Exclusive Destination Weddings with Authentic Caribbean Themes

Now Offered At Cayman Islands’ First Boutique Cottage Hotel

Couples looking for the epitome of privacy can “take-over” Cotton Tree, the Cayman Islands’ first boutique cottage hotel, for their very own destination wedding.  For their wedding day, couples receive exclusive use of the luxury hideaway which beautifully evokes the spirit of the Cayman Islands with over two acres of lush garden setting of tropical flowers and avocado, guava, mango and cotton trees for which the hotel was named. 

Three nights’ accommodations for the couple in one of the four pastel-hued, plantation-style cottages just steps from the Caribbean Sea are also included.   To prep for or unwind from the big day, couples are treated to one of Cotton Tree's  signature body treatments or an hour massage per person. Served in-suite or beachside among the hotel’s sea grape trees, couples also receive a three-course dinner with wine pairing one evening prepared en-suite by one of Cotton Tree’s selected personal chefs.

To ensure the success of every couple’s destination wedding, an experienced Wedding Planner from Celebrations Ltd. arranges everything from the booking and coordination of a Marriage Officer and preparation of the legal documentation for the wedding license to an hour of professional wedding photography and a choice of four authentically Caribbean themes with varying décor, music and favors.  Guests of the hotel also receive a media library of books, music and DVDs; breakfast food items (a selection of coffees and teas, juices, eggs, cereal, milk) pre-stocked in the cottages or a continental breakfast delivered daily; WIFI and local calls; fresh fruit; bicycles, and roundtrip airport transfers during any stay at Cotton Tree.

Depending on theme selected, rates for the packages range from $8,375 to $10,000, including government tax.  The remaining three cottages (each sleeping up to 4 with the exception of one cottage which can sleep 6) can be arranged to accommodate up to 12 family and friends at a special discounted rate of $660/night.  The special rate also applies if the honeymoon couple wishes to extend their stay.
