Beach Weddings & Banquets
Beach weddings are when time gives way to tide and everyone is immersed in the magic of salt, seawater and sand. They are when brides and grooms elope with a chosen few to escape reality for romance. They are when menus depend on fishing lines and plans revolve around afternoon siestas. They are when everyone takes a few days out of life to do only one thing - celebrate the coming together of two people in love.
Taj Exotica - Bentota, Sri Lanka
The Indian Ocean beckons. The green landscape coupled with a beach view makes for a spectacular setting. The Sri Lankan peppers, appams, stews - together whet your appetite. The Arrack makes you giddy. The breeze on the Sea View terrace intoxicates. And the stage is set for a fabulous beach wedding.
A banquet at the Taj Exotica, Bentota, should have the guests making the most of everything Sri Lankan cuisine can offer - from its spicy curries and stews to Lumpa Rice, Balsamic Red Snapper and Steamed King Prawns, along with a live band and a Fisherman's theme.
A beach wedding in Goa is unique. After all, Goa has Susegaad - the fine art of taking it easy, Feni, its own recipe of coconut milk and spices, and a breathtaking landscape that boasts of a sea view, a hill view, and a mountain view.
Your wedding can take on many forms in Goa. It can be a casual, fun-filled affair. It can be a solemn, traditional event. You can use our many backdrops to make it different - an old 16th century fort, a Portuguese village, a sprawling tropical resort - all of them available with the best in local seafood, live music and a flavour that is quintessentially Goan.
Vivanta By Taj - Fort Aguada, Goa
A 16th century Portuguese fort and lighthouse add some history and an old-world romance to a conventional beach wedding. Celebrate at our 4,000 sq. ft. Fish Tail Lawns and 10,000 sq. ft. Bay View Point that give you a view of the fort and the Arabian Sea. It's Goa, but with a twist. And perhaps you can celebrate that twist with a theme wedding?
Vivanta By Taj - Holiday Village, Goa
How does a wedding banquet under a 300-year-old banyan tree sound? Or dancing on the beach under the open skies? The dress code can go from flip-flops to exotic themes. The cuisines - from Mediterranean to Indian to Goan. What remains unchanged is the spectacular view of the sea, the perfect ambience for romance, a private butler on call, and an absolutely laidback flavour of a wedding that only comes at the Vivanta, Holiday Village.
From Portuguese cottages to fresh fruit martinis, the hotel captures the essence of a Goan beach wedding beautifully.
Taj Exotica, Goa
Sun in its atriums. Shade in its corridors. Flowers in its many patios. There is nothing as romantic as the slow waltz of a beach wedding at the Taj Exotica, Goa.
When you have 56 acres of gardens to play with, you can do anything. And we recommend you celebrate everything Goan. Bring in the live music, the giant seafood platters, the dancing and the Portuguese beer and wine. Put every event before or after the siesta. Let this wedding be as much about Goa as it is about falling in love.
