Bahrain has been in the news for very glamorous reasons recently, as the Kingdom hosted its first-ever top-class and the biggest Destination Wedding of an Indian billionaire couple. The challenge of managing an exclusive wedding orchestrated to exact detail, with over 1,200 international guests was met by Dadabhai Travel.
“The lavish wedding of the bride Diya Mehta, daughter of Rosy Blue Chief Executive Mr. Russell Mehta (manufacturer of rough, polished diamonds and jewelry) and the groom Ayush Jatia, son of Hardcastle Restaurants Managing Director, Mr. Amit Jatia, (holder of the McDonalds franchise for India) was the first major step for Bahrain in line with the vision of the government to promote the Kingdom for Destination Weddings,” said Dadabhai Travel Managing Director, Mr. Aziz Gilitwala, “We are proud to have been instrumental in bringing this travel industry trend to Bahrain.”
Dadabhai Travel provided all of the on-ground support for the wedding and the company’s flawless handling of the complete on-ground logistics for well over 1,200 guests and crew from India, the US, the UK and mainland Europe across the three day event met with praise from the parents of the bride and groom. The travel specialist’s services included all ‘meet and greet’ and immigration clearance at the airport; airport – hotel transfers; all arrangements and assistance at the four hotels being used – The Four Seasons Hotel, The Ritz Carlton, The Elite Resort and Spa and The Royal Phoenicia Hotel; all ground transportation and services for the wedding, related events and personal sight-seeing; permissions and arrangements for the fireworks and concerts that were part of the event and co-ordinating with the over 250 wedding managers who have been working on the event for months.
As befitting a wedding of this standing, in addition to the families of the bride and groom, there were some pretty special guests that Dadabhai had to look after, including Bollywood actor Mr. Aamir Khan and his film-maker wife Kiran Rao; the Reliance Industries Limited Chairman and Managing Director Mr. Mukesh Ambani and his glamorous wife, Nita.
It may have been an extra-special glamorous event involving a large number of high-profile guests, including Bollywood celebrities and some of the wealthiest people in India, but for Dadabhai Travel, as one of the leading integrated travel groups in the GCC, it was business as usual – providing a top quality, solution driven service with confidence and integrity, that met and surpassed all customer requirements through its team of highly motivated employees, quality management systems and local award-winning partnerships.
“Bahrain’s got everything going to make it an ideal wedding destination,” said Mr. Gilitwala, “We have year-round sunshine, world-class hotels, global connectivity through our international airport, a strong infrastructure for cultural events and easy visa rules that make the Kingdom very accessible to all. Dadabhai Travel shall continue to make use of these advantages and we look forward to welcoming many more destination weddings to Bahrain’s shores.”
