According to many, Soneva Kiri is the most stunning beach resort in the world, let alone in Thailand. Located in Koh Kood, Thailand's fourth-largest but also least populated island, Soneva Kiri is known to attract celebrities, politicians, and even royalty from around the world.

Guests can opt to stay in a villa on the perfect beach or among nature in the rain forest with each featuring incredibly chic décor and furnishings. First-class services and amenities are also huge features of Soneva Kiri.
Seeing Bangkok with ease
In Bangkok, our tour guide, Ying, was wonderful. She navigated all the sights with ease, gave us interesting tidbits on Thai culture and history, helped us pick the right food at all the restaurants, and was just a pleasure to be around. We had a great time, and it was so nice to not have to worry about any of the details.More

Asia Highlights and Sharon
Asia Highlights, specifically Sharon, has been wonderfully helpful as we get ready for a 2024 excursion to Thailand.

Thailand, Singapore, Bali
In Thailand, Tanny and Nori(Suparp), were both incredible! They were both fun, funny, and full of knowledge and made sure we got the full experience. They went the extra mile and always made sure we had cold bottled water and towels to cleanse our hands. In Singapore, Nicole was an absolute gem. She was so kind and knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction to make our day as enjoyable as possible. She helped us choose a top notch local lunch and coffee spot in China Town and taught us so much about the country! In Bali, Emon was an absolute joy. He was very knowledgeable and kind and absolutely made sure we were feeling comfortable and was willing to be flexible with us. He was fun to converse with and made our time traveling between destinations so enjoyable! I cannot recommend Asia Highlights enough! Accommodations, travel arrangements and guided tours were all a breeze.More

Large multi-generational holiday in Thailand
The holiday was wonderful. Our guides, Mr Monchai (Bangkok), and Ms Tipagorn (Tippy) (Chiang Mai) were exceptional. Travelling in a large multigenerational group with many children requires patience and our guides truly understood that. Mr Monchai and Ms Tippy shared their extensive knowledge of the many wonderful places we visited, and were flexible to take us to additional places along the way based on discussions. While everyday was busy, having them greet us with patience and a smile truly made this a memorable holiday. The hotels we stayed at were equally wonderful and went above and beyond to celebrate not only my parents 50th anniversary but also celebrate 2 milestone birthdays that occurred. We will cherish this holiday for many years to come. We hope to use Asia Highlights again.More

The best part of working with Sharon was that she maintained an open line of communication and provided answers to my question well within 12-24 hours. Additionally, Sharon was flexible and customized our vacation to my families needs. Overall great experience.More

