Akaryn Hotel Group, the innovative hospitality company with a portfolio of boutique luxury hotels and resorts in Thailand, is sharing the love with a series of unique wedding and proposal experiences for couples at its properties in Thailand.
The Group’s creative operations team has come up with a selection of magical moments that are all about popping the ultimate question in a dynamic and decidedly different style, including an underwater gesture of love, a floating proposal, a request unveiled from a fisherman’s net in the sea.
Lovers ready to take the plunge can head to the stylish rooftop swimming pool at akyra Manor Chiang Mai to propose marriage. The bride or groom can be given a waterproof sign to hold up against the pool’s uber-cool glass wall when they dive below the surface so their life partner-to-be gets a delightful surprise while sitting at the bar. If the answer is ‘yes’, the couple can celebrate with and an afternoon tea set for two, or make a toast to their future with Champagne cocktails at RISE bar with its poolside sofas and funky in-pool sun beds.
At another of the Group’s urban icons, akyra Thonglor Bangkok, lovebirds can make an original and indulgent proposal with a private dinner for two on the swimming pool deck overlooking amazing skyscraper views. On special request, the chef will prepare an exclusive dinner and the moment can be further enhanced with a fun romantic proposal with a floating inflatable giant diamond gently drifts towards the couple carrying a sign that says, “Would you marry me?”
To take advantage of its stunning seaside location, romantic hopefuls staying in one of the rooms or private villas at Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa or akyra Beach Club Phuket can arrange for local fishermen to discreetly enter the shallow waters with their authentic shrimp net, and as they come closer to the guests, lift it up so that the words “Will You Marry Me?” pop up on a large piece of wood as an unforgettable catch of the day.
To complement the choice of stunning settings on offer for couple’s looking to exchange their vows and celebrate with friends and family, Aleenta and akyra Hotels and Resorts also provide a choice of inclusive or customisable wedding experiences that offer excellent value when compared with the cost of getting married in many other countries around the world.
“From our hip beachfront resorts to the urban sophistication of our city hotels, an intuitive and creative approach to hospitality is at the heart of every guest experience,” says Anchalika Kijkanakorn, Founder and CEO of Akaryn Hotel Group.
“This sense of creativity runs through everything from our room designs to our culinary concepts, from our wellness offerings to our beach parties, which is why we’re giving the age-old tradition of asking for a loved one’s hand in marriage a contemporary fairy-tale twist,” she adds.
At the luxury Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa in Phang Nga, the focus is on personalised weddings with every detail carefully considered, from the ceremony and reception style to the luxurious private venue, all enhanced by a range of special details designed to make each couple’s day unforgettable. The resort is the perfect location for an intimate wedding or to celebrate a special occasion with a small group of family and friends, on one of the most beautiful beaches of Thailand.
A short stroll down the beautiful beach, a sultry seaside vibe has been crafted that perfectly suits couples that want to combine a romantic beach wedding with a pulsating party at sister property akyra Beach Club Phuket. Couples can host their wedding celebration on the resort’s secluded beach, or in the exotic garden enveloped by southern Thailand’s tropical beauty, framed by lingering sunsets and stylish surrounds.
The AKARYN Hotel Group also recently launched the sustainable wedding at Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi Resort & Spa – allowing couples to beautifully integrate an eco-sensitivity within their memorable celebration. This includes a mangrove planting ceremony along with a trip to the local wildlife centre – all aligned with the organic and green ethos that has been the cornerstone of the resort’s philosophy for the past 15 years.
“The akyra and Aleenta brands were created to offer refreshing originality and that resonates through the extraordinary experiences we create for our guests,” explains Ms. Kijkanakorn. “Our unique proposals and wedding experiences are designed to offer more than the luxury of convenience. The aim is to inspire romantic memories, and photos, that last a lifetime.”
