CURACAO, Curacao, Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "Happy is the bride that the sun shines on." That proverb makes a wedding in Curacao even more special thanks to the region's year-round radiant skies that will surely leave a smile on every guests' face.
The Curacao Marriott Beach Resort & Emerald Casino vows to add even more bliss to a couple's big day by offering thoughtful amenities and convenient services at a reasonable price.
With JetBlue's newly launched direct service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York to Hato International Airport (CUR) in Willemstad, getting to one of the Caribbean's best-kept secrets is now easier than ever. The Curacao beach resort is just 15 minutes from the airport.
Home to a collection of unique wedding experiences, the resort hosts approximately 35 ceremonies annually and offers complimentary planning assistance with certified Marriott experts. These professionals can coordinate large or small events including diverse, ethnic, military and Curacao LGBT wedding ceremonies. Wedding packages start at $2,500.
For a couple seeking the Caribbean winds on their faces and sand beneath their toes, the Curacao resort's private beach can be utilized for outdoor ceremonies. The geometric pool deck also can be reserved. For an indoor ceremony, the Queen's Ballroom provides 3,000 square feet of flexible space that can accommodate up to 450 guests. For larger groups, the adjacent Curacao World Trade Center offers over 27,000 square feet.
One of the few LGBT-friendly destinations in the Caribbean, the Curacao resort welcomes diversity. A number of same-sex commitment ceremonies are hosted at the resort as well as Jewish weddings. The resort boasts a kosher kitchen that can be utilized for special events, with the entire kitchen staff trained by area rabbis.
The Marriott beach resort commits to exceeding wedding couples' standards when it comes to luxurious Curacao accommodations. Guest rooms feature private balconies or terraces with breathtaking views. Modern features such as high-speed Internet access, safes and coffeemakers complement the tranquil blue and yellow hues that provide a true Caribbean feel. Visitors will appreciate pillow-top mattresses topped with crisp, cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows for a sound night's slumber.
During downtime, guests of a wedding party will find plenty of things to do in and around the resort. Whether taking part in the on-site diving and water sports, heading to Christoffel National Park to view a rich variety of flora and fauna, catching a few rays on the resort's private beach, trying their luck at Emerald Casino or enjoying a massage or manicure at the Health Club, visitors will always be in a sunny disposition.
