1st Choice for Holiday Rentals on Koh Phangan

 

Koh Phangan Honeymoon

Koh Phangan is an idyllic choice for a honeymoon. The island is much less developed than nearby Koh Samui, but still boasts a wide range of accommodation choices, with a number of new high-end resorts now completed right on the beach in stunning bays like Tong Nai Pan on the north coast and Had Yao on the west. There are also a number of luxury private villas available for rent around the island, with breathtaking views and comfortable facilities, not to mention personalized on-site services. These villas make for a dream honeymoon as they offer total privacy and absolute indulgence for couples looking for that memorable, enchanting holiday in paradise.

Koh Phangan has come a long way since its backpacker days. Although still well known for the monthly Full Moon Party, which attracts up to 20 000 revellers to Had Rin Beach in peak season, the island has diversified to offer a variety of experiences that suit a range of tastes and budgets. The beaches on the northeast coast beaches sit in idyllic protected bays, some still best reached by fishing boat as the roads are unpaved and climb steeply over the central mountains. To the northwest a string of picture perfect bays can be accessed by road from the main port in Thongsala. All offer a choice of activities beyond simply lying on the beach, whether it's massage, fishing, snorkelling or practising yoga and meditation. This means honeymooners on Koh Phangan can combine total relaxation with excursions and even a little adventure, spending the evenings dining by the ocean or sipping cocktails in a beachside bar.

A leisurely drive down the southeast coast of Koh Phangan, finishing in Had Rin is a nice way to spend a day. This part of the island remains very Thai, especially inland from the sea where villages pepper the coast road before it climbs steeply before dropping into party town. Baan Tai is a good example of an original Thai fishing village, some of the old wooden houses now host a handful of stylish shops, but the atmosphere remains very laid back and the friendly local people smile as you wander past their homes. The contrast between old and new means honeymooners have plenty of opportunity to take photos that will become treasured memories.

Of course, many couples like to combine social time with peace and seclusion and for party lovers Had Rin is hard to beat. Even if you visit Koh Phangan between Full Moon gatherings there are plenty of lively bars and clubs open every night of the week and the tourist town that backs the beach also boasts some excellent shopping and dining opportunities. Had Rin has a flavour all of its own, a mecca for international travellers from around the globe, but still very quaint when compared with more developed beach resorts in Europe, or even those on island like Koh Samui and Phuket. Combining this unique experience with the quieter, more natural side of life allows honeymoon couples that choose Koh Phangan to mix and match their holiday and enjoy the ultimate tropical island celebration.
