Honeymoon in Koh Lanta: secluded beaches & surreal sunsets

Koh Lanta is still an unknown destination for many tourists. The island is located in the South of Thailand, by the Andaman Sea. Close to Malaysia, this little paradise is a mix of culture, beaches and preserved nature. The south part of Koh Lanta is a Natural Park, the east part is covered by mangroves and local villages. On the west side, you can find hotels, restaurants, bars and gorgeous beaches. What we love about the Koh Lanta is the relaxed vibe, and the opportunity to find empty and secluded beaches. Yes, this is true, you can have a beach only for you, and there is nothing more romantic than that!

For a perfect Thailand honeymoon in Koh Lanta you must stay at Crown Lanta Resort & Spa! The hotel is located on the top of a hill at Koh Lanta Peninsula, which gives you stunning views and privacy. The resort offers Deluxe Rooms and Villas, you can choose the best spot for you: by the pool or sea view. We stayed at the Ocean Sunset Villa and OMG!!! The view we had from our balcony was to die for, the room is huge [110 sqm] divided in one bedroom, the living area and the bathroom [our shower had an ocean view, causing endless romantic showers…hahah]. 

Thailand Honeymoon in Koh Lanta is the ultimate romantic trip. Stay at Crown Lanta Resort for gorgeous beach and sunsets!

At Crown Lanta Resort you get everything you need and want for a Thailand honeymoon. Private beach, candlelight dinners, spa, two swimming pools and a delicious breakfast. Romance mood guaranteed during sunset session at the Reggae Bar. The stylish bamboo bar nestled at the rocky beach gives you the best spot to enjoy the golden sunset while sipping a cocktail. You can order delicious Thai dishes at the bar, or after the sunset move to the Cliff Restaurant for some seafood extravaganza.

Crown Lanta is a perfect hotel for a honeymoon or for a romantic getaway, as we did. Because we don’t need special dates to celebrate love and be surrounded by majestic nature.

Crown Lanta Resort & Spa

Location: Koh Lanta – Thailand

How to get there: you can fly to Krabi and from there take a shuttle bus to Koh Lanta Saladan pier. Or you can arrive by boat, daily ferries to Koh Lanta from Phuket, Phi Phi and Aonang. The hotel will pick you up at the pier.

Honeymoon in Aonang: be amazed by the cliff views

Aonang is located at Krabi area, famous for the Railay Beach and the boat tours around the islands. We have been in Aonang twice, and enjoy it a lot. What makes Aonang a good destination for honeymoon in Thailand is the diversity. If you want to relax you can, if you want busy beachfront bars you have, and if you want to get lost in the sea spending the whole day on a boat, you can go for it. Aonang is the right choice if you are planning your honeymoon in Thailand and want beautiful beaches, water sports, breathtaking cliffs and urban feeling.

Your Thailand Honeymoon can include some water sports like kayaking in Aonang!
Healthy fun times together.

We have the perfect place for your honeymoon in Aonang. Stylish rooms, gorgeous views and the most incredible infinity pool in town… Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort is the place to be if you are on a honeymoon or on a romantic trip in Thailand. For years, the resort has been famous for the service and the rooms, but the new wing it’s outstanding. We were there on our last trip to Aonang and couldn’t believe on the view we had from our Panorama Suite, the bathtub on the balcony, the giant comfy bed and our own espresso machine. Happy Romantic Days!! 

For the best Thailand Honeymoon in Aonang you must stay at Aonang Cliff Beach Resort.
Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort.

What do you want more? OK, for a perfect Thailand honeymoon you need a special breakfast buffet with open-air tables only for Panorama suite guests? A pool with hydromassage beds and an unforgettable view of the cliffs and sea? Checked, Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort has them all!

The hotel is not a beachfront property, but with this view you don’t mind to walk few minutes to arrive on the beach. You will be hanging in one of the rocky cliffs that surround Aonang, but don’t worry you won’t need to climb stairs. From the front desk a car will take you all the way up to the new building, and you can access the whole resort by elevator.

During your Thailand honeymoon you can have the best view from Aonang Cliff Beach Resort infinity pool.

