    Hi I'm looking for the perfect wedding destination in Thailand but have never been so am finding it really hard- we want a resort on the beach where 60 of our friends and family can stay, pools, beach bar, kids club would be great and a ceremony in the resort gardens- are we being too picky?!!

    We'd also like some infrastructure around the resort- a few restaurants and bars to choose from but not too much- chaweng beach koh samui for instance sounds a bit too touristy-

    can anyone help?

      Koh Samui is not very touristy...Puket or Pataya...that's touristy.
      There's more to do in Koh Samui for your guests. If you want peace and quite, there's Koh Tao just 2 hour boat ride away.

      Hi Caroline,
      I would go to Koh Tao. This is a gorgeous island, perfect for nature and privacity.
      Congratulations on your wedding and welcome to this great forum!!

          Hi! You really can't go wrong in Thailand, my bff just got married in Koh Samui this past January and it was absolutely beautiful. We stayed on the more remote side of the island so it wasn't as touristy and took a snorkel trip around some of the other islands. Her wedding was held at the far away villa, and we stayed at a hotel right next door.

            I second that Koh Samui is not touristy. I too stayed there on a more-removed part of the island and it was fantastic! No tourists or crowds at all. We stayed at a very luxurious resort, but it doesn't fit the bill for what you're describing you want (not many restaurants/ bars to choose from).

                    Hi Caroline

                    This come quite late but hope it helps you or at least some another bride here . Our wedding organizer Aey made us great group deal to Beach Republic in Samui Lamai beach which was perfect place to hang around whith frinds and family. She had many difrent options where to choose, some of resorts was small enought book to use only for wedding party.
