This is one of two very special posts for me. I am truly delighted to feature La Mandala Beach on the pages of my blog and cannot recommend it enough: be it a wedding reception, a rehearsal dinner, a birthday party or a corporate event – La Mandala will not leave anyone indifferent or under-impressed. If you – like me – are looking for a perfect waterfront venue for a unique event, you might as well end your search right here.
La Mandala Beach is one of the few places on the French Riviera that truly has it all: the venue defines romance, glamour, chic, luxury and ultimate elegance. Located in the heart of the famous Boulevard de La Croisette in Cannes, La Mandala is all you can dream of when planning either wedding or a seafront rehearsal dinner with stunning panoramic views over the glittering Bay of Cannes.
The beach can be fully privatized all year round (except for the nights when the Cannes fireworks competition is held) for your exclusive use providing for a secure setting amid the hustle and bustle of the sleepless city. Privatization in this case is an additional bonus as very few beaches along the Croisette Boulevard offer their premises for exclusive use during the high season months.
La Mandala comprises a refined bar located at the entrance, a large wooden decked terrace – the restaurant and, of course, a magnificent sandy beach. During summer months and weather permitting, the wedding dinner can be arranged right on the beach, with tables and chairs places either right on the sand or on special coconut rugs for more comfort.
The venue’s fine cuisine deserves special attention. Mandala is proud to have Jean-Pierre Caula as Chef & commander of its restaurant. Unlike many beaches in Cannes, offering quite an average food for not average prices, Mandala offers its guests a real gourmet experience serving locally sourced food, fish and seafood delivered fresh every day right to your table. And I’m not just making publicity here (even though the place does deserve it) – I had a chance to dine at the Mandala’s restaurant on several occasions and every time was really impressed with the quality and taste of food, regardless of the meal chosen (oh God, their salmon tartar and grilled sole are simply devilishly tasty!).
For weddings and events the beach offers a very competitive package starting at 85€ pp, which includes full privatization of the venue, service of a hostess, a welcome cocktail, a three-course meal and wine (one bottle per three people). Considering the fact that La Mandala is located in the center of one of Europe’s most expensive cities, this a darn good value for money. Budget permitting, you can go a bit further and order an additional décor, some great lighting solutions, and lounge furniture from the venue’s preferred supplier JD Deco.
La Mandala is also a fantastic choice for the day-after brunch granting you and your guests a chance to relax and spend an amazing day by the sea after some intense partying. With the only sound being the lapping of the waves, this will be a perfect finale of the time spent in this great region.
Did I mention that La Mandala is the place I chose to hold my rehearsal dinner? 😉 I mean, come on, this should mean something, doesn’t it?
Please contact me to enquire about any aspect of your wedding in Cote d’Azur. If you wish to organize your special day in La Mandala Beach, I can arrange a visit to check the availability for your desired dates and negotiate the best rates for your wedding package.
If you decide to get in touch with the venue’s administration directly, please mention that you found the venue on my blog. By doing so you will help me make Milknhoney Wedding recognizable and spread the word about my wedding planning activities 🙂