Honeymoon in Phuket: luxury to the ultimate level

Phuket has been on the romantic radar for ages. And yes, the island keeps surprising us. Many travelers tend to say that Phuket is too touristy and it doesn’t have the paradise feeling anymore. We respectfully disagree!! You need to find the best spots in Phuket and get away from the overcrowded Patong Beach. For me, Phuket is synonymous of luxurious holidays, 5-star hotels, intimate spa treatments and food from heaven. With all these qualities, of course that Phuket is one of the best honeymoon destinations in Thailand.

For the most romantic and luxury honeymoon in Thailand stay at SALA Phuket. Located in the north of the island, it’s close to the international airport and to the least known beaches. Mai Kao beach in front of the hotel is stunning, with transparent water and relaxing vibe, you gonna spend hours there soaking under the sun. Although, for me the best feature of the resort is the Private Pool Villa. With a Sino-Portuguese architecture, the villa has a huge private swimming pool, open-air bathroom and a bathtub under the stars… Romantic, Romantic, Romantic!! 

Phuket is one of the most famous Thailand Honeymoon destinations. SALA Phuket resort is perfect for lovebirds!
SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort.

You and your lover will be pampered with signature organic products from head to toe, daily special teas, fresh fruits and pillow menu. You will want to stay in your villa forever, and no one will judge you! It’s your Thailand honeymoon, enjoy every second of it!

The resort has a pool in front of the sea, a big garden with open-air movie sessions, an international restaurant offering a great selection of wines and a twist between Thai and Italian cuisine. Breakfast can be served on your room, or at the beach restaurant, your choice! If you feel like leaving your pool villa and discovering Phuket island, we have a special travel itinerary for you. After two trips to Phuket, we put together an ultimate guide with the best of the best on the island and the top things to do in Phuket.

SALA Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort

Location: Phuket – Thailand

How to get there: You can fly to Phuket [best flight rates here] or reach the island by boat. Most of the islands in the Andaman sea have daily ferry services to Phuket. From the airport /pier you can get a taxi to SALA Phuket Resort, or book with them a pick-up service.

If you are like Rob and I, an urban couple that gets thrilled while discovering the enchantments of a big city, a honeymoon in Bangkok is for you! Known for the Buddhist temples, the serious shopping and crazy nightlife, Bangkok also has a diverse dining scene, with romantic rooftop bars, intimate restaurants and hotels to die for. Who said that a perfect Thailand Honeymoon needs to be by the beach? I will prove that Bangkok is a romantic destination too!

Celebrating our Thailand Honeymoon at Lumpini Park, Bangkok
Such joy to share my life and travel the world with this guy.

We choose Bangkok to be the place to celebrate our 10th anniversary together. We decided to do our second honeymoon in Thailand and Bangkok was where everything started. A big thanks to Tracie Howe, travel writer and destination wedding photographer that had this crazy [and awesome idea] to do a romantic photo shooting at Lumpini Park. We love it!!

For the ultimate honeymoon in Bangkok, we choose to stay at the chic and classy Oriental Residence Bangkok. The hotel has everything you need and want in a big and busy city. Intimate atmosphere, personalized service and rooms that you wish you could stay forever. The hotel decor is flawless, chic at the right point, you feel good to be there!

Bangkok can be a great urban destination for your Thailand Honeymoon. Don´t forget to stay at Oriental Residence Bangkok.
Oriental Residence Bangkok.

We stayed at the Grand Deluxe Suite, that’s much more than a hotel room. We had big windows facing Lumpini Park, king size bed, living and dining area, a huge bathroom with tub and closet, plus a fully furnished kitchen. When I said we could stay there forever I wasn’t joking, Oriental Bangkok Residence gives you the homey feeling with elegance, and in the heart of Bangkok. 

Our Thailand Honeymoon at the Oriental Residence Bangkok! What a view!
Enjoying a superb city view.

The breakfast is served at the Claire Café, a modern and stylish café famous for the gourmet food and the traditional afternoon tea. When you get tired of the busy Bangkok, go for some relaxing time by the pool. The egg chairs are an invitation for some romantic snuggles, and the perfect spot to contemplate Bangkok’s skyline. Love the view, love the pool, love the hotel, love to be there with Rob… That’s how a Thailand honeymoon trip should be, all about love!

