The Most Private & Luxurious Wedding Venues
Our venues are chosen for their privacy, luxury and scenery, which makes each and every one of them ideal wedding locations.

Our negotiations and recommendations will take all the hard work out for you of choosing a venue and getting what you want from them as part of your wedding.
Plus, in using our services, you are not tied into one of their generic wedding packages.
Choosing Your Venue
Decisions. Decisions. How are you meant to decide from abroad where to hold your wedding, when there are so many options to choose from ?
That is where where we come in.
All you have to do is picture the perfect wedding location and budget you are happy spending on it - we will have the right spot for you.
Venue have been grouped together for you in these different budgets and categories:
Our Intimate Wedding Venues are luxury villas and suites on very private beaches, that are available from around just 5,000 THB per night. Luxury Resorts are the classiest resorts on the island and an average of around 12,000 THB per night, while the Private Villas range from an average of 30,000 THB per night and into their 100,000''s THB for estates representative of lifestyles of the rich and famous who do come and stay in them. Please keep in mind many villas charge an additional wedding premium fee and have minimum 3 nights stay.
Once you have an idea of the type of location and your budget, there are still a few more things you may like to consider:
The Settings Available for Your Wedding & Reception
Most couples come to us wanting a pristine and private beach location, adjacent gardens and entertainment areas needed for a perfect wedding venue.
So, all our venues have private beaches, gardens overlooking the beach, a gazebo pavilions & sea-view decks available for ceremonies and also the wedding reception afterwards.
If you have certain type of locations in mind for your ceremony and reception, it is usually preferable to choose somewhere that's suitable for both so you don't have to transport guests from one venue to another.
The Type of Tourist Area
Although you don't have to stay at your wedding venue, if you do you are going to want to think about the type of beach area you want to stay in and whether it should be quiet and serene or pretty and nearby tourist amenities.
Samui has a mix of great beaches to suit your needs for:
Privacy and Seclusion - If you want to really get away from it all, then the West Coast of Samui has that deserted island feel. Lipa Noi is one of the prettiest beaches and all beaches here get a direct sunset. There are private, luxury villas here, along with an exclusive beach club resort that we just love.
In Amongst the Action - Samui's most awesome beach is Chaweng and we can recommend a number of beautiful resorts here only moments away from party central, shopping and fun. Our chosen venues here retain peaceful sections of beach and so they are great wedding options for large groups.
Tranquility and Convenience - If you want the most beautiful beach that's charming, intimate and still only 15 minutes from the tourist hot spots, you can go past Maenam (voted 8th best beach in Asia).
Of course, we work all over the island, but these top 3 beaches have been chosen for good reason.
It is a good idea to work out an accommodation budget per night in order to decide on your wedding venue because that is the fee usually applicable in order to have your wedding there.
If you don't stay at the venue a rental fee equivalent of one nights accommodation may also be required.
Depending on how large your group is, catering and beverage at your location may also take up a substantial amount of your budget so it pays to have a venue that has a range of menu budgets.
Overall Style & Feel
There are a great range architectural styles to choose from, so deciding on a style that suits you will help further narrow down your perfect wedding location.
Classic Thai architecture with sweeping temple-like rooftops & open air pavilions are everywhere but there is also a mix of Roman, Tropical, Modern, Contemporary and just plain Luxury styles to choose from.
Many venues also have a mix of designs and you are guaranteed of finding just the right blend for you.
The most common request is elegant and tropical outdoor pavilions, beautiful water features, large, expansive gardens all on a beautiful beach. Lets be honest, you cant really go wrong with that and most of our venues have this and more. !
Booking Your Venue
After you have given us your requirements, we will work with you to recommend and narrow a venue and can make all your inquiries for you.
We recommend making accommodation bookings through us so we can ensure your chosen venue will be available to fit in with everything asked of them by us at your wedding.
Our negotiation position from Samui enables us to secure better deals for you.
Knowing we are dealing with your venue for you takes away much of the stress of not knowing what will happen.
As the main point of contact, we will ensure everything is agreed upon with your venue for your wedding and that they perform the services they have been contracted to do. We oversee everything and make sure there are no hidden surprises.
Because we can work with just about any venue in Thailand and because there are so many available, but we might not be, we recommend securing your wedding date with us in advance.
A 50% deposit is usually required to secure your accommodation and the remainder payable on to the venue on your departure.
Your Guests Accommodation
After you have chosen your wedding venue we can negotiate group booking rates for your guests there and in the surrounding area to suit their budgets.
Guests can make reservations through us or direct to the resort after mentioning they are part of your wedding party to receive their discounts.
Our pick of venues represents either beauty & value & or extreme exclusivity and luxury, but Koh Samui Island Weddings can also coordinate your wedding at any venue, including outside of Samui and all over Thailand.
