Raffles Resort Canouan Island is a 300-acre private estate embraced by pristine white-sand beaches and one of the world's largest coral reefs. The resort, perched amphitheatre-style above a protected bay, affords panoramic ocean vistas from each of its 156 luxury rooms, suites and villas, all providing at least 560 square feet of lavish living space along with private balconies or terraces.

 

A 17th-century church adorned with colorful stained glass and mural art work stands gracefully at the center of the lush property. Fusing traditional elegance with Caribbean flare, this venue offers a fairytale-worthy setting for tying the knot. Virtually undiscovered, Canouan Island is the ultimate destination for romantic couples. Two stunning beaches span the resort, each providing palapa-shaded lounges for maximum relaxation. Guests may snorkel, windsurf, kayak or swim in the warm turquoise waters, which are protected by the coral reef on the outskirts of the bay.

 

Award-winning Raffles Amrita Spa offers an extension of the rejuvenating outdoor environment with its long list of indulgent treatments. Other visitors may prefer to unwind with a round of golf at The Trump International Golf Club, where each hole takes in views of the Caribbean Sea, or while trying their luck in the Monte Carlo-style Trump Club Privee casino.

 

Nuptial celebrations at Raffles are carefully customized by on-staff wedding planners. Brides and grooms can say I do in the church, on one of two secluded beaches or by the scenic 13th hole at the Trump International Golf Club. A cocktail or dinner reception may follow in the Villa Monte Carlo Ballroom or one of the resort's four gourmet restaurants: La Varenne, La Piazza, Jambu's, or Godhal's Beach Bar and Grill.

 

The Resort's wedding package, for the Fortunate Two, includes a personal welcome at the Canouan airport, champagne en-suite upon arrival, daily tropical fruit platters as well as wedding cake for two and champagne breakfast the morning after the wedding. Raffles also helps orchestrate the marriage license application process and arranges for a marriage officer to perform the ceremony.

 

Elegant tropical floral arrangements, ginger petal-covered aisles and a personal golf cart bedecked with flowers and palm leaves are some of the additional perks wedding couples may expect when exchanging vows at this West Indian hideaway.

Has anyone been here? My photographer friend Ruth and I will be shooting a wedding there in August - I'm SO excited. We are starting a destination business together so it will be our first time shooting a DW together. Fun, fun, fun. But I had never even heard of it before.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
