Perfect Thai beach for your Wedding
Thailand is home to a huge choice of magnificent beaches – but which one of them is the right fit for your destination wedding?
Thanks to the plethora of idyllic white sand beaches that line the shores of Thailand, the country has become a favourite destination for brides and grooms seeking to say their vows by the ocean.
Whether you’re heading to the Thai mainland, Koh Samui or Phuket, a stunning stretch of gleaming, tropical beach is never too far away but with all this choice at your fingertips, how do you choose the right stretch of sand for your big day?
Many of the best beach locations in Thailand are also home to an exclusive selection of beachfront private villas for rent – a big bonus for couples that want to host their celebrations in privacy and comfort.
Below are some of Thailand’s top beaches to inspire you – all of them with idyllic wedding villas for rent close to the shore.
Even though Natai Beach is situated on Thailand’s mainland, it’s so close to Phuket that all of the island’s top attractions are just a short journey away across the Sarasin Bridge. Thanks to its location off the beaten track, Natai retains a serene, exclusive feel and is relatively under-developed compared to some of Phuket’s more visited tourist destinations, like Patong. As a result, the area has become a hotspot for luxury properties such as the 7 stunning villas the make up SAVA – one of the region’s most sought-after locations for destination weddings.
Blissful Bang Tao
Few beaches on Phuket can match the serene beauty and laid back atmosphere of Bang Tao. Stretching along the central sunset coast, Bang Tao is another of Thailand’s more luxurious beach destinations and offers a selection of high end property developments, scattered around the traditional fishing village at Cherng Talay. Bang Tao’s location and ambience make it perfect for couples that want to top their wedding ceremony off with an atmospheric photo shoot as the sun dips behind the ocean.
Serene Cape Yamu
While the beaches on the west coast of Phuket island benefit from sunset vistas, the less developed east side of the island provides the perfect retreat for couples that want to get away from it all on a quieter stretch of sand. Cape Yamu extends out from the eastern side of Phuket and the area boasts a lavish and diverse selection of villas– some of which is available to rent for wedding celebrations. Many of these properties also enjoy stupendous views of the ocean with access to hidden coves with modest but untouched stretches of sand.
Luxurious Lipa Noi
On the other side of Thailand’s southern peninsular in the Gulf of Siam sits Koh Samui which offers scores of idyllic, tropical beaches, many ideal for a tropical wedding. Lipa Noi is one perfect seaside location for couples seeking a scenic, peaceful place to host their wedding. The beach is particularly secluded, guaranteeing plenty of privacy on their big day and azure waters fringed by green coconut palms make the beach all the more attractive as a backdrop for the photos. The calm, shallow water also makes this a great stretch of ocean for a romantic stroll along the sand once the wedding ceremony is over.
Magnificent Mae Nam
Framing a long stretch of Koh Samui’s north shore, Mae Nam beach is one of the island’s little known treasures and therefore supremely peaceful when compared to busier beaches like Chaweng. The waters of Mae Nam are blissfully calm for most for the year, which is great news for photographers shooting images of the bride and groom with a serene ocean backdrop. The area lays claim to a number of high end facilities, from enticing restaurants to lavish private villas – some of which are large enough to be rented out for an exclusive luxury wedding celebration.
