Loved working with Kasey! The venue was lovely and I couldn't be happier with the beach wedding pictures. <3
Kasey Bussel was absolutely amazing. She was extremely available to me for this destination wedding. All my questions were answered right away. She made the day go flawlessly for us! The catering managers were a delight to work with as well as the rest of the staff. Our food was incredible! There are so many locations to chose from for the ceremony and reception. We went with the Coconut Palm for the reception which I highly recommend. Our guests had an amazing time there!
We chose the Sirata for our beach wedding because of the beautiful beach and ballroom. Many of the beach venues we had seen did not stand up to our expectations within a price that we found reasonable. When we met with Kelli at our consultation appointment we fell in love! We loved her professionalism and tenacity and she helped us envision our wedding at the Sirata. The planning process is innately stressful, but I was a little disappointed that correspondence was slightly difficult and it took longer than I would have liked to get answers to questions. My biggest drawback with our experience is when our final counts and payments were due and the invoice that I was given had a meal selection that we had never even discussed. It was not what we tried at our tasting and not what was on our original estimates. When we pointed this out, instead of apologizing for the mistake, it was made to seem like we were inconveniencing them by changing our minds last minute when this was what we had picked the whole time and they were the ones that made the mistake. Thankfully, we were working with a wedding planner that helped to correct the issues and make our day smooth and stress-free. Additionally, during the planning process we were tiold there would be no problem having a sparkler exit at the end of our reception, but then at the time when it was to happen, we were told that we couldn't have it. On the positive, the food was delicious and our wedding was beautiful. We unfortunately had thunderstorms the day of and the staff was willing to wait until the last minute before deciding to move our ceremony. Overall we were happy with our decision to have our wedding at the Sirata, we just wish a few things were different considering the amount of money we spent to make our day what we wanted it to be.
The Sirata def set the stage for my dream wedding! We had our reception held on the North Deck & it was absolutely beautiful with all of the lighting wrapped around the palm trees! Especially beautiful at sunset!! I worked with Amanda & she was great with everything! Highly recommend having any kind of special event here! The food was delicious! All of our guests were talking about it for days after!!
We had a destination wedding at the Sirata Beach Resort in December 2015 and planned the entire event long distance. We chose the Sirata based on the amazing reviews on the Knot, the price range, and the wonderful communication we had with Kasey Bussell from first contact through the entire process. It was our dream to have a beautiful beach wedding and that dream came true with the Sirata. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding day. Kasey Bussell was our wedding coordinator and worth her weight in gold. We can’t say enough about Kasey. She was a gem. Every time I had to email Kasey with a question she responded within a few hours. She provided advice on vendors, reception hall floor plans, meal option questions, and decorations. You name it she was able to help. She made sure final communications with vendors happened so that the timing and setup happened flawlessly. When we were there we had a few unforeseen logistics to work out with room reservations for two of our families. She stepped in and make sure it was all taken care of so we could relax and enjoy our time at the resort in the days before the wedding. The Sirata did a fantastic job setting up for our wedding on the beach, and the ceremony included choice of arch. We chose the bamboo arch which is a four post setup and paid a florist to hang drapes from the bamboo. It was absolutely beautiful. They provide a sound system as well. The ceremony on the beach is within perfect distance from the ocean, and they make sure the sands and area around the ceremony were nicely groomed for the day of. The wedding went off without a hitch, everyone commented on how well organized everything was, and how it seemed to come together flawlessly. The wedding started on time, everything happened as planned, and we were all very relaxed. We had our reception in the Royal Palm Ballroom. The food was delicious. We chose plated meals, and they were able to serve everyone at the same time, even for a party of 90. The catering staff did an excellent job of ensuring guests had everything they needed for dinner and they accommodated special dietary needs for a couple of our guests. Everyone commented on how much fun they had at our wedding, and how much they enjoyed their time at the resort. I felt like we couldn’t have picked a better venue on the beach, and I am so happy we chose the Sirata. Every time I think of our ceremony on the beach I smile. It was such a beautiful day and we have Kasey Bussell and the Sirata to thank for making our beach wedding so amazing. It was a day we will never forget.
We recently got married at the Sirata and the whole experience was wonderful. The wedding planner was amazing, easy-going, patient and very professional. We totally recommend working with Kelli. The Sirata went out of their way to accommodate us and our family. Every request we made was taken care of and the Sirata took it upon themselves to make us feel at home. The beach venue was beautiful. The Staff and food were AMAZING- our guests couldn't stop talking about the amount and quality of food. Overall what a great celebration and I give most of the credit to the Sirata!
