Plan your wedding away from the stress of daily life and cold northern winters, and offer your guests vacation as they celebrate one of the most important days of your life with you! Moulin Sur Mer beach resort is located on the Côte des Arcadins, north of Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. It is located on a historic colonial property whose owners are determined to honor Haiti’s rich history by housing a restored and maintained sugar refinery on the grounds.
Moulin Sur Mer is an ideal location for a Haiti destination wedding. It offers no fewer than nine idyllic and picture-perfect settings for the ultimate beach wedding. When you choose Moulin Sur Mer, you can opt for an intimate affair with as few as 15 of your closest friends and family members or a big “do” with as many as 500 guests.
You can even pick your own private island, Zile Soley, which offers some of the most beautiful sunsets along the Côte des Arcadins or the Captain’s Pagoda for smaller, more intimate events. You and your guests will be floored by the various hues of blue surrounding your “I dos”.
Immerse yourself in Haiti’s rich culture and history by holding your ceremony in the historical Ogier-Fombrun Museum, which is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the successful slave uprising that resulted in the world’s first Black republic in 1804. The museum’s chapel and the surrounding grounds provide an unforgettable backdrop to your once-in-a-lifetime event! Your guests will be sure to enjoy the mouthwatering Haitian cuisine prepared especially for you and your guests.
Moulin Sur Mer offers you a unique wedding venue rich in Haitian history and culture that is sure to provide you and your loved ones with memories you will cherish for a lifetime.
But weddings are just the start. Why not commemorate the day you said your “I dos” by celebrating your wedding anniversary or renewing your vows at Moulin Sur Mer? How about an intimate dinner by the sea? Or bring the whole family for a trip that will linger in their memories for years to come?
The resort has activities for all ages to enjoy. They offer water sports such as kayaking, standup paddleboarding, jet-skiing or snorkeling. What with beach volleyball, the mini-golf, tennis and basketball courts, no one could complain of boredom. Take a fun boat excursion with Marina Blue, their in-house Marina, which offers several tours of nearby hidden gems ¬– such as Anse à Pirogue, Anse à Galets, and many more hidden coves ¬– along the Côte des Arcadins, which the boat captains of Marina Blue know like the backs of their hands.
For the more adventurous, consider booking a scuba-diving trip, as Marina Blue is a PADI-certified destination.
If you get tired of water sports, there are also 4×4 rentals that enable you to go off-roading and explore the rugged terrain around the Côte des Arcadins, where you can discover the watercress farms at Kay Piat, the Chemins de Montrouis, and many more exciting locations!
Moulin Sur Mer is also the ideal place to book a bachelorette party with yoga retreats with the world-renowned yogi and artist, Ama Makeda. There’s no better way to bond with your bridal party than by aligning your chakras with some Vitamin Sea! These yoga retreats also offer guidance from a nutritionist, spa time with a masseuse, and an acupuncture specialist. You and your bridal party will feel at one with the universe and each other as you are rejuvenated by connecting with the earth. Listen to waves crashing around you as you perform your sun salutations while facing the morning sun, and enjoy the kinds of sunsets you see in postcards.
Sur Mer Beach resort offers a wide array of entertainment, making it one of the best places to plan all things wedding! You’ll leave with amazing memories to share with your friends back home – and when they ask, you can tell them “Yes, this is Haiti!”
