gluten-free Destination Wedding

8 posts in this topic

Hello fellow gluten-free-ers!

My boyfriend and I have been talking about a destination wedding and we have settled on Thailand, India or Sri Lanka. I know a lot about all the cuisines but I was wondering if, by chance, anyone else has planned or been to a wedding in those countries or knows of any place in those countries that offer gluten-free-ness. We'd like a resort but are open to anything. We don't care if it's by the beach or not....

Thanks much!

I would do it at the Taj West End in Bangalore. Having traveled the globe for 30 years that is my favorite hotel (outside of the Big Island that is) There are a number of other Taj places that are really nice too but the staff at the West End is fantastic. The staff is excellent at gluten Free preparation and made me anything to order. The only other place I would consider but have not done would be the first class train tours which are rather expensive. I'm told they are excellent and something thats on my bucket list.

I've been sick every one of a dozen times in Thailand so I tend to avoid staying there for more than a few days on some project.

We have been ALLLL over the world, we travel for a living and these are the few countries we haven't been to. We have done 90% of Greece so that's out. And we are looking further into the Bangalore Hotel. Thanks and please keep the info coming! :)

I've been pretty much everywhere as either a photo journalist and then as a researcher on tropical fruit.

Outside of here in Hawaii India would be my first choice in the tropics and Japan would be 1st choice for anywhere else followed by Germany. The Taj West end grounds are beautiful and there are a number of day trips

The F&B Manager at the Taj is Vinod Pandey -- GM is Arindam Kunar. Director of Sales and just a great lad y is Divya Prabhakar -- she can fix anything in India!

good luck

    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
    • I was just thinking the same thing!
