Amanpuri Resort, Phuket, Surin Beach, Thailand


Amanpuri Resort


Set high on a peninsula overlooking the Andaman Sea, Amanpuri's Villa Homes provide a picturesque setting for an informal Thai Buddhist, Christian or non-religious wedding blessing. Set amidst the coconut trees the two to six-bedroom Villa Homes have a living and open air dining sala, separate bedroom pavilions and spacious common areas with their own pool. Villa Homes offer the seclusion and intimacy of a private home as well as access to Amanpuri facilities and services. For your ceremony, they can be decorated with flower petals, fragrant jasmine, orchids and a floral archway. White and pale pink lotus flowers adorn the pool and the open-air spaces are lit with candles and torches.

A traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony is performed by up to five monks who garland the bride and groom with a string 'sai mongkon' that is then entwined to symbolise the coming together of two individuals. The couple are then blessed with holy water. The wedding party may wish to elaborate on the blessing with traditional Thai music and dancers, a Thai feast, elephant rides or perhaps a cruise on one of Amanpuri's fleet of luxury vessels. These are available for half-day, full-day and overnight charters. They can also serve as the venue for a small ceremony.

It is recommended that guests hold their civil ceremony in their home country prior to or following their wedding celebration at Amanpuri
