While other parts of the world head into autumn, in Bangkok, quite the opposite happens. During this time of year, the rainy season dies down and the days grow cooler and less humid. Leaves don’t fall, they radiate an even more magnificent green, making Thailand’s version of autumn a rather desirable time to tie the knot.
And an attractive wedding spot, for those seeking more private weddings, would have to be the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. Steeped in the heart of the city yet simultaneously tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, the hotel’s lush gardens, surrounded by the hotel’s beautiful free-form swimming pool, provide a perfect retreat for smaller, intimate weddings. There’s no need to leave the city for a resort location when the hotel offers such a unique resort-style venue with unrivalled five-star luxury service and remarkable culinary offerings.
With a strong stream of happy couples who have been pleased with the hotel’s specialized team of wedding planners, many have shown a preference for the peaceful, open-air setting close to Rotunda, the hotel’s tropical pool bar. The venue easily caters for up to 100 guests at a cocktail reception and for 80 seated guests at an engagement or vows ceremony.
In accordance with the individual requests of bride and groom, Siam Kempinski Bangkok is renowned for organising elegant, beautiful fairy-tale engagement and wedding ceremonies, with all the added luxuries. Types of celebration are also varied, as the hotel caters to Thai, Chinese, Indian and western weddings to ensure happy and memorable moments for the couple and guests involved.
As the wedding season in Bangkok is beginning to stir again, there are a number of other hotel venues we would also recommend. The Park Hyatt Bangkok is a noble choice; housed in an iconic building featuring state-of-the-art architecture, the luxury hotel offers incredibly bespoke and tailored services to ensure that everything is as exquisite as can be on the day. The Mandarin Oriental, one of Bangkok’s oldest luxury hotels that sits on the Chao Phraya River, is also another wise choice, especially for those couples seeking a more romantic experience, as the hotel’s pristine interiors, especially those to be found in the Author’s Lounge, offer something very special and unique indeed.
