Wedding at Shandrani, Mauritius

We are planning to have our wedding at the Shandrani Resort & Spa in November 2011. Has anyone got married here recently? Would like to hear your opinions of the hotel/wedding locations etc.

Thanks,

Laura

Hi we have just returned today from the Shandrani. This is our second visit, got married there in 2000 and returned this year to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The hotel is still fantastic although the service did let us down a bit this time. There were weddings taking place every day and we gather that they have inflated the price somewhat and introduced different wedding packages. We did speak to most of the brides and they all said they had a fantastic day. The bonus about this hotel is that as there is only one wedding per day, if they get a rain shower, (they are very brief) they'll delay the ceremony until it passes. There are lots of different places to get married on the resort and you basically get to choose where you want to hold the wedding (on the beach or golf course) and then if you want a meal in one of the restaurants or a BBQ on one of the beaches. I think one couple went out afterwards on a trip on a catermeran. You do still have to choose what cake, flowers, location, photographs etc you want. The only thing I would advise is to e-mail the hotel prior to arriving to book your restaurant reservations. The buffet which you don't have to book is nothing special but the other restaurants are great. Problem is they are all fully booked by the time you arrive. The restaurants are quite accommodating if you don't like something on the menu. Don't be put off by the planes flying overhead, they have increased somewhat in ten years but you can't hear from your room and the noise only lasts a few minutes and quite a something to see. Another bonus is after an 11 hour + flight the 10 minute drive to the airport is welcome. 10 years ago we did Mauritius and Seychelles and this time we did Cape Town then Mauritius. The new spa is excellent plenty of facilities to have your hair and make up done.

If there is anything specific you want to know, I will try and help.
