Monterey Wedding Venue
1 Old Golf Course Road
Monterey, California 93940-4908
Walking past the fountain entryway into the Hyatt Regency Monterey’s Fireplace Lounge, you instantly feel yourself relaxing amid the resort’s sophisticated comforts, natural materials and soothing earth tones. Take it from us, the skylit Lounge is an inviting spot to while away a pleasant hour, quaffing a local vintage from their wine cellar along with tasty appetizers by their acclaimed farm-to-table bistro, TusCA Ristorante.
While the innovative food and drink are delicious, the resort boasts a bounty of recreational activities, like their full-service Racquet Club, 2000-square-foot Fitness Center and neighboring Del Monte Golf Course. Two sparkling pools surrounded by gardens beckon swimmers and sunbathers alike. Rent a bicycle to tour the scenic grounds, or take the trails that skirt the nearby bay up to historic Cannery Row. (The hotel’s Les Clefs d’Or Concierge can arrange everything from Aquarium tickets to wine tasting.)
With so much to entice and entertain, you don’t need an excuse to visit this resort. But if you’ve come to celebrate a special occasion, then you’ll be delighted by the expert service and range of venue options.
The Regency Grand Ballroom, the largest in the county, can host a gala dinner for 800 and still have plenty of room for dancing. Soft teal blue-and-beige décor reflect Monterey’s serene coastal palette; high ceilings with inset lighting bays and a bank of windows provide gentle illumination. The adjoining foyer opens to a terrace with a retractable awning, perfect for an indoor/outdoor social hour. Though not quite as large, the Monterey Grand Ballroom still holds up to 600 guests. While the Regency takes its inspiration from the sea and sky, the Monterey recalls the region’s mountains and meadows: Rustic hues are enlivened with a sunny yellow reminiscent of springtime daffodils. An adjacent patio increases your staging possibilities.
Open-air receptions are sometimes celebrated on the Garden Terrace, which can also be tented. The bridal party and guests reserve the rooms overlooking this courtyard, and this clear-sided pavilion becomes your own party central.
Your nearest and dearest will thank you for their mini-vacation, which includes plush, contemporary accommodations. Newlyweds receive a complimentary suite for their wedding night, but for the ultimate indulgence splurge on a Villa, a four-bedroom oasis with its own private lanai and swimming pool! This secluded hideaway can host your rehearsal dinner or cocktail party in high style.
One more awesome amenity: While at some hotels the spa seems like an afterthought, this Hyatt’s new Marilyn Monroe Spa knows just what women want. In addition to relaxing massages, brides and their entourages receive movie-star treatment in the “Glamour Room,” which offers Marilyn-inspired makeup and hair styling. Meanwhile the groom and his pals unwind at the award-winning Knuckles Sports Bar, where brews, billiards and bro-time can be enjoyed until the wee hours.
From arrival straight on through to Farewell Brunch, your destination wedding weekend at this luxurious resort is an inspired way to savor a memorable Monterey experience.
