Today’s holiday-goers are looking for a way to explore new destinations while at the same time delving into their life interests. Here are four Thailand holidays where you can do just that. This series of special experiences showcases romantic getaways, honeymoon packages and a Thailand mountain resort, alongwith a restaurant in Phuket that’s pioneering plant based dining. Read on to find out what the team at Aleenta resorts have crafted for travellers this year!
Thailand mountain resort
Set in the foothills of the lush mountains that play host to Northern Thailand’s vibrant culture and ancient temples is the Aleenta Retreat Chiang Mai. The retreat is perfectly positioned to embrace tranquillity and the power of wellness restoration.
Built to protect the local ecosystem, the low-rise property merges modern and traditional Thai design. You can stay in one of the 44 rooms and suites or the pool residences. However, the star of the accommodation offerings is a four-bedroom villa made from restored antique golden teak carefully reassembled into a beautiful Thai abode.
At the Ayurah Wellness Centres, you can embark on a restorative journey through six holistic tailor-made programmes. These wellness-focused Thailand holidays incorporate a variety of focuses, from natural Thai medicine and healing to self-love and yoga. There’s also complimentary yoga each day, Qi Gong, meditation and mindfulness classes.
The Aleenta’s holistic wellness approach also incorporates bespoke nutritionist-led plans with full plant-based options and wellness cooking classes. The Garden restaurant showcases a nutritious take on Northern Thai Lanna cuisine with a Western twist. To further help guests achieve balance and wellness at the Thailand mountain resort, there’s also a resident “master healer”, doctor, nurse and nutritionist on hand.
Head over heels for this honeymoon package
With a view of the gulf of Thailand and only a few steps from the beach, Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi is a honeymooners’ paradise found in Pak Nam Pran bay. While it goes without saying that the location alone will conjure plenty of those perfect romantic vibes, you can ramp things up with the Hua Hin Romantic Getaway Package.
The deal includes a two-night stay, daily breakfast (including a one-time breakfast served in-room or as a “floating” breakfast in the pool), a one-hour spa treatment each day and a night with pre-dinner drinks and a romantic dinner on the beach.
Lovers’ paradise in Phuket
Just 25 minutes north of Phuket airport, Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga is a boutique resort providing breezy vacation vibes and plenty of opportunities to fall in love all over again. For example, the resort’s honeymoon package starts with couples finding a rose bouquet and a bottle of sparkling wine when they enter their beachfront villa or suite.
Also included in these romantic Thailand holidays are gourmet breakfasts every morning and a one-hour spa treatment each day. During your three nights in loved-up luxury, you can also choose an evening for romantic pre-dinner drinks and a dinner for two on the beach.
Thailand holidays offering a fresh taste for foodies
With a plant-based menu, Thai ingredients and an Italian chef, there’s certainly going to be something new for every foodie at Seasons, Thailand’s first ever completely plant-based fine-dining eatery. With only eight tables and direct views of the Andaman Sea, this restaurant in Phuket at Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga is intimate and draws on the beauty of nature both on and off the menu.
The primary focus for Chef Luca Mancini is to support local agricultural businesses, minimise the restaurant’s ecological footprint and create an innovative and health-conscious menu. This is why the restaurant creates new menus in alignment with Thailand’s three seasons – wet, hot and cool.
Staple ingredients at Seasons restaurant in Phuket include rice from a farm run by the same family for four generations. Their strain of rice is high in nutrients like Omega 9, which can help to lower cholesterol and improve circulation. The restaurant also sources tofu made using a secret recipe passed down for generations. Also, the homegrown Thai “grape seaweed” is from a nearby plantation. Signature dishes using these ingredients include a creamy risotto with flavours of the sea and a rich chocolate mousse made from white tofu.
