Sava Villa Natai Beach Phang Nga Wedding

Mel and Jay had an incredible Sikh ceremony at Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha Phuket (Wat Sikh). Their wedding reception was at Sava Villa Natai Beach Phang Nga.
The couple prepared themselves for their sacred Sikh ceremony at Sava Villa, located on the picturesque Natai Beach in Phang Nga. We then embarked on our journey to the magnificent Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha Phuket (Wat Sikh), situated in the heart of Phuket Town. At their Sikh wedding ceremony, Mel & Jay took four rounds around the Guru Granth Sahib. Their wedding guests recited wedding hymns, and the couple received blessings.
Upon our return, everyone present took a refreshing dip in the villa’s pool, seizing the opportunity to cool off from the tropical heat. The wedding ceremony was on a sprawling lawn overlooking the turquoise ocean. We then had time for a wedding photoshoot at Natai Beach against the backdrop of the sparkling waters. The wedding reception and an unforgettable party in a grand marquee went on late into the night!

Sikhs in Phuket

Did you know that Phuket, a popular tourist destination in Thailand, has a rich Sikh history that dates back almost a century? The first wave of Sikhs arrived in Phuket as early as the 1920s when they worked in the booming tin-mining industry under the British Army.
Some of these Sikhs also worked at the provincial court as mediators and translators. They purchased a large plot of land where they built their own Gurdwara, or place of worship. The first Gurdwara was a humble wooden structure later reinforced with concrete.

Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha Phuket

In 2001, the Gurdwara underwent a major renovation into a magnificent three-story building. The second wave of Sikhs arriving in Phuket were business-minded individuals, many of whom were born and raised in Thailand.
Today, there are around 40 Sikh families in Phuket, most of whom are now in their second or third generation. The Sikh community in Phuket continues to thrive and uphold its proud heritage. So the next time you visit Phuket, visit their beautiful Gurdwara and learn more about their fascinating history!


Sikhism is a religion and a way of life that emphasizes the importance of experiencing, loving, and living with God. The Sikhs believe that by remembering and eulogizing the Lord in every moment, they can teach His virtues and become like Him.
This practice of remembering and resonating with the Omnipresent One is known as Naam Japna, and it is one of the three key principles of Sikhism. The second principle is Kirat Karna, which emphasizes the importance of working with honest labor and not cheating others. According to Sikhism, dignity comes from being responsible rather than escaping from the world.
The third principle of Sikhism is Wand Chhakna, which means sharing one’s earnings with the underprivileged. This act of giving is a sign of God and further bonds humanity as children of the same Father. Sikhism teaches that by serving the Creator through His creation, one can experience the love and presence of God.
