Amante Beach Restaurant Wedding Venue Ibiza

Situated just a couple of minutes down the road from Cala Llonga, Amante is set in the cliff above the quiet beach of Sol d’en Serra.

You can follow signs from Cala Llonga to the restaurant and when you arrive, there is a large gravel carpark at the front of the venue (this is typical for rural locations in Ibiza).

From the carpark, there are wide, long, gravel stairs that lead you down to the venue and if you keep going down, all the way to the beach.

Sol d’en Serra beach is a public beach, like all beaches on Ibiza, but because it is quite rocky and narrow (only 5m between the cliff and the sea) it tends to be more of a quiet retreat for adults to unwind rather than a beach for families.

As you arrive at Amante and go through the doors, you will turn to the right and be completely blown away by the most incredible view of the sea that you have ever seen.

It is literally overwhelmingly gorgeous!

Amante is open to the public from 11am to 2pm every single day from May to October and because it has built such an incredible reputation, it is usually packed out for lunch and dinner service every day.

As a result, the owners have limited the number of weddings held at Amante to 10 a year.

They have to literally shut down Amante for your wedding and it is a super exclusive and prestigious place to have a wedding.

If you are looking for a unique, incredible, one-of a kind, bespoke, draw-dropping venue for your wedding then this is definitely it!

Weddings can take place in May, June, September and October and on any day Monday – Saturday.

The venue will only hold 1 wedding a week because of the attention to detail and their commitment to making your wedding absolutely incredible.

At the time of writing this article (August 2018) there are only 3 spaces for weddings remaining in 2019 and October 2019 is already fully booked.

Summary of Amante Beach Wedding Venue

Amante is a restaurant in Ibiza set in the cliffs above Sol d’en Serra beach.

The venue is on three levels – you enter at the top and make your way down the cliff as you move through the venue.

The top level is the only indoor area of Amante and even though it is inside, the sea facing wall is made of large wall to ceiling glass sliding doors that offer the same view open or shut.

It really gives the sense of being outside, even when the doors are closed!

The indoor area has lovely luxury bohemian sofa and chair seating with low tables and you can imagine sitting here for a nice expresso or brunch and catching up with friends.

For weddings, this area is cleared and it becomes the indoor dancing space for your evening party.

The indoor space also has amazing air conditioning which means that you will actually be able to enjoy dancing in the evening.

To get down to the middle level, you have to descend down a narrow, wooden staircase.

The middle level is such a cool space and it features an outside bar and a little stage.

The outside bar has barstools that you can sit on and enjoy looking out to sea whilst sipping a cocktail and the stage is perfect for some live music from an Ibiza wedding pianist or similar.

The lower level is the beach terrace.

To get down to the beach terrace, there are some more steps and this is where the main restaurant service takes place.

Tables and sun loungers are laid out along the beach terrace and the floor has a sandy vibe which makes your feel as if you are on the beach – but without the mess!!

For weddings, this is where the ceremony and meal take place.

IMPORTANT: Amante is NOT accessible to wheelchairs. There are steps to get between each of the three levels and this is due to the nature of the cliffside venue.

Weddings at Amante Beach Restaurant Venue in Ibiza

The wedding planner at Amante is Natalia and she is such a kind and welcoming person who knows exactly how to get the best out of weddings at this luxury venue.

Weddings include everything that you need for a great day – the tableware, table linen, chairs, food, drinks, etc.

On top of this you will need to hire your celebrant (to host your wedding ceremony), your music and entertainment and your photographer.

The standard wedding package at Amante is for 8 hours and usually runs from 5pm to 1am.

It is possible to pay to extend your package so that it runs until 2am.

The minimum spend for a wedding is based on 60 guests and the maximum capacity for weddings is 130 guests.

Wedding Ceremony at Amante

At Amante, the wedding ceremony starts at 5pm and takes place on the lower level – the beach terrace.

An aisle is created by the tables that are set up ready for the meal and places either side of the beach terrace to form a walkway (see photo at top of page).

Chairs are then set up in a traditional ceremony style for the wedding ceremony and are side on to the sea.

The ceremony takes place under a pegoda at the end of the beach terrace.

If you choose to hire any live musicians to play for your wedding ceremony then they will set up on the small stage on the middle level and they can play from here for your ceremony, drinks reception and wedding meal.

You might be interested to know that it is possible for Ibiza wedding pianist James to get his white grand piano shell down the steep stairs and onto the small stage.

This looks and sounds amazing!

Wedding Reception at Amante Beach Restaurant Wedding Venue in Ibiza

After your wedding ceremony, you will move up to the middle level of the venue to enjoy the beach bar and the chilled out drinks reception vibe with bar stools and bean bags.

This is a great opportunity for photos and to enjoy a cool and refreshing drink after sitting in the sun for the wedding ceremony.

The drinks reception usually lasts for 90minutes.

During this time, the team at the venue will move the tables and chairs and set up the beach terrace ready for the main wedding meal.

Dinner will take approximately 2 hours and the service is absolutely beautiful.

During the meal, you will get silver service and it will feel luxurious and special.

Towards the end of the meal you will get to enjoy the sun set and as darkness falls, the venue will turn on the stunning lighting.

They have invested in lights that light up the restaurant, the trees and the surrounding cliffs so that the whole bay transforms into a magical setting with beautiful lights.

It is even possible to get your names projected onto the cliffs in lights!

Dancing and Party at Amante Wedding Venue Ibiza

After dinner, guests are invited to return back to the first floor of the venue, the inside areas, for the first dance.

The DJ sets up inside near the entrance and the furniture is cleared to create a dance floor alongside the glass sliding doors.

This creates the feel of being outside but with the advantages of having a fully air conditioned room for dancing.

Amante provides the sound system for weddings and you are welcome to choose your own Ibiza wedding DJ to play for your wedding.

Your wedding will finish at 1am or 2am (depending on the package that you have booked) and you will need to make sure that your guests have arranged transport at the end of the night back to their hotels.
