Koh Samui has rapidly evolved, from a spectacular island escape, most suited to adventurous travelers and honeymooners, into a more sophisticated and extremely popular wedding destination. The wedding industry is one of the most prosperous now on this small island.
White sandy beaches, blue seas, tropical mountain landscapes and a peaceful tropical environment provide the perfect backdrop for a tropical island Thailand beach wedding.
Koh Samui enjoys year round sunshine, and even in the rainy season (mid-October to mid-December) the weather remains mostly sunny with occasional showers.
Although still a small tropical island, the infrastructure is improving all the time and more and more items are becoming more readily available to ensure that most western wedding demands can now be met.
Despite the island’s exponential growth it still remains possible for everyone’s tastes and budgets to be catered for in terms of accommodation. Whether it’s a simple beach bungalow, a modest resort, or all the way up to five star resorts or luxurious rock-star private villa, on Koh Samui everything is possible.
With direct flights from Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Krabi. Koh Samui is easily reached from wherever in the world you and your guests may be traveling from. Many of the weddings on the island also tend to be couples with links to Australia and the UK and Koh Samui is conveniently situated in an almost midway position. This makes it ideal for visitors from both countries to be able to make the journey.
A stunning Thailand beach wedding followed by an exquisite outdoor dinner reception and party can be made available to suit most budgets and even the higher end weddings will be a fraction of the costs for a comparable wedding elsewhere.
Koh Samui is a relatively small island. This means that all of the island attractions are accessible wherever you may be staying. It also means that your guests can all stay in different areas and still be able to meet up easily for pre and post wedding functions, as well as the big day itself.
Koh Samui is a diner’s delight. From street food, through to simple Thai restaurants and all the way to international fine dining, Koh Samui has it all. As the island has grown the choice of international food outlets has also increased. Of course, Thai food is a must for most visitors, but for those less adventurous you will definitely find something you like. Fast food options such as MacDonald’s, Burger King, KFC and Pizza Hut are all here along with restaurants to suit all budgets such as Indian, Japanese, French, Italian, Greek, Russian, Mexican and so on, and not forgetting the traditional steak houses and bbq options.
Not only does Koh Samui offer some fantastic honeymoon resorts and villas, but there are also some great islands in the area which can be reached without any additional flights or expense.
