Phuket for Two

Whether you’re on honeymoon or just stoking the romantic embers of your relationship, a trip to Phuket is an ideal way to spend alone time with your special someone in a truly romantic destination. The island lives and breathes intimacy and has many nooks and crannies perfect for couples, including award-winning restaurants, private cruises, couples spa packages, fun day trips and more. If you’re in the market for a little quality one-on-one time, read on to discover our top tips for dining, relaxing, cruising, exploring and indulging on the island as a couple.

1. DINING

There are many romantic restaurants in Phuket and to compile the list of the best, we would need to write a series of blogs! So we shall compromise by sharing with you our top ten picks. Keep in mind that these restaurants are among the best on the island, so they are popular, and if you want a premium seat, it’s highly recommended to book in advance. And now, here are our top picks for a romantic tête-à-tête on the island. If you like delicious food in an intimate setting, head to La Gaetana in Phuket Town, Panwa House in Panwa on the southeast corner of the island or Blue Elephant also in Phuket Town. For an incredible vista, we recommend Tunk Ka Café, 360 Phuket Pavilion or Wok Pagoda. And lastly, for a truly seaside seat, dine at Joe’s Downstairs, Mom Tri’s Kitchen, Da Maurizio, The Boathouse, Diavolo or La Gritta.

2. RELAXING

If you choose to stay in a beautiful Surin Terrace Room at MANATHAI, there is a good possibility you won’t want to leave it! This spacious room will entice you to linger and relax in the privacy of your secluded garden terrace. Spend the afternoon lounging in tranquillity and take regular cooling dips in your private plunge pool, an exclusive oasis surrounded by tropical greenery. The room interiors subtly blend authentic Thai design with modern touches to create a welcoming, romantic atmosphere. Each Surin Terrace Room features an en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, plus fragrant complimentary amenities.

3. CRUISING

Phang Nga Bay is a muse-see when visiting Phuket. The stunning beauty will inspire awe and make for an unforgettable experience. Here scores of idyllic islands rise to the sky, spectacular sunsets abound, a warm sea breeze flutters by and there is no madding crowd to distract. Cruising on a traditional Chinese Junk-rigged schooner is possibly the best way of all to experience this incredible marine landscape. It might not be as romantic as a private cruise, as you won’t be alone on the boat and the food is not a candlelight gourmet feast, but exploring Phang Nga Bay via junk is a truly magical experience. Unlike a speedboat or smaller vessel, a junk is an extremely comfortable and smooth way to sail about this majestic aquatic playground.

4. EXPLORING

Phang Nga Bay is without a doubt Thailand’s most fascinating landscape, an unforgettable vista that you must see with your own eyes if you crossed half the globe just to come to here. As mentioned above, there are several means to explore this magical area: junk boat, speedboat, super yacht, kayak, etc. For us, the last option is the best choice. It’s only really from a sea kayak that you can intimately get in amongst the smallest and most alluring of the hidden ‘hongs’ (enclosed lagoons), as they are only accessible to larger vessels at high tide. Drifting silently through a hong in the pitch dark with only a torch, and perhaps some luminescent plankton, to guide your way is a truly surreal experience.

5. INDULGING

Everyone likes a bit of a back rub from time to time, or a foot massage. But until you’ve tried a spa treatment in Thailand you haven’t experienced how good it can be. Thais turned the simple back rub into an art form thousands of years ago, and have been refining it ever since. In Phuket that refinement is at its all-time peak. Ever dreamed of spending an entire day being pampered? Or of being massaged with honey, coconut or chocolate? For example, The Spa at MANATHAI offers one of Thailand’s oldest and most effective wellness therapies, the herbal compress massage. The massage uses acupressure techniques and light stretching followed by the application of powerful natural herbs through a cloth ‘bolus’ to help detoxify the body and boost the immune system. This amazing therapeutic experience can be undertaken as a couple in a double room.
