“This was our wedding venue for over 100 people last weekend.
Pros: gorgeous location, good lawn to hold ceremony or reception, club house is big enough for contingency plan for 100 pax, good dance floor area and the rooms are lovely. You can sit out on the coconut lawn with your guests staying at the venue (we booked the whole place out over the weekend), it’s very relaxing and the staff try their best to cater for your needs.
Cons: communication leading up to and on the day of the wedding could be better. A few things went wrong (which had previously been discussed and agreed over emails and after a personal site visit made last August) such as glasses weren’t pre filled for the first toast at our dinner, wine wasn’t on the tables for guests to help themselves, the projector and audio during speeches broke and the team were very quick to jump in straight after dinner and clear everything out. The night before the wedding a unknown man came into my room at 4 am which was a bit odd – lucky I was in there to ward off any unwanted guests! The day after the wedding (Sunday) I was disappointed to see they had endorsed the next wedding structure to be set up right on the main lawn – we were checking out on the Monday and had just finished our farewell brunch so couldn’t use the lawn even though we had booked all the rooms and paid “”location premium”” for exclusive use of the grounds. So it felt a bit sausage factory like – clearly it’s a very popular venue!
Overall I’d say it was a great wedding, very expensive but stunning location – you’ll have to be patient with the emails and be prepared to invest a lot of time in going back and forth organising various members the YL Team and thinking of things that may be obvious – such as clearing the rubbish off the beach that YL overlooks.”
