Facilities - Honeymoons

Among all our hotels and resorts, the Bluebay Beach Resort is the most popular wedding venue. Every year an average of 30 weddings take place here. But the Beyt al Chai hotel has the advantage of being close to most religious houses of worship in the island and often hosts rweddings, particularly the religious kind.

As a rule, all our weddings preparations take into account the need to relieve the couple off the stress that comes with a wedding by ensuring the process is efficient and hassle-free - yet as spectacular, fun and exotic as only a wedding on an idyllic African island can be. Ever seen a wedding with a full Maasai warriors' guard-of-honour for the couple?

The Civil wedding ceremonies are conducted on a spot of the couple's choice within our gardens or on the beach - or even on a wooden deck overlooking the Ocean. For religious Ceremonies, adequate notice will have us arrange for an Anglican Minister to be at hand to preside over the wedding. Otherwise the ceremony is taken to any of the various denominational chapels/churches in town. The certificates issued in our weddings are internationally recognized.

We will be delighted to offer suggestions, assist in whatever arrangements are required. In order for us to ensure that the wedding schedule is timely, the following documents are required at least four weeks in advance of the anticipated wedding date:
  • Copies of birth certificates
  • Copies of current passports
  • 2 passport sized photographs of each partner
  • Affidavit confirming that neither party are currently married (if divorced -   documents certifying that the previous union has been dissolved; if widowed copy of death certificate)
We have a dedicated 'wedding-coordinator' and three custom-designed 'wedding bouquets' which cover all the essentials for a successful wedding ceremony or event. As always, we happily defer to any couple's special requirements.
