Luxury Thailand Holidays

Land of smiles


Holidays in Thailand offer the perfect combination of peaceful escapism and exotic adventure. Benefitting from a tropical climate all year round, Thailand boasts golden sun and balmy temperatures, making it an ideal holiday destination for those looking for relaxation on the beach. The pristine white sands of Thailand’s endless coastline are enveloped by the crystal clear waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans and lush green jungles inland. Palm trees frame the horizon and the coastline offers numerous spots where you can soak in the breath taking scenery, including the island of Koh Samui and Krabi’s stunning craggy cliffs. The island of Phuket offers a mix of outstanding beaches, national parks and buzzing nightlife.

Thailand also has a rich and diverse culture which spans centuries. Old Buddhist temples tell the story of Thailand’s ancient history and can be discovered anywhere from the centre of a busy city to a remote village in the middle of the countryside. As the capital of Thailand, Bangkok doesn’t disappoint. In contrast to the tranquillity of the country’s coastline, the city is the place where traditional Thai culture combines with modern luxury, where skyscrapers stand tall next to market traders, and tuk-tuks zig zag in the crowded streets.

Luxury Holidays in Thailand

Luxury holidays in Thailand are unrivalled for their opulence, tranquillity and incredible cultural highlights. Those who wish to get a taste of the buzzing atmosphere of Bangkok should look no further than the Shangri-La Bangkok. Famed for its luxurious interiors and world class facilities, this hotel is ideally located for holidaymakers who want to become fully immersed in everything the lively city has to offer.

Travellers who wish to escape into a tropical paradise are spoilt for choice as a result of Thailand’s countless five star hotels. Two favourites are the Banyan Tree Samui, nestled next to the peaceful waters of the Gulf of Thailand, and the Keemala hotel, an outstanding hillside retreat surrounded by the jungle of western Phuket.

At Sovereign, our Trusted Advisers are committed to providing an exceptional service. A dedication to providing outstanding luxury holidays in Thailand allows our customers to benefit from incredible, hand picked resorts, outstanding destinations and additional extras which always provide the wow factor.

Leanne Hall

I was so surprised by how varied the different parts of Thailand are. I enjoyed everything from exploring Koh Samui's temples and relaxing on postcard-perfect beaches in Phuket, to shopping at local markets in Bangkok. The ultimate highlight, though - feeding an elephant for the first time. Did I mention the Thai food is out of this world too?

Destinations in Thailand
The Thai capital of Bangkok sprawls out along the Chao Phraya River, just north of the Gulf of Thailand. Gilded palaces, temples and skyscrapers light up the whole waterfront.
Khao Lak
Khao Lak showcases some of Thailand’s best beaches. Once a necklace of villages, this south-west region is now a string of laid-back beach resorts with a palm and mountain backdrop.
Koh Samui
Koh Samui is one of biggest islands in Thailand. It’s long been known as a luxury retreat, thanks to the beachside spa hotels that loop around its rainforest interior. 
Krabi lies just across the water from Phuket. This is travel-magazine Thailand, where longtail boats glide between towering islands, rainforests and white-gold beaches.
Phuket is the most-wanted island in Thailand. It’s so big it feels like part of the mainland, bundling together neon-lit cities, mountaintop Buddhist temples and chic beach retreats.

When to go

Thailand has a tropical climate, which means it’s hot and humid for most of the year. Rainy months vary depending on where you are in Thailand: in south-western areas like Phuket, the monsoon season starts around April and finishes in October, while south-east destinations like Koh Samui see more rain between September and December (there’s still plenty of sunshine between showers, though). The hottest months are March to June, although humidity is high and average temperatures can push 40°C. Wait until after the rainy season if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures – between December and February, averages stick to the high 20s and early 30s.

Visa Information

British passport holders do not require a visa for stays of up to 30 days.


Tipping is not expected in Thailand, although most hotels and restaurants will include a 10% service charge.
