4 Great Resorts For Your Wedding
People get married in all kinds of places, from their own homes to sensational chapels and cathedrals, and everything in between. But if you’re going for a festive occasion, you care about location, and you’d like to have the wedding ceremony and reception all in the same general area, you can’t do much better than a high-end resort. For this reason, we’re presenting four such places in East and Southeast Asia that can be ideal choices for a wedding.
1. Four Seasons Koh Samui – Koh Samui, Thailand
The island of Koh Samui is a popular destination for tourists in general, and is also frequented for weddings and honeymoons alike. And the Four Seasons is one of the more respected and reliable resort chains in the world. Blending the two together predictably works very well at the Four Seasons Koh Samui – a stunning luxury resort that embraces the surrounding nature without sacrificing any comforts or amenities. Terrific service and unparalleled facilities make it an ideal place for you and your guests in the days before or even after the wedding. A write-up about one couple’s wedding ceremony at this hotel best described the vibe: “just a real tropical wedding in Southeast Asia.”
2. Sands Macao – Macao, China
The Sands Macao is best known as a casino resort – though if we’re going to put it in that category, it’s worth noting that it’s actually been written up as one of the best casinos for a destination wedding. A recent piece highlighted just three resorts in the entire world for this category, and noted that a wedding at the Sands is guaranteed to amaze your guests. That seems a safe statement when you consider all this resort has to offer. There world class rooms and amenities, various terrific forms of entertainment, and great restaurants. Plus, the resort is right in the thick of Macau’s very own version of the famous Las Vegas “Strip.” If you’re interested in a bright, loud, busy destination for your celebration, put it on your list.
3. Mulia & Mulia Villas – Bali, Indonesia
Bali is perhaps more popular for honeymoons than for weddings, but when we’re talking about resorts, the two occasions can be nearly interchangeable. That is to say, a beautiful honeymoon destination with a luxury resort can function just as well for a destination wedding. Such is the case at the Mulia & Mulia, one of Indonesia’s most famous getaways There are actually multiple Mulia venues, but the Mulia Resort is ideal for a wedding even if you have a big party traveling. It’s a sprawling hotel complex with its own beach, a massive pool area, and numerous outdoor spots that can be perfect for a ceremony. In fact, the resort is even famous for having a “floating chapel” that many couples choose to get married in!
4. Kata Rocks – Phuket, Thailand
We’ll start with a quote from a review of this hotel, because it says about all you need to see to get excited about the idea: the hotel offers fabulous Andaman sea views from its spectacular cliff-side location. That’s quite a picture to paint, and it adequately expresses some of the wonder of this resort. A sort of tiered design allows the hotel to have hilltop villas and beachside facilities at the same time, and just about everywhere you go on the property you’ll be facing the beautiful seas around Phuket. It may not be as well suited as, say, the Mulia for a particularly large party, but it’s as pretty a place as you could hope to find for a wedding.