Beach Front WeddingReviewed on 12/20/2015
Great place for the ceremony and an amazing set up for the reception. We were in the Coconut Palm Pavillion and it was a breathtaking event. They were very accommodating with the dinner menu items, set up on the day of and with our vendor choices. The scenery is breathtaking and really added to the overall event. Kasey was our account manager and professionally helped us through every step of the wedding. The only complaints I have came from the reservations department for the hotel rooms. Many of our rooms were reserved incorrectly and trying to get a hold of the person on the phone that was handling our weddings reservations package was challenging. It should just be a simple call to the hotel with a code or reservation number so that it doesn't have to be so difficult and inefficient for the client and guest. Other than that everything was great. With so many different things that could have gone wrong I will live with a difficult reservations department. It was such a beautiful scene, great accommodations and location as well as a professional on site staff that helped us from first meeting to the end of the night arrangements. We had an unforgettable wedding thanks to the Sirata.
Kelli Love- we cannot thank you enough!! From the first tour to the tasting to the planning around our crazy schedules- ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! The kindness, efficiency, flexibility, affordability, location, ambiance, ALL was STUPENDOUS- You all made our day GREAT! Our guest comments from New York to LA was that this was the best wedding they attended!! Thank you and thanks for a great decompression Honeymoon while we stayed the week after - we loved the location, beach, accommodations!!! Thanksgiving Dinner, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, farewell breakfast!! Can't say enough for all- Maria P(Housekeeping), Nick(reception), Wait staff - Michelle, Travis, John and Michael- Love you all - we have 2 more weddings in our family in the upcoming years! I hope they will be here!!
Our amazing beach weddingReviewed on 11/19/2015 Sarah L
My husband and I just got married on October 25th of this year and let me tell you...Sirata made our dream wedding come true. Everyone was extremely nice and easy to work with. Kasey Bussell was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing. She made sure that we were comfortable with everything that was happening and gave us great suggestions for vendors. The whole Sirata crew made sure that our day was perfect. We had the perfect beach wedding and I couldn't have imaged it any different.
Kasey Bussell and the whole team at the Sirata were amazing, our wedding day couldn’t have been any more perfect. Kasey always answered our questions promptly, made all the information clear and was awesome on the day of the wedding. She was jumping in and helping with things and just made sure everything ran smoothly. The beach area for the ceremony was beautiful and the reception on the North Deck was simple and perfect for us. Everyone raved about the food- I felt like we spent an average amount per person but got a lot more than we were expecting- a raw bar, beautiful ice sculpture, a carving station and a lot of different options overall. If you’re getting married in St. Pete check out the Sirata- their prices are fair, the services is incredible, you get a lot for your money, the people are awesome and ask for Kasey, she’s the best!
Our Wedding was PerfectReviewed on 11/10/2015 Kori S
Kasey and the rest of the staff was amazing. We had such a great time. The food was amazing. We had the Floridian Buffet. Guests loved the Seafood Station and the Baja Chicken was some of the best chicken I have ever had. The outside Ceremony was breathtaking. The Hotel Rooms could use some upgrades and service at Rum runners could use some improvement. That is the only thing that could have been better.
Sirata Made Our Special A Day Perfect OneReviewed on 11/01/2015
Wow! My wife and I had the opportunity to start our life together at the Sirata Beach Resort. We cannot say enough great things about this place. First of all, the resort is beautiful, affordable, and HUGE. With three separate buildings, one restaurant, two bars (that also serve great food), one store, three pools, and great entertainment, you cannot get bored at this place. We stayed a whole week and we could have easily stayed longer. As far as the wedding, you could not ask for a better staff or a more beautiful view. Our ceremony was on the beach and our wedding coordinator, Kasey Bussell, made it a huge success. We had tons of options to choose from for decorating but we made it complicated by providing our own and Kasey made it happen seamlessly. They even have back up plans just in case the weather tries to spoil your day (luckily we didn’t have to worry about that). We chose to have a cocktail hour that took place inside a spacious, air conditioned, tented area called the Coconut Palm Pavilion. It was perfect! Our guests were able to enjoy themselves with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while enjoying a beautiful beach view without sweating their butts off in the hot Florida sun, while my bride and I were off taking photographs. Following the cocktail hour, our reception was held on the 12th floor with a breathtaking view of the ocean and St. Pete Beach. The food was delicious and we were fed promptly. Kasey gave us some recommendations on our DJ and he did not disappoint! Everyone had a blast dancing and throwing back some cocktails made by the courteous bartender. The rest of the staff was very friendly and attentive as well. During your festivities, they have a manager on site to expedite any problems (which we had none) or respond to any need that we had. The options for accommodating our guests (music, food, etc) were endless and totally customizable. Kasey made sure our day was very special and one to remember. We had many questions throughout the planning process and she was attentive and very responsive, which is extremely important as this was a destination wedding and were unable to be there to plan. We couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator. Aside from the wedding festivities, the resort was amazing. The great food and drinks at the bars and restaurants were delicious and affordable for this location. The vibe the resort gives off is perfect. You feel at home away from home but with plenty of pampering to assure that you remember you are on vacation. You do not have to worry about anyone else but yourself at this resort. Everyone from the greeters at the front desk to the Bellmen to the bartenders, they ensure that you have a wonderful stay. Book your wedding at the Sirata and make sure to spend some extra time there to fully enjoy all it has to offer.
