San Martin Akuna Bay

Are you looking to create the vibe of a destination wedding while staying close to Sydney? If so, then San Martin certainly needs to be on your list of venues to check out for your big day. They can accommodate up to 180 people for a seated meal or 250 for a cocktail-style reception. However, you don’t need to worry if your mother-in-law adds to your guest numbers as the mezzanine and balcony areas can be added, allowing for up to sixty more guests.

Wedding packages start at $130 per person, including a 3-course meal, four-hour beverage package, cake cutting, and venue hire. If you splurge on their Royal Package, then they will transport your guests to and from the venue included in the price.
