Under the White Sand Blue Sea Group, Khaolak Emerald Beach Resort & Spa hosts a range of select accommodations that will meet all you and your wedding guests’ needs. Its Deluxe Grand Family room is a comfortable 62-square-metre that can host friends or a family of four, with either a garden or lagoon view of the resort. The 50-square-metre Deluxe Room has a wonderful view of the resort’s lush greenery, creating a private and cosier environment. Elevating this luxurious experience, the resort boasts the Deluxe Pool View and Deluxe Pool Access rooms (both near the resort’s Taonga Surf Club), and the Beach Front Villas and Beach Front Pool Villas.

The latter provides private balconies and breathtaking views of the sea, just steps away from the white sands of Khao Lak Beach. As for the resort’s culinary treasures, nestled by the tranquil lagoon, there is the Turtle Restaurant, where a blend of Thai and international flavours sway together in contemporary harmony. Right on the ocean’s edge lies the resort’s Wai Wai Restaurant, serving a fusion of international favourites and local cuisine, with an assortment of fresh seafood. But if you’re looking for café vibes, there is always the lobby’s Coffee Cup, serving more than just your caffeine fix. Take a step further and dive into the beachfront cocktails of the Taonga Bar, all expertly crafted to compliment the coastal energy and soothing sea breeze.

Last but not least, Khaolak Emerald can be a dream destination for a beach wedding in Phang Nga, providing picturesque seaside views that can become an ideal environment to create lasting memories. What makes this particular destination more desirable is the romance behind modern and traditional Thai and Indian ceremonies. Newlyweds and guests are encouraged to immerse themselves in the diverse, rich and beautiful cultures that make Thailand a melting pot. What better way to fully express love and affection, and celebrate a union between families and friends, then a beachside wedding to remember? We sat down with Pongsakorn Ketaprapakorn, Owner of Khaolak Emerald Beach Resort & Spa, to paint a better picture that will solidify why the resort should be a go-to destination for hosting weddings.
