Alila Manggis resort in East Bali is now offering couples the opportunity to tie the knot in spectacular style, with underwater weddings planned and orchestrated to create the most memorable wedding album – not to mention a wedding ceremony that will give you bragging rights among friends and family for evermore.
Bali’s east coast, which is known for its great dive sites also has very clear waters, making it idea for underwater photography. And the hotel has seven great dive sites nearby, so this is a great place to experience the deep as part of your honeymoon if your wedding in the deep has inspired you to explore a little further.
Truly, madly, deeply underwater weddings
Underwater Wedding packages are suitable for divers and non divers. Alongside two nights’ accommodation, dining and spa experiences, the packages include a wedding rehearsal in the pool, dive introduction and dive gear familiarisation, a wedding celebrant, two dive buddies and a traditional jukung boat decorated for the occasion to transport you to and from the wedding spot.
This package also includes a four-hour underwater pre-wedding photo shoot before the big day, conducted either in the ocean or the resort pool by professional underwater photographers from Drewperspectives, specialists in photoshoots in underwater settings and also partnering with a number of other prestigious resorts across the Far East.
Of course, not every bride and groom want to get their hair and wedding outfit wet, and there are many other locations, both inside the resort and nearby, where you can choose to host your ceremony. You will have the services of an onsite wedding planner to help you plan the perfect setting and celebration to match your style.
Alila Manggis offers a great range of accommodation in contemporary Balinese style, ranging from superior rooms through to a seaside suite and the one-off Villa Idanna – a super-luxurious and private space where you can retreat from the world and enjoy the romance of this Indonesian island landscape. Add in the resort’s beachfront spa, a traditional Balinese pavilion restaurant and a whole host of cultural treasures nearby, and this is a honeymoon that can be as action-packed or as tranquil as you please.