  1. While I’m not honeymooning any time soon (married with 2 middle schoolers!) I’m very intrigued by Thailand and all the beauty it has. I’d love the more secluded Koh Lanta and I already have Chiang Mai on my list. It looks like you had an amazing time and congratulations on getting married!

    • Hi Tonya!
      We had a great time in Thailand indeed!
      Thailand is very touristy destination, but you still can find hidden gems. Koh Lanta is one of the most untouched islands and Chiang Mai, even being a packed with travellers is a must visit place.
      All the best,

  2. I’m so bookmarking this. It’s too late to plan a honeymoon (ours was in Europe) but these hotels look like fantastic romantic stays for any couple. I’ve been especially curious about Koh Lanta and now I know where to stay.

    • Go to Koh Lanta, you won´t regret Carol!
      And if you really wanna enjoy a relax and romantic atmosphere, go there on low season (April – May), the beaches and street get empty, the weather is hot and you can enjoy the islands and the resort only for yourself!
      Happy travels!

  3. Thailand is certainly a great country to have a romantic honeymoon, great photos of the islands and you 2 make them even more beautiful. I really liked Ao Nang and think it would be a great place for a fantastic time with your partner!

    • Thanks so much Brenda, we tried our best to look nice on the photos 🙂
      Thailand is so beautiful that we don´t need to be good models, everywhere you look you find stunning scenery.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I don’t know what would convince me more: chick and classy Bangkok, getting “lost in the sea spending the whole day on a boat” or the peaceful mountains. Hard choice, but I think I would go for the mountains (I am a mountain girl 😉 ). The interiors of Panviman are lovely! and overlooking a beautiful greenery. I think I would like to spend my honeymoon in a similar place 🙂

    • If you like mountains, for sure Panviman would be perfect for you!
      The resort is stunning and the mornings there are beautiful and mysterious, with the fog covering the valleys and the sun shining above the mountains… Unforgettable!
      All the best,

  5. Thailand is definitively a great place for a honeymoon, with so many nice places and beautiful resorts! I have to admit a lot of the nicest hotels I have been to where there

    • Hi Mar!
      The hotels and resort in Thailand are amazing indeed. Even being a country that receives tons of tourists every year you still can find hidden gem and stunning scenery!

  6. Thailand is absolutely stunningly romantic! Great place to celebrate love. 🙂 Congrats on 10 years togther (if I understood correctly), and what a fabulous place for a second honeymoon!

  7. The bathtub by the pool looks like the perfect place to relax, and enjoy a glass of wine! Need to find a way of keeping this article from my girlfriend now though, as it could start a chain-reaction I have no control over 😀

    • Or maybe I should email her this article with more stunning photos! 🙂
      You two definitely should come to Thailand for a romantic/adventure trip!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. No wonder I visited Thailand 8 times!
    The hotels look quite swanky and comfortable. Natalie looks stunning. 🙂

    P.S.- Do you remember me? We Indian couple in Thailand, we were together in pre FAM trip for TBEX. Flower market, SPA etc

    • Hi Curtiss!!
      Thanks for the lovely comment and for mentioned us on your blog post. We didn´t expect.
      Happy to know that our passion for travel and blogging is leading us through the right path.
      All the best guys, hope to catch up with you two soon!


  9. Hi! My Fiancee and I are looking to book a honeymoon to Thailand. Where did you start off your honeymoon and did you book ferries/transportation to other area of Thailand while you were there or before you left?

    • Hi Grace,
      We started in Bangkok and then moved to the islands. You can book the ferries, bus or train when you arrive in Thailand. For flights is better to book in advance. Also hotels, Booking. com is our favorite tool to search & book hotels in Asia.
      Happy Honeymoon 🙂

    • Hi Nikhil!
      November is the beginning of the dry season in Thailand, a good time to travel there. In the north and Bangkok will be mostly good weather. The Andaman coast will be dry too, you can get a little bit of rain if you travel to the islands on the Gulf (Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan) the rainy season there finishes in November.
      Hope you have a wonderful time in Thailand!


