A Private Estate Built For Love

Villa Botanica was founded in 2008, when Ralph and Janet Hogan moved their busy Sydney life to the idyllic shores of the Coral Sea. Ralph built Villa Botanica as a palace for his 'princess' Janet, influenced by their mutual love of Balinese style and architecture, no detail was left unconsidered and no expense was spared. Imported marble floors, hand-carved antique furniture, beautifully ornate teak and merbau wood detailing are just some of the features that make Villa a truly unique estate. 

This obsession with detail, luxury and experience is the foundation of all Villa Botanica Weddings. 

What Do We Do?

Villa Botanica is both a wedding venue and planning service. We are passionate about creating not only the best wedding experience in the Whitsundays, but Australia wide. Having planned hundreds of weddings, we have a wealth of knowledge and understanding about how to create an experience like no other.

We specialise in creating premium, tailored weddings of between 20 and 100 guests.

We don't offer cookie-cutter package weddings - no two weddings are the same, and our tailored approach begins from the moment a couple contacts us. We take the time to listen, before creating a tailored quote clearly show the inclusions and costs. 

I just want to say thank you to everyone at Villa Botanica for their amazing efforts, particularly the wonder woman herself Tania our wedding coordinator. I am normally a very anxious person but on the 17/11/17 I was so calm because everything was running like a well oiled machine. The venue was stunning, the staff were professional and helpful and the whole entire experience blew my mind. Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine such a perfect wedding; not only that so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to as well! Thank you again, we truly are indebted to you.
