thai wedding at the rayavadee

Jump to last reply

i thought I'd share our experience of getting married out in thailand - as I know when we were looking for an tropical venue these forums were a good source of info.

We took a dozen friends out to Krabi to stay at the beautiful Railay and Phra Nang beaches, and organised a wedding blessing at the rayavadee. We went out there in mid February 2005 - not long after the tsunami and they were still clearing up a bit, but we felt good to be the first party of guests at the resort - and the first wedding to be held there in 2005. Most people had cancelled their reservations and so there were only another 3 or 4 couples at the resort (they siad they had been 80% occupancy but pretty much everyone cancelled and went elsewhere).

The place was still being fixed up a bit - the pool was being retiled and work was going on at two of the restaurants and in some of the villas. Because part of the resort was out of operation we were all upgraded to spa pavillions which was nice, and the costs were reduced for us.

We had a wedding blessing in the grotto, followed by a procession down the beach and then a dinner on the terrace under the stars over looking the deserted bay.

It was all absolutely stunning, and the staff were so good to us and joined in the celebration. The attention to detail was amazing - flowers everywhere, service was discrete but fantastic.

We don't get to stay in many places of the Rayavadee standard, but were certainly made to feel very comfortable and welcome. The wedding planner - Garnshai was very good to us, and the rest of the staff were great.

If anyone's thinking of getting married somewher out in THailand - I'd highly recommend it. I know it's expensive, but for a small group of intimate friends. we found it to be an experience everyone will remember for a long time. Given how much it costs for a standard wedding in the UK - the option of taking just a small slect group ofclose friends away for an experience like that was to us a much better idea.

anyway - that's just our experience, hope it helps.
