My fiancé and I both based in Australia arranged our recent wedding at the Renaissance Resort in Phuket. It was the perfect middle ground with our family and friends based in Australia and Europe.
We viewed the property one year prior and dealt with Toei from the Sales Team who was extremely helpful and detailed during our contracting stage.
From this point on our Event Manager was Kate - extremely professional and very helpful with our endless requests!
Arriving to the property 6 days prior to the wedding we were extremely impressed, the property was even more beautiful than we remembered, it had become far more established since opening the year prior.
We really couldn't fault anything!
The friendly welcoming service was certainly evident on arrival and continued throughout, the staff are genuinely happy to assist with any request you may have (all of our guests agreed).
Upon arrival we were taken to our beautiful pool villa for private check-in. A pool villa is a must for the wedding couple and your families.
4 days prior to the event we met with Kate our Event Manager, and Jason Neull the Hotel's General Manager. They covered absolutely everything so we were able to spend the days leading up to our wedding relaxing with our guests.
The day before our wedding the hotel booked a glorious two hour couples treatment for my fiancé and I, an absolutely stunning spa with all the best treatments.
57 people attended our wedding, the ceremony was held in the afternoon on the grass area by the beach. The area was set with a white canopy, Thai and Singapore orchids lining the isle, very elegant. Our photos were taken on site around the Hotels architectural designed buildings and down on the very beautiful and private Mai Khao beach. The reception was held in Takieng restaurant (normally the Thai restaurant), this space worked extremely well with the bar and buffet set-up out doors.
Most of the above was included in the wedding package, we did find our own hair dresser Kate www.kateshairstudiophuket.com Kate and her team were great, I arranged a hair trial prior to arrival and manicure and pedicures at the hotel for me and my bridal party pre-wedding.
Around the resort - every food outlet was wonderful, most meals were taken in the Sand Box and Takieng! Outside of the resort most of our group discovered the local Thai restaurant just ten minutes walk to the left of the property (when looking at the ocean). The entire group not only made good use of the resorts 'Quan Spa' but also went for a daily local massage on the beach only 400thb!
We would highly recommend the Hotel, Management including the General Manager Jason Neull were alway present, The Hotel is extremely well run and is a credit to Jason and his team.
