The Best Day!

We got married on June 8, 2024, and truly had the best day. The Golden Beach Resort team was awesome, from the groundskeepers, front-desk staff, kitchen staff, and, of course, the event coordinator, Helen! Everyone was so helpful and made us feel like our day was as important to them as it was to us. The venue itself is beautiful, the food was incredible, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful venue that truly does it all! Thank you for everything!

Perfect day and prefect venue

Things started out a little rocky. We had a lot of trouble with the original event coordinator. Rebecca took over just under a month before our wedding date and since then it has been smooth sailing. Both Rebecca and Lawrence (the manager) made our day so beautiful and special. They went above and beyond. I am so thankful for their help. The food was also amazing. The chef they have is incredible and we heard from everyone nothing but praise. Many people said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Based on our incredible experience I would highly recommend Golden beach for your wedding.

If your looking for a stress free wedding day... keep reading!

I just got married at Golden Beach this past weekend. Take out all the normal pandemic bride dilemmas and restrictions this was a freaking dream!!

While planning: Cindy was always a phone call, text or email away and went above and beyond my expectations! She calmed me down more times then I can count and I am extremely grateful for her and her daughter who was the bartender at the wedding!

During your wedding weekend: I will admit I didn't think a few things through went it came to planning the reception but that did not matter because Cindy and Lawrence had my back and between them and my family every hiccup was solved before I even knew about it. From the moment I arrived on scene for the wedding weekend they pulled me and my now husband aside and discussed expectations, they met every single one! Becca at reception will make sure you and your family have a great stay and the rest of the team will be making your whole weekend or day feel as magical as you'd want it too!

Food: I sadly never got to meet the chef or do a tasting (pandemic wedding problems) I was a bit nervous if I chose the right food package, I went with the gold package and you would not be disappointed, many people came to compliment us about our food choice and me and my now husband 😁 loved it as well! (Yes, I got to eat at my own wedding.. Lawrence will make sure of it)

Honestly if your looking for AMAZING views, service and overall experience, you'd be crazy not to check them out, I promise you won't be disappointed!

ps: I'll add pictures of our hall set up for reception when I get them 😊

We had a beautiful candlelight evening service on NYE. It was absolutely amazing. Great food, fantastic venue and people! We loved our day and the cottage that came with our rental. Provided a place to get ready and have pictures done before the service! My niece even did her speech on the wedding and Golden Beach

She went by far above and beyond her job description and I could never thank her enough!! BOOK YOUR WEDDING WITH GOLDEN BEACH!!! ??????. Can't wait to see all of you soon. Thanks again Lawrence and Tracey. We love you guys!

We had a fantastic experience holding our wedding at Golden Beach! Rating would have without a doubt been 5 stars across the board if we hadn't have had a few hiccups midway through our contract. However, this negative experience is not at all indicative of the wedding staff in charge in the months leading up to and on the day of our wedding. Everything went off without a hitch and if there were any flaws (which we saw zero issues), the GB team did an amazing job keeping it under wraps and smoothing them out.

We had the day of our dreams and have heard nothing but fantastic things from all of our guests. Great food, fantastic service and a lovely team of people. Absolutely recommended.

Thank you so much for everything!! Words can not discribe the amazing experience at Golden Beach Resort. Melissa went over and above what was need. She made our day perfect. Lawrence was there right to the end of the night and eager to help with anything needed. The rest of the staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, the hall was beautiful and Olga 's hill was gorgeous for our dream wedding!!! Our guests praised Golden Beach for the amazing atmosphere and food!! Thanks for all you did, to make everything perfect!! It was our dream wedding!!! We look forward to returning !!

Words cannot express how amazing our wedding day was. From the moment we went to take a look at the venue until the last dance went absolutely perfect. Very accommodating, helpful, friendly and Melissa just helped it all come together perfectly. She definitly knows her stuff. The cottage location was great, the view of the ceremony was stunning and the food was excellent! If I had to just put it in one word...EXCEPTIONAL! Thank you for an amazing wedding!

The resort was fantastic, they had everything needed to make the day go off without a hitch and we're more than ready to help us throughout the night. The general manager of the resort invited the wedding party into her home as one of our photo locations which went above any expat ion I had had. The servers were curious and professional,the resort rooms have everything you would need to stay there the night of the wedding such as pots pans cutlery etc. There is a restaurant on site for guests as well for the next morning. I can't say enough good things about the staff! They were there every step of the way to assist and make your day perfect.
