How about tying the knot amid the peaceful, green surroundings of Amphawa at asita eco-resort?
By Percy Roxas
A new resort in Amphawa, Samut Songkhram, stands out not only because it is setting a new benchmark in service and facilities in Amphawa but also because of its absolutely eco-friendly character. This is asita eco-resort, a new intimate boutique property consisting of just three traditional Thai houses and 20 villas; perfect not only as a holiday haven but even more perfect for wedding ceremony and celebrations.
The boutique property is perfect for intimate affairs, especially for “green” Thai weddings. Couples can get married in the traditional way, with morning Thai ceremony in an authentic Thai house, before enjoying an afternoon tea party outdoors or indoors in the air-conditioned meeting room. Evening wedding parties can also be easily arranged in the outdoors or in any of the three connected venues (Thai house, outdoor along the river, and meeting room). The indoor meeting room can fit up to 200 guests while up to 1,000 people can fit outdoors.
The resort has its own team of professional chefs, and service and event organizer, who can take care of every detail: lighting design, sound system, bands, cue running, create theme party, master of ceremony, script and decorations – you name it. The wedding buffet will include a salad bar from its own organic garden, along with fruits, a variety of cakes, soups, main courses, live cooking stations, herbal drinks, tea, and coffee.
In fact, asita eco-resort can easily meet professional requirements for any kind of functions and special occasions (from groups of 10 to groups of 200) – and in the eco-friendly way as well. Guests are served in a rowing boat and delivered to the porch of the meeting room. Meetings are more relaxing and revitalizing because of the hundred of shady trees to rest on during breaks.
To top it all, the resort ensures a great sleep after all the special occasions and events. Guests can expect clean and comfortable beds, with four pillows in all types of rooms. There’s a big sofa bed and big bathroom, and topper on the bed made from feather. Internet coverage and speed is more than adequate. Air-con is adequately cool and quiet. Really, everything that can be expected in a tourist resort room is there and working properly – even breakfast is good value.
And with many tourist attractions in the province just close by — the famous Amphawa Floating market is just 10 minutes away, and many good local restaurants surround the resort as well – the entire party can enjoy a holiday blast during their stay.
Guests will love the resort’s green and peaceful setting, which is enhanced by countless pine trees surrounding it and an enormous canal nearby that helps recreate the yonder years of simple but elegant Thai upcountry lifestyle. But here’s a twist: it is run by a veteran team experienced in managing five-star hotels of international caliber and built with facilities equivalent to four-star hotels.
Thus staff is exceptionally courteous, efficient and helpful, providing guests with an ideal retreat – whether for weddings or otherwise — just one hour from Bangkok.
Truly every detail has been taken care of to ensure that every guest will enjoy an unforgettable holiday without worrying whether their fun has been infringing too much on keeping a healthy, better environment for us all — whether they’re here for a green wedding or just a pleasure holiday stay!
