The boutique resort is home to just 36 bures and villas, which makes it ideal for intimate celebrations. Couples can choose a barefoot beach wedding, a traditional chapel ceremony, or a private service on the deck of their Beachfront Pool Villa.
The resort’s onsite Romance Coordinator will help couples arrange their seaplane arrival into the resort, as well as hair and makeup by professional therapists on the island, an experienced photographer to capture the memorable occasion, and a romantic dinner on the island’s stunning oceanfront.

Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa is a boutique, adults-only resort nestled within a stunning sheltered lagoon along the southern coast of Upolu Island in Samoa. It boasts an array of unique settings for ceremonies, including the resort’s pristine beachfront, over-water pier, golf course, and lush gardens.
With a dedicated, in-house events team and a range of wedding packages available to couples, the resort promises a seamless, professional and stress-free event. Every wedding at Sinalei is totally tailored to each couple’s preferences and channels Samoa’s 3,000 year-old way of life called Fa’a Samoa, which offers a place for lovers to be still and enjoy each other’s company while the world around is still spinning.
Home to untouched, long white sand beaches, volcanic mountain ranges, lush rainforests, mesmerising waterfalls, blowholes, lava caves, and ocean trenches, Samoa is geographically astounding, making it a mesmerising location for wedding photos.
Muri Beach Club Hotel
Imagine a white sandy beach, tropical lagoon waters lapping at guests’ feet and the sun setting over the mountains. Most people would agree that this is the dream wedding scenario.
Not only does Muri Beach Club Hotel weave the natural beauty of the Cook Islands into its celebrations, the hotel’s Wedding Coordinator takes care of all arrangements for couples, including organising wedding licences, local celebrants and witnesses if need be.
Whether couples are looking to elope or want a big ceremony with lots of family and friends, the hotel boasts a variety of wedding packages to suit different needs and tastes. What they all have in common, however, is Muri Beach Club Hotel’s ‘no fuss, no stress, just pure happiness and enjoyment’ philosophy!
No matter how simple or nuanced your taste, the magic of Sumba creates an extraordinary wedding setting that can’t be surpassed. Luxury eco-friendly resort, Nihi Sumba, can accommodate the most intimate affair, or support a resort-wide takeover. They have even orchestrated an impromptu ceremony for enamoured guests when the mood struck.
Sumba weddings are loaded with culture. Whether couples choose to marry on the resort’s long stretch of beach, in the mystical rainforest, or clifftop above the ocean, exotic romance is captured by the colourful ceremony of local tradition.
Village priests will lead the ceremony, which includes cultural beliefs such as chewing local betel nut, a marriage ritual symbolising the sealing of the union, similar to the exchanging of rings. Other features such as Sumbanese wedding garments, a ceremonial march of horses or water buffalo, fire dancers, and more may be incorporated for an authentic and euphoric Sumbanese celebration.
Coco Bodu Hithi
Coco Bodu Hithi’s incredibly beautiful island makes the ultimate backdrop for a Maldives ceremony. Add to that Coco’s imaginative, proactive service and dedication to providing every guest a warm Maldivian welcome and the scene is set for a very special occasion.
Each ceremony is customised to reflect the personality and tastes of the couple. The details of décor, seating, music, food, beverages, photography and videography are all selected by the individuals involved and then realised by the resort’s ceremony planners.
Although the weddings held here are not legally binding, they’re uniquely romantic and totally unforgettable. Couples who have exchanged their vows in the eyes of the law can take this time to declare their lover for each other in the eyes of mother nature.
