Luxury Thailand Honeymoon and Romance Holiday Featuring Koh Yao Yai


For the discerning couple seeking that uncommon, blissful romantic holiday that is literally out of this world, our Thailand Romance package might just be the one. Meticulously crafted with an exotic blend of romance, fun and indulgence, this unforgettable 10-night program has it all – from Chiang Mai’s enchanting ambiance and fantastic wildlife, to Phuket’s beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife, to Koh Yao Yai’s sleepy yet stimulating small island vibes where time stood still for decades.

Your introduction to Thailand begins with Chiang Mai, a city with a charming cultural personality blessed with majestic natural beauty. Here, embark a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity spending a day with your very own elephant at the acclaimed Patara Elephant Farm; enjoy a fun-filled Thai culinary lesson, and explore Chiang Mai’s temples, markets and river life by trishaw and long-tailed boat. Next, journey south to the tropical island paradise of Phuket. Famous the world over for its fine beaches, electric nightlife and plethora of entertainment, Phuket has something for everyone.

After six days of adventure and excitement, we quickly shift into “chill” mode transcending your body and soul to a whole new dimension. A 25-minute time capsule (speed boat ride) takes you to the virtually undiscovered island of Koh Yao Yai, a place so serene, so pure and so beautiful that offers a rare glimpse of what a typical Thai island may have been like half a century ago. This island paradise boasts a tantalizing array of primitive fishing villages, pristine shores dotted with spectacular kasrt towers, and the friendliest people on the planet. Here, spend four blissful days at the awe-inspiring Santhiya Resort where everything is simply over the top — the breathtaking sea views, the ultra-luxurious private pool villas crafted entirely of beautiful teak wood, the super attentive staff that treats every guest like royalty, the Santhiya wows even the most seasoned holiday maker.

Jungle trek on an elephant’s back in Northern Thailand’s rainforest, relax on the virgin shores of the Andaman Sea, relish Koh Yao’s timeless culture and friendly faces, whatever your wish for the perfect romantic holiday, this tour promises a lifetime of memories.
