Villa Norbu is a mansion wedding venue located in St Thomas, Virgin Islands.

In an exotic paradise location, it provides magnificent views to match the exhilarating feeling you will have as destination newlyweds.
Facilities and Capacity
At Villa Norbu, there are a variety of different event spaces for you and your guests to make use of. The venue would best suit intimate celebrations with 75 or fewer people. The design of the whole place is as beautiful as the scenery - featuring tropical-inspired wooden decor, locally quarried stone, and charming brickwork. No matter what part of this venue you drift towards, you are greeted by luxury, elegance, and a relaxing ambiance embellished by coconut palms and lime trees.
Have your ceremony on one of the palm-covered outdoor deck areas where dark wood contrasts splendidly with the clear sky overhead. Here, you can be joined in matrimony with the sound of the ocean and the applause of your guests as your soundtrack. With floral petals scattered as your aisle and your close friends and family seated on gold chiavari-style chairs, everyone can enjoy the scene.
For an alternative ceremony, make your way to the crescent-shape outdoor space that is dominated by colorful stonework. Here, with the sun shining, you can say your vows and exchange rings with five nearby islands as your backdrop. There is also room here for some guests to sit.
For the all-important butlered reception, everyone can dine in the evening as you settle in to savor the venue’s inspiring menu as a luminous pink sunset casts a romantic glow on the scene.
Villa Norbu provides a variety of convenient features which add to the venue’s remarkable charm. As part of their Ocean Dreams starter package, couples receive unlimited consultation, happy couple wedding car, wedding coordinator, licensed officiant, flowers, a photographer, and more. Couples can opt to add extra seating, a personalized cake, entertainment, and so much more - because Villa Norbu works with a number of preferred vendors.
At Villa Norbu’s Epicure Bites & Bar, a variety of options can be provided. These can include combinations such as black angus shell tortillas with beer, beet salad with prosecco bellinis, or barbecue pork ribs and brewery beers.

Full service venue run by incredible people
How can we give more than 5 stars? We cannot thank Alain, Soolan and their entire team at Norbu enough for making our dream wedding a reality. I (the bride) grew up in the VI but now live in NY, and chose not to hire a wedding planner. My parents who still live there helped, but Alain and Soolan went above and beyond assisting us, providing advice and recommendations, and planning with us for months in advance. There was no request they did not their hardest to accommodate. Alain made introductions to multiple other vendors, including the taxi service that was critical to getting all our guests to the wedding, but also ended up helping us on multiple days. He introed us to an incredible day of coordinator who jumped in full force working with everyone at Norbu to carry our vision to the finish line so we could fully enjoy our day. It goes without saying that the Norbu property is beyond beautiful, providing varying spaces all in one location. For anyone like myself who didn’t want your standard beach wedding but has a large group to move around, it is the perfect scenario. They provide all the necessary items for setup, wait staff and then some. Everything their exclusive chef made was delicious and beautiful, and generously portioned. Between what Norbu offers and the vendor connections they make, it really is a full service wedding venue. I could go on and on about every little thing they did to help us, but I hope what I have here demonstrates how they go above and beyond. These are people who take great pride in putting on a beautiful, flawless event, meticulously paying attention to every little detail, and even more so they are genuinely kind, generous, patient people. We feel so lucky to have partnered with them for our special day - it was the best choice we could have made and we wish we could live it all over again already.Sent on 06/07/2019

Wedding and brunch at Villa Norbu
We had a ceremony scheduled at Villa Norbu, and, just four days prior to the event, we lost our venue for the reception. Villa Norbu was able to step in and do a fabulous brunch for our group on extremely short notice with wonderful decor, food and service. I would definitely recommend Villa Norbu with it's spectacular location, gardens, and wonderful service to anyone looking to have a truly special event.Sent on 06/08/2019
Villa Norbu's reply:Thank you for trusting us, Mary Kay! Your group was lovely. It was our pleasure to host their ceremony & brunch.
