Planning a wedding is one thing but finding the perfect location for you and your better half to spend your honeymoon is another entirely.
The good news is that you don’t have to worry about anyone else besides yourselves at that point. You won’t have to consider parking or accommodation for your guests, or whether or not they’re going to be well-fed and sufficiently entertained. That’s a separate issue and one that has hopefully been taken care of already—unless of course you’re planning the honeymoon first (which is understandable as it is the best thing about getting married)!
The first question is, where do you go? We’ve covered plenty of great romantic locations here on Hotel Scoop. But if you’re looking for somewhere both exotic and beautiful, where you can eat well and be by a beach, consider Phuket, Thailand. Read on and we’ll set the scene for you and then share five fantastic luxury villas in Phuket for your perusal.
What Makes Phuket the Perfect Honeymoon Setting?
What do people want from a honeymoon? Often it’s tropical weather, plenty of sunshine, white sand beaches, crystal clear water, cocktails on demand, oodles of leisure, and great food.
Phuket ticks all of those boxes and more, with the added bonus of boasting one of the most spectacular cultural tapestries in the world. If you’re going to fly halfway around the world, you want to visit a country that has enough mystery, history, and charm to make that flight worth your while. In Thailand you can experience one of the world’s great cuisines and enjoy some of the best personal service anywhere on the planet.
Why You Should Choose a Villa Over a Hotel
You may be tempted with a 5-star hotel or resort, but we’d advise you hire your own personal luxury villa instead. You only get married once (hopefully), so the honeymoon should be extra special. And what could be more special than having your very own private luxury villa with nobody around to disturb you except those there to serve you? No screaming children, no loud families squabbling at dinner, no buffet lines. Just you, your newlywed, and the tropical backdrop.
