OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen Daniel Waibel married Claudia Fehrenbacher on 23rd April at Centara Grand Azuri Resort & Spa Mauritius, the couple were the first to wed at the new five-star resort on the northeast coast of the island.

They were pampered with a complimentary candlelit dinner in a secluded corner of the Lazuli fine dining Mediterranean restaurant on the wedding evening and were delighted with the special turndown service when they returned to their room, housekeeping staff having created a pathway made from rose petals from the door to the bed, which was also decorated with the petals of red roses. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mr and Mrs Waibel, who are from Germany, said they had chosen the resort because they had read excellent reviews written by guests soon after the opening, and because with its beachside setting in the new Azuri village it offered the perfect romantic background.

The resort undertakes the legal formalities required for a wedding ceremony in Mauritius, including handling the necessary documentation and visiting with the wedding couple the different offices in Port Louis that have to issue and approve documentation.

The wedding couple also booked extra items such as a bridal bouquet, buttonhole, photographer, hair dressing and makeup.

The ceremony was held on Perch Beach, which is accessed directly from the resort, and which has a backdrop of the calm waters of the turquoise lagoon, making an ideal setting for the wedding pictures.

The newly wedded couple said they were thrilled with their wedding.

“This was a perfect day for us, we could not have wished for a lovelier setting or for better service,” they said, adding that they will be returning for an anniversary visit.

Centara Grand Azuri Resort & Spa Mauritius, which opened at the end of 2013, is a five-star resort located directly on the beach at the new Azuri oceanfront village complex, a 420-acre development that is home to luxury residences, retail outlets, and sports and marine services.

Accommodation is a combination of 100 rooms and thatched suites, with a choice of garden view rooms and ocean facing rooms. Each suite features its unnamed (5)own private plunge pool.
