THAILAND’S 10 BEST HONEYMOON HOTELS
What makes a hotel honeymoon-worthy? For some couples, it is about breathtaking views. For others, it is all about luxury. Various hotels offer honeymoon packages aimed to make the most memorable time for the lovebirds, including chilled champagne on arrival, a romantic bubble bath for two, rose petals on the bed, a box of chocolate, and a private candle-lit dinner. Lovely turn-down service and breakfast in bed are often offered through the honeymoon package.
There is a growing number of newlyweds who aim at adventure and perfect thrills over pampering relaxation. Whether the honeymooners are after a low-key island escape or sleeping out in a tent—or something else entirely—Thailand has it all.
Honeymooners cannot go wrong with The Barai. Located in Hua Hin, Thailand’s classy beach holiday destination, the award-winning spa resort is a replica of an ancient Khmer temple complex. The entire spa gives an ancient civilization ambiance to achieve physical relaxation and spiritual uplift following their big romantic moment. The Barai Pool Suite, with a private plunge pool, spa treatment area, and dining area, is a beautiful honeymooner choice.
If the way to the lover’s heart is through the eyes, check into Ocean Panorama Pool Villa at Six Senses Yao Noi in Phang Nga Bay. With a terrace for lounging and a private pool, the newlyweds can enjoy old-fashioned romances while gazing out over Phang Nga Bay and soaking up the sunset. The iconic limestone peaks rising from Phang Nga Bay’s waters make a surreal backdrop and a sense of privacy and adventure.
The lovebirds can choose their favorite time of day for the castaway experience. Enjoy a sunrise breakfast cruise and sail to a secluded island for a barbecue lunch prepared by a personal chef. Cherish the intimate sundowner as the sun dips over the horizon viewed from your private island.
On a small cape jutting out into the sea, honeymooners can see beaches stretching on the river’s shores to the west and Bo Phut Beach to the east. A bit farther away is Pha-ngan Island which rises above the Blue Sea. Here you will find W Retreat Koh Samui. There is a consistent vein of modern design in the villas, restaurants, and spas. By day, soak up some rays and refuel with enticing light bites and refreshing drinks at WOOBAR, the iconic Koh Samui bar with a 270-degree infinity ocean view. When night comes, the bar comes alive with technicolored lighting and remix beats. The light and sounds encourage honeymooners to make the most of the beautiful ambiance.
Imagine the newlyweds boarding a private aircraft from Bangkok and landing on the under-the-radar airstrip of Kood Island in Thailand’s East. The lovers will whisk across the secluded crescent bay before slipping into their private pool villa.
Billed as “intelligent luxury,” Soneva Kiri is crafted with recycled wood and surrounded by lush jungle and forest. In some ways, this rustic-yet-luxurious resort is for the Robinson Crusoe of this world. It has 36 thatched villas, each with a private infinity pool, sundeck, and a lavish indoor-outdoor bathroom. Soneva Kiri is ideal for a lost-in-time honeymoon.
Nestled in a dense grove of trees, the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort is tucked away in the Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai. The resort’s famed on-site elephant camp, designed as a traditional mahout village, offers honeymooners unique opportunities to get up close with the gentle giants. Being close to the elephant is a life-changing experience. When the lovers are not out walking and spending time with the pachyderm, they can learn how to cook at Spice Spoons by Anantara Cooking School. For an extra dose of honeymoon magic, spend an unforgettable night observing the elephants in their natural habitat from the comfort of the fully furnished, transparent Jungle Bubble. The luxurious bubble perches on a wooden deck above the forest. It offers uninterrupted views of the elephants under the stunning starlit sky.
Hidden on Phuket’s western edge, The Naka Phuket has 95 glass-built villas cantilevering out from the mountainside. A spacious outdoor pool attached to each of the secluded living spaces offers the couples all the privacy they need. The rooftop spa overlooks the forest and the deep blue sea and is a place to enjoy soothing body scrubs and massages. Dive into the blissful relaxation while the cicadas provide the spellbinding soundtrack.
The newlyweds can unwind in the hotel’s Olympic-sized infinity pool or feel the powder-fine sand between their toes on the wave-lapped private beach.
There is a sense of being wrapped in a secret valley while lazing in and around the hotel. Privacy and serenity are well-guaranteed, but Phuket City is only 20 minutes away by car for those seeking a sense of discovery.
