Where can I host my reception at InterContinental Hayman Island Resort?

Your guests will be in absolute awe when they first lay eyes on your wedding reception.

Or maybe you want your long table reception in the tropical yet completely luxurious Formal Gardens.

There are actually 15 outdoor and indoor venue options all up including private beaches, gardens, the iconic pools, private superyachts, and exclusive use of the restaurants and ballrooms, so the choice is yours.
