Planning Your Thailand Wedding 7 Villas You Must See

27 March 2020

7 of our best destination wedding villas in Koh Samui

With enviable year-round weather, sparkling seas and a back-drop of pristine beaches, Koh Samui is a popular wedding destination for many.

The picturesque island offers a unique blend of western comforts, Thai style and as it’s easily reachable via ferry or plane (taking just over an hour to fly from Bangkok!) it’s incredibly convenient for those who are looking to make their nuptials abroad—especially given the vast array of villas which are available on the island to host your wedding day at!

With all of our villas offering a multitude of views, whether beachfront or up in the hills overlooking lush forests, we have a variety of villas available which are perfectly suited for outdoor weddings. And the biggest perk of having your wedding on the grounds of your very own villa? Being able to retreat for a nap if the champagne flows just a little too freely!

The Residence

Bedrooms: 14

Accommodates: 100 guests seated or 120 guests standing.

With 42m of beach frontage and a backdrop which overlooks the neighbouring islands, The Residence has a stunning view for both you and your guests to enjoy during your wedding ceremony. Made up of 2x elegant villas, the luxuriously appointed residence has plenty of space for guests, with ceremonies taking place on either the beach or the lawn of the property. With a private gym, conference facilities, an outdoor pool and an in-villa chef to create your dream menu, there are plenty of amenities to keep guests busy and ensure that each wedding is as unique as the couple.

Set on an exclusive beachfront estate, the beautiful Villa Kalyana is set on a private bay on the scenic south coast of Koh Samui and has 50m of private beach. There are two wings to the villa, making it perfect for splitting between guests, but the main centrepiece of this villa is the impressive pool which lays amongst the palm trees: which creates a swim-around aspect to the villa where guests can splash their way around grassy islands and under wooden bridges, whilst exercising or simply having fun. And for the water-lovers, the fun doesn't stop there. With floating beds, water guns, snorkelling equipment and jet skis and a catamaran which are available for hire, Villa Kalyana is a tempting playground, perfect for post-wedding celebrations!

When it comes to getting married we all have our dream weather scenario. Some dream of rain pattering against the window panes, some dream of sunshine and others dream of overcast skies to avoid getting sunburnt. Luckily for you, on Koh Samui, there’s a weather type for everyone—with consistently warm temperatures to go with them. After all, you don’t want to be your own “something blue” on your wedding day!

You’ll typically find the most exceptional weather occurs between January and March as this is Thailand’s dry and hot season, and the weather tends to be more predictable during this timeframe.

April can be lovely for a wedding, however, it very much depends upon your tolerance to heat. Mainly because April is known as being the hottest month of the year in Thailand and whilst 35°c weather sounds lovely for your wedding day, when you’re wearing a 3-piece suit or a layered bridal gown, the temperature can soon creep up and become uncomfortable.

May to September is a favourable time for a wedding on the island of Koh Samui, with clear skies and warm temperatures as the standard. However, the weather can change quickly and as there’s the odd day of rain here and there, it can be a gamble as to what type of weather you'll have!

Late September to early December are the quieter months of wedding season on Koh Samui, mainly due to the unpredictability of the weather during the wet season. But because of this, there are some incredible deals to be found, so it all depends upon the type of ceremony and celebration you’re looking to have!


There are numerous things to consider when planning a wedding on Koh Samui, but the good news is that the island has numerous wedding planners available to help you plan your special day—and we work with the most prestigious of them!

With the ability to choose between different packages or to completely customise your own, the wedding planners we partner with work hard to ensure that every detail of your day exceeds your expectations and you receive a smooth service with no guesswork, just beautiful results.

Ideally, when you activate a wedding planner they will be involved from the very beginning of your Koh Samui wedding planning process, as they’ll be able to advise on location options and the time of year which works best for each. Once you've chosen your wedding planner, your Koh Samui wedding planning process will begin with an initial consultation where you’ll discuss any ideas you have for your wedding. This will include your budget and wedding size. From there the fun really begins, as you’ll look at options for your flowers, photography, food and beverage options, transport, accommodation, hair and make-up stylists, caterers and entertainment for your special day. Depending upon your wedding planner, they may take care of the paperwork for you too, ensuring the celebrant and marriage legalities are all ready for your special day!

Whether you’d like a hands-on approach, or to step back and let somebody take care of the details for you, a Koh Samui wedding is a beautiful way to say your vows. So, if you’re looking to get married in Koh Samui, take a look at our wedding villa page or send us an email with your requirements and we’ll put together some options for you!
