Orso boasts an abundance of natural light through clear floor-to-ceiling glass expanses and can cater for functions of up to 250 guests. With an absolute waterfront, it has its own beach, jetty and deck, and a resident family of photogenic pelicans can be seen paddling outside at most times. In keeping with its origins as a boatshed, we love that guests can arrive by boat and tie up at Orso’s private jetty (so fun!) or for a more traditional arrival utilize ample car parking on either side of Spit Road.
