Phuket is the perfect place for a romantic holiday or honeymoon, with remote sandy beaches and many romantic hideaway resorts. We have compiled five easy tips and things to do in order to prep for your romantic vacation.
Select the Right Accommodation for Romance
Choosing the right accommodation is the first key step towards a memorable romantic holiday. When it comes to the occasion of selecting the right resort for your honeymoon, you may wish to look away from the mainstream larger-style International brands that you are accustomed to. As you want your honeymoon as an experience to be remembered for a lifetime, we recommend picking resorts that can deliver both a romantic ambience while offering a unique charm and character of that particular travel destination. Thavorn Beach Village Resort & Spa is a popular luxury resort for honeymooners, offering a long private beach and the delivering unique local touches that incorporate the cultures of Phuket and Thailand.
Romantic Sightseeing in Phuket
Aside from the romantic evening strolls on the beach, Phuket has many notable romantic activities. One top activity that cannot be missed is a couple sunset stroll at Promthep Cape. Promthep Cape or Laem Promthep as it is known, at the most southern tip of Phuket, is perhaps one of Phuket’s most beautiful sunset viewpoints. You can take an early evening stroll or relax with a cold drink and watch the sun set on the horizon. A must see for couples!
Selecting Romantic Dinner Spots
In addition to beautiful beaches and scenery, Phuket is renowned for its amazing seafood and local cuisine. We recommend making advance reservations for dining spots with romantic ambience as these places tend to get booked up. A popular choice for honeymooners is the Phuket Romantic Dining, offering private candle-lit cabanas on a private beach, each in a delicate lace draped gazebo which are lantern and candle lit when the night draws in. One of the most romantic dining spots in Phuket to have an intimate Thai or seafood dinner with your toes in the sand and enjoying the romantic sea breezes.
Take a Little Adventure with Island and Snorkeling Tours
Phuket is surrounded by world-class islands so why not visit them and take a romantic adventure? Speed boats tours will take you on a day trip to some of the most amazing islands around Phuket. If you want a memorable Thai experience, be sure to check out the Longtail boat options that are only exclusive to Thailand! A must visit island when you visit Phuket is no other than Phi Phi island, a one-hour speed boat ride away from mainland Phuket. You and your partner will be able to enjoy breathtaking sceneries, snorkeling with colorful fishes, or simply laying down on a beach for relaxing tanning sessions.
Indulge in Wellness Activities
Indulge in Phuket’s relaxing romantic beach ambience and engage in wellness activities with your partner. Take a break from sightseeing and adventurous island tours and take a rejuvenating spa session. Don’t miss out on Thai massage , renowned around the world as one of the best massages. Thai massage has additional benefits of discharging muscle pains, in which the therapist will use their hands or knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and applied deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Some posture might look a little bit scary and painful, but it does work well and leave you more relaxed than you have ever been. Additionally, Thai massages help reduce stress and increase oxygen level in your blood, giving you energy boosts throughout your romantic honeymoon. We recommend checking out Chann Spa, a luxury spa located in Kamala Phuket and nestled within Thavorn Beach Village Resort & Spa, open for all guests. It provides all the spa facilities you will need, including sauna and Jacuzzi hot tub.
If you and your partner are not into massages, you can also look into other wellness activities available in Phuket such as beach yoga and meditation.
