A holiday destination, cultural treat and scenic delight all rolled into one, Thailand is a country that never ceases to amaze. This offer incorporates some of my favourite places in Thailand: The Slate Hotel in Phuket, Elephant Hills in Khao Sok and X10 Khaolak Resort in Khao Lak.
The Slate, Phuket
Phuket is a magnificent location connected to the mainland and airport by a road bridge and with at least 40 official beaches.
The best beaches are to be found on the island’s west coast, including the beautiful Nai Yang, part of the protected Sirinat National Park and home to one of my very favourite hotels, The Slate, perfect as part of this exciting multi-centre Thai adventure.
This exceptional resort, just a short drive from Phuket airport, is wonderfully positioned on a spacious property adjacent to the white sandy shores of the cerulean Andaman Sea and offers a wholly immersive experience for couples and families to absorb themselves in.
The unique décor transports you to a bygone era sprinkled with the touch of modern times with attention to detail consistent throughout all the way down to the room essentials.
All gorgeous suites have oversized bathtubs, some of which come with the added twist of being on your private terrace.
It offers three swimming pools, one catering specifically for families, sublime cuisine using deliciously nutritious locally sourced ingredients and an abundance of guest activities for all ages.
It is said that an elephant never forgets, and I guarantee you will never forget the unique adventure and the lifetime memories that await at Elephant Hills. This is one experience that should be on every Thailand visitor’s bucket list.
Elephant Hills is a sustainable camp located in Khao Sok National Park, a 2.5 hour drive from Phuket that combines the idea of an African safari with the Thai tropical rainforest, offering a luxury camping experience in the jungle.
Each tent has comfy beds, a full en-suite shower room which even comes with a hairdryer, a hammock and is fully stocked with all amenities.
You will meet the elephants and have an opportunity to interact, observe and feed them in their natural environment - a true once-in-a-lifetime experience.
X10 Khaolak Resort
The five-star X10 Khaolak Resort is a tranquil tropical family escape on Khao Lak’s beautiful coast located in the Bang La On area that offers a distinct Andaman feel with its modern decor and typical Thai hospitality.
Surrounded by nature, golden sand beaches, and the clear-blue waters of the Andaman Sea, it houses five swimming pools, provides a variety of dining options, extensive spa and fitness facilities and a dedicated kids club.
