InterContinental Koh Samui Resort introduces Asia’s longest overwater wedding aisle

As if getting married wasn’t enough to leave you floating on air, InterContinental Koh Samui Resort has unveiled a suite of wedding packages featuring a 390-feet overwater aisle – the longest in Asia – to allow brides and grooms to tie the knot while floating over the Gulf of Thailand.

“We bring wedding dreams to life”

Michael Shin, general manager at InterContinental Koh Samui Resort, said: “Koh Samui is a dream wedding destination offering romantic uninterrupted ocean views and dramatic cliffside backdrops. Here at InterContinental Koh Samui Resort, we bring wedding dreams to life. We aim to deliver bespoke wedding experiences and our over the water wedding aisle, at over 390 feet long is definitely unique.

“But this isn’t our only over the water wedding venue, couples can also say I do while floating on our infinity pool glass island with magnificent views over the palm grove and the Gulf of Thailand.”

 

InterContinental Koh Samui Resort is home to 79 rooms, suites and villas, which sit on a clifftop and descend through tropical gardens to a private 180-metre white sand beach.

The resort affords magnificent views across the Gulf of Thailand, the famous Five Islands and Ang Thong National Marine Park; no wonder it is featured in the New York Times’ bestselling book ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’.

“Incredible sunsets and breathtaking ocean views”

Jocelyn Whiteside, director of sales and marketing at InterContinental Koh Samui Resort, adds: “The enclave of Taling Ngam Bay is legendary. Our resort is renowned for incredible sunsets and breathtaking ocean views, set across 22 acres of luscious tropical gardens to the quiet, unspoiled, white sandy beachfront.”

The resort has recently enhanced its existing wedding offerings and launched two upgraded wedding packages; Infinity Love and Heaven on Earth.

As well as Asia’s longest overwater wedding aisle, InterContinental Koh Samui Resort offers a range of intimate and creatively designed venues – including a floating stage on the exclusive infinity pool; a suspended bridge, the only private pier on Koh Samui, or the hotel lobby overlooking the Gulf of Thailand – as well as a dedicated hotel wedding concierge to look after your every wish from start to finish.

Couples start their romantic journey with a private speedboat transfer from the airport and can choose from one of the resort’s luxurious and unique wedding packages and tailor it to match their vision for their special day, from an elopement for two with the Intimate Affair on Asia’s Longest Over Water Aisle, to a celebration for the entire family on the resort’s secluded beachfront.

InterContinental Koh Samui Resort wedding venues

The resort has nine wedding venues to choose from, each with their own character. The event can even be spread across the 22 acres of the property, with separate venues for the ceremony, sunset cocktail reception, dinner reception, and even after-party.

“Couples design their dream destination wedding”

Whiteside continues: “Couples can mix and match any combination of our incredible and exclusive wedding venues with sublime ocean views or book out the entire resort and make it their own personal paradise. Have a ceremony on our pier, cocktails at the Azure lounge and your reception on our beachfront lawn; couples design their dream destination wedding and our wedding concierge team make it happen.
