Dreamy wedding

This place is an absolute paradise. Our wedding was very special, this place has a beautiful energy, that is very hard to explain. The pre-wedding bonding experience led by cacao ceremonialist was absolutely unforgettable. The whole weekend was simply very special filled with great vibes and pure bliss. Staff is very helpful, kind and friendly.

Elopement at Oya

My (now!) husband and I got married at Oya recently, and we're still floating from the experience! We booked our stay to just have a little getaway, when last minute we decided we wanted to not only vacation at Oya, but elope at Oya. When I shared my idea with the manager Randy, (2 weeks before our trip!!), to my surprise he was enthusiastic about the idea and ready to make our vision happen for us. Not only did we adore our stay at Oya, from the delicious but healthy food, to the minimal yet warm ambience and incredibly friendly staff and insane views - but our wedding was more than we could have ever dreamt of. Our "wedding squad" (you know who you are!) created the most immaculate vibes which allowed for Gio and I to connect deeply to ourselves prior to the ceremony, and connect even deeper once we were together. To say it was the happiest day of our lives is a major understatement, and we can't wait to return for future stays. If you are looking for a truly unique wedding experience that you and your partner will remember forever - Oya is the place for you!
