Thailand is a diverse country with a lot to offer wherever you decide to visit. But below i will outside some areas that are think are suited to different groups:
Koh Tao, Koh Samui & Koh Phangan- These islands are very popular with backpackers, particularly because of the parties that occur here, and the famous Full Moon Party which is held monthly. However, if you visit in the quieter months of the year and in quieter areas of these islands, then you’ll experience a very romantic vibe. Snorkelling is very popular in Koh Tao too!
Phuket is a very popular area in Thailand for holiday makers, and you find lots of families from all over the world visit here. There are many luxurious resorts (many of which we’ve mentioned above), so if you seek a family-friendly holiday spot, then Phuket may be for you.
Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and Pai are all beautiful areas in Thailand but offer a very different vibe to the beaches of the South. Instead the north is steeped in culture, beautiful temples and amazing forests and jungles. This is the type of place where you'll discover amazing waterfalls, hot springs and unique hikes.
This is another popular place in Thailand for families to go on holiday. There are lots of beautiful beaches, and great day trips nearby, and it’s a great place to go hiking and eat lots of delicious Thai food.
These are again two popular areas for backpackers, and younger couples. I wouldn’t recommend Phi Phi for families, but if you’re looking to party and visit some beautiful beaches, then it’s a great place to start.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. It doesn't have any beautiful beaches on offer, but what it lacks in beaches, it makes up for in cultural beauty. There are amazing temples, lots of great markets (including the iconic floating ones), and some amazing activities. People either love or hate Bangkok, but I love it!
So there you have it, my guide to the best private pool villas Thailand has to offer.
I hope this list has inspired you to visit Thailand and enjoy some of the amazing accommodation that’s on offer here! If you’ve got any other amazing Thailand villas with private pools to recommend, or you’ve stayed in one of those above, drop us a comment below!
