Viva La Villa: Unique Luxury Venues for Your Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding Villa

As told by Apple Vacations Destination Wedding Expert, Ashley Surkin

Are you are dreaming of a super intimate, ultra unique and lux wedding on par with nuptials worthy of the rich and famous?  Are you a laid back bride who thinks a jaw dropping backdrop is more impressive than flowers? Are you searching for a place where your closest friends and family can celebrate without the commotion of other vacationers?

Then renting a private villa could be the perfect choice for you!

With a private villa your guests can enjoy the laid-back intimacy of this home away from home. No need for dinner reservations or a fight for a spot on the beach. Host your party well into the wee hours of the night and take a dip in a pool that never closes!

Most villas come with private cook services which allow meals to be catered to your preferences and on your time, not resort time. And with sizes ranging from 2 to 40 rooms, it doesn’t matter how long your guest list is, there’s plenty of space for everyone.

And if you think you can’t afford a villa in places like St. Barts, Turks and Caicos, Virgin Gorda or even Barbados, think again. In some cases villas can be more cost effective than traditional hotels!

Speaking of Barbados, look at these gorgeous photos (shown below) from a recent destination wedding at Landfall Villa. This six-bedroom property offers the ultimate in beachfront luxury with its famous Sandy Lane Beach location, majestic, arched doorways and a courtyard designed for royalty.  A surround sound system, air-conditioned bar with sitting area, and large, free-form infinity edged swimming pool make this the ideal place for entertaining wedding guests.

Whether you’re tying the knot or renewing your vows, a private villa hideaway is the picture-perfect venue for your romantic event!

*AVDW Tip: When choosing a villa as your venue, make sure the floor plan works with your desired wedding set up. Your guests traveled a long way to be part of the festivities so being able to see you exchange vows is imperative. Be certain that no one would be seated around the corner!
