Villa Value

Stand Out From The Crowd

Pawanthorn Luxury Estate is a wedding venue with a difference.  I realise that when looking for your perfect venue this is probably something you have heard lots…but hear me out: Complete privacy; 5 star luxury accommodation; full-time staff waiting on your every need; a purposely designed estate to cater for every wedding wish you and your guests might have…and best of all? It comes at a reasonable price!


I’m not going to lie, you will probably find some hotels for cheaper – you will most likely find beach bars for cheaper…but when it comes to value for money, it’s a steal. Let me take you around the estate and help you envision your possible wedding day there…


The estate composes of three indulgently designed and spacious 4-bedroom villas; seven sleek and stylish 1-bedroom pool villas and a sprawling communal garden and terrace leading on to your private beach. Being the only villa set in the striking secluded bay, it offers complete privacy for you and your wedding party.


Prior to the wedding you and your guests will really be able to get into the holiday mood – instead of just turning up on the day, you’ll be able to spend quality time together; relaxing by one of the many pools, barbequing in the garden, or just having fun preparing for your big day! The full time staff will ensure you have everything you need from a sneaky poolside snack to a personal masseuse to rid you of any pre-wedding day nerves!


On the wedding day itself everything is taken care of on-site, meaning that you get to see the transformation first hand. The florist, stylists, caterers and countless staff, employed to ensure your wedding is perfect, will arrive in the morning and begin preparing for the day. Your personal wedding planner will also be on hand all through the day to coordinate all the events and ensure everything runs smoothly.


Ceremonies can be held on the beach or in the Villa Gardens – both locations providing a stunning venue as you say your vows. The beach, offers a more tropical, exotic feel while the garden, gives a whimsical romantic twist to your Thai wedding.  As with all our weddings we offer a full flower decoration package and you have a wide choice of ceremony set-ups to choose from.


Following your celebratory post-ceremony glass of champagne you will step away with your photographer to take in the remarkable bay, dramatic rocks and turquoise sea – such a jaw-dropping back drop always ensures your photographs are unforgettable.

Meanwhile your guests will be well cared for; cold towels, cocktails and canapés are served, whether they decide to mingle on the sand or relax in the shaded gazebos.


All of the additional options offered by Faraway Weddings are also available at Pawanthorn – the only hard part is deciding what you’d like to have! Will you surprise your guests by making your official entrance as Bride and Groom on an elephant; create an authentic Thai atmosphere with some traditional Khim music or perhaps have a live band entertain the guests before dinner.


Dinner is set-up on the two central, covered terraces overlooking the beach – the perfect arrangement to eat out under the stars while still being protected from any surprise showers! The third terrace area is transformed into your party dance-floor for some after-dinner fun. Here we can stage live bands, DJs or Traditional Thai dancers – whatever you choose to add to your magical night.


If you fancy something a bit more fiery ; fire lanterns, fireworks and fire dancers can all be organised on the beach for your entertainment. With a Pawanthorn wedding you don’t have to worry about cutting the party short either;  your bar will remain open until 2am if desired – plenty of time for dancing then!


Although there are many stunning villas on Koh Samui with Pawanthorn it’s the small things that really make the difference. The fact that this Estate was designed purposefully with weddings and large events in mind means that everything, down to the smallest detail, has been thought of.

For example, a private toilet block at the side of the villa, means that guests do not need to traipse through bedrooms to get to the bathroom; a separate catering area to the side of the villa ensures that the guests are not impacted by the noises and smells of cooking and finally, something sadly lacking in many villas, is the full back-up bad weather options for both ceremony and dining.


To have your wedding at Pawanthorn the minimum booking requirement is the Indian Villa for a minimum of three nights and the Chinese villa for the wedding night. If you’d like to take advantage of Pawanthorn’s other accommodation options, and have your guests stay with you at the estate, there is also the option of the third Thai Villa (also  4 bedrooms) and the 7 pool villas – all one bedroom with private pools. The large villas start at 25,300baht per night while the Pool villas are 3,680baht per night.

 This is cheaper than most reasonable three and four star resorts for a basic hotel room and believe me you’ll be getting a whole lot more than that here!

With the large villas on first reflection you may think this is a little expensive. However, if you split the cost between 4-couples, that works out at 6,325 baht per couple. This is cheaper than most reasonable three and four star resorts for a basic hotel room and believe me you’ll be getting a whole lot more than that here.


Your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience. Make it memorable; make it unique; make it Pawanthorn.
