With Destination Weddings being a big market in India, It is the time now when Indian Tourism Industry should start looking into promotion of more Destinations (apart from already exhausted Rajasthan and Goa).
Idea of touring around Southern India more specifically Tamil Nadu and Kerala was lived up when I was invited for a FAM tour of one of the Beach Resorts in Mamallapuram near Chennai. Its an hour drive from Chennai International Airport which is as good as you driving any Resort in South Goa from Airport. The Resort is all set to invite the Couples who are looking for more uncommon and private Beach Destinations to celebrate the most memorable day of their life.
The Resort has about 142 Rooms categorised into Chalet Cottages, Poolside Cottages, Private Pool Villas, Sea facing Villas etc. but all of them has got a very typical south Indian feel pleasantly mixed up with modern amenities.
There are variety of indoor and outdoor Venues which could take up a gathering upto 2000 people so fit enough for an extravaganza if you are looking for any. I personally found the Beach Side Venues to be really suitable for a small gathering (100-150 pax) weddings. The view of Sea at the backdrop is completely clear with no shabby shacks and resturants in between. The sound of crushing waves is loud and audible!
The Resort offers variety of outdoor activities like Fishing, Zorbing, ATB Biking, Outdoor Games and what not for a perfect holiday. The Food is amazing! and not to mention the typical south Indian meal also has its own charm.
Chennai being just an hour away, logistically any kind of Setup, decoration, Music, entertainment etc could be well organised.
