Castara Retreats

Weddings – Tobago holiday accommodation

Castara Retreats is the idyllic location for an authentic Caribbean destination wedding. Situated overlooking beautiful Castara Bay, backed by the rainforest, and framed by mango trees Castara Retreats offers the perfect backdrop for your special day. Our style is simple and focused on fulfilling your vision for the day. We can:

  • Offer personalised wedding packages to suit your interests and budget
  • Work with you to plan wedding ceremonies held up at Castara Retreats or on Castara Beach
  • Organise a minister to hold the ceremony and provide witnesses (where needed)
  • Provide beautiful reception with a range of food options from a three-course meal, to a delicious buffet, overlooking stunning Castara Bay.

Before your arrival, Lorna will work with you to plan your perfect day, and once you have arrived in Tobago, our local managers Porridge and Jeanell will make all the arrangements for you, and ensure that everything runs smoothly and you have a happy day.

Castara Retreats can sleep up to 36 people, and if you have visiting day guests we can offer receptions for larger groups of up to 46. We can also offer wedding packages for those looking to use Castara Retreats as a location for their wedding for the day only.

Organising the Legalities:

To get married in Tobago you need:

  1. Your passport for the tax office visit
  2. Your birth certificate
  3. Your divorce papers (if appropriate)
  4. To be resident in Tobago for three days before the ceremony. Please note this does not include your arrival day or the day you get married. The registry office is closed on weekends and holidays
