Let us describe something to you — Sapphire waters and white sandy beaches; busy, buzzing cities and nightlife; mountains and trails as far as the eye can see. What do all of these have in common? Thailand’s multifaceted topography has become an easy choice for wanderers from all over the world simply because it has so much to offer and many easy ways to get around.
Likewise, for honeymooners, the options in Thailand are as varied as can be. If you and your partner struggle on activities and where to go, you’re in the right place as we’ve put together some of the top destinations and activities in this post… Just keep on reading.
Bangkok High-Rise Relaxing
137 Pillars Bangkok
Is a jet-set style getaway overlooking the city your kind of style? If so, you might want to choose to settle in at 137 Pillars Bangkok. This five-star Bangkok hotel boasts a generous offering of services, including a personal butler, private taxi service to the BTS metro, and an extra cell phone with 4G internet to use throughout your stay. C’mon, this place is calling your name to enjoy a relaxing honeymoon here.
An insider note: The hotel is just around the corner from Bangkok’s EM-Shopping district. If your days are filled with retail therapy and your evenings filled with a full selection of nightlife and dining options, this is the one for you!
Island and Seaside Getaways
Banyan Tree Phuket
If R&R had a picture in the dictionary, it might look something like Banyan Tree Phuket.
From the resort’s spa to intimate complimentary waterfront dinners, Banyan Tree can and will pull out all the stops to make a honeymoon experience in the villa as unforgettable, engaging, and relaxing as possible. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience.
Anantara Mai Khao Phuket
Alternatively, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket offers a beachside villa resort, with honeymoon rooms delicately nestled over a lush lagoon, providing incredible terraced views throughout the day, especially at sunset. Villas embrace Thai designs in every detail, and each exclusive villa welcomes guests to enjoy their own private pool whenever they’d like.
W Samui Hotel
Let’s get some island life fulfillment. Resting just on the coastline of Koh Samui’s crystal blue waters, W Samui has some pretty sweet amenities — literally. The 77-villa resort offers round-the-clock access to a variety of confections and ice cream, which is just the thing for satisfying a late-night or early morning sweet tooth. Honeymoon room decoration and gifts add the personal touch to make your stay complete.
Pair this up with the resort’s two-hour couples spa treatment at AWAY SPA, a complimentary floating breakfast, and a private dinner at W Beach restaurant, and you can guarantee a calm and quiet stay that hits the spot: your heart. We’re pretty sure you’ll never want to leave this island.
A Northern Thai Star
The northernmost regions of Thailand overflow with a timeless fusion of old and new culture, a melding of flavorful cuisine, and relaxing mountaintop vistas. With all of these attractions and experiences to share in this region, you’d think it would be hard to keep yourself relaxing inside for the entirety of your vacation. Here, it’s just as tempting to stay in and relax for the entirety of your stay as it is to go and explore the city’s history and charm.
Anantara Chiang Mai
Anantara Chiang Mai rests just off of the shore of the calm waters of the Mai Ping River. In addition to the beautiful breakfast spreads at the restaurant buffets, the hotel presents honeymooning guests with the option to enjoy a sparkling wine breakfast in bed. Afterward, enjoy a side-by-side couples massage, which almost guarantees that from morning to night, you’ll be too relaxed to even consider more than a wander around the hotel and a splash in the pool.
If you haven’t had enough pampering by the end of the day, Anantara’s Dining By Design concept invites guests to enjoy a beautifully decorated private candlelight dinner on their riverside lawn, or atop the secluded rooftop deck. The menu for the night can be crafted intimately with your personal chef, while you are carefully tended for every need by one of the hotel butlers.
Endless Thailand Travel Itineraries
At the end of the day, when these choices settle, there’s no clear winner. Every region, resort, and hotel has a particularly magnetic set of styles and charm. With such a wide variety, you might wish your travels could have a bit more professional guidance. Planning a wedding is hard enough!
Solution Time: for every region you’ve read about here, Original Travel offers an all-inclusive way to see them all. The itinerary builders work on a personal basis with each and every planner – giving travelers a way to skip the leg-work of planning, preparing hotel bookings, and travel needs throughout their stay. You can book and take a look at some of their current example itineraries on their website here, and get in contact to make sure every detail of your trip is just the way you want it.
In addition, Travel Beyond is currently offering a multi-city adventure over twelve days through Thailand. The trip kicks off in busy Bangkok, leads to Chiang Mai, and wraps up with some R&R near the sandy shores of Phuket. With three to five days in each region, travelers get the chance to meet the highlights of each area: from viewing the bejeweled historical center of Thailand by night and exploring the best street markets to learning about and enjoying an afternoon at one of Chiang Mai’s elephant rescue and rehabilitation center.
You’ll get plenty of time to explore independently and mix in your own experiences and adventures, too. After a short flight from Chiang Mai to Phuket, you and your significant other can wrap up your trip with some well-deserved relaxation, cooking classes, or couples spa dates, as well as enjoy some time by the beach or the pool.
