There’s nothing quite like saying “I Do” in paradise, barefoot on the soft white sands surrounded by your very closest family and friends. Koh Samui, Thailand’s largest island, is the perfect choice and a wedding villa gives you a luxurious and personal setting to really make your day magical. To assist you with the challenging task of finding a venue, here’s our pick of the best wedding villas on Koh Samui…
The exclusive island retreat of Villa Samudra has a beachfront location, epic vistas and is quite simply an incredible place to make your own and somewhere you’ll never forget for your dream destination wedding. The villa is located on a headland on the quiet bay of Laem Set beach on Koh Samui’s southern coastline. You are just 40 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from Lamai Beach. The sands are literally steps from your villa.
The villa sleeps 14 guests across 7 gorgeous, huge bedrooms. The guest rooms are spread across the different buildings which works very well for a wedding; you can come together and celebrate but there is plenty of space for everyone, especially the newlyweds, to have their own privacy too.
The beachfront villa simply oozes rustic luxury. It cascades over several levels making the most of the hypnotising ocean views. The villa has a stylish design concept of open plan living with a vast kitchen/ dining area and several spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Outside, your private 16-metre, infinity pool faces the ocean as do the loungers on your pool desk. That sensational view takes in dozens of neighbouring islands including Koh Tan, right across to the mainland, grab your spot as the sun sets and sit back and enjoy the show. The villa is fully staffed by a friendly team of five who successfully tread that line between always being there when required but being utterly unobtrusive too.
Also located in Laem Sor bay, the stunning Villa Kirana can easily accommodate up to twelve people, making it an ideal choice for a family wedding. Tucked away from busy tourist areas and fringed with coconut plantations, Laem Sor offers powdery white sands, sparkling turquoise waters and spectacular views across to the neighbouring islands of Koh Tan and sunsets over the mainland. The full-staffed, open plan villa has a contemporary Balinese design aesthetic, with striking, cutting edge architecture complimented by the impeccably tasteful décor of the interior. There are six ensuite guest bedrooms in separate bedroom pavilions. Outside, there is a 21-metre infinity pool, a separate kids’ pool and both sunny and shaded lounging areas with sun loungers as well as a BBQ/bar area and beautiful tropical gardens.
Villa Suma is also located in the exclusive Laem Sor bay and lies right next door to Villa Kirana. With another 6 bedrooms at Villa Suma, if you wedding is a little larger you could have guests staying across both villas. Villa Suma boasts a stunning open plan kitchen, living and dining area and vast outdoor living area. The gardens feature a large open-air deck with both sun-traps and shade and a heavenly 12-metre infinity pool. Favourite spots include the funky moonlight terrace on the second floor, the landscaped courtyard and the sofa bale by the pool; all of which are equally divine!
The stunning 4-bedroom oceanfront Villa Nagisa is part of the Barefoot Luxury Villas portfolio. It lies just beyond the stunning beaches of Plai Laem on Koh Samui. The exclusive villa is elegant, contemporary and open plan and the unending ocean views literally follow you as you drift from room to room. The sea frontage pool and large sun terrace offer a private oceanfront landscape. Take a cooling swim in the curvaceous 18m infinity pool, a pampering dip in the Jacuzzi, relax on a poolside lounger or on an oversized beanbag on the garden level. Housing just eight guests, the villa would be delightful for a very intimate wedding.
