The perfect place to get married!!! We were looking for a very private wedding, just the two of us, and after contacting the hotel, they helped arrange everything. They arranged a celebrant (Vivian) to fly in to perform the ceremony, and with the help of Nicole, Heather and David all our wedding needs were taken care of. David and Heather were our witnesses, and David (Resort Photographer) took some amazing pictures... the day ended with a very romantic 7 course dinner on the beach, served to perfection by Claudio - Steve and Alice
