Bali’s tremendous destination wedding venue

Bali is already regarded as a top honeymoon destination. And rightly so. However, with Bali now known as the top holiday destination on the planet it’s no surprise that it has seen a sharp increase in the number of wedding parties descending to the island to celebrate the occasion in their own little paradise. And rightly so. With so many attractions across the island; from luxury spa’s and wellness centres to beautiful beaches and evening sunsets. Unlike other luxury wedding destinations (such as Mauritius) Bali has a lot to offer with many different areas, a bustling nightlife, and endless restaurants serving cuisine from all corners of the world. There is one particular villa estate (yes, estate!) that has gradually become an extremely popular choice as a complete accommodation and venue for destination wedding parties. Say hello to Villa Shalimar Estate.

And, as it was recently refurbished and renovated (in late 2016), Villa Shalimar is in impeccable condition. And if you think that sharing your accommodation with so any other guests is going to be a bit cramped, think again!

It’s fully managed and staffed with butlers, housekeeping, cooks, gardeners and security, so you will be well looked after no matter what you have planned for your stay – consider this your own private beach resort.
