It’s said that the day you get married will be the best day of your life. If you don’t fully buy that it will be the best day of your life, then you can be confident that it will most likely be one of the greatest days of your life (after all, for the title of ‘best day of my life’ there is a lot of competition such as the day you actually met your soulmate and the days on which you have your children). But because it is undoubtedly a special and important day, it’s vital to ensure that the “big” things—such as the venue—are exactly what you have always dreamed of.
Now if you’re planning a destination wedding, this can be a little tricky. But if you are looking for a sensational venue in a tropical paradise, with a gorgeous beach lapped by azure waters on the breathtakingly beautiful sunset coast of Mauritius, then La Pirogue just might be the venue for you. This stunning four-star resort is imbued with a Mauritian charm and styled in a boho-chic flair—perfect for both glamourous and bohemian brides. This tropical idyll, encompassed by lush gardens, is a bridal couple's dream come true. Here’s why it might just be the perfect location for your destination wedding:
The all-encompassing wedding packages
Weddings can be extremely stressful. From the dress to the colour scheme, the seating chart (if you decide to invite guests) and the food there is a lot to think about and a lot to plan. And it’s always made a little extra complicated by planning your wedding from afar. But if you have your heart set on nuptials in the exotic island paradise of Mauritius (and who can blame you?) then you can breathe easy at La Pirogue. Here, you have the choice of incredible wedding packages to ensure that your wedding planning experience is smooth and stress-fress.
These packages include everything from the photographer and the wedding cake to hair and makeup, buttonholes and bouquets. You also have the option of adding any extra touches to these packages (in other words, you can tailor them according to your vision) to make sure that your dream day is as unique and special as you and your betrothed are.
The expert advice
Whichever wedding package you decide to choose, you can rest assured that the expert services of a local, in-house wedding coordinator are included. They are there to help you with the legalities of getting married in Mauritius, with all of the booking and planning of the day (down to the finest details), to provide you with any recommendations and suggestions if you would like them and to help you coordinate all the logistics. Most importantly, they are there to ensure that your dream day is absolutely everything you could possibly wish for and that everything runs smoothly. Your wedding day is about celebrating the love you share with your beloved, and your wedding coordinator is there to worry about all the details, so that you can focus on what’s really important—your magical day with your person.
The unbelievable setting
As we already mentioned, La Pirogue is an absolutely stunning venue. The huge property not only offers guests front row seats to the most gorgeous sunsets around but easy access to the long stretch of flawless beach, fringed by a tropical lagoon made up of every shade of blue you can imagine. Picturesque lush gardens and coconut palm trees surround the free-standing rooms which have been built out of volcanic rock from the island itself and decorated in a clean and refreshing boho-chic style. La Pirogue is a place of outdoor cinema evenings spent under the stars, indulgent lobster grills served on the beach amongst candlelit tables and sunset cocktails mixed to perfection and enjoyed while watching the sun make its slow descent into the sea. This is a fairy tale wedding destination like no other.
The array of possible ceremony venues
At La Pirogue there is no one ceremony venue that you have to make use of. Instead, you can find the venue that perfectly matches the vision for your big day. Whether you would like your wedding on the beach with your close friends and family, on the jetty overlooking the cerulean lagoon for an intimate occasion or amongst the lush gardens with your nearest and dearest, you are sure to find the perfect venue for your nuptials. Whichever venue you select, La Pirogue will do their magic on the day to make it look absolutely perfect.
One thing to keep in mind is that although Mauritius enjoys fantastic weather practically year-round, there is the occasional cloudburst and thundershower. But don’t let that deter you because even when that happens, La Pirogue will ensure your wedding decor is at its best at the perfect backup venue (which will be shown to you before the day). Here, you can rest easy knowing that every venue is outstanding in its own unique way.
The world-class spa
Pre-wedding jitters are totally normal, even for the most relaxed brides. Which is why it’s highly recommended to indulge in a mini spa day before you say “I do”. La Pirogue’s remarkable Cinq Mondes Spa offers guests a host of treatments, beauty services, body rituals, scrubs, massages and facials for the ultimate day spend luxuriating in the elegant and peaceful haven. Take a timeout from thinking about your wedding and realign your mind, body and soul with some wonderful pampering at the hands of the expert Cinq Mondes therapists. Pre- and post-treatment you can make use of the Zen-like relaxation area (as you sip on some calming tea or detox water) and the excellent spa facilities which include an incredible hammam, a steam room and plunge pools. Enjoy some “me time” to ensure that you look and feel your best on your big day while you let your wedding coordinator take care of all the details.
It’s the perfect place for your honeymoon
One of the greatest perks of having a destination wedding is that once the wedding is over, you don’t have to travel long distances or worry about jet lag taking a few hours (or days) out of the beginning stages of your new chapter—you can make the most of the incredible destination of Mauritius itself. And La Pirogue is a truly memorable honeymoon destination. With signature La Pirogue experiences, stellar beaches, sublime accommodation and excellent options for dining (special private dinners can even be arranged for you and your betrothed), it’s a phenomenal honeymoon venue which is bound to stay with you for the rest of time.
