The Best Destination Wedding Location
Finding the best place for your wedding party is all about Location, Location, Location! AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI, and its new luxurious collection of destination wedding venues with Indian Ocean views offer just that.
Now that the proposal, ring selfies, well-wishes and champagne toasts are out of the way, my groom and I are wondering - where are we actually going to tie the knot! The question of where and when a wedding will take place from friends and family is inevitable and could be quite stressful for any couple. Having a Destination wedding in Bali is always a good option. Getting away from the life in the city and heading to paradise to say ‘I do.’
If like us you are planning to tie the knot in Bali and you’re feeling completely lost and need help deciding on the perfect site in Bali to say your “I dos,” relax and take a deep breath, we’ve got you covered.
We visited the AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI, and took a look at its luxurious collections of Chapel, Villas, Bar, Pier and Beach that is perfect to say our ‘I dos.’
Our first stop at the AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI hunt was the Tresna Wedding Chapel. For a contemporary twist on a traditional chapel wedding, the Tresna Wedding Chapel is just perfect. AYANA resort’s new Tresna Wedding Chapel has a magnificent ocean background view with comfortable surroundings in a fully air-conditioned chapel. The chapel itself can accommodate up to 70 guests. The original Tresna Chapel built in 2003 has a good history of creating happy moments. However, this new Tresna Chapel is a more modern version of the previous Chapel, with enhanced views and additional perquisites which include a sparkling glass aisle, lower arched windows gazing upon the floating water that surrounds the chapel and out across to the Indian Ocean.
Beneath the Chapel is a function space with a private manicured lawn that is an ideal setting for post-wedding cocktails with a view, and it discreetly accommodates 110-guest. Another location that would be perfect for our wedding ceremony is the Wedding Deck at AYANA Villa which complements the resort’s iconic SKY. Spanning above the Indian Ocean from the garden of the resort’s opulent 3-bedroom pool villa, we can enjoy complete privacy with a 180-degree ocean view for up to 200 guests in a splendid sit-down dinner or up-to 500 standing guests. This site is perfect if you are planning on having a big wedding party/celebration.
An additional benefit of choosing the Villa is that we can make use of our very own private dining room. This room can seat up to 40 guests, and the view of Jimbaran’s shoreline is endless. The villa’s private garden is complete with swimming pool and Jacuzzi and it is gorgeous for intimate ceremonies and VIP receptions.
The iconic Rock Bar, BALI is also available for gatherings of up to 50 guests, perfect for a more contemporary and intimate wedding, new couples like us or those renewing their wedding vow. The bar is only a few meters from Jimbaran’s enchanting sapphire waters. Its unparalleled setting, versatile catering menu, and live music make this venue truly one-in-a-million.
We also visited the resort’s private Pier. This is an incredibly romantic destination, and it is now available for Weddings on the Pier. The seemingly endless aisle that floats above the Indian Ocean is undoubtedly one of the island’s most unique wedding venues. This unrivalled destination can accommodate 30 to 60 guests, and with natural ocean waves to create a flawless setting, the Pier is a spectacular 360-degree setting.
Last stop on our search was AYANA’s white sand Kubu Beach. Famed as one of the island’s hidden gems, it is pictureperfect for couples to begin their new lives together with sand between their toes. Having a Kubu Beach Wedding, you will be blessed by the gentle sea breeze and the sounds of the Indian Ocean. The on-the-sand experience is perfect for a private getaway wedding of up to 50 guests. On the plus side, we do not need to worry about how our guest will be transported to Kubu beach as the resort offers a new cliff-side inclinator that takes just 35 seconds from the cliff-top to the sandy shore which makes transporting guests easily and stress-free.
Finally, we are not worried about what food will be served to our guests or the quality because we found that The Resort’s Catering Department is fully committed to bringing world’s best service by a team of professional chefs from across the globe. The food showcased includes an outstanding variety of universal cuisine including Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese and India, just to name a few and AYANA offers a distinctive menu of fine wines, Champagne, spirits, and of course, signature island cocktails, everything we need.
All of the five different venues we explored at AYANA are equally worthy as a tropical destination wedding location for a memorable wedding experience. With such a variety, it is safe to say that we are rest assured that the team at AYANA will make our wedding day a success with the stunning venue, world-class catering, and services that will ensure that every detail is met in style and to our taste.
