Celebrations & events at Amanpuri

Host the perfect event

At a traditional Thai Buddhist wedding, the ceremony is often performed by up to five monks who garland bride and groom with fragrant phuang malai, entwined to symbolise the coming together of two individuals. The couple are then blessed with holy water before celebrations fill the air with joy and merriment – a truly sacred occasion which is believed to give every couple the happiest start in their journey together. At Amanpuri – one of the most fabled retreats in South East Asia – guests are invited to create their own customs, incorporating as much or as little convention into their occasion as they wish, ensuring the day is marked with utmost significance.

From the resort’s peaceful peninsula, there are a number of uniquely private locations to host any style of event. Its exquisite oceanside villas and pavilions set amid verdant gardens and coconut palms are ideal for more intimate occasions, while its midnight blue pool and regal sweep of stone steps leading to secluded Pansea Beach, offer a backdrop filled with drama and opulence.

Weddings 

Choose to take inspiration from Amanpuri’s surroundings with traditional Thai music and dancers, elephant rides, and fire and khon (masked) performers for after dark. Alternatively, allow Aman’s expert event planners to bring one’s own vision to life where no request is too big or too small. An aisle spanning the swimming pool offers the bride a dramatic entrance, or a post-dinner fireworks display adds an element of surprise. For those hosting multi-day events, an island-hopping cruise of Phang Nga bay with a beach barbeque provides the perfect opportunity for guests to gather in the days preceding the wedding.
