“During the season of 2017, a wedding proposal took place at one of our hotels, with our personnel’s assistance in order to turn it into a big surprise! A year after, in 2018, the lovely couple selected the same hotel for their wedding ceremony. It was all so romantic! Not only did they choose us for their special day, but they booked the entire hotel for their family and friends to offer them unforgettable moments and accommodation comforts. In addition, the pre-wedding party took place at our secluded beach, accompanied by the sound of live festive music. A bridal suite was decorated with rose petals, champagne on ice, balloons, and candles. The bride was escorted to the ceremony by a professional violinist while walking down the beach aisle. During the big day, our personnel’s contribution was the key factor of this successful and unforgettable experience.” – Mitsis Hotels Marketing Department

“A day full of adventure for a couple eloping. This included horseback riding, a helicopter ride, off roading in a jeep to private beaches, trashing the dress in our famous tide pools! The couple was followed by a photo/video team the whole day and created the most amazing portfolio of footage!” – Ms. Caroline Montondon, Wedding and Social Sales Manager

“At Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat, we are keen on providing a once in a lifetime wedding experience and want to make sure every need of our clients is met. With our skills, knowledge and experience in organising bespoke events, we are no strangers to some of the most demanding, unusual or extravagant requests. To name a few, we turned one of the resort’s six swimming pools into an outdoor dance club with lights, music and decoration. The entire team worked on draining the pool, adjusting light fixtures, rearranging sun loungers into rainbow coloured beds and turning the venue into a pink party zone in keeping with the main theme of the wedding.” – Ms. Camila Semeraro, Director of Events

“Hosting lavish weddings has meant that we have received many extravagant requests, from riding in on elephants to walking with tigers. One client started by asking if we had a helipad and then proceeded to ask if he was able to fly onto the property via helicopter, one arm strapped to the ladder 007 style, the other hand holding a martini (shaken not stirred) with the tails of his tuxedo sailing behind him, with a hairdresser on standby for when he landed!” – Natalie Cadell, Director of Sales (Weddings and Events)
