Do you dream of a destination wedding that blends sunny Caribbean vibes with upscale elegance?
From inspiring scenery to five-star amenities and sumptuous cuisine, the sky is the limit at these fabulous hotels and resorts in Puerto Rico.
The St. Regis, Bahia Beach Resort
Nothing says tropical vacation like a fruity cocktail served in a hollowed-out coconut, and that’s exactly how your guests will be greeted when they arrive at The St. Regis Bahía Beach Resort.
Set on 483-acres tucked between the majestic El Yunque rainforest and the crystalline waters of the Espíritu Santo River, The St. Regis provides one of the most exotic wedding venues on the island. Two miles of secluded beach and a pristine golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. offer ample opportunities for guests to unwind, and each of the 139 guest rooms and suites is attended to by a butler to ensure a worry-free stay.
The resort also boasts 27,000 square feet of event space, including three outdoor lawns and the majestic Astor Ballroom with soaring 21-foot ceilings and intricate chandeliers. When it comes to the big day, a planner will manage every last detail so you can focus on what’s really important: celebrating with the people you love.
Condado Vanderbilt Hotel
For a storybook Puerto Rican wedding, look no further than the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, an opulent, time-honored destination in San Juan’s Condado neighborhood. The property has hosted dignitaries, celebrities, and captains of industry throughout its hundred-year history, and it will set the scene for your unforgettably luxurious wedding.
Whether you’re looking to be married indoors or al fresco, the hotel offers exceptional options for weddings large and small. From cathedral ceilings to Rosenthal bone China to custom-designed Murano glass chandeliers, every unique touch just adds to the grandeur. After the celebration, guests can ride the elevator home to one of the hotel’s 320 guest rooms and suites.
Dorado Beach Resort, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Whether your tastes call for an elegant ballroom affair or a sand-in-your-toes ceremony, your Wedding Services Manager will see to it that no detail is left unaccounted for when you get married at Dorado Beach Resort, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. You and your guests will be enchanted at every turn, from the ambajadores who escort each traveler around the property, to the cuisine that is as exquisite as it is flavorful.
The resort offers a true oasis that feels miles away from the rest of the world, even though it’s just a 35-minute drive from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU). Before and after your wedding, guests can spend time putting around three world-class golf courses, indulge in holistic relaxation at the five-acre Spa Botánico or borrow a bike to explore the Rockefeller Nature Trail – if they can pry themselves away from their spacious beachfront accommodations.
Fairmont El San Juan Hotel
Leave an indelible impression on your guests with a stylish wedding at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel. A storied Caribbean gathering place since 1958, this chic property blends classic sensibility with laid-back beach vibes for an atmosphere that’s tropical, sexy, and sophisticated. Set in Isla Verde, the resort is just a five-minute drive from San Juan’s airport, making traveling to and from your destination wedding a breeze for your guests.
Let your wedding stresses melt away and leave the planning to the expert El San Juan staff. The majestic Grand Ballroom provides a gorgeous setting for indoor events, or you can opt to exchange vows outside against the dramatic backdrop of the ocean or a 200-year-old Banyan Tree. And if you want to keep the party going once your reception is through, the on-site Brava nightclub is one of the island’s most popular after-hours spots.