3. Six Senses Yao Noi (Phuket)
If you are staying in Phuket and looking for a more private and adventurous stay away from the noise of regular visitors, Six Senses Yao Noi in Phang Nga Bay is the resort to consider staying at. Views galore can be enjoyed from each of the 55 villas that come complete with their own pools.
For the very best in luxury, amenities, and facilities, there are not many better places to stay in Phuket as you explore the popular island. You can experience the international wine cellar and enjoy some world-class cuisine at the many dining options.
13-Day Essence of Thailand Tour:
4. The Siam Hotel (Bangkok)
While many of the best hotels and resorts will be found in more idyllic destinations around Thailand, the bustling capital city of Bangkok does have a few of its own.
The Siam Hotel is arguably the most exclusive of them with 39 suites located along the Chao Phraya River. The suites are some of the biggest in Bangkok and definitely the plushest.
Each villa has a private pool and roof terrace and has been designed to be unique from any other at the hotel. The hotel is situated right in the heart of Bangkok, which is ideal when you need to visit local attractions.
5. Amanpuri (Phuket)
Amanpuri is one of the most exclusive resorts in Thailand and can be found on the picturesque island of Phuket.
This timeless retreat offers an idyllic setting within a huge coconut plantation, offering some superb views of both the Andaman Sea and the glorious coastline in front of it.
The Aman brand is known for its very high standards of personal service, fine dining, and luxury, which you will find at Amanpuri. If you are planning to stay on Thailand's largest island of Phuket, you will not find many, if any, resorts anywhere near as luxurious as this one.
6. Rayavadee (Krabi)
Krabi may not be as popular with visitors compared to other islands, such as Phuket and Koh Samui, but what appeals to many is that it is less crowded and less noisy.
You can enjoy a serene, relaxing, and nature-filled experience on the island. In terms of where to stay, Rayavadee should certainly be at the top of your list.
Sat right on the border of Krabi's Marine National Park, you will be able to enjoy the undoubted beauty of the dense jungles, the clear Andaman Sea, and stunning cliffs when you stay at the serene resort.
7. Four Seasons (Chiang Mai)
Overlooking the picturesque rice fields that span Mae Sa Valley, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai offers a tranquil setting away from the party scene in Chiang Mai.
8. Sri Panwa (Phuket)
A favorite haunt for many worldwide celebrities, Sri Panwa in Phuket is the pinnacle of privacy and seclusion.
You can enjoy both a lush jungle and a sublime beach within yards of the resort but also away from the crowds of visitors that you might encounter at other locations.
Guests can rent anything from a one-bedroom pool villa right up to a suite containing five bedrooms.
Sri Panwa is also renowned for having one of the best rooftop bars in Thailand. Offering stunning sea views and some fabulous chic décor, there is nowhere else you will want to be as sunset approaches.
9. Mandarin Oriental (Bangkok)
Mandarin Oriental is a huge name in luxury resorts and hotels and Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok showcases exactly why that is.
You will not find a hotel in Bangkok that can compete with this one in terms of grandness. It is little wonder that it is a popular retreat for Thai A-list celebrities, politicians, and businessmen.
10. Keemala (Phuket)
Located in the lush jungle vegetation on the hills above Kamala, the unique, quiet, and visually stunning Keemala offers 5-star accommodation away from the bustling Phuket crowds.
Tranquility, serenity, and well-being are the order of the day at this 5-star resort. Based on four imaginary tribal clans, this resort offers a world of fantasy that could have been taken from the movies.
Guests stay in tree pods, bird's nest bungalows, or tent villas that each have a pool and high-class amenities. Exploring the resort complex on its own is worth a stay in Phuket but you, of course, have all of the local attractions, beaches, and everything else that the island has to offer as well.
11. Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn (Bangkok)
As you might expect, luxury resorts and hotels come at a price and, in some cases, they are not fair prices. Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Bangkok takes a different approach by being known as one of the best value hotels in the country. This is not at the expense of any luxury either.
12. Banyan Tree (Phuket)
If you were to picture a luxury hotel that is located in a true tropical paradise, such as Phuket, we can bet that Banyan Tree Phuket will match what you have imagined.
Guests have access to an exclusive 3 kilometers of beach, more than two dozen restaurants and bars, a golf course, and, of course, the sort of service and elegance that you would expect from a leading luxury hotel.
There is so much to do inside the complex that those looking for the ultimate in relaxation do not even need to leave. For those who love to explore, there is the small matter of the gorgeous island of Phuket to check out.
13. Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle (Chiang Rai)
The third Four Seasons resort on our list, the Tented Camp Golden Triangle is, without a doubt, the best accommodation that you will find in Chiang Rai.
There are just 15 luxurious tent-style suites, each offering a very generous 581 square feet of living space. An outdoor deck complete with a hot tub allows for some relaxing nights in while the resort also provides all-inclusive jungle experiences that should not be missed.
14. Six Senses Samui (Koh Samui)
Situated at the top of Koh Samui is one of Thailand's best luxury resorts. The 5-star Six Senses Samui offers 66 villas and will deliver what most people define as a paradise for their guests.
The majority of villas have a private swimming pool while the environment in and around the resort has an atmosphere that is perfect for a long weekend on one of Thailand"s most popular islands.
15. 137 Pillars House (Chiang Mai)
Finishing off our list of the 15 best luxury hotels and resorts in Thailand is the award-winning hotel called 137 Pillars House.
With a mix of historic architecture and modern amenities and facilities, this 5-star hotel has 30 large and unique suites that are situated close to many of the major attractions in Chiang Mai.
The Ping River is just a stone"s throw from the hotel while temples, including Wat Gate, are no more than a couple of minutes' walk away.
Guests can enjoy a spa, gymnasium, large swimming pool, and as many as seven different dining options during their stay.
