Samui has long been a popular holiday destination and in recent years had grown in popularity as a wedding destination, and not just because of its abundance of incredible beaches that provide the ultimate backdrop for a perfect wedding but because it has a myriad of activities for you and your wedding guests to enjoy and a vast range of accommodation to suit a vast range of budgets, something that is particularly important when you are considering the needs of wedding guests, who have flown a considerable distance to be with you on your special day. Koh Samui is also the perfect honeymoon destination which makes getting married in the Gulf of Thailand even more convenient.


In terms of finding the right location for your wedding in Koh Samui there are certainly plenty of options. If you are familiar with the island you may already have an idea of where you would like to say “I do”, if you are not so familiar with the island then a wedding planner might can help you find the perfect spot.

The Chaweng Beach area is bustling with restaurants, nightlife and shops. This area is a good choice if you have guests that like to be in the thick of the action and within easy walking distance of everything they could need.

Lamai is similar to Chaweng but on a far smaller scale making it ideal for those who like the convenience of having everything on your doorstep but in a location that offers quieter spots for those who want a more laid back atmosphere.

Bophut, Maenam and Bangrak offer a handful of great restaurants and bars as well as shopping but are far more quiet than Chaweng and Lamai and are great choices for couples and their guests who are looking for a more laid back approach for their beach wedding in Koh Samui.

For those who wish to get as far away from the maddening crowds as possible the villages in the south of the island offer peace, quiet, tranquility and deserted picture perfect beaches. There are many resorts and private villa in these areas that will get you away from it all and propel you into your own private paradise where you and your guests can indulge in the very core of the best that paradise has to offer. Of course being in a remote part of the island does not mean that you are cut off from the more populated areas, far from it.
