The Best Luxury Thailand Resorts & Hotels | Travel Guide

The diversity of landscapes is one of Thailand’s best assets, with thick rainforests, buzzing cities and brilliant white beaches embellishing its scenery. From the north-eastern jungle clad mountains, rice paddies of the central plateau, and the beautiful islands scattered off its southern shores, these are some of the most beautiful places Thailand has to offer. Our local guides can take you to some of these iconic viewpoints by foot or by boat. However, there are some jaw-dropping panoramas from the comfort of your own private villa – here are some of our favourites.

Anantara Golden Triangle Hotel & Elephant Camp

Anantara Golden Triangle

Boasting one Northern Thailand’s most picturesque locations, Anantara Golden Triangle Hotel sits on a lush hillside with spectacular views from each of the rooms, over the point where the borders of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand are. It has its own ethical elephant camp where the mahouts will show you how to handle the enormous beasts, go on a trek by the river or through the forest, rice fields and bamboo groves, join in with elephant bathing time or discover tips for surviving in the forest. For something really unique guests can spend a night in the elephant camp in one of the ‘Jungle Bubbles’, located in the jungle on raised wooden decks. The transparent glass domes offer uninterrupted views of the elephants as well as the incredible starry sky at night.

Pimalai Resort & Spa Koh Lanta, Krabi


One of the prettiest places in Thailand is Pimalai, a beach resort on the Island of Koh Lanta in Krabi province, surrounded by 25 hectares of jungle clad national park and fronting 900 metres of beautiful beach. The impressive Pool Villas are built high on the hillside, each surrounded by rainforest and enclosed within its own walled compound, guaranteeing the perfect amount of privacy and seclusion. Each has its own infinity edge swimming pool overlooking the magnificent bay and tropical landscape.

Six Senses Hotel Yao Noi, Thailand

Set high up on a cliffside with breath-taking views over Phang Nga Bay’s iconic limestone pinnacles, the Six Senses Yao Noi private pool villas will make you feel like you are residing in a plush treehouse. Panoramic Pool Villas have uninterrupted views but for the ultimate romantic escape choose ‘The View’, a huge one-of-a-kind villa with epic views from the infinity edge pool, sunken dining area and mezzanine floor. It boasts its own private cinema and a glass floor at the end of the king-size bed offers views of the waterfall cascading through the jungle beneath.

Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, Thailand

Located 30 minutes from Thailand’s cultural capital, Chiang Mai in the Mae Rim Valley, the location of the Four Seasons is perfect for a rural Thai escape with access to all the highlights of northern Thailand. The resort is built around working rice terraces with breath-taking views across the paddies and mountains in the distance. There are 98 spacious pavilions, but we’d recommend the higher floors of the Rice Terrace Pavilions for the best views.
