Thailand is a land of beauty and of culture, of cuisine and of kindness

Thailand is a country where the warmth of the greeting is as warm as the climate itself. Few places on earth can boast such a blessing of natural wonders and perfect hideaways.

There is so much to experience on a luxury holiday in Thailand that the biggest issue you will have is choosing what aspects of this diverse country to immerse yourself in. East meets west in Bangkok, with its opulent Grand Palace, vibrant floating markets and no-holds-barred nightlife, while the ancient city of Chiang Mai, nestled among forests and mountains, offers quite the contrast.

There is so much to experience on a luxury holiday in Thailand that the biggest issue you will have is choosing what aspects of this diverse country to immerse yourself in. East meets west in Bangkok, with its opulent Grand Palace, vibrant floating markets and no-holds-barred nightlife, while the ancient city of Chiang Mai, nestled among forests and mountains, offers quite the contrast.

Thailand's islands offer both excitement and serenity; party under the stars on Koh Phangan, get in some excellent scuba diving on Koh Samui, rest your soul on the beautiful beaches of Koh Phayam and get back to nature on Koh Phra Thong.

You will be left anything but wanting by the resorts Thailand luxury holidays offer, whether you choose a spacious suite offering panoramic views of Pattaya Bay or a hillside villa with a private pool on the Phi Islands.

Where is Thailand located?

Between the Indian and Pacific oceans, Thailand’s mainland is nestled in-between Myanmar (Burma) and Laos in the north as well as bordering Cambodia and Malaysia in the south. It’s home to over 1400 islands which are found around its coast in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

Thailand holiday highlights

One of the most diverse destinations in Asia, Thailand is a vibrant tapestry of culture, wildlife and awe-inspiring landscapes. You will walk through temples home to larger-than-life Buddha statues, and then drink in the views of Bangkok’s clamorous streets from a slick rooftop bar, or people-watch from a lively spot on vibrant Khao San Road.

As you venture up north it’s a different realm altogether, where the cuisine takes on a more earthy flavour and lush mountainous vistas replace sea and skyscrapers. In the northern capital, Chiang Mai, you can immerse yourself in the hum of its night market or learn about the lives of local hill tribes.

Combining a mainland stay with Thailand’s beautiful beaches is easy for us to arrange with regular domestic flights – and even the more remote islands are worth the journey as you transfer to your hotel via traditional long-tail boat.

On Thailand’s gold and white-sand beaches, you can take it easy with a cocktail in hand or a massage in a beachfront sala, or head out into the emerald waters for day trips that wash you ashore idyllic islands or to protected marine parks for snorkelling and diving.

And then there’s the food. Cheap and delicious bites from street vendors, aromatic spices freshly ground with a pestle and mortar in a city cooking class or exquisite morsels at a fine dining restaurant; dining is a treat for all foodies.

Family Activities

The ‘Land of Smiles’ is a smorgasbord of family friendly pursuits. Keep little imaginations running wild with a visit to an elephant sanctuary or a tuk-tuk tour of the local town, while older children will love traversing the emerald green jungle in search of their own adventure. From white-water rafting to beach basking, we will design your family’s luxury Thailand holiday to perfection.

When is the best time to visit Thailand?

The best time to visit Thailand is during the cool and dry season between November and early April, when temperatures range from 29°C to 34°C. However, the climate varies throughout the country and you can visit all year round.

In the south, the climate differs between the eastern and western coasts. The west coast is more favourable during the winter months, when diving and snorkelling will be at their best.

The weather on the east coast of Thailand is good for most of the year. Rainfall there is lowest in January and February, and highest in November.
