Band or D.J.? Cake or doughnuts? Veil or flower crown? If you can’t make one more wedding-related decision, then don’t. Well, maybe just one more: a Thailand honeymoon. Then make the rest easy on yourselves by going with a package that plans your trip for you. Here are five Thailand honeymoon packages for whatever type of vacay you two have in mind. (Psst, while most of these include a bunch of planned food and travel, make sure to read the details!) Ready, set, honeymoon.
THAILAND’S WEST COAST BEACHES
For: The wanderlust beach bum couple
This trip is all about the beach culture. Between Bangkok and Phuket, you'll explore the clear blue waters and white sands the region is famous for, ride in an overnight sleep train and earn your sea legs with plenty of boat travel—including a sea kayaking trip through inlets, caves and hidden lagoon of the Ao Thalane. While this is a group trip (up to 12 people total), there’s plenty of down time for relaxing on the pristine beaches you’re bound to discover.
Cost per person: From $1,260 (Trips update regularly, so consult the most recent trip itineraries.)
Romantic & Relaxing Thailand
For: The couple who wants the definition-of-honeymoon honeymoon
Eyeing that infinity pool? That’s day seven of your trip at the InterContinental Samui. Yep, this getaway is all about serenity and romance. Think: secluded beaches and tropical paradises. With time in Bangkok, Phuket and the islands of your choice, you will hardly feel like you just spent every day of the last six months planning a wedding.
Price per person: $2,799
Rendezvous in Bangkok and Chiang Mai
For: The culture lovers
Not a beach couple? Stick to two of Thailand’s biggest cities. In Bangkok, you’ll explore ancient culture, including tours of the Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha. And in the mountainous northern city of Chiang Mai, you’ll explore some of the country’s oldest temples, like the Wat Suan Dok, where you might just receive a blessing of good health and fortune from a monk. We think that’s definitely worth the 16-hour flight.
Price per person: $2799
The Chiang Mai Spa Resort and Phuket Pool Villa
For: The couple who wants R&R and culture
First stop? The Ratilanna Riverside Spa resort, where your deluxe suite, smack-dab on the beautiful Ping River, awaits you (rose-petal bed decor included). While this place will certainly make you feel like you escaped from the rest of civilization, you are surprisingly close to local attractions like the night and flower market. But don’t get too comfortable (impossible), because the next part of your trip is located on the beach in Phuket with your own villa, plunge pool and ocean view.
Price person: $1,299
Keemala Resort Phuket
For: The couple that wants to completely unwind
This is the definition of a hideaway. In the Bird’s Nest Villa, you’ll not only have your own gorgeous living space with a monsoon shower (it’s a thing), but a private deck and lap pool with ocean, rainforest and mountain views. And if you ever decide to descend from the tree tops, you’ll be right in the heart of Phuket, close to dining, shopping, beaches and an easy day trip to the iconic and beautiful Khao Phing Kan (James Bond Island).
Price person: $1,799
