MALDIVES: In line with the growing demand from GCC visitors for destination weddings in the Maldives, Jumeirah Vittaveli has launched a new enchanting overwater wedding venue, offering a unique, romantic setting to host wedding ceremonies and vow renewals throughout the year.
The wedding venue sits serenely in the resort’s overwater fine dining complex, adjacent to the French fine dining venue Fenesse,the newly opened wine library Cuvée, and overlooking the tranquil overwater lounge Cyan. The stunning wedding location features panoramic glass doors to give guests 360-degree views of the spectacular island scenery and offers luxurious decorations, choice of music and lighting that can be adjusted to create the perfect mood.
Amit Majumder, General Manager, Jumeirah Vittaveli, commented:“For the past decades, the Maldives was known to be one of the top honeymoon destinations worldwide. Today, the Maldives is also growing in popularity with residents across the GCC as an intimate wedding destination surrounded by breath-taking scenery. At Jumeirah Vittaveli we host an average of 50 weddings and vow renewals every year, and we are confident that more brides and grooms to be will choose our new incredible overwater wedding venue.
Amit added: The Maldives provide a wonderful, romantic location for weddings, and we have arranged a number of stunning ceremonies, on a secluded beach, a remote and deserted sandbank, and even an underwater exchange of vows. We can now offer this spectacular new venue to guests who wish to celebrate in style at Jumeirah Vittaveli. It was very heart-warming to receive feedback from our guests that the best part is when you watch your loved ones walk on the water and down the glass floored aisle that stretches over the shimmering turquoise lagoon.”
The wedding venue can be booked for ceremonies in advance or once guests are on location. Additional romantic packages include the Wedding Ceremony in Paradise or the Romance in Maldives offer which includes a romantic dinner by the beach and couple’s spa massage.
