1. Soneva Kiri

Soneva Kiri is found on the island of Koh Kood on the eastern coast of Thailand. It is Thailand’s fourth-largest but least populated island. The fact that it is remote means that is remains far less spoilt that Thailand’s more popular islands. Although it’s removed, Soneva Kiri will whisk you to paradise in its private 8 seater plane, just an hour’s flight from Bangkok International airport. Surely the perfect way to start your honeymoon?

Koh Kood is famed for its pure waterfalls, crystal clear waters, and traditional village life. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with lush, verdant, tropical jungle, and pristine beaches. The resort’s 34 private villas sit either on the beach or on the sun dazed slopes amongst the rainforest gazing over the Gulf of Siam.

Each is generously large – the most spacious in all of Asia – offering complete privacy and every level of five-star luxury and comfort. The resort offers everything from 1 bedroom Bayview Pool Villa Suites with pool, outdoor bathroom, dressing area, and dining area right up to the sprawling Six Bedroom Sunset Ocean View Pool Reserve.

The resort makes the lightest possible footprint on the environment and blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings. Only natural and sustainable building materials have been used, resulting in the rustic-chic, ‘no news, no shoes’ barefoot luxury which is the Soneva standard.

Food and wine are excellent and the team of chefs use only the freshest ingredients, locally grown or sourced, often from the resort’s own organic fruit and vegetable gardens. Soneva Fushi also has Benz’s restaurant, a small dwelling amongst the mangroves, accessed only by boat and lit by fireflies and candles. It is the name restaurant of Khun Benz, who has returned from 10 years at Soneva Fushi, who produces some of the best Thai food in Thailand.

The View offers modern European fine dining with an Asian twist all enjoyed with its spectacular vistas and unparalleled outlook; So Spirited is a poolside restaurant perched on a cliff, overlooking the sea beyond, offering delectable tapas and beverages.

Honeymooners will love the candlelit dinners at Benz or can marvel at the view from the spectacular Treepod Dining. The Treepod is a cocoon-like rattan frame lifted 16 feet above the ground. Waiters deliver each course via zipline!

There is more to do at Soneva Kiri, from the children’s Den, a bamboo structure in the shape of a Manta Ray, complete with a drawbridge to keep out adults, to every water sport and excellent diving and snorkeling, to cooking classes, an observatory, sunset cruises, day trips to neighboring islands and guided jungle treks, to watching classic movies on the big screen at Cinema Paradiso.

The Six Senses Spa is nestled into the tangled branches of the jungle and welcomes children as well as adults.

The photo above was taken by photographer and videographer Sandro Bruecklmeier. They say pictures say a thousand words and I’m sure you’ll agree that the deep blue-green sea framed by the verdant green rainforested hillsides is as close to paradise as you will probably get.

2. Amanpuri

It is no secret that I love Aman Hotels. You can read about my recent trip to Aman Grand Canale Venice which was also utterly romantic and a great honeymoon option closer to home (for us Brits).

Amanpuri Phuket is tucked away in Surin beach alongside the holiday homes of the rich and famous on Phuket. The beach can only be reached via the hotel or by boat, keeping it almost completely private.

In Sanskrit, Amanpuri means “place of peace,” a fitting name for such a tranquil destination. Designed for your complete relaxation and rejuvenation, the resort is the firstborn in the Aman family.

A towering Thai pavilion sits at the Amanpuri’s center, fringed by lush jungle and facing onto a vast black-tiled swimming pool with a glorious view of the Andaman Sea. A stone staircase leads to Pansea beach, a rustic-chic restaurant, more swimming pools, a watersports center, and tennis courts. An excellent spa is tucked away on the other side of the resort, overlooking Bang Tao beach.

Amanpuri’s rooms exude Thai elegance. Garden pavilions are secluded, with a walled garden, sunken bath, and outdoor shower. Pavilions 103 and 105 have the most striking sea views. Pick a Garden Pool Pavilion for utterly private dips in your own plunge pool.

At the Aman Spa, natural herb-infused treatments are offered in six light-filled pavilions that include a private steam room, shower, bath, and outdoor meditation sala. These are joined by a gym and Pilates studio with panoramic views, a yoga and meditation pavilion, and four floodlit tennis courts.

6. Crown Lanta Resort

This little honeymoon retreat is an absolute must on the Thai island of Krabi. Crown Lanta Resort & Spa is a beautiful beachfront resort which is such a favorite that it also features in my top 5 best hotels and resorts on Koh Lanta. It stretches across 22 hectares of park-like land, across gentle hills which lead down to dramatic cliffs overlooking the sea.

Gazebo and Elegance rooms have large, private balconies that overlook the stunning 25-meter long lap pool, garden, and across the ocean and we would highly recommend the Pool Access Deluxe rooms for your honeymoon. These rooms give you direct access to the lap pool, so you can get out of bed and dive in. Or take a dip under the stars before retiring to your bed.

For a really special honeymoon, upgrade to an Ocean Private Pool Villa, a huge villa room with its own private swimming pool and breathtaking panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and Phi Phi Island.
