Destination Weddings are gaining immense popularity in India. With such popularity every hotel/property is doing their best to accommodate this demand. The whole idea of Destination Weddings is to spend your Big Day with family and friends. And what better than all being present at the same time, at the same place. It is a great break and at the same time calls for one big party!
Destination Weddings at Radisson Blu – Resort and Spa – Alibaug
Radisson Blu Alibaug is the most beautiful wedding venue for Destination Weddings in India. Located in close proximity to the city of Mumbai it is the perfect wedding venue for people from all over India. It has an inventory of 156 rooms, suites and villas each featuring a gorgeous private garden or balcony.
The closest airport to Alibaug is Mumbai. It is 105 km from Mumbai, which equals to a 3 hour drive. Another way to get here, which a lot of people prefer is through Mandwa by sea. For this, you will need to get to Gateway of India at Churchgate. There are regular ferries, for a very nominal amount. The average time taken by boat is about 45 mins and another 30 mins from mandwa to Radisson, alibaug. Another option is to hire a speedboat, which would reduce your travel time to half of the original time taken.
Radisson is one huge property which has gorgeous venues. The best part is each venue is different from the other. In case of destination weddings this factor is extremely important as you want your guests to have a different feel and experience for different events. Lets take a look at the different venues:
Chancellor & Courtyard
Chancellor is an indoor banquet which can easily hold upto 100-150 people. It has an attached pre function area which can be used for high tea, snacks etc. Courtyard is an open air area which can again hold a similar number of people. The combination of both these venues is a perfect setting for a mehendi ceremony. The outdoor can be beautifully decorated with bright colours while the indoor décor can be minimalistic and elegant. It gives the guest the best of both the experiences.
This place is a favourite with wedding planners and all the guests. It is beautifully designed at the heart of the property. This venue is surrounded by a lovely water body an all sides. There is a small bridge connecting the venue to the property. This bridge is used for Jai Mala since it is an elevated platform by itself, so perfect visibility for the couple. Also, some great clicks can be captured here.
Greens like the name says is a beautiful lawn which is maintained to its highest standards. It is a huge venue which can accommodate about 1000+ people. It is surrounded by trees on all sides which adds to its beauty. This area is used for Sangeet, Wedding Reception etc. Huge set ups can be done here and this place is an epitome of what a Big Fat Indian Wedding would look like
Spice market is another open air venue. It is adjacent to the massive swimming pool. This place is ideal to hold a sit down setting. If throwing a pool party this area can be used for barbeque brunch, entertainment, food stalls etc It can easily accommodate 500+ people.
Piano lounge & Razz Matazz
The beautiful architecture of this place is enough to give you a high. The piano lounge has a very English look and defines luxury at its best. It’s a beautiful place to unwind and relax.
