Wedding, March 18th 2013

Dear Urs, and Chef in the Jungle Team,

We are finally back from our honeymoon, which was great.

We really wanted to thank you for the amazing catering that you did for our wedding on March 18th 2013 in Koh Samui.

All the dishes were delicious. The king prawn was cooked to perfection and the salad was very tasty. The duck was so tender that it melted in the mouth, and the vegetables were very well cooked and tasty. The dessert was refreshing, and delicious.

Everybody agreed on the meal being fabulous. My family still speaks of it now!

But I also wanted to thank you for everything that you did for us. All the emails that we exchanged were a lot of work for you, but all this contributed to make our evening magical.

Thanks to you and your family for the testing of the diner at your home 2 days before the wedding. Thanks for listening to all the small details about salt and sugar : you did everything as I would hope it to be.

Your team of waiters was very professional and the service was just perfect. They were smiling all the time.

The head barman made the most delicious cocktails I've ever tried! Everybody enjoyed them a great deal! Especially the Basilicum!!! Definitely a hit!

Thus, I can only recommend you and your team with all my hearth to anybody wishing to organise a wedding or another event on Koh Samui.

Chef in the Jungle are professionals and they care about you.

Thanks again for everything,
Hope to see you again,
Yaelle and Hugues

My wife and I have prepared well over a year for our destination wedding in Thailand and we have finally picked Villa Kalyana at Koh Samui through our very helpful wedding planner Khun Aey at Dreamcatcher Events. We booked the entire villa plus the newly-constructed bungalow extension which altogether consisted of 8 bungalows and 5 rooms.

We had ~20 friends and family members staying there for 3 nights and we had an absolutely memorable and fun time there. Trying to find this place off the main road may be a bit of a challenge for some esp. when you rent a car and drive there yourself, but roads in Koh Samui gets easier to memorize after a couple of days. But being off the beaten track means that the villa has great privacy, and having access to a beach that it shares with the adjacent Villa Sairee means that you pretty much get the entire beach by yourself.

The swimming pool in the middle of the giant backyard became our daytime hangout place, where friends just dip in with a beer and chat. The giant sitting room table beside the kitchen became our meal time gathering place. All in all, Villa Kalyana provides a cozy family home style accommodation away from home.

On the night of the wedding ceremony, the banquet lawn was decorated as my wife had designed and presented an amazing backdrop to the entire evening. Dance floor (or rather dance space since we simply danced on the grass) was set up next to the dinner tables with DJ and open bar. After a few minutes of firework on the beach and releasing the sky lantern, we turned the afterparty to the pool where everyone jumped in. We literally set up a mini bar on the island in the middle of the pool. Another good reason why having a pool beside the dinner banquet is convenient.

I would definitely recommend my friends who have a big group of friends or family who want to spend a couple of days in a cozy family style place. It is not very close to the bustling districts of Chaweng and Bophut but it provides for great privacy and the pristine beach and wilderness of the south side of island.
