Phuket is not only Thailand’s largest island but also it’s most famous due to numerous reasons: from its stunning beaches and picturesque viewpoints to its accessibility. It is only an hour and a half flight from Bangkok plus boasts a great number of direct international routes, including those from KL, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Sydney.
Phuket is renowned for its amazing hospitality and service. An array of gorgeous 5-star hotels and designer villas ensures that your time here will be unforgettable. Pristine beaches, blue waters, lush greenery on rolling hills, great nightlife, and a great variety of activities — all this and more make Phuket a perfect upscale holiday destination.
Especially so when it comes to your wedding! Phuket is one of the most popular luxury wedding destinations in the world, and rightly so. With the island’s highly developed wedding industry (a recent Destination Wedding Planners Congress hosted in Phuket proved that the highest standards are met) and a great variety of venues to choose from, the island is perfect for adventurous couples looking for an unforgettable wedding. As a destination wedding planner working on Phuket for many years now, we still fall in love with the island every single day.
Venues always set the mood and tone for the wedding day, and Phuket is best when it comes to choices of wedding venues. Luxury private villas, 5-star resorts, trendy beach clubs — you will have plenty of options not only for your ceremony and reception but also for your honeymoon.
Your guests will also not be disappointed. For those looking to chill and relax by the pool, there are a myriad beach clubs and beautiful beaches where they can dig their toes into the sand and completely let go. For adventurists, there are many incredible dive and snorkeling spots around the island, surfing and kite-surfing lessons (depending on the season) and day-trips to nearby national parks. For curious minds, there are cooking schools, where they can learn how to make curry from scratch or master the art of Thai desserts.
And let us not forget about the spas. For your pre-wedding treatment or honeymoon bliss, book a long, indulging spa session at one of the world-class spa centers Phuket has to offer. Essential oils, sea views, relaxing music, refreshing drinks, and the hands of professional therapists — downtime does not get any better than this.
