Zanzibari Weddings & Honeymoons

We excel in the art of bespoke weddings – as intimate for two as they are for 200. Our silver crescent of Indian Ocean beach makes the ideal venue for a simple bare-foot ceremony. We are also experts in the provision of evocative wedding bowers, which can be set either against the backdrop of our translucent aqua-blue waves, or amongst the palms or even by the pool. Our wedding team is exceptionally well-versed in working with you on personalizing everything from flowers and champagne – to hair to make-up. If you’d like an authentic Swahili ceremony, why not arrive by dhow? And we’ll provide a hand-woven palm arch, traditional music and the best of Zanzibar cuisine; alternatively we’re adept in staging an elegant formal banquet. And, whether you’d like to reserve the entire hotel and grounds for the event or just our superlative honeymoon suite we will consider it an honour to make your special day a memory to treasure.
