Mount Hartman Bay Estate, nestled on the Caribbean island of Grenada, has been featured in Harper’s, Conde Naste Traveler, Vogue and a host of other big-name titles. All for good reason: the estate boasts world-renowned views, one-of-a-kind architecture and unparalleled service. It also makes for an unforgettable wedding venue, whether you reside in Grenada, or are planning a dream destination wedding in an exotic locale.
Perhaps the most stunning feature of Mount Hartman is the architecture. Completed in 2004, the estate’s design mixes traditional and modern, organic and futuristic; think Gollum meets Gaudi. Emerging seamlessly from the hillside, exaggerated, curved walls and archways mix with natural, lawn-covered roofs to create an exotic haven. All the while, this charming property maintains an air of elegance, sophistication and luxury.
Comprised of two distinct lodging residences, the estate is the perfect location for wedding guests to stay and play for a long weekend. The Cave House blends into the hillside, creating a natural environment that offers seven double bedrooms, plus a Lovenest secreted within the Folly, a stone-clad tower that rises from the midst of the estate’s infinity pool and features a Romeo and Juliet-style balcony from which a waterfall cascades to the pool below. A la Cinderella, The Lovenest is accessible by an all-glass staircase shrouding newlyweds in romance, and offers panoramic views of the surrounding tropics.
The second and newest residence, added to the property in 2006 is the Beach House, situated on the estate’s private beach. Constructed with a rustic thatch roof, the Beach House features four bedrooms and an expansive veranda. Between The Cave House and the Beach House, Mount Hartman Bay Estate can accommodate up to 22 overnight guests and as many as 100 visitors for day-of festivities.
An exclusive, top-of-the-line estate, Mount Hartman plays host to only two to three weddings annually, which means couples and guests receive lavish treatment and one-on-one attention. Every aspect of the wedding is custom-tailored to meet each couple’s wishes, including the cake, officiant, floral arrangements, catering, wedding arch and more.
If the full-service approach isn’t enough to sell you, the breathtaking backdrops will surely do the trick. The property is located on a private promontory overlooking a quiet bay and nature reserve, and offers an array of locations to hold ceremonies and receptions. Some couples opt to say their vows on the jetty, which extends from the beach, while others choose the striking rooftop lawn of the Cave House. The Beach House veranda and the Cave House’s drawing room (which features a dramatic dining table that seats 22) accommodate receptions for all styles and themes.
All of the amenities and services at Mount Hartman are generous, to say the least, from the oversized bedrooms to the go-with-the-flow staff that is willing to accommodate just about any request made on a whim. And don’t forget about each guest room’s state-of-the-art technology, the expansive beach, automated poolside misters and indoor waterfalls. It’s enough to convince anyone that their dreams of a fairytale wedding are about to come true.
