First and foremost, the beach in Amanpulo is an absolutely breathtaking sight that will instantly take you by surprise. When we arrived, we were greeted by an endless stretch of pristine white sand and a bright, watercolor-like blue green sea.

An unassuming island that never aggressively sought for attention, Amanpulo earned a name in the international scene—including VIP guests from around the world—because of the tasteful, luxurious experience it offers all island-goers.

Brides and grooms—and all visitors, for that matter— will have the time of their lives in the Casitas and Villas. A Casita comes with a spacious bathroom and an expansive view of the sea, while a Villa has its own private pool and an outdoor lounge that leads straight to the beach. Imagine taking a dip in the pool or the beach any time you wish! Not only that, you even have your own butler and chef.

The garden in the Villa is also perfect for a small and cozy pre-wedding or post wedding dinner. An intimate setup overlooking the shoreline will be perfect for the occasion.