Hidden in the jungle in the famous Golden Triangle, the Four Seasons sits right on the border of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar in Chiang Rai. Only accessible by private boat, it is a luxury tented camp conceived around a 19th-century safari-adventure theme. There are handcrafted leather furnishings, hardwood floors, mosquito nettings, and hurricane lamps. A vintage military jeep, used to ferry guests around the property, completes the hotel’s old-school ambiance. For a romantic evening, settle into an overstuffed leather couch at Burma Bar and sip your favorite drink while taking in the lush Ruak River basin and Elephant Camp views. Enjoy a daily tasting session at Wine Cellar and indulge in a private wine-pairing dinner to celebrate your special event. Call it a day and slip into the hand-hammered bathtub, a perfect fit for two.
The Zeavola is a boutique hotel on Phi Phi Don Island that nestles between Phuket and Thailand’s western coast. It is a place where you don’t bother packing shoes. The resort, with 53 romantic teak villas, is the ultimate in barefoot luxury. A picture-perfect tropical island is pleasant with the powdery white sand, swaying palm trees, and clear warm waters. The pace of life is as chilled as a margarita shaken with ice. The couple can dine by moonlight on an intimate beach platform by the sea.
Secluded under a forest canopy in Phuket with the Andaman Sea wavering on the horizon, Keemala Bird’s Nest Pool Villas in Kamala, Kathu, Phuket has thatched pods suspended in the jungle.
Rustic as it is stylish—the villa has a pool, super-king-size bed, and terrace, as well as a bathroom with a rain shower and freestanding bathtub with a view. True to its name, Keemala Bird’s Nest Pool Villas is a perfect “love nest.”
Built on the edge of a cliff overlooking Laem Nan Beach in Koh Samui, the Sawadee boasts 80 villas and a spectacular infinity pool. The resort also has a luxurious spa and a lovely beach tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas of Koh Samui. Still, it is close enough to the excitement of Koh Samui that excursions to the bustling areas of the island are popular day trips.
Honeymoon activities for the newlyweds
A magical honeymoon retreat might conjure up a private pool villa suite, plunging into an infinity pool, and gazing into the sunset with an umbrella drink in hand, but some couples might choose a different option. To build a stronger bond, adventurous souls may wish to do new adrenaline-pumping activities together. Foodie couples may spice up their love life while exploring the hot and spicy Thai food. Thailand has endless activities to offer honeymooners so they can personally craft memories of a lifetime.
Explore the world of coral gardens, flapping sea turtles, schools of colorful fish of all shapes and sizes, graceful manta rays, and whale sharks. Breathing underwater and immersing in the deep blue is a rush. The built-in boat trip makes this activity a two-in-one win. Sign up for the last trip of the day and get a free sunset cruise back to the hotel. The non-scuba-certified newlyweds can take the PADI e-learning course and do the pool dives at home before their wedding. They then complete the open-water diver certification at their honeymoon destination.
COOKING: Bringing the flavor of honeymoon home
The beach may bring the newlyweds to Thailand, but it is the food that lures them back—or makes the couple search for Thai recipes when they return home. Like the newlyweds themselves, Thai food is hot and sensational. The cuisine has a perfect combination of sweetness, tanginess, and—of course—spiciness. Many beach resorts offer cooking classes tailored to couples. The chef will take the lovebirds to the local market and teach them how to get fresh ingredients. Don the aprons, get into the kitchen, and learn the chef’s secrets to prepare iconic Thai food. Some hotels also give a recipe booklet so the newlyweds can recreate their honeymoon taste once they get back home.
COUPLE SPA: Releasing wedding tension
A couple spa might sound cliché, but it is a must for newlyweds. After months of hectic wedding preparation, many couples may not have much time to be alone without stressing out. Being fully engaged together in this activity can help couples stay connected.
Moreover, Thai spas and massage are second to none. The couple can reserve a private treatment room or get pampered at their villa. Honeymooners can then unwind and indulge with their other half. Massages are one of the great ways to relieve stress and tension from the wedding day.

Kayaking is available almost anywhere with water, but it does not have to be a mainstream experience. For a more adventurous honeymoon, paddle to a secluded beach or a peaceful river branch for extra thrills and privacy. Pack some fruits like strawberries, melons, oranges, and a bottle of sparkling wine for a shoreside or floating picnic. Kayaking options are found all over Thailand.
