Overview

Set on the Bentota Peninsula, Centara Ceysands boasts a sublime location, with the meandering Bentota River on one side and a picturesque ribbon of golden sand melting into the Indian Ocean on the other. The setting here is simply blissful – and a wedding at this serene retreat would be naturally beautiful with a hint of luxury.

Our Classic option features a couples’ massage, a wedding coordinator, bottle of sparkling wine for the ceremony, a two-tiered wedding cake, wedding photographs and video, a one hour boat ride and lots more traditional touches. If you celebrate with our Premier Wedding, you’ll be further treated to a suite upgrade on the wedding night, a five-course candlelit dinner for the newlyweds and canapes for up to ten guests after the wedding. For the ceremony, Kandyan dancers & drummers will perform – a truly unique blessing.

With our Luxury Wedding, you’ll both be indulged with a suite upgrade for the entire stay, a bottle of champagne, fruits, flowers, chocolate and canapes with wine on arrival, as well as breakfast in bed the following morning, a photo album with 36 photographs and a plethora of special wedding gifts from Centara.

At Centara Ceysands, you’ll enjoy a luxurious and relaxing honeymoon with fabulous facilities and warm, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality. Each room is stylish, spacious and beautiful, all offering views of the glistening Indian Ocean or sublime Bentota River.

Guests marrying at hotels in Sri Lanka will need to send photocopies of the documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of travel.

In Resort

Once you have married in Sri Lanka, you may need your marriage certificate certified at the Foreign Ministry, Ministry of External Affairs in Colombo; only then will your marriage certificate be valid to submit to authorities outside of Sri Lanka.  This will be dependent on the hotel you stay at.

Translation of documents

All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public.  Occasionally the documentation will have to be sent to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for their approval before being sent back to the notary to sign.

Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples:

•        Born in the UK & have a valid UK passport (with some month’s validity on return home)

If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us.  Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own.

As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements.  We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them.
