The Best Islands in Thailand for a Honeymoon – Perfect Getaways for Newlyweds

While the wedding may be your dream day, don't forget the honeymoon is equally important! When it comes to choosing a destination to enjoy your post-wedding getaway, it will be hard to beat some of Thailand's truly enchanting islands. Here are some of the top choices.



Popular the world over, Phuket offers an island escape which can be as laid-back or thrilling as you want. While families and solo travellers are also drawn to this island, so too are couples who can look forward to spending time on soft sandy beaches, holistic spas and luxury resorts in Phuket. Water sports are also easy to engage in when here and once the sun has made its way past the horizon, a happening nightlife scene bursts forth! The island is ideal for a stay of around four to five days with the peak season being between November and April.


Koh Chang

If it is more seclusion you are after, then consider Koh Chang which is a particular favourite amongst those looking to experience nature as well. The island is blessed with some truly amazing tropical forests which not only provide an atmosphere of tropical tranquillity but are great for exploring too. Apart from lazing on the beach, intrepid honeymooners can look forward to hiking along forest trails and discovering idyllic waterfalls. Not to be missed is the chance to go diving as well since the waters surrounding the island are teeming with life.


Koh Samui

Another of Thailand's much-loved islands, Koh Samui is perfect for a honeymoon and offers pristine beaches and picturesque national parks to explore. Newlyweds staying at a spa hotel Koh Samui has to offer can look forward to indulging in wellness treatments together as well. Luxury properties such as Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort also make sure you and that special someone enjoy the pampering you deserve and offer private beach dining, fun cooking classes and even a cruise on a yacht. For more adventure, you can plan an excursion to the Ang Thong National Park too.


Koh Lanta

Part of the joy of a honeymoon at an island is the chance to not only spend time by the ocean but also immerse yourselves in a more laid-back atmosphere. This is just the kind of experience that awaits at Koh Lanta that has heavenly beaches with soft white sand bordered by a dazzling ocean; the clear waters provide fantastic visibility for divers looking to take in the colourful marine life beneath the waves. Come evening, couples can look forward to witnessing a magical sunset as well.


Koh Phi Phi

Have you seen the movie "The Beach" starring Leonardo DiCaprio? The gorgeous island featured in it was none other than Koh Phi Phi! Of course, the island is no longer a "secret" getaway but does offer an ideal place to spend your honeymoon set amidst scenic beaches and bays. The reefs around the island are worth exploring too and come night time, there are plenty of bars and parties to be enjoyed for newlyweds looking for some active nightlife.
