The great thing about Phuket island is that it offers something for everyone: family holidays, hen parties and stag dos, couple’s getaways and retirement celebrations. There is so much to do and see in this Andaman hotspot. With plenty of honeymooners and couples on engagement trips, Phuket certainly has plenty to keep loved-up couples busy. Check out some of our suggestions for a romantic holiday you will never forget.
1. Helicopter ride
For breath-taking views and a totally different experience, take to the skies with your other half. Feel your spirits soar as you glide over one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. Charter a ride with Skydance by Advance Aviation, the island’s main helicopter tour provider and create memories to last a lifetime.
2. Couples spa treatment
Get pampered side by side in one of the many luxury spas on the island. There’s nothing like relaxing in tranquil ambience, away from the humdrum of daily life. Packed with indulgent havens, Phuket is just the place to do it. Try a traditional Thai massage for a truly authentic experience. Most hotels offer a couples massage service, and you can even enjoy it on the beach with the sound of waves soothing your senses.
3. Dinner with a view
Sunset and the sea go hand in hand for a spectacular evening. Hugging the steep slopes near Karon and Patong beaches you can find multiple cliff-side restaurants offering stunning panoramic views of the coastline. Stare over the horizon as you tuck in to a delicious meal with your partner. A delight for your senses. We especially like Phuket Secret Cliff Resort restaurant for a romantic evening meal.
4. Catamaran tour of the islands
Moving on from aerial views of the ocean, take to the sea in a chartered catamaran. Search out private paradise islets with your loved one and share unforgettable moments together on the waves. If you’re looking for an exclusive experience then check out Hype Boat Clubs elite fleet of catamarans.
5. Sunday Night Market in Phuket Old Town
The boutique, Portuguese colonial streets of Phuket Old Town become vibrant walking-fares every Sunday when the night market opens. Sample a variety of local cuisines at the many stalls and be delighted by the craftsmanship of local goods and souvenirs. There are often music and dance performances to add to the jolly atmosphere.
6. Exclusive beach clubs
You are spoiled for choice when it comes to beach clubs on Phuket. It is everyone’s favourite way to make their day out at the beach extra special. Good music, cocktails and food in a sophisticated environment. Dream Beach Club on Layan beach has a great relaxed vibe for couples.
7. Go diving together
Phuket is one of the top ten diving destinations in the world and most of the diving centres that run on the island boast years of experience. Venture into uncharted territory together at famous spots such as King Cruiser wreck near the Phi Phi islands and Shark Point, where Leopard sharks cruise close to the sea floor.
8. Ton Sai Waterfall
If you have had enough of the Phuket’s beachside charm, head inland for a romantic getaway to one of the island’s waterfalls. Ton Sai is the most picturesque, and though not as large as those that can be found in Phang Nga, it certainly leaves an impression on its visitors. Follow a paved walkway through the jungle to a powerful cascade and plunge pool. Many daring couple climb the rocks to soak in the refreshing water and get those iconic Instagram shots.
