For couples seeking a one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony or reception location, it’ll be hard to go past Fiji’s Malamala Beach Club in the Mamanuca islands.
The romantic private island, located a 30-minute journey from Denarau, was opened in August last year by South Sea Cruises and features 10 cabanas that overlook powder white sand and crystal clear waters. Visitors to Malamala Beach Club can enjoy a range of included non-motorised watersports in the shallow waters surrounding the island, such as snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding. Onsite facilities also include The Club with an adjacent bar, an infinity edge pool with day beds and The Deck, an open area also available for exclusive hire during the day.
‘The Venue‘ is a private location on the northwestern side of Malamala Island which can be hired for either a destination wedding ceremony or reception. The facility has a capacity of 50 guests and features a small balcony where guests can enjoy the sunset following an afternoon wedding. There are no pre-set wedding packages offered, however couples can use The Venue as a “blank canvas” to fully customise their very own setting & seating, decorations, floral arrangements, etc, with Malamala Beach Club supplying the catering and beverage packages.
To book sole-use of The Venue, there will be a minimum food and beverage spend required of FJ$4,500 for 8 hours, or FJ$2,250 for 4 hours.
A private bar can also be arranged, serving a selection of beers, wines, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. Prices range from FJ$55 per person for the 1-hour Bronze Package, through to FJ$175 per person for the 5-hour Gold Package.
There is also an option for exclusive-use of The Venue (from 3:00pm to 6:00pm) and The Club (6:00pm to 11:30pm) for Weddings. This package is priced at spending a minimum of FJ$15,000 on food & beverages.
(All above prices exclude the required launch transfer cost.)
And, if you want to rent out the entire island for your own party for up to 300 guests, that can also be arranged priced from FJ$37,500 for up to four hours (after 5pm), or FJ$45,000 for up to 8 hours and FJ$52,500 for up to 12 hours (inclusive of private launch transfers). Lower costs apply for smaller group numbers.
All prices are subject to change, but are used as a guide.
