Beautiful Phuket wields a special allure. Its sweeping coasts, mesmerising sunsets and azure ocean will charm couples in search of a honeymoon destination in the tropics. If you and your loved one have your hearts set on honeymooning at Phuket, kickstart your celebration of a lifetime together with these six activities, perfect for two:
1. Wine and Dine at a Beachfront Restaurant
On certain nights, with certain people, only a very special setting for an intimate meal will do. If an oceanfront restaurant offering scenic views of the tropical sunset scenery is what you have in mind, you will be spoilt for choice at Phuket, for the island is home to a wide array of fine dining establishments. With a plethora of tempting choices available, decision making becomes a tricky process…until you chance upon a handy list featuring the best beachfront restaurants on the island!
2. Indulge in a Pampering Spa Treatment
Let go of all your daily cares and concerns the moment you step into the well-appointed room of the spa parlour. Each and every aspect of the room, starting from the aromatic fragrance of the essential oils, to the dim lighting and soothing tunes playing softly in the background, are designed to leave you in a state of utter relaxation.Couples who are pressed for time may schedule a quick treatment at one of Phuket’s best day spas. If time is of no concern, indulge in a lengthy spa treatment for two.
3. Enjoy a Leisurely Beach Stroll
Feel the powdery grains of fine sand under your feet, and take in deep inhalations of the salty sea breeze. Keep cool by taking a relaxing stroll along a stretch of secluded coast in the early hours of the morning or evening.
4. Participate in a Culinary Class
A fun-filled cooking class is perfect for couples with a love for food and culinary pursuits. Health-conscious foodies keen on whipping up a storm of wholesome delicacies will find suitable classes at Organic Thai Cooking. These classes involve a visit to the local organic farm, and are conducted in small groups to ensure a highly personalised experience. Alternatively, why not try your hand at replicating a gourmet feast? This may sound rather intimidating, but the workshops at Mom Tri’s Boathouse will leave you well-equipped with culinary knowledge to accomplish this feat. Beginner cooks interested in undertaking an interactive cooking class will be put at ease by the detailed instructions provided during the culinary sessions conducted at Kata Thai Cooking Class.
5. Embark on a Sunset Cruise
Tuck into a scrumptious spread, while you set sail upon a Chinese junket into the boundless ocean. Keep your eyes peeled for picturesque views of the scenic Phang Nga Bay, and eagerly await the magical hour of sunset. As the sky slowly darkens into a velvety hue, a scrumptious five-course meal is served for your dinner. Lasting over a duration of two to three hours, this tour is the perfect evening activity for couples seeking a unique and intimate dining experience.
6. Stay in a Luxurious Villa
A stay in a private villa offers a level of intimacy and luxury matched by no other. A myriad of stunning vacation rentals on the island ensures that there is something for everyone.
