Isla Navidad, Mexico – When it comes to destination weddings, there are many choices, but few that truly provide the perfect balance of extraordinary beauty, superior service, ultimate privacy and attention to every detail. Look no further than Casa Colina, a luxurious private villa nestled on Mexico’s Pacific coast where the rich and famous come to relax. Whether you’re recently engaged or planning to renew your vows, you’ll find everything you need to plan the intimate and extraordinary destination nuptials that will not only amaze your guests, but surpass the wedding you’ve dared to dream about.
Located in the state of Jalico, one of Mexicos’s safest areas, this secluded paradise is set among exquisitely landscaped gardens and surrounded by majestic mountains and the turquoise colors of the Pacific Ocean. For the duration of your wedding trip, the entire villa belongs solely to you and your group – and the staff is dedicated to your every need. From the spectacular infinity-edge pool, to the roof-top palapa with incredible views of the gorgeous landscape, to the private chef who will prepare meals when and where you desire, you can customize the wedding – and vacation - of your dreams. Six private, spacious guestrooms with ocean and mountain views accommodate the bride and groom and up to 10 guests, perfect for small, intimate weddings. For larger groups, the villa offers the perfect private oasis for the bridal party or family of the happy couple while additional guests can be accommodated nearby at the famous AAA four-diamond Isla Navidad Grand Bay Resort, just a short distance from the villa.
The spacious Casa Colina is big enough to host a bride and groom and your destination wedding of up to 80 guests. Choose to recite your vows overlooking a lush tropical setting with the ocean and mountains in the background, or at sunset next to an infinity edge pool decorated with floating candles and flowers. Top off the event with a champagne toast while being serenaded by a live band and then feast on a gourmet meal prepared by your own executive chef.
Casa Colina’s private staff can transform the villa’s stunning “Top of the World Palapa” – a chic rooftop indoor/outdoor dining area with a fully-stocked bar and 250-degree views of the mountains and ocean – into a romantic enclave with fresh flowers, candles and more. The bride and groom can also wine and dine their guests in the villa’s elegant indoor gourmet dining room with a fireplace, hand-laid brick cathedral ceiling, Balinese furnishings, bar area and enormous pocket doors that open up to the outdoors with views of the lagoon and mountains. Casa Colina also has several outdoor terraces that are the perfect settings for cocktails, as is the villa’s outdoor pool area, which after dinner can be turned into a beautiful post-wedding party area with an infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi while the bride’s and groom’s favorite songs play from the villa’s surround-sound home theatre system.
With year round availability, Casa Colina has dates open for weddings in 2013 or 2014. A 50% deposit is required to secure booking. Balance is payable 14 days prior to booking. Security and provisioning deposit is equivalent to one night’s rate. Rates include airport pickup and drop off, chef, staff, and laundry but exclude food, beverages, and phone.
