After looking at locations and resorts all of over the world for our wedding, we chose the New Star resort. There were many reasons for our choice. The first and foremost was the attentiveness, patience, promptness and warmth in which Mike, the General Manager helped with our enquiries and made all our wedding decisions stress free and simple. Other reasons included the beauty of the hotel itself, the fact that it was away from the hussle and bussle of Chaweng and the beautiful beach. When we arrived, it was much more than we had imaged or could have hoped for.
Almost every staff member knew us by name, which made us feel part of their family, it was lovely. Everyone, from the GM to the F&B manager and wait staff took time to chat to us and make sure not only us, but all our guests (and there were many) were comfortable and happy. And we were! Oiy, in particular made our stay there extra special.
Throughout our stay at the New Star, we stayed in two different rooms. Firstly, we rested in a beachfront cottage for a few nights on our arrival. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The partially outside bathroom was gorgeous, even if we were on mosquito alert whilst on the loo, it didn't matter! We then moved to a beachfront villa for our wedding night and the remainder of our stay, which was greatly appreciated. It was magical. The rooms are very spacious, private, beautifully furnished, patron friendly and contained everything you could ever want and/or need. Being on the beachfront was breathtaking. The bathroom (outdoor&indoor showers) was huge and wonderful.
It's hard to describe in words just how magical our wedding day was. Mike and his team did everything in their power to make sure everything ran smoothly and every detail was taken care of according to our desires and to the highest quality, from the flowers to the brilliant photographer and the incredible food and cocktails. It was the only day we were there that it rained, and it actually poured, but somehow, it made it better. The staff were on hand with umbrellas for each and every guest and the team shifted the entire reception (for 50 people) to the restaurant at a moments notice, without anyone knowing there were any problems. The food was delicious and all our guests commented on how magical the whole event was. We take our hat off to all the staff for making our day so incredible!
Every meal we ate at the New Star was brilliant. Whether it was b/fast at the Lime restaurant, an eventful buffet dinner on the beach or a meal by the pool, every meal was world class, met with excellent service. I highly recommend the prawn pad thai, grilled snapper burger and the ceasar salad from Chill by the pool - YUM and I miss them. There were too many delicous cocktails to list here for you to try - just go for it!
We are so grateful for every experience we had at this resort. We want to thank each and every member of staff from the General Manager to the F&B Manager, the massage therapists, the wait staff and the concierge team for giving us the fondest of memories that was our wedding. We cant wait to return for our anniversary and see all your smiling faces again!
Thank you to everyone at The New Star resort, Tim and Tam x
