In a time when most of our travels have been domestic destinations and nearby national parks, there’s nothing quite as thrilling as the idea of planning an exotic international vacation — somewhere far away and full of opportunity for exciting new experiences. An event as important as your honeymoon deserves a destination that can deliver it all. With massive ancient temples, spectacular scenery and a world-famous street food scene, Thailand is the perfect place to fill up on all the culture, relaxation and adventure you’ve been missing. Read on for our top three recommendations on where to take your Thailand honeymoon.
Phuket, Thailand


Phuket is the picture-perfect vision of Thailand — white sandy beaches, longtail boats swaying in aquamarine waters and towering limestone cliffs spilling over with lush vegetation. From Old Town to Big Buddha, Thailand’s largest island is also bursting with historic landmarks to explore. If you’re looking for a destination with a bit of everything, Phuket won’t disappoint. From stunning natural scenery to significant cultural sites, opulent oceanfront resorts and luxurious spas, it’s is the ideal location for lovers looking for equal parts adventure and relaxation.


For those couples traveling to Thailand for a wedding or honeymoon, we highly recommend opting for a luxury villa. With breathtaking open layouts and iconic traditional Thai design, villas offer more privacy and space to spread out. Some villas even come with their own private pools, like those at Anantara Mai Khao Phuket and Banyan Tree Phuket.

Koh Samui, Thailand


If your honeymoon priorities are lounging on white-sand beaches, sipping tropical cocktails at swanky nightclubs and relaxing with a couples’ massage, Koh Samui is the perfect destination for you. And for those in search of the perfect beachfront wedding venue, you’ll have your pick from the most luxurious in the country. From Chaweng Beach to Bophut Beach, Lamai Beach and many more, Koh Samui is famous for its perimeter. Between lounging in the sun and dancing on the beach, make time to see the colorful temples of Waat Plai Laem and Wat Phra Yai, too.


Flanked by panoramic views of the Gulf of Thailand, W Koh Samui is a 5-star oasis on one of the most pristine beaches on the island. With its trendy modern design, bold beachfront bars and panoramic peninsula views from Maenang to Bo Phut, this is your sun and fun paradise. Looking for something quieter and off the beaten path? Opt for the lavish Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui instead.

Chiang Mai, Thailand


Nestled in mountainous northern Thailand, the city of Chiang Mai is a historical treasure trove bursting with world famous cultural sites, mouthwatering street food markets and misty mountain landscapes. Take a tour of the city’s many elaborate Buddhist temples, from the gold temple of Wat Phra Singh to the ruins at Wat Chedi Luang, the giant Buddha at Wat Phra That Doi Kham and countless others. Hike through magical waterfalls, visit a Hmong village or take a trek through a bustling night market. Chiang Mai is the perfect honeymoon destination for the couple who wants to explore it all.


If you want a quiet respite within walking distance of the city’s main attractions, we recommend Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai. Surrounded in sweeping mountain views, the hotel boasts many lush amenities, including the largest swimming pool in the city. Looking for something closer to the action? Go for Le Méridien Chiang Mai, one of the tallest hotels in the heart of downtown with a beautiful rooftop pool overlooking Doi Suthep mountain.
