The most awaited new opening for 2020 in Puglia, Paragon 700 Luxury Hotel & Spa, offers couples the chance to get married in the ultimate style with exclusive takeovers of the elegantly restored red palace in the heart of Ostuni.
Brides and grooms-to-be will opt for an exclusive wedding in the charming garden of the hotel, surrounded by the smell of orange trees in the nearby orchard. Other choices include the magnificent Ostuni Cathedral with its baroque architecture or the St Francesco di Assisi Church, both situated in the historic centre of the White City, accompanied by a post-wedding reception at the hotel.
With only 11 individually built rooms and suites, Paragon 700 is perfect for couples looking for an intimate wedding with the nearest and dearest in the most idyllic setting. Standing in stark contrast to the town’s whitewashed houses, the former palace’s red brick façade cocoons an unusual, rich garden and swimming pool, offering happy couples and their guests a private and peaceful oasis just a five-minute walk from Ostuni’s main square. Inside, the quintessentially Puglian property was infused with a cool contemporary flair with trendy interiors by ID Living-Pascale PL’s Lauber, which exudes elegance and sophistication. Love birds will escape to their own exclusive Paragon Suite, featuring seven-metre-high cathedral ceilings, a romantic sunken bathtub and a huge open fireplace with two doors leading to a large terrace with a garden.
On the wedding day itself, enjoy a gourmet meal featuring excellent local ingredients. Enjoy your wedding breakfast of dreams with exquisite local vintages from the hotel’s impressive wine cellar. As the evening approaches, guests will head to the hotel’s eclectic Bar 700 to enjoy inventive drinks late into the night. The next day, soothing and restorative treatments await you at the Paragon Spa located seven metres underground in the palace’s former water chamber or the newlyweds can continue the festivities with a trip to the hotel’s associated beach club, P-Beach or a bespoke trip to Paragon 700’s private cruise, Dragonfly. Wedding party events include wine and olive oil tastings, cooking classes and local excursions, all of which can be arranged at an extra cost.
Exclusive buyouts start from €10,000 for two nights with a minimum F&B spend from €3,000 in low season. For more information visit www.paragon700.com/
