With less than a week left before the highly anticipated nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, many are looking for ways to feel like a part of the big day, and hotels around the world are responding by offering special royal wedding-themed packages. Whether your clients are looking to celebrate on May 19 or beyond, here are a few of the hotels aiming to make them feel like royalty.
A Wedding Fit For Royalty
Chances are that your clients won’t get the chance to be married inside London’s Kensington Palace, but they can get the next best thing with the Royal Kensington Wedding Package being offered at the Milestone Hotel and Residence, which sits directly opposite of the palace. Valid now through Nov. 30, 2018, the Royal Kensington Wedding Package includes champagne cocktails on arrival; 2-night accommodations in a Grand Master Suite; full English breakfast daily; a private 2-hour tour of Kensington Palace with a certified Blue Badge guide; a Bentley limousine transfer for a Kensington/Knightsbridge shopping trip; and a Royal Afternoon Tea on one day.
Also included in the package are amenities to make guests feel like royalty on their wedding day. Guests who book this package will receive a souvenir wedding gift from Kensington Palace; a photo consultation and session, with local photographer Lucy Elliott, using the palace as a backdrop; plus pre-wedding beauty and relaxation treatments. For those who want to have their ceremony at The Milestone, couples can choose from the hotel’s intimate Oratory—the original private chapel of the house, which accommodates just six guests—or the wood-paneled Windsor Suite, suitable for eight to 30 guests. The Milestone will also arrange a full wedding reception and/or wedding celebration dinner, all tailored to each couple’s individual needs.
The package is priced from approximately $6,235 dbl for the accommodations package, or from about $8,647 dbl for the full package, including the wedding ceremony at The Milestone. For more information, visit milestonehotel.com/events/weddings.
Royal Treatment Caribbean Style
One of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first public outings together was while on a trip to the Caribbean, so it’s no wonder that resorts in the area are giving travelers the royal treatment. If your clients can’t make it to London to celebrate the royal wedding, Curacao’s Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort has a package that will still leave them feeling like kings and queens.
Available now through Dec. 31, 2018, the Royal Retreat package starts the experience with accommodations in the property’s aptly named Royal Suite—a 1,400-sq.-ft. suite featuring a 2-story great room with a dining table for up to eight people, a spacious living room, multiple balconies, and views of the Caribbean Sea. The royal treatment continues with a welcome champagne amenity; dedicated butler service; a 6-course, in-suite dinner with a customized menu; a full-day private boat charter to the neighboring island of Klein Curacao, complete with cocktail service and a picnic lunch; and a 90-minute couples massage in a private Spa Suite with time for pre and post-treatment relaxation, plus a bottle of bubbly and sweet bites. The Royal Retreat package also includes private, luxury roundtrip airport transfers in Curacao, plus daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the resort, including beer and wine.
Pricing for this package starts at $5,300 for a 1-night stay. For more information, visit santabarbararesortcuracao.com.
