This resort hotel is on the Andaman coast in the Bang Tao Beach area, less than 30 minutes from Phuket’s International airport.
It is a 5* hotel with excellent facilities for your wedding and for your honeymoon, with additional sports and activities, from scuba diving to elephant riding, in the immediate location.
Choose from a Western or Budhist ceremony, either on the beach, on the wide grassing lawns leading to the beach, in one of the restaurants or in the nearby Laguna wedding chapel.
Beach weddings are not generally available during the wet season, partly because the weather cannot be relied on, but also because a lot of the beach is washed away at that time of year.
All of the wedding packages are made up of 5 ceremonies and include the following:
Round trip limousine transfer from the airport
Flower decorations, bridal bouquet, up to 10 corsages and a flower arch
Drum procession to the wedding
Attendance of a baby elephant for 1 hour
Services of a photographer including printing of 100 photos and a CD-Rom
Champagne breakfast and floral decoration in the bedroom or on the balcony
The current wedding package rates are 72000 Thai Bahts – which is around £1400.
• The ceremony starts with the lighting of candles and walking down the aisle.

Marriage Registration Ceremony

The Laguna wedding chapel is a beautiful purpose based chapel on the banks of a lake just a few minutes walk from the Dusit Thani which can be hired out for an additional fee of around 25000 Thai Bahts in addition to your wedding package.
As the chapel is shared between all of the Laguna resort hotels it is important to book early if you would like to use it.
