Ko Lanta Honeymoon Travel Guide
Discover Ko Lanta – the ideal honeymoon destination for couples wishing to ‘get away from it all’ in a secluded and serene island environment.
Ko Lanta has a quiet, laid-back ambience, with long, uncrowded golden- and white-sand beaches lapped by crystal clear waters that are perfect for kayaking, swimming, snorkelling and diving..
Choose from several soft white-sand beaches that lie along a 25km-long stretch of the west coast, separated only by picturesque jungle-clad promontories and linked by a paved coastal road.
Or play ‘Robinson Crusoe’ for a day or longer on one of the secluded beaches that lie to the south of the island.
To the south of Koh Lanta lies the islands of Ko Ngai, Ko Kradan and Ko Mook, which offer total seclusion, gorgeous beaches and great snorkelling.
Should you tire of lazing on the beach it’s easy to go snorkelling, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or fishing – perfect for active honeymoon couples.
Inland, explore the densely forested hills on foot, motorcycle, car, bicycle or elephant. Along the way, experience the local culture and customs of the indigenous population, a mix of Muslim, Chinese and a clan of Chao Ley (sea gypsies).
You can even brush up your Thai cooking or Thai boxing skills with a lesson or two.
Ko Lanta provides a choice of budget or luxury accommodation, including Rawi Warin Resort & Spa, Pimalai Resort and Spa and Layana Resort & Spa (photo), all of which offer a range of 5-star comforts for honeymoon couples from their beachfront manicured gardens.
