MORE ABOUT THAILAND

Often referred to as the travel hub of Southeast Asia, Thailand is all encompassing. It offers the likes of lush jungles, divine beaches, a metropolis overflowing with opportunity, and the kind of gastronomic scene that can convert even the pickiest of eaters. Thailand has a variety of different tours, so if bathing with elephants one day and perfecting age-old recipes with a local family the next sounds like your sort of thing, you’re on the right track.  

FLY INTO BANGKOK

If Las Vegas had an older sibling, we think it would be Bangkok. Much larger and much older, Bangkok is a city that never rests; a city where rooftop bars are a nightly occasion and hotels are synonymous with luxury – only the royal palaces are real and every street is brimming with history. Thanks to our in-house Travel Experts, we know the best place for an evening sundowner just as well as we know how to beat the crowds at Wat Arun.

GET CULTURED IN CHIANG MAI

The north of Thailand is the perfect place to visit for the people wanting to get acquainted with the vibrant and infatuating culture of this country. Cities like Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are packed tight with market stalls, street-food vendors, quaint yoga studies and even smaller local galleries. While gaining popularity, it maintains an ambiance of intimacy, and Black Tomato can ensure your luxury holiday here is special beyond belief.  

GO OUT WITH A KOH

With hundreds of Thai islands to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down the few that really tickle your fancy. Koh Samui is home to the best luxury resorts in Thailand, Koh Lipe is best for romantics, and Koh Tao is frequented for its dazzling diving spots. One thing that’s for sure: whichever you decide, turquoise waters and fine-sand beaches are awaiting your arrival.

Deciding where to stay in such a massive country is no easy feat. With hotel options ranging from tented camps in Chiang Mai and dreamy villas on sun-drenched islands all the way to charming boutiques hidden behind a bustling Bangkok street, it’s our job to ensure you end up dreaming exactly where you dreamed of.  

THE BEACHES

The beach – it’s where we all go to unwind, decompress, and get our fix of Vitamin D. In Thailand, however, the beaches come flanked by impressive limestone mountains and the shores are teeming with charming longtail boats, which makes it all the more enticing. To experience all of this with a splash of luxury, the Six Senses Yao Noi should be at the very top of your Thailand bucket-list.

THE JUNGLE

Maybe you think of ancient temples and pristine beaches before you think of damp and dense greenery, but this kind of vegetation defines northern Thailand – and its beautiful. The Four Seasons Tented Camp outside of Chiang Rai ticks all of the boxes: it’s surrounded by a bamboo forest, is home to an elephant rehabilitation centre and invites guests to pamper themselves at an open-air spa.

THE CITY

Bangkok is the buzzing hive, the melting pot, and the main attraction of Southeast Asia, which is why we feel confidently that it should rank high on your list of must-sees. Perched on the Chao Phraya River sits the Peninsula hotel, a beacon of timeless Thai elegance and the ideal place to call home while getting acquainted with this captivating urban expanse.
