Weddings are now even more wonderful! Named the ‘World’s Leading Wedding Resort’ for the second year running at the prestigious World Travel Awards last December, the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam is adding to and improving on its range of wedding packages. The resort has just launched a new luxury wedding package including accommodation for the married couple and their guests in 4 beachfront villas boasting stunning views over the Gulf of Thailand (the villas can accommodate a maximum of 3 persons each). Beautifully decorated in traditional Thai style, each villa has its own Jacuzzi bath and a verdant tropical garden with private patio, garden shelter and swimming pool, making it a real haven of tranquillity where the only sounds come from the ocean waves and the singing of birds!
The package also includes the organization of the wedding ceremony itself, set against the fairy-tale backdrop of the sea and its gorgeous islands. Now the ceremony can be conducted over water, with the help of a transparent, 45 m2 platform set over one of the hotel’s infinity pools, imbuing any wedding celebration with an ethereal beauty that will take your breath away – all against the backdrop of a coconut grove and the turquoise-blue of the ocean.
In addition to your very own wedding planner and celebrant to oversee the exchange of vows, the package also covers wedding decorations in the shape of a tulle-draped gazebo, a flower petal-strewn bridal path, two floral displays on stands and the bridal bouquet and groom’s buttonhole. A bottle of Champagne and a wedding cake for 10 people are also included, as is a 90-minute massage for the newly-weds in the very relaxing surroundings of the Baan Thai Spa.
Set in stunningly beautiful surroundings, nestled in the middle of a huge coconut plantation, the Koh Samui luxury resort offers three other wedding packages, including a traditional Thai wedding with a long drum parade, Buddhist monks’ blessing and a baby elephant escort. And of course, all this takes place against the gorgeous backdrop of this luxurious resort and the daily spectacle of fiery, hopelessly romantic sunsets over the sea.
Wedding package with private villa accommodation at the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort: From 4,400 euros, including accommodation in 4 beachfront villas for one night, the services of a wedding planner, a celebrant to oversee the exchange of vows, wedding decorations – decorated gazebo, flower petal-strewn bridal path, two floral displays on stands, bridal bouquet, groom’s buttonhole, six floral centrepieces for the meal – together with a bottle of Champagne, a wedding cake for 10 and a 90 minute massage for two at the Baan Thai Spa. Extra fee for the over-water ceremony: Euro 1,300, tax excluded. Wedding menus are available from 60 euros per guest.
