When considering an overseas honeymoon (or even a destination wedding), the venue selection can be rather harrowing with an entire world to consider. As part of our #honeymoonhumpday series, we're going to be bringing you a variety of venue profiles, honeymoon styles and tips every Wednesday to help you narrow your options down to somewhere truly amazing.
The JW Marriott, a tropical Thai paradise situated on Khao Lak’s pristine Khuk Khak beach and just an hour drive from the heart of Phuket. This resort has much to offer with impeccable suites and luxury amenities and facilities, which help to set the scene for ultimate relaxation during your honeymoon getaway.
All suites and rooms within JW Marriott are elegantly designed with luxurious ambience. You can expect calming neutral colour tones, large marble bathrooms and private balconies with wooden loungers, all with touches of contemporary and traditional Thai design. If you wish, upgrade to a deluxe swim up room and enjoy direct access to the expansive pool from your own suite. Or, opt for a premium room and take advantage of various extras such as complimentary Thai massages and private breakfast seating areas.
JW Marriott is home to Southeast Asia’s largest swimming pool. With a lagoon inspired design, there is over three kilometres of calm waterways that wind and meander around the lobby and suites. Other facilities that JW Marriott has to offer include the Quan Spa, set on the relaxing beachfront with indoor and outdoor suites available for a variety of treatments, ranging from manicures to Thai massages and steam rooms. For the more adventurous, there is a wide range of sports and entertainment available to guests. Try wind surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding in the picturesque waters, or stick to land with volleyball, yoga or tennis.
The expansive resort has a wide range of dining options available for its guests. In the evening, visit Ta-Krai restaurant for truly authentic Thai cuisine with sunken and poolside seating area. Ta-Krai also has cooking classes available if you wish to learn the art of Thai cuisine yourself. Olive Restaurant provides delicious Mediterranean cuisine with astonishing sea views, live music and dancing until the early hours. JW Marriott’s main restaurant is the Waterfront Restaurant, where you can enjoy any meal overlooking the stunning Andaman Ocean with an international selection of cuisines and live cooking demonstrations. For the ultimate romantic dining experience, try out a private candlelight dinner on the beach with the sounds of the ocean in the background.
If you wish to venture from your blissful hideaway, take a trek through the stunning surrounding forest and visit Ton Chong Fa five-level waterfall. Or, spend time at Elephant Hills, where you can feed, bathe and walk the beautiful giants of the animal world. If you are after some contrast from your relaxing stay at JW Marriott, take a day trip into Phuket and enjoy the Thai culture, shopping and restaurants.
Whether you are seeking lavish relaxation or exciting activities for your honeymoon, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort and Spa has so much to offer you for your honeymoon.
