Firstly, welcome to Forever Lovestruck’s first blog! To get us started, here’s the first instalment of our 3 part guide that covers your very first question…why should I get married on Koh Tao?

Koh Tao - Crystal Clear Waters

When planning your destination wedding the location ought to be both magical and beyond your wildest expectations! Read on to see why we think Koh Tao makes the perfect island wedding destination choice…

They say a picture tells 1000 words…well, welcome to Koh Tao!

Koh Tao really does have it all. From adventure activities, picture perfect landscapes and viewpoints, to beautiful beaches, spas and restaurants there is something here to suit all tastes. You can feast in your private villa with a meal prepared by your own personal chef, or hit Sairee beach to enjoy the thriving social scene. You can get active in the water with SCUBA diving and snorkelling, or explore on land with hikes, rock climbing, abseiling and much more besides. There is so much to cover – you can see now why this blog comes in three parts!

So why Koh Tao as a wedding destination? Koh Tao has real splendour. It lures you in and before you know it you’ll be falling in love with the island – as many who have gone before you can testify! Trust me; it really is as beautiful as you see in all the photos!  Koh Tao has an almost magical air about it, and you will make everlasting memories of your wedding day as well as the holiday time you spend on our little paradise island.  Koh Tao is truly idyllic, making it the perfect place to celebrate your BIG day and your honeymoon!

Koh Tao - A view from the hills
At just 21km squared, the island is relatively small, meaning that you don’t need to travel far to enjoy all that Koh Tao has to offer- you really can get the best of all worlds here. Not only is it easy to navigate, but you can fit so much in! You can chill out on the beach, discover secluded bays, visit the lush jungles, witness breath-taking views and swim in the crystal clear sea – all in just one day!

Options for accommodation are plentiful and suit all budgets. Beachfront hotels, traditional style jungle bungalows, resorts and private villas…there really is something for everyone here.

The list of possible activities for you and your guests is a long one…aside from those already mentioned above there is also yoga, water sports, cliff jumping, trapeze school…and that’s just the beginning. Why not hire your own private speedboat charter and discover Koh Tao’s breath-taking coastline? The possibilities are almost endless! Plus, let’s not forget, Koh Tao is famous for its abundance of aquatic life and for its dive community – so it’s worth considering your diving options in more detail. If you haven’t dived before you can take a try dive or get certified with your PADI Open Water Licence. For divers who are already certified there are advanced courses, specialties and a wide array of dive sites to explore. The options keep on coming way after your feet have left the shoreline!

We will cover the full array of adventure activities in more depth in Part 2, but if you can’t wait that long, read more here.

Thrill seeking aside, Koh Tao is also a great place to chill and relax; and it also presents an outstanding range of possibilities to fully immerse yourselves in the tropical lifestyle with delicious food and drinks. Are you thinking of holding pre and/or post wedding parties? Then look no further! This is another reason why Koh Tao is the perfect wedding destination; whether you’re looking for sunset drinks on the beach, a barbeque/pool party in your own private villa or a scrumptious meal in a top restaurant, Forever Lovestruck has it covered. Intrigued? You should be! More information to follow in Part 3.
