Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular in India. They are the best way to ensure complete participation from guests without allowing them to be distracted by their daily lives. Depending on how you go about it, destination weddings can either be the ideal opportunity to organize an extravagant affair or if managed well, they can work out cheaper than hometown weddings, especially if you live in metropolitan cities like Delhi or Mumbai.
Mana @ Ranakpur
Rajasthan, India has a uniquely designed restaurant-cum-banquet area that can comfortably accommodate 250 people, indoors in the comfort of air conditioning. On cooler days and for bigger gatherings, the indoor banquet spills over to the outdoor banquet area which comfortably accommodates another 100 people. The area by the infinity pool is great for cocktail parties and evening events. In terms of living accommodations, the resort has 49 cottages and rooms and the facility of extra beds is also available. In the event that the wedding party cannot be accommodated within these rooms, the management will provide full assistance to book rooms at the next best hotels as well.
Additional facilities like in-house laundry and the luxurious spa and beauty parlor for the grooming and pampering of the wedding party, especially the bride, make the choice easier for those looking to plan their wedding away from home. Moreover, the hotel can make arrangements for additional special touches like Rajasthani folk musicians and elephants to add that festive touch.
Mana @ Ranakpur scheduled to open in September 2011 is a resort sprawled over 3.5 acres of lush greens. The resort features cottages and rooms, a luxurious spa, an infinity pool, and facilities for many activities within the hotel premises and the management is gearing up to be ‘THE’ budget destination wedding spot.
