Top 10 Outstanding Beach Resorts in Thailand

October 6th, 2010 by

Thailand is a tourism tour de force with culture and charisma galore. Close to 15 million people visit the Kingdom every year – 10 million visit dynamic Bangkok alone – to take in a formidable array of attractions. From UNESCO World Heritage Sites to ancient Buddhist landmarks, lush highlands to national parks, Thailand is superb.

The siren call of paradisal tropical islands however, is perhaps the most coercive lure at Thailand’s disposal. With this precisely in mind, the people behind the annual HotelClub Awards set out to identify and honour the top 10 beach resorts in the Southeast Asian nation. Check out the notable finalists and winners.

Finalists:

Chaweng Regent Beach Resort Samui

Samui is not all coconut groves, white sand and coral reefs but if that seductive trio floats your boat, look no further for your next dream holiday. The lavish Chaweng Regent is the place to be on the gorgeous island.

Buri Rasa Koh Samui

Another Samui stalwart, Buri Rasa combines chic boutique charm with beach resort excellence. The romantic oasis features stylish decor, traditional Thai hospitality and tasteful, private villas.

Malisa Villa Suites Phuket

Phuket is one of the most popular island escapes in the world, let alone Thailand. The province is the size of Singapore and as a result, offers a lot to see and do. Those who choose the idyllic confines of Malisa Villa Suites on Kata Beach however, come to relax in luxury.

Alila Hotel Cha-Am Hua Hin

Cha Am is a choice beach resort town on the Gulf of Thailand coast. A mere three hours from Bangkok, the Phetchaburi province holiday gem is home to the extraordinary Alila Hotel. The posh spa resort is a marvelous five-star property near the summer palace of King Rama VI.

Indigo Pearl Hotel Phuket

A designer beach resort with considerable flair and panache, the Indigo Pearl is without question, one of the best hotels on the island of Phuket. The jet-set jewel has a superb ensemble of casual and gourmet restaurants and the nonpareil Indigo spa is the pinnacle of indulgence.

Burasari Resort Phuket

Not to be outdone, another Phuket property comes to the fore. The popular Burasari Resort offers enviable proximity to vibrant Patong Beach and some of the best shops, cafés, restaurants and bars on the island.

Muang Samui Spa Resort

For a sumptuous escape from the hustle bustle of daily life, few beach resorts have the chops to compete with Muang Samui. The gorgeous and plush tropical resort caters to every whim and fancy with attentive service and style.

Winners:

Rawi Warin Resort & Spa Koh Lanta

The world-class Rawi Warin Resort & Spa is a notable luxury property on Lanta island in the beautiful province of Krabi. The beach resort has it all, from superb cuisine to a picturesque backdrop over Klong Tob Bay. Pamper your cares away with luscious spa treatments and a dip in the exquisite sunset pool.

Rasananda Resort Koh Phangan

A dream spot between verdant foothills and the pure white sands of Tong Nai Pan Noi secures Rasananda Resort’s place as one of the best beach resorts in Thailand. The Full Moon Party hub of Phangan island has a wonderful oasis in this reputable five-star property.

Santhiya Resort & Spa Koh Phangan

Another Phangan sanctuary on Tong Nai Pan Noi delivers extravagance and effusive comfort. The blissful ambiance of Santhiya Resort has won many international awards and indeed, the gorgeous property is postcard-perfect. Breezy, spacious rooms peer over turquoise waters and the on-site Ayurvana Spa re-defines pleasure.
