Hotels can take care of the details, like planning reception menus, floral arrangements, wedding cakes, hair appointments, and photographers so you can sit back and enjoy your day. Sint Maarten offers a range of hotel options, from large and luxurious resorts to intimate boutique hotels.
Back to Nature
On the French side of the island, St Martin’s very own nature preserve, Loterie Farm, is a unique and special destination. Located on 135 acres, Loterie Farm is reminiscent of a verdant rainforest and offers everything from outdoor adventures, like ziplining and hiking, to swimming in the elegant pool and dining in the open-air restaurant. If you prefer a setting with a lot more greenery and a real tropical vibe, this is an ideal choice. It will feel as though you are getting married in a picture-perfect secret hideaway.
Off the Beaten Path
Consider something a little different to celebrate your big day. Find out about renting a private villa where you can tie the knot surrounded by friends and loved ones while enjoying a professionally catered feast. There are many private villas on both the French side and the Dutch side of the island, with venues and décor to suit any mood. Want to extend the party? Rent the villa for a few more days and enjoy your honeymoon in paradise.
Don’t Forget to Sail Off into the Sunset
Trying to think of the perfect venue for a post-wedding celebration? What better way to spend a day in paradise than sailing the blue Caribbean waters aboard a catamaran.
