This is a lesser known wedding venue in Koh Samui. They are not marketed well however they do provide you with options for you wedding. Not a grandiose as the other two resorts described above but still very good and with its North-Eastern location on Samui it does also offer good photo ops at sunset.
Note that when you get married at any of the resorts that these marriages are not legally binding and only serve as the ceremony of the wedding. You will still have to register your marriage in Thailand or at home after the ceremony. For this reason you don’t need to show a letter of affirmation or for that matter any legal papers for your wedding ceremony. Most foreigners merely use these resorts for the ceremony and the breath-taking views for their honeymoon before they legally register the wedding in Thailand or in their home country.
