What kind of safety measures do these resorts have?

That’s a valid question. Short answer? Quite a few. While more and more people are getting vaccinated, our top resorts understand that safety has been and continues to be a top priority. Since reopening their doors in June 2020, many all-inclusive resorts promote health protocols designed to optimize all-around cleanliness during your tropical stay. Spend more time relaxing and less time worrying. From social distancing at pool decks to sanitized suites, resorts like Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana ensure you can experience stress-free luxury.

So, what does that mean for wedding venues? Do I need to socially distance my guests?

Most wedding venues, with or without focused health protocols, guarantee private ceremonies away from other resort guests. The only exceptions that might seem less secluded are beach wedding spaces, where travelers are still allowed to enjoy themselves during a procession.

Check with your favorite resorts if their beach is private or public. Some destinations can’t completely block a beach ceremony from further guests or fellow travelers. Despite this, most wedding departments include day-of security or staff who will keep your matrimony isolated from the rest of the general guests.

Because of the aforementioned vaccine progress, you might not have to socially distance your guests during your ceremony. Resorts even offer on-site testing so you can expect a safe stay, and even safer departure home. Even better? All of our top resorts offer expansive seating charts that can accommodate a destination wedding for 50 guests while maintaining an intimate environment.
