For a thrilling mix of cultural treasures, warm hospitality, tropical landscapes, delectable cuisine and natural beauty, there’s no destination more suited than Thailand. Discover some of the country’s highlights on a twin-centre honeymoon with Amari hotels, encompassing the buzzing capital of Bangkok followed by post-wedding rest and relaxation on the dream island of Koh Samui.
The phrase ‘shop ‘til you drop’ was made for Bangkok, and your first stop Amari Watergate Bangkok is in a prime position for doing just that. Situated in the Pratunam area of the city, Amari Watergate Bangkok is in close proximity to a number of large malls combining international and local brands. To truly experience the city’s hustle and bustle, search for treasures from fabrics and clothing to arts and crafts at Pratunam market, mere steps from the hotel’s doors. Roam the busy streets, bag a bargain or visit historic cultural sites such as the Grand Palace, before retreating to Amari Watergate Bangkok’s welcome hub of calm. Kick off married life with a dip in the refreshing pool on the 8th floor overlooking the city skyscrapers.
After Bangkok’s thrills, head to Koh Samui. Just a short flight away in the Gulf of Thailand, the ultimate island retreat feels worlds away from the city and a dream location to unwind in style. A beautiful beachfront resort on a secluded stretch of Chaweng’s white sands, Amari Koh Samui provides the ideal spot to soak up the sun and savour the laid back Thai way of life. Relax in one of the hotel’s two pools; take in the Instagrammable views of the glittering ocean and share romantic beachfront walks along the shore.
Relax after the thrill of the wedding at Amari’s signature Breeze Spa, the spa which aims to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face. The couples’ treatment suit at Amari Koh Samui overlooks the beach. Enjoy being pampered whilst listening to the lapping waves for a special honeymoon treat, whilst any remaining wedding stress will slip away with a signature Mood Therapy Treatment. Simply pick which mood you’d like to feel – Dreamy, Serene, Rejuvenated, Invigorated or Energised – and let the therapists do the rest.
The days will slip by in a haze of beachside relaxation and tropical cocktails, and when you’re ready to explore, the friendly Amari Hosts are on hand equipped with local knowledge and top tips to experience the best of the area.
The nearby Angthong National Marine Park is an unmissable day trip during your time in Koh Samui. One of Thailand’s most iconic sights, forty-two jagged islands poke through the turquoise waters, with waterfalls, mangrove forests and hidden lagoons waiting to be explored. Visitors can experience the area’s natural beauty by kayaking, snorkeling, wildlife spotting or simply reclining on the beach.
Back at the hotel after a day of memory making, Amari Koh Samui offers a number of dining options to satisfy all palates. All-day restaurant Amaya Food Gallery showcases fresh Asian produce complete with exciting live cooking stations and street food favourites. For those craving Italian cuisine, head to Prego, considered the best Italian restaurant on the island, offering delicious dishes and signature cocktails.
Amari, the hotel brand which reflects the warmth and energy of modern Asia, has partnered with Affinity Weddings to offer one lucky couple an idyllic six-night honeymoon in Thailand including two nights at Amari Watergate Bangkok and four nights at Amari Koh Samui.
