Relax on palm-fringed sands with an All Inclusive holiday to Thailand
A flight of around 11 hours is all that lies between you and your have-it-all holiday to Thailand.
From vibrant cities to sleepy coastal resorts, All Inclusive holidays to Thailand come in all shapes and sizes. However, there’s a few things you’re always guaranteed when you visit this exotic paradise – breathtaking landscapes and a warm welcome.
All Inclusive hotels are commonplace here and offer a perfect way to enjoy a hassle-free break with all the trimmings.
Khao Lak boasts a handful of luxury resorts that blend into the natural scenery and face out onto unspoilt beaches. Days here are centred around relaxation, with the hotel’s beachside bars and restaurants providing most of the entertainment and dining options.
Holidays to Phuket are slightly more upbeat and offer a wide range of activities and sightseeing opportunities. Most All Inclusive hotels in Phuket are located on the coastline and provide a plethora of watersports and day excursions.
For those who want to explore the surrounding area, historic temples such as Wat Chalong and Wat Tham with its spooky cave are well worth a visit.
Phuket has ample beaches, from unspoilt spots to busier shorelines fringed with bars.
The long Bangtao Bay is a relatively quiet and peaceful beach, with pristine sands, a handful of seafront restaurants and luxurious resorts dotted along the shore. Families and couples often flock here to escape the more crowded places like Patong Beach.
The coastline in Khao Lak is Thailand scenery at its very best, with swathes of white sand that gently slopes into the warm sea. The postcard-worthy Pakarang Beach offers a safe, clean and quiet spot for relaxation, while the nearby Bangsak Beach has a similar laid-back vibe.
What's included in your holiday
The best thing about All Inclusive holidays is that all the essentials are already covered. This usually includes transfers to and from the airport, as well as your main meals and drinks, including alcohol.
The All Inclusive package may also offer daytime and night-time entertainment programmes and activities such as tennis, golf and non-motorised watersports. However, this can vary according to which hotel you chose, so make sure you check the holiday information when booking your holiday so you’re 100 percent certain of what’s included.
