Tucked away in one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket and our favorite, Pansea Beach, a nearly-private beach with crystal clear turquoise blue water and golden sands which can only be reached via long-tail boat, or through the two hotels that share this beach, Amanpuri and The Surin. We are so happy to be back here again, this time at The Surin. The surin showcases a serene beachfront location between rolling hills and towering coconut palms, making it hard to believe that it is just 45 minutes from the airport! Our beachfront villa is right in front of the sunset on the beach, we are breathing in all of the gorgeous views!
Hidden behind these great grand white palace walls lie the superb recreational of the ancient palace with ornately carved golden pagodas, jewel-like-colored mosaic floors to walls, handcrafted furniture, antique chandeliers, and tailored-made Thai decor. This not-5-but-6-star resort has perfectly carved out a place in the past that reflects Lanna Kingdom at its most flourish time with utmost beauty and the richest heritage of Thai Northern Regime. Dhara Dhevi has done so with unparalleled attention to every single detail. These 60 acres of lush green landscape also comes with breathtakingly romantic view of terraced rice paddies, exotic plantation, tranquil farmland, serene lakes, multicolor lotus ponds, beautiful temple houses, and flower-filled gardens. As we entered through the gate of Dhera Dhevi, we have walked into a fairytale. This is definitely one of the most stunning properties in Thailand and definitely one of the most beautiful attractions you will ever see in Chiang Mai. If you are seeking for ultimate luxury with authentic and local cultural touches, look no further. Paradise of dreams is found within.
Although within an eyeshot of the famous bustle and hustle Phi Phi Island (which we also love :)), Koh Lanta features charmingly calm clear blue seas, miles long white sand beaches, and stunning scenery both on and offshore (Oh Yes Paradise with Solitude Found!). The island is a true beauty hiding within the sea of Andaman with a touch of pure nature. Koh Lanta is also fairly known among European tourists as the hub for midrange to luxury holiday escape and it doesn’t get more luxury than that of the island’s first and ultimate 5 star resort “Pimalai”. Tucked away surreptitiously into 100 acres of lush green tropical forest on the edge of the ocean at the stunning Kantiang beach (with direct access to their 900 meters long pristine beach! goal!). If you are looking for luxury escape to the best-kept secret island that you can simply relax, unwind, and lose yourself to the serenity of luscious greenery and endless Andaman water, Pimalai is the place to be. Wanna check in with us to our Pimalai One Bedroom Pool Villa? Right this way :)
A quick check in from Banyan Tree Bangkok. I absolutely love the view of Bangkok Bokeh Skyline from here. Giving me that “City of Light” vibe. Banyan Tree Bangkok most definitely has one of the best of Bangkok <3 We will be telling you all about our stay here at their One Bed Room Suite soon :) Good Night.
