A relationship is like a living, breathing organism. It needs care and attention to flourish. And what better way to provide your relationship with a fresh injection of life energy than a romantic getaway, a few days just for the two of you. Here is Naa Magazine’s list of romantic getaways in Thailand that will make the flame of your love burn even brighter.
Renaissance Phuket Resort and Spa
555, Moo 3, Mai Khao, Talang, Phuket Island, 83110, Thailand
A stable, long term relationship is all about finding the middle ground and Renaissance Phuket Resort and Spa does just that. Yes, it’s located far in the islands north, away from Phuket’s main tourist attractions but it also lies next to the island’s longest and least crowded beaches – a picture perfect spot for romantic strolls. In fact, the resort’s romantic appeal is much thanks to its location – away from the crowds, secluded and blessed with peaceful atmosphere. While the designer lobby has bit of a futuristic feel to it, the spacious rooms received a more classic treatment, with warm colors and natural materials and decorations all part of the interior design. Add to this some excellent dining choices (make sure to try the Locavore restaurant), friendly stuff and even more romantic beach strolls, and nothing will stop your romance from blooming.
The Peninsula Bangkok
333 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan, Bangkok 10600, Thailand
Among the world’s top luxury hotels, The Peninsula in Bangkok is also one of the most romantic – largely due to the amazing panoramic view of the Chao Phraya River and Bangkok’s skyline from all of its 370 rooms. But before you and your loved one unwind in your colonial style suite, first pick the manner in which you’ll reach the hotel. You can opt for a Rolls Royce or BMW limousine, a river crossing in a classic boat or…landing on the hotels helipad. How romantic is that?
137 Pillars House
2 Soi 1 Nawatgate Road, Chiang Mai, เชียงใหม่ 50000, Thailand
There’s something strangely romantic about taking a step back in time. To do just that, plan a couple’s getaway at Chiang Mai’s 137 pillars house – a remarkable boutique hotel which while small in size in blessed with enormous amounts of character. Set in a XIX century teakwood mansion, the hotel comprises 30 exquisitely designed, intimate suites with each element of the interior design and decorations well thought off and planned – form the vintage style furniture, through Egyptian silk linens to luxurious toiletries. The unique atmosphere of this place filled to the brim with history is best described with one word – romantic.
10/88 Moo 6, Nakasud Rd., Kamala, Kathu District, Phuket
The latest addition to Phuket’s sprawling hospitality scene is also one of the most unique and romantic. There are many reasons why Keemala is a perfect couples resort. Let’s start with the design – the resort’s villas come in a number of stunning “nature inspired” designs. Some resemble bird’s nest and some will remind you of tropical tent, all have private pools and are surrounded by lush, tropical garden with a stream flowing through its heart. The resorts restaurant serves excellent local and international dishes and a sunset cocktail session on the open terrace is bound to put you and your partner in a romantic mood. Oh, and no children are allowed.
Khao Sok Lake Floating Houses
Khao Wong, Ban Ta Khun District, Surat Thani, Thailand
For an even more “au naturel” as well as rustic experience visit Thailand’s biggest national park – the Khao Sok. There you can stay in one of the most romantic locations in the country – in a raft house on a lake. Imagine yourself and your loved one, a couple of castaways amidst wild nature, silence of the night broken only by your heartbeats. What this place lacks in luxury, it makes up for with remarkable atmosphere and landscapes. And the experience of plunging directly form your bedroom into crystal clear waters of the lake is simply unforgettable.
