This stunning beachfront resort offers a dreamy option for both a destination wedding and a honeymoon package
Imagine your dream destination wedding — an exotic setting with white sand, crystal-blue sea and perhaps some gorgeous elephants at your ceremony. Chaweng Regent Beach Resort in Koh Samui, Thailand, can help make this a reality. Having operated in the travel industry for more than 10 years, Chaweng offers its own wedding planning services, and the staff pride themselves on going above and beyond to help create a day to remember.
The resort’s weddings and events manager, Marnie E Rudd, is dedicated to organising the perfect wedding. “We are a one-stop shop and the couple doesn’t have to worry about the planning and organising as everything will be taken care of,” says Marnie. The wedding planner will be in contact with the couple directly and will be with them from the early planning stages through to the day of the event.
The resort offers two styles of weddings — Western and traditional Thai. The Western style is set on the longest, most beautiful beach in Koh Samui and includes a beautiful fl oral arch or canopy framing the stunning backdrop. The traditional Thai style is generally situated in a decadent tropical garden featuring an open pavilion, creating a romantic and intimate location. Every ceremony has something special and unique, and can vary depending on what the bride wants, such as different floral arrangements and flower selections. Fullpackage prices start from 80,000THB (approx. AU$2805), which includes everything necessary for the ceremony. There are additional entertainment options available, for example fire twirlers, elephants and Thai cultural dance shows.
As a recent winner of a Certifi cate of Excellence Award by Trip Advisor, Chaweng is an ideal destination for a honeymoon, as well as a destination wedding. A variety of packages are available to suit your needs — picture a couple’s massage or an intimate dinner by the sea. The premier rooms have their own private jacuzzis for you to enjoy, perhaps after indulging in some in-room breakfast and champagne. Located only a short walk from the main restaurants and shops in Koh Samui, this is an incredible location to suit all tastes.
