The Faraway Villa, an inspirational Thailand wedding venue.
The Faraway Thailand Wedding Venue
The Faraway Villa is located on the peaceful and serene west coast of Koh Samui on Lipa Noi beach. Famed for its spectacular sunsets, Lipa Noi beach is situated away from the busier east and north coast tourist resort areas.
Faraway Villa is controlled by Faraway Weddings and used exclusively as a private Thailand wedding venue for Faraway Wedding experiences. It’s the perfect beachfront venue providing the kind of privacy and discretion synonymous with a Faraway Wedding Experience. The white-sandy beach, the established and stylish gardens and stone terraced areas provide an idyllic island backdrop, and also offer exceptionally practical grounds in which to perform the ceremony and hold the wedding reception.
This wedding venue has been renovated and improved each year to increase its specific functionality as a dedicated Thailand wedding venue. These improvements include the fact that the villa no longer offers any overnight accommodation, allowing you and your guests to stay wherever suits your individual preferences and budgets. There’s a dressing room with en-suite bathroom and hair-dressing and make-up stations to provide a comfortable and functional preparation area for the bridal party. There’s also a dressing room dedicated for the groom’s party, including a bed in case anyone is not feeling well or for children needing an evening nap.
The concept of this Thailand wedding venue is to provide a stunning outdoor location for a perfect tropical beach wedding, whilst having back-up options in case of rainy weather. In most cases the wedding ceremony takes place on the beach, with the reception held within the garden terrace area where there is also a large covered Sala. There’s an outdoor bar area and a beachfront dance-floor to allow you to marry, dine and celebrate the party under the stars. The venue also benefits from an additional indoor function room providing a valuable alternative space in the event of rain, or if you would prefer to dine in an air-conditioned room. This room has a white-draped, vaulted ceiling and folding glass doors facing the ocean. Other than the dressing rooms and the function room the rest of the building is made up of staff preparation areas. The idea being that the guests enjoy the gardens and beach more than the villa itself. All of our beach wedding experiences offer the use of the Faraway Villa from 12 midday, allowing time for the bridal party to arrive early and get ready in the calm and relaxed beachside atmosphere. The ceremony usually occurs at around 5pm when the heat of the sun starts to wane and just before the spectacular Samui sunset.
This private dedicated Thailand wedding venue creates not only an idyllic tropical beach location for a wedding, but also practical and flexible indoor areas to ensure the smooth running of the wedding, whatever the weather or the needs of wedding party.
