There are plenty of iconic golf clubs, fairways and greens in the US and the UK, but we’ve found a golfing mecca that’s a shorter flight away! Here we take a look at a trio of Aleenta golf resorts where you can book luxury golf packages in Thailand including getaways surrounded by golf courses in Phuket, Chiang Mai and Hua Hin-Pranburi. They’re also ideal for groups with non-golfers!
#1 Golf courses in Phuket
Located on the sunset side of the Andaman Sea, the Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga five-star boutique resort is a private and secluded getaway. It’s also home to the award winning Ayurah Spa & Wellness Centre, which has master therapists and complimentary wellness classes.
There are a few gorgeous three- and four-bedroom beachfront villas and spacious rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and private pools or swim-up access. The famed Phang Nga Bay is also a short distance away
After a day teeing off on the beautiful courses in Phuket, head to the new Seasons Restaurant. Here you can fuel up on nourishing menus that are pioneering plant-based cuisines in Thailand.

#2 A golf resort retreat in Chiang Mai
In the ancient mountains in Northern Thailand, you’ll find culture and temples aplenty. And also plenty of golf courses! Stay at the Aleenta Chiang Mai and you can tap into this exotic combination of holiday activities.
The luxury resort embraces the traditional designs of the region and beautifully includes them in its modern pool residences, villas, rooms and suites. Wellness is at this resort’s core, too, so if you’re weary after hitting a few too many balls into the rough, or you’ve been off for a full day of exploring, try one of the divine-sounding holistic spa treatments. There’s also a “master healer” on the property, as well as nutritionists and menus with creative plant-based options.

#3 Golf packages in Thailand’s Hua Hin-Pranburi
If you’re looking to combine a variety of sports in a paradise-like setting, Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi will be right up your alley. The resort is within steps of Pak Nam Pran Bay, and an excellent base for kitesurfing, golf and cycling adventures.
Despite all those activities, inside the resort things are quiet, quaint and luxurious. Staying in one of the suites or beachfront villas, you can wake up to stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand, watch local monks walk past in the morning, take a dip in your private pool during the day and gaze at the stars at night.
Aside from playing a round at one of four nearby golf courses, there are plenty of other activities on offer, from exploring an organic farm to cycling along the coast. The Ayurah Spa also offers traditional and holistic treatments, there’s a famous bakery a stone’s throw away and, of course, a postcard-perfect beach to enjoy.
