1. What can you offer that other resorts can’t?

Privacy, exclusivity and our personal touch! Lipa Lodge Beach Resort sits well away from any other resort and in effect has its own ‘private beach’ with absolutely stunning views. You can also take over the whole resort if you wish and have it exclusively for you and your guests. And over the last 12 years we have helped more than a thousand couples celebrate the beginning of their married life together. When you stay with us you are a part of our family.

3. Does our wedding have to be legal?

No it does not. Thai law states that a wedding ceremony is permitted regardless of actual marital status. Some couples choose to get legally married in their home country first. And others choose our Legal Wedding Document Service and have both the legal paperwork completed and the ceremony here on Ko Samui.

We can cater to around 50 people very comfortably and we have a large garden area beside the beach as well as a long terrace overlooking the sea.

6. How many days before the wedding ceremony do you recommend that we arrive at the resort?

We would prefer that you check-in 2-3 days before the wedding so that we can go over last minute details. And it also gives you some time to relax and acclimatize before the big day.

7. What’s the best time of year to come to Ko Samui to get married?

Almost every month has long periods of very sunny weather. Around April and May tend to be the very hottest and November and early December are the traditional ‘rainy season’ times. However, the weather is one of the very few things that we can’t control. There’re plenty of websites that record previous years weather on Ko Samui and that also have long-range forecasts. We can’t absolutely guarantee a hot, sunny day for your wedding but in our experience over the last 12 years there have been very few ceremonies that have been interrupted by rain.

8. Can we e-mail you if we have any more questions?

Yes of course, please do. We will get back to you with an answer as quickly as possible.
