Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa

Most of my fellow Bangkokians consider Chiang Mai their usual holiday destination. Some of them have even adopted the culture-rich yet trendy northern province as their second residence.

Conrad Bangkok

After the pandemic, travel trends have changed and travellers now tend to stay in hotels that have implemented eco-friendly and sustainable practices. The Conrad Bangkok operated by Hilton Worldwide is one such hotel that can attract environmentally conscious tourists because it is committed to sustainable practices including reducing waste and connecting to local communities.

Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort

A sandy path of the Shore Walk materialises in front of the Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort during low tide and the Sun reflects on the Andaman Sea waves, creating a mesmerising backdrop. Visitors can take advantage of this opportunity to explore the marine environment surrounding the tranquil Kamala Beach, while watching the locals demonstrate their fishing prowess.

Holiday Inn Resort Samui Bophut Beach

The best time to get vitamin D is in the early morning when the Sun reflects on the clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand. I reclined by the ocean without a mask to inhale the fresh air on a private sand sundeck close to Holiday Inn Resort Samui Bophut Beach.

Chiva-Som Hua Hin

After hours, I switched off the computer and left my cubicle. When I looked out the office's window, I saw high-rise buildings and winding motorways. Cars were stuck in a traffic jam day in, day out. It dawned on me that something was missing in life. I did not know what it was, but I would like to sort out my mind. A few days later, I took a break and left the city for a tranquil retreat.

Le Méridien Bangkok

My primary doubt as I was checking into Le Méridien Bangkok two weeks ago was whether the stay would be worth writing about.

Avani + Khao Lak Resort

After a 60-minute drive from Phuket International Airport to the new Avani + Khao Lak Resort, I arrived in time to take in the colours of twilight. As the Sun set over Phangnga's horizon, the sky began to transition from a bright blue to pink and orange shade.

My Beach Resort Phuket

A yacht fleet was drifting leisurely in Chalong Bay as storm clouds were gathering when I arrived at My Beach Resort Phuket. I lounged to enjoy the nice sea breeze that flowed over the lobby. My Beach Resort Phuket has been designated as a beachfront boutique resort in Michelin Guide, featuring sea view rooms that provide a stunning sunset.

Dewa Phuket Resort and Villas

It was sprinkling when I traversed a narrow lane from Dewa Phuket Resort and Villas to beautiful Nai Yang Beach in the late afternoon. The earthy scent assaulted my nose as the rain clouds swept over the sky, set against the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea and a white sand beach. This scene seemed like it came straight out of a painting depicting a romantic holiday during the rainy season.
