The perfect solution to end the stress from wedding planning is to book your honeymoon at the very lush Double Pool Villa’s by Banyan Tree. Your well-deserved light at the end of the relentless wedding tunnel is a 10-hour flight away (from Australian eastern states) in Phuket, Thailand… and your new mother in law.
The house size Thai-inspired villas are the epitome of dream-like honeymoon extravagance. A private glass-walled bedroom “floats” upon a swimmable wading pool, providing a sensual and romantic atmosphere reminiscent of a boat. Another pool awaits you and your new Mrs. in a beautiful garden. Measuring 15 meters, the private infinity pool is long enough for lounging or swimming laps to accentuate your pre-wedding fitness routine. On the other side, the bathroom features separate his and her washbasins, a combined steam/shower room, and a tub with views of the lagoon and garden. Adjoining it is a large walk-in closet.
Besides wishing you could trade your home for this villa, that’s not all! Your villa comes with an on-call butler (available 24/7) who will go above and beyond to provide your foray into married life the ultimate beginning. This includes unpacking and packing your suitcase, booking tours, arranging romantic dinners in your villa, in-villa spa treatments, daily afternoon tea and anything else you call upon.
There are 2 other sections in the resort…. Not that you will ever want or need to leave the seclusion of Double Pool Villa’s. They include, Spa Sanctuary and Pool Villa’s and all share a large hotel pool with swim up bar and spa. However, they are dated and not as plush as your honeymoon haven. The beach for all 3 resorts is a short 5-minute buggy ride (or is easily accessible by complimentary hotel bikes).
Food choices within the Banyan Tree Resort are top notch and well thought out. It is just as well the daily classes in Pilates and yoga is complimentary to help burn off the extra kg’s gained around the waist line. The Thai cuisine in particular at Saffron deserves its own review it is that good! Saffron every night entertains guests with traditional music and Thai dancing.
Double Pool villa’s is the honeymoon destination you need for tranquility, beauty and the world’s best service.
Prices start at $1,200 per night.
