Wed In Bliss

ShaSa Resort & Residences’ secluded shores on the south coast provide a stunning setting for any beachside wedding

 

Page3FebSamui is a tropical paradise. Long stretches of golden sands, top-class resorts and fantastic scenery make it the ideal holiday destination. And it’s also very high on the list for couples looking for the perfect spot to exchange their wedding vows and celebrate their new life together.

Many resorts now focus on this blossoming market and every day there’re wedding ceremonies taking place somewhere on the island. And it’s not uncommon for the busiest beaches to have several taking place at the same time. That’s what happens when particular areas become too popular. However, Samui isn’t only about the northern and eastern beaches. And some of the most secluded, unspoiled and picturesque are on the south coast, little more than 20 minutes or so from Chaweng.

And that’s where ShaSa Resort & Residences is located. Perched on a scenic hillside the 32 chic suites (one, two and three bedrooms) and their private pool-villa are built around beautiful landscaped gardens and three cascading swimming pools on picturesque Laem Set Beach. It’s small enough to be exclusive but still have all the amenities of a 5-star resort including a wonderful in-house spa, a fitness centre and hydrotherapy pool, an elegant fine-dining restaurant – Beyond The Sea Siamese Brasserie – and a team of 85 to take care of your every need. They even have a ‘Kids Club’ and dedicated staff to look after them whilst parents relax and have some time to themselves.

     And they offer excellent deals on accommodation depending on the size of the wedding party. In effect, you could take over a part or even all of the resort. And for couples on their own, whether for an actual wedding ceremony or on honeymoon, their beachfront villa with its own infinity pool and personal butler is simply blissful escapism and as romantic as it’s possible to get. Should you wish to get married and have a reception at ShaSa, they’ll happily build your dream day around your vision.

He works with couples to develop the perfect post-ceremony culinary celebrations, whether that’s delicate canapés with champagne, a seafood barbecue by the beach, a private dinner for two or an elaborate feast of regional Thai specialities and international favourites. Simply give him an indication of what you would like and he’ll compile a special menu for the occasion.

ShaSa Resort & Residences is a picture-perfect location with all the amenities and modern facilities you could wish for. And they have an expert team on hand to ensure that all you have to do is focus on each other and enjoy every second of your new life together.
