Thailand: the land of honeymoon dreams

A honeymoon is typically defined as ‘a period of harmony that follows marriage’. It’s characterised by intimacy, by marital bliss. It will be one of the best moments you spend as a couple, apart from your wedding day, of course. When we think of honeymoons we think of luxury, of paradise. So what location better suits this definition than Thailand? You will not only be warmed by the fond memories of your special wedding day, but also by the sun-kissing rays and the sea breeze, whilst taking in the incredible landscapes.

With a perfect blend of breath-taking beaches, tranquil islands, vibrant cities, and picturesque landscapes, Thailand really has something for everyone. You will be spoilt for choice with luxury resorts and things to do as smitten newlyweds.

If you haven’t already considered Thailand for your honeymoon destination, here is why you should:

1. For a beautifully relaxing couples retreat:

Thailand boasts an array of over 60 five star luxury resorts and tonnes of boutique hotels, so you will no doubt find it easy to pick your honeymoon haven in which you will make your first memories as husband and wife.

We recommend Paradise Koh Yao, a boutique resort and spa nestled perfectly between a tropical rainforest and its own private bay. It is located just a speedboat trip away from Phuket, and so it is convenient yet still wonderfully secluded and intimate.

Paradise Koh Yao really seems to understand romance. Your honeymoon package will include a private pool or jacuzzi with your honeymoon suite, and exclusive activities such as a candlit dinner for two on the beach, sunset catamaran cruises, and sumptuous massages.

2. For the world renowned food

There is nothing better than enjoying mouth-watering meals and new, delicious foods when on holiday. In fact, for the real foodies, cuisine can make or break a holiday. In Thailand, you can be assured that you taste a slice of heaven with every meal.

What perhaps makes Thai food taste soooooo good is the fact that Thai chefs use such fresh food: local meats, organically grown fruit and veg, and fresh herbs. On the coast, fish are caught fresh that day, and they do wonders with seafood. If you are a curry fan, you can enjoy it in all colours with a fruity, exotic twist. This, when combined with the Thai passion for spices and infusions, makes for an exciting, dynamic and colourful variety of dishes for you to enjoy.

3. For the culture

If the stunning, romantic beaches and landscapes aren’t enough for you, then take advantage of the many ancient cities in Thailand, that are bursting with culture and adventure. Visit local markets bustling with handmade crafts and talented vendors. For somemore bustling and modern, pay a visit to Bangkok for rooftop bars, fascinating temples and unbelievable street food culture.
