If you are looking for exotic beautiful places to get married by the beach, look no further, Thailand has everything you will ever dream of. The country was named Asia’s Sexiest Romance/Honeymoon Destination by the US-based Recommend Magazine’s readers, and one of the world’s Best Honeymoon Destinations for 2015 by Fodors.com.

Famous for its wonderful beaches and authentic Thai hospitality, the land of smiles is well equipped with top-notch facilities to cater to love birds from all over the world who want to get married in Thailand.

There are many islands in Thailand with fine beaches where you can tie the knot with your special someone. Here are our picks on the top 4 beach wedding destinations in Thailand that you should definitely take a look.


#1 Koh Samui

Ranked one of the top ten romantic destinations in the world by veryfirstto.com, alongside with cities like Paris and Venice, Samui is truly one of the top destinations for wedding and honeymoon in Thailand.

Samui has many stunning beaches with upscale accommodation by the beach. Almost all of them provide beach wedding ceremony along with other services such as catering, Thai wedding ceremony, legal ceremony, venue decoration and many more. Choosing a venue will of course depend on your preference and budget.

If you like your wedding to be outstanding and grand, Chaweng Beach has many to offer. The beach has many luxurious accommodations both from international chains and locals’ ones. In addition to that, Cheong Mon Beach also has beautiful luxurious accommodations where the beach is less crowded.

However, if you want your dream wedding to be more private, you can try standalone accommodations where some of them might have private small beach or choose to rent from a selection of luxurious private Koh Samui villas, where you can enjoy utmost privacy, beautiful landscape of its surrounding and stunning scenery on its front. If you’re looking for more options, Bophut and Lamai Beach are also perfect for beach wedding.

#2 Phuket

It is hard to decide which destination is the best beach destination in Thailand as Phuket also has a lot to offer. Being the biggest island in Thailand, Phuket serves as a gateway to many beautiful southern islands of Thailand such as Phi Phi Islands and Similan Islands.

In term of accessibility, Phuket wins over Samui as there are many airlines providing domestic flights from many major cities in Thailand as well as direct flights abroad.

For accommodation, Phuket has many lodging options from small boutique luxury hotels to famous 5-star chain hotels with full facilities from spa, fine cuisine restaurants to sophisticated beach clubs.

Famous Phuket beaches where couples chose to get married are Bang Tao, Surin, Naithon, Layan and Laem Singh Beach due to their pristine and quiet beach as well as splendid accommodation. See photos of couples getting married at private villas in Phuket.

Private luxury villa rentals are also great alternative for those who seek the ultimate privacy. There are many luxurious private Phuket villas that will serve as a flawless private wedding venue as well as a love nest during the honeymoon time just like the following video of a power couple Gift & Gap.

Krabi might not have so many beaches to offer when compare to the destination like Phuket or Samui, but its beauty is sure hard to beat.

Important beaches in Krabi are including Ao Nang, Nopparat Thara, Phra Nang and Railey Beach.

Krabi is special due to the wonder of limestone cliff, amazing parting sea (Thalay Waek) and its lush greenery as well as the turquoise sea water.
