Miskawaan has a prime position on the shores of Koh Samui in southern Thailand. Hidden amidst labyrinthian cobbled lanes are eight spectacular villas prettily identified by the names of indigenous Thai flowers such as hibiscus, frangipani and waterlily. These lavish villas are the epitome of luxury and exemplary service.
Health and harmony are at the heart of Miskawaan. There is no better place for a bride to prepare for her wedding day and focus on her beauty from the inside, out. Miskawaan is a unique destination that boasts a highly personalised approach to integrative wellness. The resident doctors and nurses are on hand to prescribe various health-boosting infusions such as their signature MPV, precision formulated in the Miskawaan laboratory. Administered intravenously, the multivitamins and minerals relieve pre-wedding stress, rid your body of toxins, boost immunity and make your skin glow.
Your villa is expansive and envelops a swimming pool overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and neighbouring island, Koh Phangan. You’ll have the luxury of various zones within the grounds, such as access to the white sandy beach fringed with swaying palms, a large dining area for alfresco dining and barbeque evenings, a small sala for relaxing and perfectly manicured lawns for sunbathing. Inside is a fully-staffed kitchen, open plan dining and sitting room perfect for bridal party gatherings.
Your private butler and concierge team have seemingly endless offerings for your wedding retreat. The resident head chef, Eddy Choungsomboon has an extraordinary vision and grows his own herbs, fruits and vegetables to ensure that they are free of pesticides. He believes that eating clean and healthy food is far from dull; he melds flavours from the orient with superfoods and colourful edible flowers to keep you healthy. His trusted farmers supply hormone-free meat, and local fishermen bring fresh sea-to-shore fish and seafood each day. Eddy’s menus are harmoniously created without added refined sugar and are served without carbohydrates.
Miskawaan strives to provide a zero-mile service to each of its guests, and they use tried and tested suppliers who are a mere walk away from the resort. Your butler can arrange massages, body scrubs and facials with artisanal handcrafted products from Samui coconuts and homegrown essential oils. Yoga instructors can practice sunrise or sunset salutations in your private garden or on the beach, meditation practitioners guide you through positive affirmations and provide a sense of calm before your big day, or if you prefer something more energetic, the butlers can even arrange a beach boot camp.
Relax into perfection. The Thai-inspired villas have a distinct nod to the magical culture of the Kingdom whilst having all the trappings expected of modern luxury. The interiors are calm white and taupe punctuated with soft greys and black. The furnishings are made from sustainable teak and decorated with handcrafted basket ware and cushions made by the hill tribes in northern Thailand. Miskawaan is intentionally kind to the planet and uses organic products where possible.
The Miskawaan team is gentle and kind and will create a cocoon of wellness as you approach your wedding day. If you’d like to chat about staying at Miskawaan or find out more about their health programmes, please visit www.miskawaan.com or www.miskawaanhealth.com.
