Voted UK’s best hotel, The Celtic Manor Resort events are claiming that title easily, as they are industry experts in hospitality.

First achieving global recognition with the 2010 Ryder Cup, the hotel has earned presidential approval with the 2014 NATO summit. – Hosting 60 world leaders and 4,000 delegates, The Celtic Manor Resort has proven there’s no event too big to handle.

With their showstopping experiences, The Celtic Manor has met popular demand to repeat event successes year after year.

With that being said, let’s see what’s on at the resort for 2018…


Over the month of June, The Celtic Manor hosted some of its years biggest events, attracting thousands of guests from across the country.

Polo at The Manor


On Saturday the 16th June 2018 we saw one of the most glamorous summer events of the year. The Polo at The Celtic Manor Resort, Hosted by Capital FM and sponsored by Motorpoint.

Over 3000 visitors dressed to impress to take part in treading the divots, sipping on prosecco and catching some sporting action in the glorious summer heat.

In between spectating the sport, guests explored the various delicious food stalls, champagne bars and enjoyed live music at the Polo Village.  Living up to the luxury, the Elemis Spa Bus was back again this year offering pampering treatments.

Lucky guests with hospitality tickets got the full VIP treatment. Rubbing shoulders with the stars such as Towie’s Lydia Bright, Sara Elgan-Easterby, Rhys Williams, Josie Gibson, Shayne Ward and Kym Marsh.  In the Jacquart Hospitality Pavilion or a private pod, guests had mouth-watering dishes and champagne on ice.


That’s not all, each year guys and gals dress to impress in show-stopping outfits, for a chance to be spotted as best dressed. Winners won a luxury overnight stay and bottle of Jaquart Champagne.


For those who didn’t want the day to end, it didn’t stop there. Many let their hair down at the Polo After Party, where there were live music, drinks and more delicious food!


Celebrity Cup Golf

The Celebrity Cup Golf is always a sell-out event, and it was a full house again this year! With celebrity guests such as Ronan Keating, Gethin Jones, Bradley Walsh and Jenni Falconer to name a few.


The weather was scorching, and the celebrities were entertaining. And to the delight of the Welsh, Team Wales were the winners the who popped their cork on the podium!

The Celebrity Cup Golf is a fun event, and it’s always in the name of a great charity. This year, over £40,000 was raised for Velindre Cancer Centre – Doubling their original target of £20,000.

And what better way is there to attract support than to stir up national pride. The four nations battled it out for a chance to hold the title as the best-golfing nation, at the Celtic Manor Celebrity Cup Golf.

To round the day off nicely, an evening Gala dinner was served. Topped off with performances from Gruffydd Wyn- Britains got Talent finalist, Blast from the past Boyzlife and The Brotherhood.

A great event with a great cause.

Each year the Resort hosts a Spectacular fireworks event.