After looking at many different beach resorts for our wedding in Pinellas county we found Kelli & the Sirata! Kelli was one of the few planners that actually was responsive & helpful throughout the entire process. We really wanted to have the ceremony & reception on the beach, as well as find a place to spend extra days with family & friends; only Sirata had the perfect place to accommodate. The reception was held in the Coconut Palm Pavillion & we had the buffet dinner, which was delicious. All of our guests raved about the food & the service provided. We opted for the breakfast buffet too which was equally yummy & appreciated by our guests. Everyone at the hotel was very nice & welcoming. They are definitely experts at this & as you look out from your balcony & see all the weddings in a day that they have, you know they have it down to perfect. The only thing that not perfect was the rooms. They are a little outdated but they are in the process of updating rooms. We didn't mind so much though because the most important things like the food, the venues, the employees. the location, etc were excellent. It's a perfect place for a group gathering event like a wedding...we are so glad we chose the Sirata!
We loved having our wedding at the Sirata. Kasey B. was amazing from start to finish with helping plan our big day. She made everything so easy and was quick to answer any questions I had. Our guests loved the property, it was really the perfect spot to have both groups of family and friends meet and mingle. Our ceremony and reception space were perfect (North Deck and Royal Palm Ballroom) and the entire day was just as I envisioned! Thanks for a beautiful beach wedding!
Exceeded All ExpectationsReviewed on 9/23/2015
As the mother of the bride, I cannot say enough about how beautifully and simply my daughters wedding came together. I credit Kasey, the wedding planner and all of the staff at Sirata for the success. Kasey is not only extremely organized, but she listened to all of our needs and followed through perfectly. My daughter and I had none of the tension that people always complain about through the wedding planning process, because of the excellent step by step Sirata timeline managed by Kasey. She recommended vendors based on our needs, and made great suggestions throughout the process. As a result, we had a gorgeous, and amazing celebration. The overall service at Sirata was outstanding. The food was exceptional and everyone made you feel like family. The casual environment, right on the beach...with lots of open air space for guests...provided a great way for guests to get to know each other before the wedding. Overall it was a 4 day celebration of fun and love! The guests suggested we all go back to celebrate the 1 year anniversary next year together!
Delicious!Reviewed on 8/29/2015
We chose the Sirata Sunset Buffet at our reception. It was absolutely delicious! The guests raved about how great the food was! Definitely a great pick!
My Picture Perfect Beach WeddingReviewed on 8/02/2015 Gail H
As the bride, I have always dreamed of my wedding day and I always imagined it in my head. I was fortunate enough to put those visuals to real life and I had the help of the Sirata Resort to make my dream wedding day happen! From the moment I touched based with the wedding cordinator, Kasey Bussell I knew I picked the perfect destination for my wedding. Kasey was prompt to answer all questions, every email, and she made sure my finance' and I knew everything that was happening. Kasey was quick to give me the vendor list so I could make my phone calls and start booking them. It made it so much easier for me since I lived states away and was planning everything via email/phone, ect! Kasey was patient and make sure our wedding day was perfect! Sirata has so much to offer from their different styles of rooms/rates, 3 pools to choose from, a walk away from the beautiful gulf, several hammocks with great views to stop, relax, and take the beautiful scenery all in, 3 different restuarants/bars, volleyball, and access to transportation to take you anywhere in St. Pete's Beach. I can't forget that the Sirata is in walking distance to several great eating establishments....be sure to check out Crabby Bill's and Shells! Delicious! Every single staff member of Sirata was friendly, helpful, and did everything they could to make our stay memorable and easy! My finance' and I had a total of 100 guests and the bellboy staff made it their mission to greet everyone of our guests and made them feel welcome. I love the fact that the Sirata is a family owned resort and you could definitely feel it! Overall, Sirata Beach Resort was the best decision that my finance, now husband made when planning our wedding. Our wedding was perfect in every way and will never forget how special Sirata made it for us! Thank you Kasey Bussell for playing a huge part in our wedding day!!!
Had an unfortunate situation where we had to postpone and move wedding date. Sirata sadly was not allowing us to change the date unless we paid 100 percent of the catering at the time of date change. We also let them know we wanted to change the date 10 months before the wedding date. Since we did not have the money on the spot to pay 100 percent to change the date, we had to cancel and lost our $3,500 deposit and were forced to pay an extra $1800 because of cancellation. I ended up choosing the Grand Plaza, but wish I could have had my dream wedding at Sirata.
