If you’re looking for the perfect venue in which to celebrate your wedding, look no further! Now that Covid-19 restrictions are lifting our award-winning, luxurious, all-inclusive resort offers the perfect venue in which to take your first steps together as a married couple.
Supported by Forbes’ coveted “Sharecare Verified” designation – a health security verification granted to lodging establishments – we’re ready to treat brides, grooms and their guests to a spectacular wedding event.
This annual Global Star Rating system has been recognizing exceptional hotels, restaurants and spas around the world since 1958, once they’ve been evaluated by a team of professional inspectors. Properties are rated regularly using up to 800 criteria to establish a global benchmark for luxury travel, providing discerning travelers the tools with which to make informed destination decisions.
In addition, the prestigious “Sharecare Verified” designation, we hold confirms that we’ve complied with an extensive list of hygiene protocols, allowing us to provide the wedding of your dreams now that the world is opening up again.
We’ve also been following the “Travel with Confidence Program,” with strict sanitary measures, which have been approved against Covid-19 by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Covid-19 lockdown afforded an opportunity for our wedding specialists to receive training from world renowned speakers over a three-month period so that they could keep up personally and professionally with current trends. All of our staff is certified in different types of weddings, including multi-cultural, LGBT and others and we have a designated “romance team” to assist you in planning your dream wedding.
Throughout, the wedding team is able to assist prospective couples via webinars with independent planners and travel advisors to instill the client with confidence and plan a successful wedding.
Excellent Value, Exceptional Perks –
The good news is that couples who postponed their nuptials are now eager and ready to travel and they can plan their wedding with confidence with us – in a beautiful, luxurious setting.
“Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach is in the top 10 of ‘Best Value Destination Weddings’ on Trip Advisor based on testimonials from our recent couples,” states Ambar Molina, Regional Wedding Manager for La Colección Resorts. “It is a direct result of our flexibility in not only changing dates but also in accepting full cancellations as many of our customers were financially stressed during the pandemic. The price-value combination is a total winner for all of our guests.”
An added “bonus” is the that pricing has remained at 2020 levels for all 2021 weddings, allowing couples to upgrade their nuptial celebrations. A “one wedding per day” policy and making sure that all wedding suppliers comply with all health and safety protocols is another draw.
The restrictions during Covid-19 have resulted in some additional “perks,” for an additional fee, depending on the service selected. These include:
Live streaming the wedding for family members who decided to stay home or who live in countries that still have closed borders, allowing them to share in this special moment.
- Gift giving for the newlyweds has also been made available electronically to provide them with enhanced experiences while on property. Included in these are suite-upgrades, champagne, spa services and more.
We offer all beach-front suites with expanded terraces with sweeping views of a private, pristine beach and tranquil Caribbean Sea. Our award-winning Gem Spa with its renowned “Hydrotherapy Ritual,” a 10-step process, which includes an aromatherapy steam room, clay steam room, ice room, polar plunge and pebble walkway, ending in the comforting “pool of sensations,” sets the perfect stage for relaxation before the Big Day.
Our varied dining options range from casual pool fare, bountiful buffets, tantalizing Italian cucina, to the AAA 5-Diamond Le Basilic, and our Hi-Tech mystical dining experience at The Table.
A host of activities on land and at sea throughout our resort is sure to keep everyone busy in between the wedding festivities.
We look forward to hosting you for this memorable event!
