Private villa weddings are increasingly popular with couples looking for a unique way to celebrate their love for each other in secluded natural surroundings. Unlike more traditional ceremonies and receptions, which often take place at impersonal hotels, villa weddings are intimate occasions that allow a couple to exclusively share their special day with their closest family and friends.
A wedding at Samudra can be tailored to suit your personal style, beliefs and expectations. The ceremony can be held within the tropical grounds, nestled amongst granite boulders and trees, overlooking the ocean. Or you can exchange vows right on Samudra's private beach, the island backdrop guaranteeing a memorable and inspiring personal moment.
The villa's generous layout and design provides an idyllic location for any special event. Each of the antique buildings are works of art in themselves and every section of the property offers a unique perspective, allowing you to design the celebration around a series of scenes that move through the day and night.
Start with cocktails and canapés in the dramatic Bali house, which opens onto the infinity pool and picture perfect seascape views. After the ceremony, relax before the reception, taking in the afternoon sun and cooling off in the refreshing water. Then as the sun sets behind the offshore islands, enjoy a garden reception on the manicured lawns, gathering at the long table, carved from a single tree and covered by a simple but elegant thatched gazebo - the perfect place to feast al fresco on the in-house chef's exquisite fare.
When the party mood takes over, wander through the grounds to the spectacular octagon room, perched on its own cliffside overlooking the ocean. The teak floored pavilion and private bar is ideal for dancing, live music and stargazing. A high quality surround sound system, pull down screen and projector add options for multimedia entertainment, a rare pleasure in such a remote, natural setting.
When the excitement subsides, a short stroll along the beach leads to Samudra's hidden lower suite, a special place to begin a honeymoon. Built into the cliffside, with panoramic sea views right from the bed, the room is set away from the rest of the villa and therefore offers an inspiring, romantic haven.
Even if you chose to rent the villa with friends and family, Samudra's spacious design and rolling gardens mean moments of privacy are easy to enjoy. This allows you to make a wedding at Samudra the perfect combination of shared and private joy.