  10. Hello and Congrats !
    My soon to be husband and I are planning our honey moon to Thailand this year. Can you give me numbers please? How much the trip cost you and how much money did you need extra ?

    Thank you 🙂

  11. You’re really making me want to go back to Thailand right now! We didn’t get to give Bangkok enough of a chance since we used it as a hub to get to the islands and Chiang Mai. We also haven’t experienced Phuket together! I love Koh Lanta though! Gorgeous photos, I also love your dress from the photo of the Grand Deluxe.

    • HI Megan!!
      Let’s all go back to Thailand, I’m missing this stunning country too!
      Next time give a try to Phuket and stay a bit longer in BKK, I’m sure you will love it!
      All the best,

  12. All of these look amazing but especially the Sala Phuket. I would love to stay there. I’ve actually stayed at the Panviman and loved it! It is an amazing property as well. Great list and your photos are awesome!

  13. It’s a good thing, or maybe not, but honeymoon and marriage are a long way off for me. I say that because this would definitely be a difficult decision to make. Thailand has so many beautiful islands to you can spend your honeymoon on. Reading through your list I have chosen the three I liked the most. They Koh Lanta, Aonang and Phuket.

  14. Wow amazing hotels! I cant believe you guys stayed at these places. Everything looks so beautiful and luxurious! I’ll definitely keep these in mind when I plan our trip to thailand. Great photos too!

    • Thanks Janna,
      Sometimes I don’t believe we have visited so many amazing places, Thailand is a stunning country and great hotels are not expensive as in Europe or USA. With a medium budget you can do a lot there.
      Tks for stopping by,

  15. These are all honeymoon worthy resorts and hotels you’ve chosen! I personally like the romantic atmosphere of having a great ocean view. Nothing more says romance than waking up next to your new spouse with a magnificent view in the morning.

  16. These are all incredible options for a honeymoon … or a second homeymoon even :D! Secluded beaches & surreal sunsets sounds like the perfect combination to me, so I’m thinking that Koh Lanta might be the way to go. And I love that it’s still an unknown destination for many tourists 🙂 Thanks for the tips!

    • Hey Megan,
      Tks for stopping by. Koh Lanta is stunning, and I’m so happy that it’s not so famous among tourist [yet]. There you can really enjoy the Thai Island vibe.
      Happy travels,

  17. Hey Natalie!

    I am so bookmarking this.

    Me and my fiancee are going to spend the next few weeks going through your blog 🙂 Just a quick question, we are getting married in September, is that a good time to go to Koh Lipe?

  18. Hi, I’m just starting to research and plan our honeymoon in January and getting confused with so many amazing destinations and what we can fit in over 2 weeks, any help or recommendations would be much appreciated. While I know I can only pick 2 or 3, on my list so far is Koh Samui, Krabi, Kho Lanta, Kho Lak and possibly Chang Mai. We more beautiful resort accommodation rather than budget and enjoy bars, beaches, markets. Thanks, Janine 🙂

  19. I know y’all enjoyed the honeymoon, Thailand is on my Bucket list and my husband said for our one year we’d go, but we’re not one to just sit and relax, we like to stay busy and active. We’re also more the adventurous type and want to be able to see the elephants, hike, enjoy the beaches and just explore. How would you go about having an itennary but not planning every single detail?
    Thank you for the post!

  20. Hello, I am planning an engagement proposal at Koh Lanta and wanted to know if you had any tips for this. Which beach should I aim for. I’ve already booked at the Crown Resort. From your post, I learned that there are many beaches that might be secluded and alone. I’ve never been there. Any thoughts?

    • Hello Andre,
      What a place for an engagement proposal 😉
      Nui Beach and Bamboo Beach are beautiful and very quiet. Or you can arrange a romantic dinner at the private beach from Crown Lanta.
      Have an amazing time!
      We wish you love and happiness!

  21. Amazing pictures!! I really liked all these pictures. Thailand is the best place for the honeymoon with nice places and beautiful resorts! !

  22. Hi just wanted to leave an appreciation comment, as I was looking for some cool honyemoon ideas and stuff to read. Really enjoyed reading this genre of your blog. Keep up the good work. Thanks will look forward for more.
