HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM (Aug. 13, 2019) – Guiding guests down white sand aisles, crafting romantic backdrops for beachfront vow renewals, and catering to the romantic whims of loved-up couples, Fusion Resorts across Vietnam are rolling out new wedding packages, ethereal commitment ceremony setups, and indulgent honeymoon possibilities.
“We’ve seen a clear rise in honeymooners and couples who want to say ‘I do’ at our properties over the last few years,” said Atilla Erda, chief operating officer of Fusion. “We believe it’s because Vietnam has the right balance of stunning beaches, rich cultural experiences and exoticness, without the high price tag of some other popular honeymoon and destination wedding locations.”
Saying ‘I do’ in Vietnam’s Former Imperial Capital
The newest member of the wellness-inspired hotel & resort brand, Alba Wellness Valley by Fusion, is tapping into its natural location, surrounded by verdant mountains and steamy hot springs, and launching a new wedding package.
The comprehensive offering includes set-up of the ceremony location amid lush tropical gardens, a celebrant, a photographer to capture the ceremony and reception, a champagne fountain, live music and an MC, a banquet service inclusive of wedding cake, a room for the bride to get ready with a makeup artist, and a complimentary honeymoon night with a late checkout. The resort can host up to 100 wedding guests and has a range of accommodation from private bungalows to chic suites overlooking a lake.
“Our authentic Japanese onsen spa and our range of wellness activities, from sunrise yoga to water meditation in our natural hot springs, help our couples find balance at an exciting and busy time in their lives.” said Hylton Lipkin, general manager of Alba.
Wedding package prices start at USD236 per person for the three days, two nights package and applies for weddings with a minimum of 40 guests.
Sandy Nuptials on Vietnam’s Largest Island
The all-spa-inclusive resort, Fusion Resort Phu Quoc, has just launched the “Lovers Embrace,” an intimate beach wedding package on a tropical island.
Couples who wish to say ‘I do’ on the resort’s white sand beach will be able to walk the aisle through a bamboo archway and say their vows under a wedding arch dressed in white silk and fresh flowers. All that’s needed for the service is provided including a wedding guestbook, boutonnieres and bouquets, and a welcome drink for guests before the vows. A wedding gala dinner is also included with set menus of the bride and groom’s choice, two-hours of live music, and two-hours of free-flow beverages including beer & wine.
The couple (and their guests) can relax pre- and post- ceremony at Fusion’s Maia Spa & Wellness Facility, with at least two therapies per day being included in the room rate. Massages, wraps and facials, along with wellness activities like yoga, are on offer there. Each villa also has its own private plunge pool to unwind by.
Package rates start at USD 3,850 for 10 people and from USD7,950 for 50 people, exclusive of the nightly room rate.
From Proposal to Vow Renewal on the Beach in Cam Ranh
