Catering for an average of 200 weddings in a year, the award-winning resort has a 40-seater Wedding Chapel located in an intimate and secluded setting of the resort which features a glass wall and ceiling at the altar with sweeping views of the reef and the Ocean.
The resort has 442 Ocean facing rooms with private balconies as well as The CHI Spa, one of the largest and most luxurious spas in Fiji with private treatment villas and stunning ocean and rainforest views.
Shangri-La’s Acting Senior Conference & Events Manager, Ms Milika Taukei says couples from all over the world come to Shangri-La’s Fiji to get married.
“Due to the size of our resort we have multiple ceremonial and reception venues to cater for more than one wedding a day. On average, we cater for approximately 190 weddings per year and couples range from Asia Pacific, Europe and the South Pacific,” Ms Taukei says.
“We have various options available be it at our stunning Seaside Chapel, on Takali Beach or one of our garden venues. Set amidst a plantation of palm trees at the water’s edge, the non-denominational Seaside Chapel is located in an intimate and secluded setting,” she shares.
Ms Taukei highlights that the two things couples enjoy most about their weddings at the Shangri-La’s is the service experience that they are offered, the natural beauty that the island holds and the friendly people that serve them.
“The resort’s Event Management Team will guarantee a worry-free Wedding and Reception down to the last detail, ensuring a perfect Wedding and Reception,” she adds.
Shangri-La’s ‘3 Do’s’ when planning the perfect Fiji Wedding for couples:
- Check for wedding venue availability on the preferred dates requested
- Ensure from the time of enquiry to confirming the wedding, to meeting the couple before the wedding, to wedding day, right to saying goodbye, that we have a dedicated wedding coordinator to do that
- Make the couple aware that Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort has venues that can cater for 200-300 guest.
