Intro to Coogee Bay Hotel Sydney
Located just outside of Sydney, Coogee Bay Hotel is one of the region’s go-to locations for fine dining, relaxed drinks, and coastal views. This highly sought after destination hosts a range of events and is highly regarded for putting on high-end weddings that feel relaxed and effortless. This slice of beachside paradise is home to boutique accommodation and uninterrupted views out over the ocean. The soundtrack to your wedding day is the gentle crash of waves on the golden shores.
The Scene at Coogee Bay Hotel Sydney
From the moment you pull up to the Coogee Bay Hotel, you’re swept away by the ocean breeze and gorgeous views over the rolling waves. This waterfront wedding venue capitalises on its exceptional location with floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious balcony overlooking the beach and beyond.
Featuring two indoor reception spaces and an extensive balcony area that overlooks the beach, Coogee Bay Hotel is perfect for couples seeking a relaxed and intimate experience. Choose from either space, or combine the two so that your guests feel free to flow organically from room to room to the balcony.
What’s especially exciting about Coogee Bay Hotel is the onsite accommodation. A popular 4-star boutique hotel, you and your wedding party can stay on location the evening before your wedding. Cut out travel time and risk of car disasters by waking up with your ceremony location just floors below your feet. The hotel offers two distinct design styles that will appeal to every couple. The newly renovated Coogee Bay rooms feel playful and exciting, and the Boutique rooms indulge in opulence. The Sunrise Suite is a luxurious space bathed in natural light, making it ideal for the bridal party to get hair and makeup done.
The other bonus of getting married at a hotel is that you and your guests can celebrate well into the wee hours with a comfortable bed awaiting you. Your guests can book a beautifully appointed room for the wedding evening, and you and your partner can celebrate your wedding night in a luxury suite with ocean views.
Fine dining at Coogee Bay Hotel is a given, and you have a choice of delicious premium canapes, banquet feasts, and mouthwatering desserts. Dishes take inspiration from modern Australian and international cuisine, culminating in fresh, innovative menus that satisfy every guest and dietary need. Beverage packages reflect crowd favourites with an extensive beer and wine list.
Coogee Bay Hotel Sydney Wedding Ceremonies
Ceremonies at Coogee Bay Hotel maximise those ocean views. Your wedding ceremony will take place on the private tropical terrace, the golden sand and crashing waves your backdrop. Perfect for up to 50 guests (25 seated, 25 standing), the terrace is surrounded by towering palm trees that evoke a sense of tropical romance, inviting you and your nearest and dearest to indulge in a relaxed vibe. Choose from a ceremonial plinth or arch as the head of your aisle, a white carpet to add a touch of glamour, and sparkling wine served to guests before or after you’ve said, “I do”.
After you’ve shared the kiss that seals the deal, your guests will be invited to head into the reception area or enjoy post-ceremony drinks or canapes on the balcony. You and your bridal party can head down to the beach to capture the best beachside snaps.
Coogee Bay Hotel Sydney Wedding Receptions
Receptions at Coogee Bay Hotel are a relaxed yet elegant affair. There are two indoor reception spaces to choose from: the Seaview or Seabreeze Room. The Seaview Room is the larger of the two spaces, though it can be sectioned into smaller areas depending on the size of your guest list or the way you’d like to arrange the space. It features elegant French windows that open out onto the sea-facing balcony, a neutral patterned carpet, and light coastal aesthetics.
The smaller space is the Seabreeze Room, ideal for more intimate wedding affairs. Use this space exclusively for your reception, or take advantage of it as a breakout space for young kids or guests who need a quick breather coming off the dancefloor in the Seaview Room.
Coogee Bay Hotel offers personalisation options like chair covers, table centrepieces, printed menus, a dancefloor, projector and screen, and a custom lounge cluster for guests to chill out.

We had our reception here and it was truly outstanding. Sara, our wedding planner and her entire team (special mention to George and Tara) provided us with incredible service on the night leaving all of our guests praising the venue and staff. Sara planned our wedding exactly how we wanted to be and the room was absolutely stunning. Food was 10/10 as was the view of the beach!!
The rooms are beautiful and spacious. I loved the modern décor. Perfect location across from the beach, great spot for delicious food and drinks and free parking for my car! Will definitely stay again.
I can’t thank the team at the Coogee Bay Boutique Hotel enough for the warm welcome back! My husband and I celebrated our wedding at the CBH in 2002 and stayed at the Boutique Hotel. We returned for a special anniversary treat and had the most amazing stay in the newly refreshed rooms. As lovely and comfortable and clean as the room was (and it was!) we cannot rave enough about the staff. We were welcomed so warmly and every encounter we had - from reception staff to room service, from housekeeping to the delightful breakfast crew at the CBH - was genuinely delightful. The team even arranged a lovely bottle of bubbles to mark the anniversary which was so generous and very much appreciated. Our family still raves about the staff at the CBH function centre and hotels from our wedding almost 20 years ago. It is so wonderful to see that customer service remains the primary focus of your team.
