Best 5 Star Phuket Honeymoon Resorts
When you’re researching Phuket Honeymoon Hotels you’ll notice prices can vary wildly within the 5 star accommodation category.
Here are some things for you to consider when comparing hotel properties:
- How old is the property? Many of the more dated luxury properties were built in the 80s and 90s and still have an old school aesthetic. For couples looking to book a more affordable honeymoon in Phuket you can enjoy a suite or villa experience for half the price at Le Meridien, Westin Siray Bay and Dusit Thani compared to more luxurious properties like Banyan Tree, InterContinental and Melia.
- When are you traveling? High season in Phuket is December to March. You can likely find a more affordable Phuket Honeymoon Package in the shoulder season (October and November) or in the low season May through September.
- What are the accomodation options? Properties that have guest rooms are always more affordable, or splurge on a luxurious suite with an oversized balcony or over-the-top villa with a private pool if your budget allows.
- Phuket Honeymoon Package: contact the resort to inform them you are booking a honeymoon to inquire about special package deals that might include your room, couples spa treatment or complimentary dinner at the resorts fine dining restaurant. If you’re booking the trip outside of high season you may even get a free room upgrade!
- Honeymoon Welcome: each luxury hotel in Phuket offers its own unique honeymoon welcome to greet couples upon check in. Talented staff create swans and elephants out of bath towels, sprinkle a plush king sized bed with flower petals, fill the room with celebratory balloons and even provide champagne on ice and a decadent slice of chocolate cake.
