The Ritz-Carlton is known for its superlative service and incredible resorts, so it’s no surprise that the Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve makes the list of dream destinations for couples.

Flanked by Krabi’s stunning limestone cliffs, the resort offers a peaceful and photogenic setting—picture secluded ceremony venues, 54 private villas and views of the Andaman Sea. The resort, which can host up to 120 people for a wedding, is also home to some of Krabi’s best restaurants.

Inspired by the nearby Ujung water palace in the east of Bali, Amankila features a three-tiered pool that cascades down the front of the resort. The 34 suites take a modern approach to the traditional Balinese beach house, and couples can rent out the entire property for weddings of up to 90 guests.

Amankila is home to 11 different ceremony and reception venues. There’s a picturesque coconut grove leading to the oceanfront Beach Club, a private volcanic black sand beach, a photogenic pool, a bonfire on the beach—the options are endless.

The Nam Hai has just emerged from an extensive facelift with updated interiors, open-air pavilions and a zen vibe.

The newly renovated villas make the most of the idyllic surrounds, with outdoor showers and ocean views, and some have their own private pools. For couples who want to stay with their families—or put up their relatives in style—there’s a regal 7,100sqft villa with five bedrooms.
