One of the big advantages of a Sofitel wedding is the Grand Ballroom and pre-function area with a combined capacity of 500 people. Located on the lobby level of the resort, this is the largest pillar-less ballroom in Krabi, a glamorous Krabi wedding venue with twinkling chandeliers hanging from the high-vaulted ceiling.
For a more intimate Krabi wedding venue, the Grand Ballroom can be divided into four separate function rooms. Two smaller function rooms, Phokeethra 1 and Phokeethra 2, are also located on the lobby level, which makes them suitable for use in conjunction with the ballroom.
Phokeethra 1 can seat up to 40 guests for a Krabi wedding banquet, and 60 guests theatre style, while Phokeethra 2 can fit a maximum of 20 for a banquet and 30 theatre style. Between them, the ballroom and the two function rooms offer the most flexible gay wedding Krabi venues.
A Sofitel wedding does of course offer a Krabi wedding package that can be tailored to meet the demands of any wedding, including an LGBT wedding in Krabi. The Krabi wedding package can include everything from floral displays and bouquets through to video team, spa treatments, preparation room, and live music.
