Just Marry! Weddings at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort
June 17, 2011 by Just Marry!
We have the great fortune of working with some of the most amazing resorts in the world. Sometimes, I think that we take for granted their beauty and their special features. Because of that, we decided to revisit some of our partner properties and find out what their staff thinks are their extraordinary features. Today, we spoke with Nicole Belmonte from Loews Royal Pacific Resort.
Just Marry!: What do you think Loews Royal Pacific Resort’s best kept secret is?
Nicole: People don’t realize how “South Pacific” we are. We aren’t a cheesy cartoon of a Hawaiian resort; we are an actual South Pacific-style resort right in the middle of Central Florida. The atmosphere is calm and serene and transports you to the South Seas, right in the middle of one of Central Florida’s hottest theme park complexes.
Just Marry!: What is your favorite feature in the eyes of brides?
Nicole: They love the Wantilan Pavilion. It is incredible and one of a kind! It’s lush, but not too overdone. It’s a gorgeous outdoor reception area with a fire pit, welcome thatch hut and tiki torches and it’s fully equipped for even the most elaborate receptions.
Just Marry!: What is your best food item?
Nicole: The Luau menu is incredible. It is filled with interactive stations, but the food isn’t fussy. It falls perfectly in that relaxed feeling of the resort and has something that will appeal to everyone.Just Marry!: Tell us about a feature that is exclusive to Loews Royal Pacific Resort.
Nicole: A special feature of all three Loews hotels here in Orlando is early admission to Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Also, if guests stay at one of the hotels, they get a front of the line access pass, which takes them to the front of the lines in the parks. Also, couples can purchase discount party passes to City Walk from us. I think that the bride and groom really love the fact that the party doesn’t have to end when the reception is over. The group can walk or take one of our water taxis over to City Walk and party until 2:00 a.m.
Just Marry!: Tell us something extraordinary that you have seen a Loews Royal Pacific Resort Employee do.
Nicole: Just this morning I was walking out near the valet. A little boy and his mom were heading to their car. The valet called after the boy and said, “David, have a great day today.” David was absolutely wide-eyed that the valet knew his name. His mom had a huge smile on her face. I think that you can expect that personal attention here. We remember your names, and we remember your preferences. Everyone here wants to make you feel welcome and ensure that you have a memorable experience during your stay.
All of us on the Just Marry! team love Loews Royal Pacific Resort. The surroundings really do make you feel as though you are in a Four Diamond (a designation that the resort proudly maintains) Resort in the South Pacific. If you like tropical breezes and natural elegance, this is a ceremony and reception location you must consider!
