Resorts in Thailand

Most of the best resorts in Thailand are located in Koh Samui, Phuket, and Krabi. Often they are located directly on the beach, surrounded by tropical gardens.They are always elegant and well-designed, with a definite Thai flavor but modern style. Rooms are spacious (at least 45 sqm), and have direct access to the swimming pool.

You will find resorts with 3, 4, or 5 stars. 5-star resorts are of course the most luxurious ones, with bigger rooms, private villas and higher prices.

For example, one night in a Deluxe Room at Amari Vouge in Krabi will be about USD 200. 4-star hotels offerhigh-quality service,but they are not as luxurious as the 5-star ones.
