Thailand is a land of fun, culture and adventure. Its paradisiacal islands attract visitors from all over the globe while the land to the north is a trekker’s heaven laden with tropical jungles and gushing waterfalls. Thailand is dotted with glittering temples and magnificent monuments, and regularly celebrates colourful festivals. As Thailand’s capital, Bangkok is a diverse city, home to flamboyant temples, golden statues of Buddha and lively markets. Thailand also happens to be home to some of the world’s most ultra-luxurious resorts, whether it be beach enclaves, urban hotels or jungle retreats. Here’s our selection of the top 5 most exclusive and luxurious resorts in Thailand, and while all of them are stunning hotels, the number one resort is an absolutely amazing, out-of-this-world place.
