Chinese celebrity couple, actors Yan Kuan and Du Ruo Xi, chose the exclusive AYANA Resort and Spa in Bali to celebrate their tropical wedding nuptials in March 2014. Voted No. 1 on the list of the World's Best Wedding Venues by CNNGo, AYANA Resort and Spa is Bali’s most sought-after venue for enchanting tropical destination weddings. 

The exclusive resort occupying 1.3km of coastline set on dramatic cliffs overlooking Jimbaran Bay, offers a range of breathtaking venues and experiences for legal marriages and renewal or vow ceremonies.

Famous Chinese actors Yan Kuan and Du Ruo Xi opted for a late afternoon sunset wedding ceremony at the remote cliff-edge Wedding Gazebo followed by an intimate dinner for 50 VIP guests. To ensure complete privacy, they booked the 3,000 sqm Presidential AYANA Villa, which combines all the magic of a tropical celebration with the style and comfort of a secluded villa. 

A live band and fireworks display entertained guests, many of whom were famous celebrities and who also stayed at AYANA and the attached RIMBA resorts.

AYANA Resort and Spa Bali is renowned for its shimmering glass wedding chapels, elite ‘wedding planners to the stars’, iconic Rock Bar after-parties and breathtaking views. But what really sets AYANA apart is its ability to offer truly unique and memorable experiences, unmatched anywhere else in the world.

From intimate family celebrations to grand ballroom galas, AYANA’s seven ocean-front wedding venues set a captivating stage for unforgettable weddings. Couples can choose from two state-of-the-art glass chapels, ‘Tresna’ and ‘Astina’, with adjacent Bridal Villas overlooking the Indian Ocean. For exclusive privacy, the AYANA Wedding Gazebo is set on the cliff-edge in the grounds of the Presidential AYANA Villa.

Couples seeking exotic Balinese allure can opt for ‘Asmara’, a 350-year-old Javanese ‘joglo’, or the ‘Bale Kencana’, a traditional ‘bale’ with ocean views. The vibrant Champa Garden is a stunning outdoor option amongst a grand canopy of 2,000 white frangipani trees, while the private jetty is ideal for an intimate ceremony just for two.

No detail is too small in customizing each couple’s special day. AYANA Resort and Spa’s professional wedding planning team includes Mandarin-speaking wedding consultants, and the resort can offer translation services for wedding liturgy and menus if required. 

Unique services also include a horse-and-carriage arrival and white dove release at the conclusion of the vows, signifying a peaceful and blessed life together. Other dedicated facilities include an on-site beauty salon and the White Door bridal boutique.

Another highlight for wedding guests is AYANA’s Thermes Marins Bali Spa. The world-famous spa features the world’s largest Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool, providing the natural curative properties of seawater through the 5,000-year-old healing ritual of Thalassotherapy, and the once-in-a-lifetime Spa on the Rocks couples’ wellness experience.

AYANA has no minimum stay requirement for couples getting married at the resort – it can be as little as two days, but most brides and grooms stay longer to enjoy a honeymoon after the marriage. A choice of experiential packages include the 'Something New' Bali Wedding Package at AYANA Villa, the three-bedroom Presidential Villa set on 3,000sqm of cliff-top land over Jimbaran Bay.

This package enables couples to share unforgettable moments before during and after their special day – such as creating their own signature fragrance at AYANA's perfume-making studio, and escaping to Rock Bar Bali for sunset cocktails above the crashing waves.
