A Fairmont Platinum Honeymoon: Our Wedding Gift to You

Platinum Honeymoon Program Offers Savings and Personalized Services For Your Special Day and Beyond

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2008) - For over a century, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts have been host to unforgettable weddings in some of the world's most sought after destinations. To encourage couples to continue the first steps of their new life together with Fairmont, the Platinum Honeymoon program has been introduced. Offered to couples who book their wedding at Fairmont, the Platinum Honeymoon program includes the services of a dedicated Platinum Concierge to assist in perfecting the details of their honeymoon, as well as a credit towards a honeymoon at any one of Fairmont's global locations, which include romantic beach resorts, adventurous safari options or glamorous city getaways.

As an enticement to consider a Fairmont location for the all-important honeymoon, newlyweds who book both their wedding and honeymoon with Fairmont will receive up to a 5% credit(i), based on the total cost of the wedding event. Once the honeymoon of three nights or more is booked, the credit is provided on a Fairmont gift card, which can be used towards their accommodation or for romantic options such as candlelit dinners, couples massages or any other Fairmont activities which will help set the mood.

Couples familiar with Fairmont's dedicated wedding experts, who take pride in delivering an affair to remember, will be pleased to know they'll receive the same personal attention when planning their honeymoon. The Fairmont Platinum Concierges offer a unique "one stop shopping" approach to honeymoons - selecting venues, planning romantic dinners, booking tee and spa times or scuba diving expeditions - whatever it takes to create a memorable getaway. If candlelight dining on the beach is a must, say the word and the Platinum Concierge can arrange a rendezvous on the white sand beaches of the Fairmont Mayakoba. Or if a safari excursion in Kenya's wildlife sanctuary gets the blood flowing, the team can organize an exotic game trek at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. With so many destinations on offer, newlyweds may need the Platinum Honeymoon Survey to help narrow down the choices. Through a customized questionnaire, the bride and groom can note favorite activities, ideal vacation destinations, past vacation spots and specific properties they may be interested in visiting, and the Platinum Concierge takes care of the rest.

Fairmont's team of wedding professionals and the new Fairmont Platinum Honeymoon Program provide the thoughtful, personalized service that every couple needs to ensure that their big day and beyond go off without a hitch.

(i) Package is valid for new bookings only at participating Fairmont Hotels & Resorts locations and subject to availability. Package is based on standard banquet menu and guest room pricing, and cannot be combined with any other offer, promotion or discount. Both the wedding function space and the honeymoon stay are subject to availability. The honeymoon stay must be for 3 nights or more to be eligible for the program. The rebate is based on the total net banquet food, beverage and function room rental revenues (pre-tax and gratuities) and will be provided in the form of a Fairmont Hotels & Resorts gift card once the honeymoon reservation is confirmed with the Platinum Concierge and the wedding master account is paid in full. If redeemed at a hotel or resort where the local currency is other than the gift card's currency, the gift card terminal will apply an exchange rate.
