  • Hassle Free Beach Access

    Hosting a beach wedding without a venue can be a lot more complicated than many think. There are many elements that come into play when hosting a ceremony on a public beach, such as city permits, rules and regulations for alcohol consumption, bonfires, catering, and roping off areas for privacy. Since many beaches are public, finding a location that checks off every "must-have" may prove impossible. By hosting your festivities with us, an experienced beach wedding hotel, you won't have to worry about any beach permits, rules and regulations. Our experienced coordinators will communicate with you and your wedding planner about the rules and regulations enforced at the hotel and our venues, and we'll take care of the rest.
