6. Amazing weddings. I kept the best for last. Gran Velas offers an amazing flexibility on the personalization of your wedding day. We LOVE that they allow just 1 wedding per day so their focus will be entirely on you and your guests. They offer multiple settings for your celebration: on the beach, garden , terrace , pool side, indoor ballroom or chapel and they are all exquisite. You are not tied down to a particular style because here the sky is the limit and they work with us to create the mood , the style , the vision you always dream of. Here your destination wedding can really reflect your unique love story.

7. The care: because now more than ever it is important for us to know what the resorts we trust with the care of our clients are doing to protect the health and safety of everybody I really think it is important to share Gran Velas post COVID-19 protocols:

a- The events will be held with less capacity ( do not worry, they have enough space for a big wedding party too)

b- All the tables setups are made with very strict sanitization procedures. The staff members wear gloves for each setup

c- They organize the access and space for dinner as follows: max 8 people per table at banquets with 6ft away between tables: 2 guests per tables ( school, U, Russian setups etc); 6ft distance between chairs for auditorium setups

d- Station with hand sanitizer at all events

e- Plated service: they will provide the meal directly to the table using a service tray and a tray holder. All dishes will be protected with food cover

f- Dance floors will be bigger to respect physical distance

g- When necessary to move from one place to other guests will be invited to take only the courtesy transportation of the property

h- All beauty Salon staff members will wear face mask to provide service.

I imagine than by now you are looking over to your monitor and saying “ok, where is the catch here?” You are absolutely right! Here is what you need to know. As I mentioned they only allow 1 wedding per day and this mean that you have to move pretty quickly to make sure your date is available.
