The wedding of Kunal Samtani to Divya Vaswani was the largest wedding ever held in Thailand with five days of festivities held on the resort’s 118-rai (19-hectare) grounds on Nov 28 through Dec 3. A 3,200-square-metre air-conditioned marquee, Thailand’s largest, was built for the wedding celebrations.

The wedding entourage occupied the entire resort of 615 rooms, villas, all function space and F&B outlets. Guests at the wedding reception were entertained by a number of world-class performances by international artistes, Akon, Jason Derulo, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan.