Wonderful! We rented out the beach space and had a different person coordinate the chairs. The beach was gorgeous and a back up room was available in case of bad weather. Security was provided to make sure nobody crashed our big day. I would go back and do it all over again and not change a thing!
Sirata was AMAZING in everyway!Reviewed on 7/09/2015 Heather A
We held our destination wedding at the Sirata and had family fly in from all over the world. All of our family and friends were extremely happy with the entire resort and staff. The 16 months of planning before our actual wedding date were so simple and Kasey was always there to answer every single question we had! We could not have asked for a better weekend! Everything was taken care of from the ceremony to the dinner and dance! The staff was amazing and of course the day was perfect and beautiful! Our family and friends really enjoyed the bars and restaurants on the property and everything was resonably priced as well. The rooms/suites were perfect for having our large wedding party get ready in and Kasey even came to our rooms to help with everything we needed to have set up. Kasey deserves a GOLD STAR for her amazing customer service and accountability! AMAZING lady and very helpful in every way!!! We can't wait to visit again!!! Highly reccommend this venue for beach weddings!
From start to finish, my husband and I had a wonderful experience with the Sirata. Kelli was our wedding coordinator, and she went out of her way to make all of the little details of the day come together. There was an out-of-the-blue thunderstorm with torrential rain and crazy wind during the 30 minute window of our beach ceremony, so we ended up getting married in the covered breezeway, but everyone really tried to go through with the beach ceremony until the last second, which we appreciated. Regardless, the ceremony was beautiful, and the staff did a great job moving our cocktail hour inside without prior notice. Our reception in the Royal Palm Ballroom was everything we hoped it would be. Many of our guests came from out of town and spent several nights at the resort; we are still hearing about how much everyone love it. If I were to do the whole thing over I wouldn't change a thing!
I just had my wedding this past weekend at the sirata and I couldn't ask for a better crew to work with. Kasey, chris, nicolas, and the rest of the crew did an amazing job! It can get pricy but so worth it in the end! The view, and just everything that day was perfect! I highly recommend having a wedding here!
DREAM COME TRUE!!!Reviewed on 5/12/2015 Heather G
Our wedding was at the beautiful Sirata Beach Resort May 2. Our beach wedding and reception in the Coconut Palm Pavilion was everything I dreamed it would be. Kasey Bussell, our Catering Manager was absolutely amazing to work with. Through the entire planning period she was extremely responsive and helpful to each of my inquiries. The resort itself is great...very well maintained, clean rooms,friendly staff,great food and drinks at the restaurants. Our ceremony site and reception area were everything I imagined it would be. I just loved the open pavilion with the breeze coming off the water. Service at our reception was spectacular thanks to our Banquet Manager, Ric and his entire staff. Food was amazing. So many of our guests commented on the superior service,with some saying it was the best wedding they have ever attended! If you are looking for the perfect Florida beach wedding venue I highly recommend the Sirata Beach Resort!
Coconut Palm Pavilion WeddingReviewed on 4/19/2015 danielle r
Our wedding ceremony was held on the beach at The Sirata Beach Resort which couldn't have been more beautiful. The reception that followed was held in the tent on the beach called The Coconut Palm Pavilion. We opted to have the walls removed so the feeling of being on the beach was still present. We had to have a buffet dinner since the tent is so far from the kitchen but I was happy to hear the guests loved the food. Kasey and her team are wonderful to work with and very accommodating. All of our guests were from out of town and very much enjoyed their stay at the relaxing Sirata Beach Resort. I would highly recommend this venue for a bride that wants a beautiful beachside venue with the convenience of quality on-premise catering.
Best day of my life!!!Reviewed on 4/01/2015 janine r
My partner and I got married January 31st of this year at the beautiful Sirata Beach Resort, on St. Pete beach Florida. It truly was the best day of our lives! I was always hearing from other couples when getting married something always goes wrong and to just relax if it were to happen. However on this day I can truly say not one thing went wrong. We had the best wedding coordinator, her name was kasey and she was above and beyond everything we could of asked for! She was always there for us when we needed her with answers and solutions to any questions we had, weather it was via e-mail or phone she was always imidiate to respond and made us feel like we had known her for years!!! The staff was on point to all our needs and what we had dreamed our day to be. If we had the money to do it all over again we would do it here with all these awesome people again. They truly new what our vision was for our special day and they made our fairy tale wedding come to life! We will be reunioning our vows here In the future for sure, and I would reccomend the sirata beach resort and there great staff- espically kasey, to anyone who wants to have the perfect dream wedding come to life!! It absolutely was the best day of our lives!!!
