So whether your ideal wedding includes the vivid hues of a brilliant sunset over the Gulf, gentle breezes as you walk down the aisle of a beautifully manicured lawn that overlooks the sparkling water during the day, or a stately ballroom with spectacular views and exquisite cuisine, this tropical paradise is the perfect site for a dream wedding.

This includes a world-class spa that provides an array of services to pamper, relax and refresh the bride and groom, wedding party and guests.

Guests bringing children to the wedding will appreciate the resort’s professionally-supervised child activity program Beach Kids Club for those ages 5-12. While the adult guests are relaxing on the beach or at the poolside bar, or enjoying a round of golf or a tennis match, the children will have a great time participating in such activities as face-painting, themed days, and crafts. Even more appealing is that the activities in the Beach Kids Club program are complimentary to guests.
