leadership event at the venue again soon. Besides the venue itself, you cannot fault the location, giving it that all round resort/seaside escape feel with top notch facilities thrown in. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue for any type of event.” Juice PLUS+ Australia & NZ, 2021
