Samui Wining & Dining
Wed in Bliss

Tying the knot anywhere on Samui is a wonderful experience – but especially so at Anantara Bophut.

 

3Samui has been a popular holiday destination for several decades now. And around one million people visit the island every year. But for some it’s not just about relaxing and having fun, they’re here to commemorate one of the most important dates in their lives – their wedding day.


Many of the large resorts can organise that special occasion but, like anything else, a few stand out from the crowd. One of those is the Anantara Bophut Resort, a luxury beachside hotel and spa that has fabulous facilities, an outstanding wedding co-ordinator and one of the island’s most renowned executive chefs.


Khun Air has been responsible for creating the perfect day for hundreds of couples. And her organisational skills, keen eye for detail and omnipresence ensure that each couple has everything they wish for before, during and after the event. Having your own personal wedding planner take care of every component part of your celebration leaves you worry-free to enjoy each second of your time on Samui.


Executive Chef, Don Lawson, has spent the last 25 years working in 5-star hotels and resorts in Australia and Southeast Asia. He leads a kitchen brigade of 35 and Anantara’s signature restaurant, Full Moon, is consistently rated one of the very best on the island. Don has won numerous awards and accolades and he’s also the President of the Samui Culinary Circle and the person that chefs new to Samui turn to for advice. And he and his team are the ones that design and produce tailor-made menus for every wedding and event.


Weddings are booked directly through their website and with wedding planning companies from abroad. Natalie Doherty and Anna Robinson own and manage the Melbourne-based weddings and events company ‘Take us to Thailand’ and have been bringing couples to Samui for the last four years. Anantara is one of the few places they recommend to their clients as a host venue. “We love the boutique feel of the property, the outstanding food and the beach location which is within strolling distance of the quaint Fisherman’s Village. The driveway, lush gardens and the spa are real highlights and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. We often receive comments from clients and their guests saying it’s the best food they’ve ever eaten and that their expectations were more than exceeded in every way.
