If your usual keyword search include “COVID-19 safe, private beach resort, and full-service”, then we know exactly where to lead you today! Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort, the newest luxury beach resort in Davao region, is your top pick. Here are tips to help you decide.

How to Choose a Venue for Your Destination Wedding in the Era of COVID-19

1. Choose a venue that’s all-in-one

Since mingling with other people is a luxury in itself, you’ll want to keep your wedding list controlled and the wedding venue private. Especially when planning a destination wedding, it’s ideal to choose a location that already has all the venues you need in one place: a ceremony venue, a reception venue, and a lodging venue. This will keep you and your guests safe and comfortable all throughout the celebration.

Ceremony Venue
If you’re planning for a Catholic wedding, you know the struggle of finding a Church where you can wed when planning your destination wedding. The usual scenario is you fall in love with a reception venue but there’s not one Church in sight! This is not the case with Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort. It’s the only resort in the region that has its own chapel which is recognised by the Tagum Parish. Plus, it’s only minutes away from the beach so no traffic and no hassle!


Reception Venue
Are you more of an indoor couple or do you prefer to celebrate by the beach? Good that you have options in this resort. With floor to ceiling glass windows, you can dress up the Tamsi Hall any way you like. Natural light shines through the venue during the day and a view of the night sky is an instant romantic sight if you prefer to celebrate at night. If you prefer partying by the shore, an outdoor celebration can be prepared for you, too!


Lodging Venue
What is a destination wedding without a gorgeous pool and a relaxing sleep? You and your guests travelled from far and wide and the best treat you can give is a weekend of fun and luxury. Imagine waking up to this!


2. Let nature do the convincing

There’s something very relaxing and calming about being close to nature especially after months of being stuck at home. So, consider a destination wedding venue where you can bury your feet on fine white sand and breathe in fresh air while marvelling at the unparalleled view of the azure waters of Davao Gulf.

Set within a former coconut plantation and surrounded by unspoiled reef, the resort offers an exotic getaway amidst nature. Patterned after the award-winning Dusit Thani Maldives on Mudhdhoo Island, Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort will give you an unmatched experience on your wedding day.


3. Make sure extraordinary precautions are in place

Safety should be top priority especially when doing a destination wedding during the pandemic. The venue you choose should be strict in their rules for you and your guests’ peace of mind.

Here are the precautions implemented by Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort.


4. Go for luxury and comfort

Choose a venue that will make you feel comfortable. With the million things you have in mind, it’s definitely a plus if your destination venue can handle all your requests with ease and promptness. This is an advantage when you choose a luxurious and service-centered resort like Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort.

Easily accessible from Davao City, you have different transportation options. You can either take a Catamaran from Dusit Davao Jetty which is approximately 40 minutes away or you can travel via a luxury coach and boat through the Dusit Pindasan Jetty which is approximately a 90-minute travel time.


5. Put all your worries at ease and enjoy the moment!
