Considering an adults-only destination? You’re not alone. In fact, many of our most beautiful destination wedding resorts are exclusively adults-only, for guests aged 18 and over. Whether you want adults to get some alone time away from children, or you simply want a more mature atmosphere for the duration of your wedding, follow below for just a few of our 5 favorite adults-only wedding resorts.
Starting off our list of 5 favorite adults-only wedding resorts is the new Iberostar Grand Bavaro resort, part of the Iberostar resort complex in Punta Cana. This Dominican Republic resort exudes excellence for your destination wedding, with luxury colonial decor throughout. From the moment you enter the koi-fish pond entrance, you’ll realize you hit the jackpot. Beyond the elegant wedding ceremony venues, guests will enjoy the many delicious restaurants, and the pirate ship in the middle of the property, which also serves as an exclusive private reception or cocktail hour venue (when it’s not a lively lounge).
The extravagant El Dorado Casitas Royale is a luxurious adults-only offering, situated in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Weddings can book entire blocks of townhouse like rooms here, although standard rooms are equally as gorgeous. Ceremony venues have no capacity limit here, and brides will have access to the stunning bridal floor, featuring everything needed to get ready for the big day. Catholic ceremonies are permitted at the chapels, and nearby offshore, guests can explore the largest artificial coral reef in the world.
This high-rise resort rests in the heart of Cancun’s hotel zone, right in the action. Stay on-site at Secrets The Vine and explore contemporary a-la-carte restaurants and chic music lounges. Or take the afterparty offsite after your reception to explore the many nightclubs and live music venues that dot the area. Every room has a view of the ocean or Nichupte Lagoon, and the beach is one of the best the area has to offer. Wedding couples may have a hard time selecting the ceremony venue, as there are 5 to choose from, like the signature wedding gazebo, or the Preferred Club Cabana venue.
Want an intimate destination wedding at a resort specifically designed for romance? Then consider the Couples Negril resort in Jamaica, in an area known for its world-famous beaches and vivid sunsets. Wedding guests can expect eclectic vibes and modern grounds. Go all out for your reception with the ‘Irie Celebration’, featuring a 4-course buffet for 30 guests, premium open bar, white linen-draped tables with centerpieces and a 3-hour DJ included.
For young adults, or even just those young at heart, you may want to hold your destination wedding at Breathless Cabo San Lucas, located on the edge of El Medano Beach. During the day the pool parties are lavish and high intensity, and at night you can take to the area’s famous nightlife and cantinas. Next door you can take wedding photos at the scenic marina, or utilize the bridal treatment room to get ready for your ceremony while feeling relaxed and pampered.
