Named in Travel & Leisure’s 500 Best Hotels in the World for the past two years, Half Moon is a destination wedding and honeymoon paradise. The resort features a combination of suites, cottages and villas, ideal for wedding events of any size, plus more than 2,390 square metres of indoor function space, wide variety of outdoor venues that include sea views and secluded gardens and an army of event specialists to handle planning logistics. Guests can also enjoy the resort’s many activities, including championship golf, dolphin lagoon, equestrian centre, tennis courts and water sports.

A wedding begins with a preliminary visit to the resort, at special rates, for the family, the bridal couple or their planners. Half Moon’s wedding consultants arrange for them to meet the catering manager, reservations manager, florist and other appropriate staff. The resort can arrange theme parties, suggest music groups, and other ideas to make a wedding unique and hassle-free.

Half Moon recently put their team of sales, convention/banqueting services and other romance providers through a rigorous training and certification programme conducted by prestigious June Wedding Incorporated.
