What can Rocky’s offer that other resorts can’t?
The food is fantastic, they've hired some top chefs. The staff really looked out for our best interests fulfilling many of our requests and even sent out a squad to rescue us from the ocean. The room and decor are gorgeous, with something going on all the time. Unfortunately we went during the time of year when the beach is swallowed by the sea, but the Martin can't control that. If you want a quiet location away from the crowds, this is where you want to go. Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends
How many weddings per day do you do?
We only ever do one wedding per day.
How do I secure my wedding date?
A non refundable B20,000 deposit is required to secure your wedding date. We cannot confirm any reservation without a deposit.
Is there an option for bride & groom to get ready separately?
Yes! If some of the wedding guests are staying at the resort, such as the best man or family, then the groom will usually ‘borrow’ one of these rooms to get ready in. The bride will get ready in the room that they booked. Another option, especially if the bride and groom would like to follow ‘traditional’ wedding procedures, is to book a separate room to stay the night before the ‘big day’, keeping this room until the ceremony begins.
Do we have a wedding rehearsal?
When you arrive at the resort, the final meeting will be arranged with you and your personal wedding planner to fine tune all the wedding and celebration details. Your wedding planner will take you through a ‘walk through’. Our wedding Celebrant will have a pre-meeting with you to discuss the order of the ceremony (i.e. where the groom, best man, bridesmaids has to stand, if there will be readings or poems from your family etc, etc.)
How many days before the wedding do you recommend we arrive at the resort?
We prefer to have the bride & groom with us about 3 days or more prior to the wedding.
How long does it usually take to process the documentation before we can get married legally
We need at least 6-8 working days (excluding the day of arrival) prior to the wedding in order for us to arrange the necessary translation, documentation and courier to Samui . Please note that embassies are closed for both Thai and its own national holidays. However, the bride and groom will only require 2 working days in Bangkok to handle the essentials, after which, our legal representatives will handle the rest. You can then come down to Samui to relax and travel some more around Thailand before arriving with us to celebrate your wedding.
Is a religious or non-religious ceremony a legal marriage?
Religious or non-religious ceremonies are symbolic ceremonies and are not legally binding. This symbolic ceremony allows the couple to express their love in their own way, exchange of vows, rings and most importantly, kisses!!!
Why should I choose a wedding theme?
It is necessary to pick a style because it will help you choose your dress, venue and many other aspects.
Most of our wedding guests have children coming with them, do you have a baby sitting service on the wedding day as well as during the reception?
Yes, we offer a baby sitting service. If there are quite a lot of children in the party, what we usually do is to assign a room for the children where they can play games, watch DVD, etc.
What are the normal arrangements for beverages?
Typically, the bride & groom will set a budget, based on drinks being sold on a-la-carte basis. Charges will be based on actual consumption and menu prices. Our bar staff will advise the bride & groom before the limit is reached. The bride & groom may also choose to limit the choice of drinks, to house wine, beer and soft drinks, for example.
What happens if there is an unavoidable circumstance that I need to cancel my wedding?
The initial deposit is nonrefundable however, we can credit this to the new date for up to six months after your initially booked wedding date in case you only want to postpone your wedding celebration. The reason being is the fact that we only organize one wedding a day. As soon as you book your date, we will then turn down all other wedding couple who wishes to get married on the same date you chose.
If further deposits (after the initial deposit) have been payed they are refundable based on our wedding cancellation policy, which can be found on our rates page. room rates
