Devi & Jeremy - 02 June 2012

Dear Adele and One&Only Team

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to all of you for making our days one of the best of our lives. You all went beyond to ensure that everything went on without a hitch and we could not have been more delighted.

Our guests and we were so impressed by all the attention to detail and everyone commented on the delicious food! (As I am sure you noticed plates were completely clean!).

Please extend our deepest thanks to everyone involved directly (and indirectly, it honestly felt as though the entire One&Only team were on board to make this day happen).

Keep warm and kindest regards.

Devi and Jeremy

Charl & Charlotte - 26 May 2012

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making the most amazing day in any women’s life, MORE amazing. You bent over backwards to help us with everything and made us feel so at ease. Prompt responses to emails, and also being just as excited as I was about the wedding.

On our wedding day – wow, where do I begin – It felt like I had my own guardian angel. How One&Only worked in a team, used initiative and went that extra 10miles to make the day run smoothly.

To use examples:
You phoned me while I was up in my room to regularly inform me how many guests are there. As soon as all guests were there, you came to fetch me, golf carts that took me to the reception, decorating our wedding cake (which is not even included in our package), setting up of the venue. When guests threw our confetti on the wrong time, which caused our photographer to miss that shot, you arranged for One&Only employees to through us with confetti again, just so the photographer can get that shot! I can not tell you how much all of this meant to us.

At the wedding I remember thinking, this day is MUCH better than I EVER dreamt of. How I thought this day was going to be, exceeded my expectations COMPLETELY!

Adele and everyone at One&Only, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. No other wedding venue can ever compete, you are in a league of your own.

Kindest regards

Charl & Charlotte

Dominique & Tom Nash - 17 February 2012

“The Most Memorable Day of My Life”

This is a stunningly good hotel in all categories. My wife and I had our wedding reception here and it was simply wonderful.

I think their secret is very friendly and helpful staff who take a real pride in working hard to provide such an excellent service. The place is spotless and the venues within the hotel are very dramatic. Our reception drinks on the man-made island Isola provided our guests with a tropical feel, before we made our way to the newly refurbished Ballroom which was presented beautifully. The in-house caterers did their job fantastically, producing some incredible dishes, including a dramatic smoking sorbet dish.

Special mention must be made of Adele Bennett, the Wedding Planner who is ably assisted by Nikki and Madre. Adele is a true force of nature who mixes superb customer service with a steely determination to get results - you get the feeling that the big day is just as important for her as it is for you! Staying at the hotel was a wonderful treat and we can't wait to go back.
