When it comes to accommodation, Thailand is one place where you’re going to find an extensive variety. If you’re travelling with a large family and children, there are dozens of large resort facilities around the country to suit all kinds of budgets. And likewise, if you’re a newly-wed couple or have been inseparable for years, there are plenty of intimate settings for you and your special someone to enjoy the spectacular cultural experience that Thailand offers.
You’ll also find that a lot of the hotels and resorts in Thailand offer complete all-inclusive packages, which means that once you’ve paid for and booked your accommodation, you won’t have to pay anything more once you arrive!
Sunwing Kamala Beach Resort – Located in Phuket this is a fantastic option for families travelling with young children. Sitting right on the beach, this impressive facility offers large outdoor swimming pools as well as close access to all of the tourism and excitement outside the hotel’s property. Another bonus to this place is that if you’re travelling with a few kids, there are suites available which are large enough to fit two adults and up to four children!
Centara Karon Resort – Also located in Phuket, the Centara Karon Resort has its own playground, swimming pools, water slide and other hotel facilities to keep you all entertained. Set just a little back from Karon Beach, this place is a winner for all families who stay, and you’re even able to get rooms that will fit both parents and three kids.
Holiday Inn Resort Krabi – Sitting right on Ao Nang Beach in Krabi, the immaculate pools and rooms of this hotel are perfect for families of any size looking to unwind in paradise. The value you get at the Holiday Inn Resort Krabi, for a hotel right on the beach with superb views, is something you’ll rarely find anywhere else.
Cape Panwa Hotel – While this is just as suitable for families, it’s a little more delicate and intimate than where you’d usually like to take your kids. Located in Phuket, its charm is in the beautiful simplicity of the architecture, location and hotel facilities. Just off the beach and lined with swaying palm trees, this is an idyllic and quiet place for you and that special someone to take some time away from the commotion of modern life.
Kata Beach Resort & Spa – Another great option for families, but with a fancy quality that’s probably going to be better suited to couples or those with older children. Sitting right on Kata Beach in Phuket, you’ll have all the benefits of an incredible hotel with immaculate swimming pool, as well as the ocean right on your door step. If you’re travelling as a couple, you might also like to indulge yourselves with some time at the hotel’s spa where you’ll get one of the best massages in Phuket.
Katathani Resort – Sitting close to Kata Beach in Phuket, this dreamy resort offers luxury by the ocean. With architecturally stunning swimming pools donning the grounds of the hotel, you’ll be able to make the difficult choice of either swimming on site or taking a quick stroll across the sand to the ocean.
A lot of people have the perception of Thailand that everything is going to be much cheaper than where you’d find it anywhere else. Drinks, food, activities – everything that makes a holiday in paradise perfect. But in some cases, this isn’t so true. Thailand isn’t as cheap as it once was with most of the high-density resort areas charging on average $6 for a beer, and cocktails from anywhere up to $10 each. And on top of that, a lot of the resorts in Thailand don’t actually include taxes in their advertised pricing, which means that in some instances you’ll end up paying another 10% on top of the costs you’ve already accounted for. So for those reasons, we’d recommend that you look to some of the best all-inclusive accommodation deals Thailand has on offer!
Thavorn Beach Village, Thavorn Palm Beach Resort and Phuket Marriott all have some incredible all-inclusive options on offer. Typically, they’ll include all of your meals and most of the drinks you could want while on holiday – usually local beers, cocktails and soft drinks. With these options being relatively affordable for anyone, you’ll end up saving a lot of money just by enjoying a few drinks by your resort’s swimming pool!
