Romance by Paradisus

Posted on by Paradisus Resorts
 

Boasting impeccable taste and style amidst idyllic locations, each Paradisus property offers personalized romance options to meet the desires of the most discerning clientele.

Paradisus Resorts have award winning locations in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The Dominican Republic Resorts include Paradisus Palma Real; The Reserve at Palma Real; Paradisus Punta Cana; and The Reserve at Punta Cana. The three properties in Mexico include Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla (Paradisus Resorts’ first adults-only resort), Paradisus Playa del Carmen la Esmeralda (a family-friendly resort) and Paradisus Cancun.

Paradisus’ Romance Team offers experienced Romance Planners based both in the U.S. and resort side. Couples begin their romance journey by speaking to the dedicated US based Romance Planners that handle all of the pre-wedding details and assist in customizing and perfecting the style of each wedding with the bride and groom.

On-site Romance Coordinators execute the bride and groom’s vision while on-property.  The coordinators handle all on-site logistics and are the go to team ensuring all aspects of the occasion are flawless.

Additionally, Paradisus offers the services of their in-house decor companies to assist and advise in every step of the planning process, from welcome dinner to reception. These companies include Caribbean Celebrations in the Dominican Republic and Alquimia Events in Mexico. For those who prefer not to be consumed with the pressures of planning, the resorts also offers a variety of pre-arranged packages, including intimate vow renewals and elaborate anniversary celebrations.

For many, wedding planning begins long before the proposal and Paradisus’ romance offerings allow for the ultimate fairytale wedding. The Love at First Site Package invites those planning a wedding to visit the resort and see the space first-hand prior to the big day. In turn, guests of this package are then able to receive the value of their stay as a credit towards their wedding. The package includes accommodations, 15% savings on all spa treatments, a site inspection of the ceremony and reception locations with a member of the Romance Team, menu tasting and an in-room VIP welcome fruit basket and champagne.

Once a couple decides Paradisus is their ideal destination wedding location, there are a variety of wedding and vow renewal packages they can choose from to fit any wedding style and budget:

Tailor-Made Romance: This special edition package encompasses more than just the actual wedding day.  Inspired by the seasons, Tailor Made allows the bride & groom the pure freedom to design their own wedding; it’s all about personal choices with our unique offerings.  This package is about more than just the wedding, it’s about the time spent with loved ones and including them in this special occasion. Included are bridal party gift certificates for the YHI Spa, a three hour welcome BBQ party, wedding ceremony, one hour post-ceremony cocktail party, three hour private sit-down or buffet dinner reception and a farewell for the new couple, including a couple’s massage and a “Dinner Under the Stars.”

Allure: The newest wedding collection at Paradisus and no doubt will quickly become the most popular.  With a soft palette of colors to choose from, it leaves plenty of room for the creative eye to imagine a wedding day filled with pure wedded bliss.  The package includes a wedding ceremony, one-hour cocktail party and a three-hour private sit-down or buffet style dinner reception. Allure was designed for couples who appreciate the softer side, for couples who let their love speak for themselves.

Aqua: For the bride and groom that desire an intimate, traditional and elegant event. The package includes a wedding ceremony, one-hour cocktail party and a three-hour private sit-down dinner reception, decorated in true Caribbean style with an aqua color palette. Special amenities for the couple include a complimentary room upgrade, late check-out and a 15% savings on spa services.

Chill Out Chic: This package suits the modern couple who wants to combine beloved traditions with a chic and laid back atmosphere. White garden chairs and a wood canopy set the tone, while oversized, rustic lanterns line the aisle for an added touch of bohemian flair. The Chill Out Chic package includes a ceremony and buffet style dinner for 24 guests.

Fantasy: As the name suggests, this dreamlike package has the feel of an unconventional, modern cocktail soiree with a few touches of a traditional wedding. A post-ceremony private cocktail party keeps this package different from the typical sit-down meal.

Wish: This package is for those seeking the perfect destination wedding in an intimate atmosphere. The Wish offers a romantic setting for the bride, groom and their closest family & friends and is considered the perfect elopement experience. To celebrate afterward, guests are guaranteed a wedding dinner at one of the property’s à la carte restaurants.  Wish is complimentary with a minimum 7-night stay in a The Reserve or Royal Service room category.

Each Paradisus property boasts picturesque locations and venues to host the big day, regardless of the chosen wedding package. Paradisus Resorts boasts intimate Wedding Gazebos, while Paradisus Palma Real, Paradisus Punta Cana and Paradisus Playa del Carmen entice clients with the Gabi Lounge for chic dinner receptions. Beachside ceremonies at Paradisus Palma Real, Paradisus Punta Cana and Paradisus Cancun provide the perfect backdrop to a romantic wedding, and poolside receptions at any of the properties add a fun and festive touch to the party.  Paradisus has a one wedding, per venue, per day policy; ensuring each wedding receives the respect and individuality it deserves.

Whether couples are looking to bring their families together or enjoy their alone time, Paradisus’ special guest services will help make their occasion hassle-free. Paradisus’ Family Concierge program is perfect for large families and groups.  This includes pre-arranged activities for children, babysitting services and daily turn down with milk and cookies. Upon arrival, kids will receive a welcome bag with a hat, t-shirt and mini sunscreen. For smaller, more intimate affairs, Paradisus offers the adults-only Royal Service room category upgrade with a strong focus on personalized attention and detail. Royal Service guests are invited to enjoy a private pool and beach area with Bali beds and palapas, in addition to the exclusive Royal Service lounge and butler service. Royal Service guests are also offered preferential reservations for the property’s restaurants, spa treatments and excursions.

Beyond the ceremony and reception, Paradisus Resorts offer additional amenities to make the special day unforgettable. At Paradisus Palma Real and Paradisus Playa del Carmen, the YHI Spa Bridal Suite ensures that every bride is pampered in style in a private retreat, reserved exclusively for the wedding party. Brides and their VIPs are invited to relax with such treatments as chardonnay biomassages, orchid body masks, manicures and pedicures. Complimentary champagne with wine and cheese platters are provided for all to enjoy.

After the “I do’s,” Paradisus remains the ultimate destination for romance. Whether it’s a honeymoon or an anniversary celebration, Paradisus offers packages to fit post-nuptial desires, as well. For honeymooners who stay at least 7 nights, The Glow upgrade package offers complimentary in-room sparkling wine and a tropical fresh fruit platter, as well as rose petal turndown service and a 10% savings on spa services for the bridal couple. Available for both honeymoons and anniversaries, The Passion package offers a relaxing couple’s massage and romantic “Under the Stars” private three-course dinner, including a sound system to set the mood. Post-dinner in-room ambiance is available with chilled champagne, rose petals and a scented bubble bath – the perfect combination for celebration.
