Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, “the most entertaining beach resort,” consistently caters to destination wedding couples and is taking it to the next level with two new amazing packages. The family-owned St. Thomas Resort is conveniently located in the U.S. Virgin Islands, so no passport is required to travel there. Bolongo Bay is a popular wedding destination thanks to its personalized approach to romance, friendly staff, fun atmosphere and, of course, its beachside setting.
The first new offering is the Sunrise Sand and Sea destination wedding package. This option provides couples with the best of both land and sea. It includes a beach wedding followed by a cruise reception on Bolongo’s own 53’ catamaran. For $3,875, the Sunrise Sand and Sea package includes:
- Wedding coordinator services
-A beach wedding ceremony with arch and flowers
-Three-hour reception cruise for up to 30 guests with open bar, custom lunch and option to stop and swim with the turtles.
Additional guests beyond the 30 can be added for $65 per person, as the catamaran can accommodate up to 49 guests. Upgrades are also available to allow each destination wedding couple to completely customize their W-day experience at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort.
The second new offer, which began on Veteran’s Day 2010 and continues through April 30, 2011, gives all active duty military members a 50% discount on all destination wedding packages booked before April 30, 2011. The offer is valid only on destination wedding packages, excluding food and beverage, and on any length of stay. It is subject to availability.
“Oftentimes, our military members and their spouses have just a few days to celebrate their wedding day and spend time with each other,” says Lorena Leonard, Romance Director at Bolongo Bay. “We wanted to do something to make their day even more special and show our appreciation for all that they do.”
Wedding packages begin at $1,000 ($500 with military discount) for the Barefoot on the Beach Wedding which includes wedding coordinator services, clergy, wedding ceremony, bottle of Champagne, two keepsake flutes and witnesses.
Bolongo Bay Beach Resort also offers you and your guests the option of booking a traditional stay or going the all-inclusive route. To take advantage of this military destination wedding discount or to book one of Bolongo’s many destination wedding packages, couples can call Lorena Leonard, Romance Director, at 1-800-524-4746 or visit the resort’s web site.
