Planning our wedding in Goa, but have no idea which venue

Hi everyone,

We've finally decided to have our wedding in Goa due to most of my family living there (we live in the UK). I've always gone to stay with them, so have absolutely no idea of which hotel / resort to choose!

I like North Goa's attractions (busy beaches / restaurants), although would consider south Goa due to the unspoiled beaches, and then move to a hotel after that week to enjoy North Goa.

Would anyone recommend a venue, particulary one that does not depend on having a minimum amount of rooms that need to be booked, in order for our guests to choose exactly where they would like to stay.

Thanks :)

3. Re: Planning our wedding in Goa, but have no idea which venue

I met someone in South Goa who arranges bespoke beach weddings; just after Christmas she had arranged a wedding at Kola Beach. The wedding party was staying in various beach huts at Patnem and at the Intercontinental - they were all at the beach shack most days in the lead up to wedding and it all sounded very relaxed and organised as the bride was deciding the menu, finalising the champagne reception and the cocktails, arranging spa treatments for herself and other guests. It was by all accounts a fine wedding, not legally valid in the UK though! I think they had nipped off the register office before they had left these shores.

It was arranged by KokoIndia , a local business run by a European woman who is also a travel writer.

By the way, I thought it was quite telling that most of those staying at the Lalit the Initercontinental got a tuk tuk each morning to Patnem Beach rather than loll around their expensive luxury pool!

adam-silver : When you got married at the Taj, what was it like? I've read a few reviews that like it, but some say that the place is very dated? Not sure which ones are true and which ones are critical?
