Are you planning a romantic getaway? Dreaming of sunshine, sandy beaches, palm trees and strolling arm in arm with your other half? Then, look no further!

Phuket is a very photogenic part of Thailand

Phuket, the ultimate tropical gem, is an ideal destination for couples visiting Thailand. Picture yourselves lounging on pristine beaches with your toes in the warm, golden sands, as you watch the Andaman Sea’s turquoise waves. Sunsets here are pure magic too, painting the sky with dusky hues of orange and pink.

When we visited recently, I couldn’t believe how many picturesque resorts there were. Some have private beaches, luxurious spas or fine-dining restaurants. Others, you’ll be able to tuck yourself away in a private suite with a jacuzzi on your balcony! How dreamy does that sound?

There’s a main swimming pool with elegant day beds, plus the resort offers several places to drink and dine. I loved lazing on a sun lounger under the palm trees on the beach, watching the waves lap the shore. There was always a lovely breeze down there and it felt so peaceful.

Cape Panwa’s most unique feature? It has its own tram! There’s a little funicular that takes you from the main pool area down to the beach. So quirky! Trust me though, you’ll appreciate not having to climb up the steep steps after a zen sunbathing session!
