Custom Wedding Journeys Attract Couples to Some of the Kingdom’s Most Romantic Locations with Memorable Rituals and Celebrations
Thailand based boutique luxury hospitality pioneer and member of Small Luxury Hotels of The World, AKARYN Hotel Group (AHG), has created a diverse collection of wedding experiences offered across four of its distinctive properties in a range of destinations that includes the southern Thai islands, the peaceful east coast and northern capital of Chiang Mai.
To complement the choice of stunning settings on offer for couple’s looking to exchange their vows and celebrate with friends and family, Aleenta and akyra Hotels and Resorts also provide a choice of inclusive or customisable wedding experiences that offer excellent value when compared with the cost of getting married in many other countries around the world.
Nestled on a pristine stretch of sand facing Pak Nampran Bay in Pranburi, a short drive south from Thailand’ s royal resort town of Hua Hin, Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa features just 24 unique beachside residences and offers a beautiful, intimate setting for couples to celebrate their special day. The resort team can organize Western-style wedding ceremonies and receptions, but the elegant Thai ceremony is an extra special affair allowing Thai and international couples the opportunity to infuse some of the Kingdom’ s most cherished and meaningful customs, including an energetic drum procession to announce the union and traditional blessings offered by a group of orange-robed monks.
At the luxury Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa in Phang Nga, the focus is on personalized weddings with every detail carefully considered, from the ceremony and reception style to the luxurious private venue, all enhanced by a range of special details designed to make each couple’ s day unforgettable. Along with a crafted selection of wedding packages, including an intimate ‘Just The Two Of Us’ Western wedding ceremony and a more extravagant ‘Dream Wedding’ package, the stylish beachside resort also takes pride in offering personalized options for every element of the ceremony and celebration.
Food and drink menus can be upgraded or enhanced with special additions such as dessert bars and coffee stations, the décor can be tailored to suit a couple’s individual tastes, expert local photographers and makeup artists can be brought in, and music choices can be curated into a personal wedding playlist.
In addition to the wedding ceremony itself, specially organised pre- and post-wedding day events, including bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, morning-after brunches and even gift-opening parties add to the bespoke choices available to couples.A short stroll down the beach, a sultry seaside vibe has been crafted that perfectly suits couples that want to combine a romantic beach wedding with a pulsating party at the recently opened akyra Beach Club Phuket.
Couples can host their wedding celebration on the resort’ s secluded beach, or in the exotic garden enveloped by southern Thailand’ s tropical beauty, framed by lingering sunsets and stylish surrounds. The sensational outdoor venue can cater for up to 100 guests whether for engagement parties, Western-style weddings, or Thai-style marriages.
After a picture perfect ceremony, couples and their guests can head poolside for some après-beach delights and chill out in style with DJ beats and delicious ice cream treats before dining on the best from the land and sea then turning up the party vibe at the resort’s integrated Club akyra. As well as being one of Thailand’ s hottest beach venues, the resort component of akyra Beach Club Phuket is the perfect location for wedding guests to stay on and enjoy a dream holiday, or for newlyweds to start their lives together on an unforgettable honeymoon in their own airy suite with romantic ocean views.
Located in Chiang Mai’ s trendy Nimmanhaemin district, akyra Manor Chiang Mai provides couples-to-be with acontemporary urban setting, stylish designs and top class global cuisine, all of which make it a highly desirable destination for intimate weddings or pre-wedding parties. The all-suite hotel’ s chic pool and dining venues include Rise Rooftop bar with views of the mountain city, as well as a sophisticated private salon with outdoor terrace that’ s perfect for stylish group dinners and family gatherings before the big day.
A pre-wedding photo shoot, complete with professional photographers, hair and make up stylists, can also be organized through the hotel.
“Tying the knot at one of our boutique properties in Thailand guarantees your special day will be everything you dreamed it would be, while also reflecting your personalities as individuals – we want couples to enjoy their wedding, their way,” says AKARYN Hotel Group’ s Managing Director and Founder, Anchalika Kijkanakorn.
“Saying ‘I do’ is still one of the most significant moments in a couple’s life, but it can also be one of the most stressful, especially if you’re trying to organise a destination wedding from halfway around the world,” adds Daniel Steinke, Group General Manager of AKARYN Hotel Group.
“Wedding ceremonies and receptions with Aleenta and akyra are always stunning events, and also stress-free for the bride and groom as our passionate teams take care of every detail for flawless experiences.”
