Honeymoon in Thailand - Money Can't Buy Me Love

Sep 10, 2008
Thailand has long been known for utter perfection as a holiday destination - it has sparkling white sand beaches, cozy tropical islands, stunning ancient Buddhist temples, as well as lush jungles and verdant wild areas. On top of all of this, it is known as one of the least expensive holiday destinations in Asia. The northern Thai peninsula is historic, with many sites and cities founded over 800 years ago, while the southern peninsula is a favorite for tropical paradise lovers. Bangkok is the most commonly visited city, and is Thailand's thriving, beating heart, while Chiang Mai is the dignified head of the country. We look at the best Bangkok luxury hotels and Chiang Mai hotels for your honeymoon, as well as what to do when you can drag yourself away from your luxury Asian resort!

You will likely arrive in Bangkok for your Thai honeymoon - most international flights come to this city. Bangkok is a bustling, thriving metropolis, that yet retains its Asian spirit and charm. Take a break at a Bangkok hotel before you think about seeing the sights though - you are probably more concerned about your new spouse than any tourist sights at the moment!

One of the best is Shangri-La Bangkok, decked out in classical luxury style, and surrounded by an oasis of peaceful tropical gardens in the middle of this busy city. Choose suite accommodation in these luxury Bangkok hotel rooms, to treat yourself on the most important holiday of your life. Suites include the little luxuries that make such a big difference at this hotel, like 800-thread count sheets, a pillow menu, and a sound system for romantic dancing! The Bangkok hotel itself has a signature spa, CHI, which offers Asian wellness treatments like Aroma Vitality sessions, Chi balancing, Sen Chi, and Himalayan stone massage. Although it is your honeymoon - you don't want to relax so much that you can do nothing but fall asleep!

Another great choice of hotel in Bangkok is Iebua at the State Tower. Another Bangkok hotel done in classics luxury style, Iebua at the State Tower has already won several awards and accolades in the short time it has been open. In the classics luxury category of hotel, Iebua is the most spacious in the city - although it is debatable whether you will need all that room! You should only need enough space to curl up beside a snug warm body, of course. Iebua is also great at making you feel taken care of with Bvlgari bath amenities, feather-soft beds, and international delicacies in the mini-bar, rather than the standard nuts and sodas.

However, if history and dignity are more your style as a couple than speed and excitement, then Chiang Mai will suit you much better as a honeymoon destination. Shangri-La Chiang Mai is located in the heart of the quiet, historic city, and from the hotel room in Chiang Mai you can walk to breathtaking ancient sites like the centuries old ruins of the city walls, curio and antique shops in teakwood structures, and explore tree-lined lanes that house some of the world's oldest temples. You can also explore the city's surrounds on elephant back! The hotel itself is stunningly luxurious, with gorgeous silken and tapestry comforts in the suites, and a focus on Thai culture and history in the architecture. This is a relatively new Chiang Mai hotel, built in December 2007, and if you get in quickly you may be one of the first in your room!

Four Seasons Chiang Mai is another Chiang Mai hotel that is perfect for honeymoons. History and dignity don't have to mean inactivity, and there are plenty of things to do within the hotel in Chiang Mai complex. Thai cooking classes can get your wedded dinners off to a great start, and tropical spas can refresh and rejuvenate your souls, ready for a new life together. This hotel also has 16 private residences with one, two or three bedrooms - all with private housekeepers, so there won't be any arguments over who is going to wash up just yet!

Enjoy your honeymoon in Thailand at your Asian luxury resort- it is guaranteed to refresh your soul, without stressing your wallet.
