Celebrate in an idyllic tropical paradise


An alluring setting for a romantic getaway or a memorable celebration.

Celebrate your engagement, honeymoon, anniversary, and birthday or just run away together for a while to the secluded ivory sands of the Indian Ocean. The beauty of a tropical oasis with all the benefits of 5 star service and standards creates the perfect mix for the ultimate party. Our experienced events management team will help you plan your memorable occasion and be there on the day to make sure it runs perfectly. Perhaps you’d like a private evening on an Arabic dhow on Mida Creek or a sunset ceremony overlooking the white sands of Watamu.


There’s plenty of space to accommodate your guests and the bride and her bridesmaids can relax in the spa while we arrange the finishing touches to the big day. The ceremony could be conducted in the shade of a whispering palm tree in our exotic gardens, or barefoot on the beach. Let us take care of everything from the cake to the name cards on the table. The local choir, vibrant and rhythmic, will sing you into matrimony before the Arabic dhow sails you off into the sunset, sipping champagne and toasting your new life together.

Registrar to perform the ceremony, including fees, Marriage License and Certificate
