Thailand – 8 of the Best Honeymoon Hotels for 2018

When it comes to Honeymoons - Thailand is HOT HOT HOT!

(And not only because the average temperature reaches 38 degrees during its hot season.)

Thailand is a HONEYMOON HOTSPOT – attracting 1000’s of newlyweds each year, with its seductive mix of carefree tropical beaches, exotic adventures, world-class honeymoon resorts, intoxicating culture and history, and lipsmackingly delicious cuisine.

Indeed, Thailand has a universal magic that makes it one of the most enchanting and romantic destinations in the world.

Here are 8 of our top honeymoon hotels in Thailand for 2018 and the reasons why you’ll love them. Because choosing your perfect honeymoon hotel in Thailand is a beast of a decision to make. But it’s one of the most gorgeous problems you’ll ever have.

#1 V Villas Hua Hin, MGallery by Sofitel

63/39 Petchkasem Rd, Hua Hin, Prachuap Khirikhan, 77110, Thailand

This can’t be real.

Horseback riding along the sands…lazy beach days in the tropical sun…whispering sweet nothings as you walk barefoot along the shore at sunset…You’d be forgiven for thinking it’s all a bit too perfect to believe.

Because this is your wildest honeymoon dreams brought to life at Villas Hua Hin.

Here the tranquil white sand beaches of Hua Hin are nothing short of a honeymoon paradise. Set directly on the beachfront, you’ll experience a romantic fantasy that surpasses all expectation. And where every luxurious villa has its own private pool and sundeck.

This is a ‘no-tan-line’ honeymoon.

And when you want to venture out? You’re just 2 hours’ drive from Bangkok, and close by to golf courses, waterparks and the King’s summer palace. And when the sun goes down there’s the famous Hua Hin night market and a plethora of world-class Thai restaurants, all within easy walking distance of the hotel.

Or you can always just stay in. Because a succulent BBQ dinner prepared by your own private chef in the privacy of your own villa…followed by snuggles on the sofa watching your favourite movie (courtesy of a full hi-tech home theatre sound system) is not the worst way to spend a romantic night in.

#2 The Pavilions Phuket

31/1 Moo 6, Cherngtalay Thalang, Phuket, 83110, Thailand

Let’s think about all the things a honeymoon should be.

Private? Intimate? Unforgettable? Heavenly? Jaw dropping-ly romantic?

Well those are the things honeymoons at The Pavilions Phuket are known for. Because their spacious private pool villas were designed and made for honeymooners like you. Because they know you want complete privacy and a stunning view from your private infinity pool overlooking Layan beach (just 5 mins away).

Even the staff are in on it – of course, they’ll make sure you have everything you need but they also know ‘you just want to be alone together’ – so that's what’ you get here – left alone…together…with everything you could ever need… in one of the most stunning locations in the world on a quiet, tropical hillside cradled by the gentle ocean breeze. Yep - it definitely ticks your honeymoon boxes.

And there's also special in-villa gourmet dining including a romantic dinner under the stars, award-winning couple’s spa treatments, their highly recommended herbal bath, and plenty of insider tips from the staff on the best things to do in Phuket including watch the sunset at 360 Bar with cocktails and Asian tapas. If it sounds amazing that's because it is.

 #3 Layana Resort & Spa

272 Moo 3 Saladan, Phra-Ae Beach (Long Beach), Saladan, Koh Lanta, Krabi, Asia, 81150, Thailand

If sipping sundowners at a beach bar...overlooking white tropical the sun sets in a crimson tinted rainbow over Phi Phi island is your idea of honeymoon heaven then Layana Resort and Spa has your wedding monogram written all over it.

Honeymooning couples are recommended to book the Beach Suite overlooking the sea or the Ocean Deluxe Suite, just a few steps from the beach and offering an outdoor sala style living area with amazing 270 degree views.

Honeymoons at Layana Resort will be enjoyed indulging in a couples massage at the award winning Linger Longer Spa with a special Couples Day on every Friday, when your partner comes free. Or you can go on a Picnic Lunch Cruise by Long Tail Boat around the island. And an absolute must is the Sundowner Cruise - a magical cruise through the untouched mangrove forests lying between Koh Lanta Yai and Koh Lanta Noi around the north and down the east coast of Koh Lanta. You'll see many Macaque monkeys and a variety of birdlife, and it's a fabulous way to watch the evening sunset behind the hills.

And for a mind-blowing honeymoon memory of a lifetime  - dinner for two on the beach at Tides Restaurant with special themed candle light setting.
