Every newly-married couple deserves the perfect honeymoon to begin their lives together, with the tropical Thai island of Koh Samui the perfect place. Beauty, warmth, white-sand beaches, delicious food and an exotic ambience are all found at the resorts, and a Lamai honeymoon in a private beachside resort villa is as romantic as it gets.
Lamai was the first Samui fishing village to open its arms and doors to visitors from overseas and, although it has fine facilities, it’s not allowed itself to become overdeveloped as has nearby Chaweng. Giving a quieter experience within an almost bohemian atmosphere, Lamai is the perfect choice for your honeymoon.
Couples searching for honeymoon paradise can choose between hotel or boutique resort accommodation, with most deciding on a private villa in the small resorts backing the more northern area of Lamai away from the town centre with its more commercial aspect, nightclubs, and bars. Villas are set just a few steps from the sands, and many boast private infinity pools with great views over tropical gardens and the azure ocean.
There’s a choice between traditional Thai architecture and its elegant, modern version, and most villa interiors are richly furnished with the famous Thai handicrafts and silks, giving a lush, luxurious feel. internet access, flat screen satellite channel TVs, ultra-modern ensuite bathrooms with luxury toiletries and even Jacuzzis are standard in the upscale boutique resorts, and the beds are huge and comfortable.
Your Lamai honeymoon is at its romantic best in the cool of the evenings with a candlelit dinner overlooking the beach and a glorious sunset, complemented perfectly by the hiss of the waves and the glitter of the fishing boats’ lights. The sky seems huge here at night due to the clear air, and planning your life together against this stunning backdrop is something you’ll never forget.
Lamai Beach is set within an easy drive of the unspoiled Muslim south of the island with its quaint fishing villages and lush coconut plantations, where life goes on as it always did. Another short drive brings you to the undeveloped northern peninsula and peaceful Choeng Mon beach with its secluded little white-sand bays and warm, inviting waters.
The region has everything you’ll ever need for the perfect Lamai honeymoon, from luxury accommodation at a surprisingly reasonable cost through a raft of relaxing spa treatments and Thai massages. For a fun night out, small Lamai town offers several nightclubs and a good choice of bars as well as gourmet restaurants set in famous-name hotels and upscale resorts.
