Had our wedding on Wednesday at lazaat and whee do I even begin.Sent on 09/07/2021
Firstly we got a great value package so cannot complain about that. It even included the DJ.
We was going through uncertainty about our wedding due to covid 19. Not once did our venue contact us to reassure or speak to us. I wrote an email stating our concerns 3 weeks later no reply. Every time you ring you get ‘I’ll get someone to call you back’ they never do. In the end I chased and chased and Simon reluctantly rang me and without even listening to me said ‘I wouldn’t even bother worrying’ obviously my feelings and concerns where not important at that point so fair enough. Anyways no communication at all felt so in the dark and in limbo all the time. On the day I 5/6 times I said ‘but Simon said this was okay etc’ in which my reply I got was ‘Simon says alot’ so I had been massively mislead.
So the Tuesday before my wedding on the Wednesday I walked out of work excited at 5:30pm heading straight to lazaat. I pick my phone up and I have missed calls off all my guests.
Lazaats systems had gone down (not their fault I know) and everyone on of my guests rooms had been cancelled as they didn’t have a paper copy of booked names. When my guests tried to rebook they where saying they where fully booked. After a stress and a few tears I finally got it sorted. Two of my guests turned up and they couldn’t sort that didn’t apologise and left them stood there alone (I had no idea at this point) 50 miles away from home with no where to stay at night.
We went for breakfast the next day me and my two bridesmaids and he said he only had two on the list so that was a faf at 7:30am the morning I got married and the waiter wouldn’t leave the end of our table talking making us feel awkward while we was trying to eat. He was very friendly though.
They knew there was three of us in the room but had only stocked it with all the bits for two so they first half hour of arriving was gathering more supplies.
I met my wedding coordinator Paul when he finally come to my room 30 minutes before the ceremony I felt like I was more of a bother to him. You could see he didn’t really want to be there and even my guests picked up on it. They set the top table for 4 when it was for 5 and it took me to tell two people to get it sorted.
The meal was lovely. Fish cake was delicious so hats off to the chef. Plates cleared away quickly etc.
Speeches came and Paul insisted on introducing each person but kept going to the back of the room so we had to awkwardly sit there while he kept going backwards and forwards.
The DJ arrived. He was very shirty when I asked him to lighten the mood as he was playing quite low mood music. He was booked and paid for till 1am.
My mother was leaving at 12 so I asked the DJ to play our last dance so she could hear it but informed him the rest was staying. He played the song but then packed up and left. My guests pulled him up on it and he refused to continue stating he had done the last dance song now. Leaving me and my guests in silence so I had to go upstairs and get my speaker.
My guests asked the bar at 11:30 what time they closed. They said last orders 12:30 perfect. However when we all went up for a round at 12:04 we was informed the bar had shut.
The bar was extremely expensive. And had quite little choice but the beer was good.
Overall it was an awful experience. Lazaats caused quite a few tears on the run up to the day and on the actual day. Please don’t let them ruin your special day like they did mine.

The evening party was good. But we only had 2 people on .in our suite and sometimes we had to find members of bar staff to serve as they was another wedding in the monsoon suite.... I would do it all over again so would my husband we had an amazing time. Even helped accomodate us to another
room. when the door handle had fallen off. Our 2nd room wasnt that all. Compared to the 1st room as it was much smaller. Ans in another building.
Our stay was lovely. And the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was amazing so much choice even the kids enjoyed the range of choices they had.
