When Jan Kirchhoff and Heidi Jensen held their wedding reception at Centara Anda Dhevi Resort & Spa Krabi on April 18, 2012, they were the first couple to tie the knot at the newly-opened resort. The newlyweds, who are now back home in their home country of Denmark, said, however, that the resort made the perfect setting for their big day, and that they plan to revisit as soon as they can to relive their happy memories.
“We were staying in Krabi last year at another resort, and at that time, the Centara was just the first day opening,” said Jan, “We went to take a look, and were so impressed by the building and its setting that we felt it could be ideal for our wedding.
“So we contacted the management and discovered that Centara is a very large and experienced hotel company, and that they have professionals organizing their weddings. That gave us the confidence we needed, so we went ahead and made all our arrangements with them.”
Heidi says that the level of service given by the staff was an enormous advantage.
“Every bride is nervous about anything that might go wrong at any time during her big day, but the professionalism and the absolute warmth and friendliness of the staff gave me and everyone else complete confidence,” she said.
“Our family members and our guests all agree that it was a marvelous occasion, a wonderful day,” she added.
