Top staycation spots of Thailand and Bali revealed…
When travelling to your dream destination isn’t on the cards – yet you are in desperate need of a change of scenery – why not follow one of the new travel trends and book a staycation? Residents of Thailand and Bali can enjoy a little escape from reality with our hotels catering to anyone’s taste…
Riva Surya – Bangkok, Thailand
When it comes to Bangkok, it’s common knowledge that residents of Sukhumvit tend to stick to their area, not venturing to the other parts of the city very often. And while it’s great to have everything you might need within easy reach, it can get a bit boring. Good news – that makes a change of scenery as easy as breathing – just take the MRT to Sanam Chai station and find yourself in the historical centre of the capital!
Yes, we know you’ve been there before – but most likely, it’s been a while. Refresh your memory of the area while staying in its very heart – in the historical female-owned boutique hotel, Riva Surya. Bring up the forgotten feeling of being fresh and new to Thailand, experiencing everything again for the first time. If lockdown is good for anything – it’s for falling in love with your city all over again!
Akyra Thonglor – Bangkok
The opposite is true for those Bangkokians who decided to stay away from the trendy locations and settle down in other areas of the city, perhaps around Sathorn, Rama 9 or the Airport Link. Guess what? The formula for a perfect staycation remains the same – escaping your usual neighbourhood is a must.
Pack your bags and book a room at Akyra Thonglor, and find yourself in the middle of the hustle and bustle, surrounded by shopping areas and secret spots. Take advantage of the hotel’s Thonglor Tuk Tuk tour to feel like a tourist, followed by an in-room massage to end the exciting day. And if you’re lucky to have an opportunity to work from home, extend your stay to take advantage of the hotel’s Workation Package.
Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai, Thailand
What better way to get away from your usual haunts in Chiang Mai, then spend a weekend in a hotel just out of the city? Explore a different side of the northern capital and reconnect with nature in Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai.
The accommodation is set on a scenic valley slope with views over rice and tea terraces from the large private balconies. Each private cottage is a self contained spa with a large sunken bath, steam shower and twin treatment beds ideal for couples. All products used for treatments have been developed by the resort’s own therapist.
Rocky’s Boutique Resort – A Veranda Collection – Koh Samui
Residents of Koh Samui can plan a romantic escape with their loved ones with a dinner on Lamai Beach and a stay at Rocky’s Boutique Resort. The resort offers an intimate and private setting with luxurious accommodation situated on the beach and unparalleled views of the Gulf of Thailand.
Forget about the usual routine and take a weekend to enjoy the resort’s two swimming pools, and three secluded beaches enclosed by large outcrops of granite rocks which form idyllic sheltered coves. Spend your days snorkelling before moving on to the fine dining restaurant perched atop a large granite rock, overlooking the ocean.
Those lucky to be based in Bali might want to explore the nearby islands for a little getaway. But what if we tell you there’s no need to look that far? Escape the trendy areas of Canggu, Kuta and Ubud in favour of Jimbaran for a much needed staycation.
Located in the heart of nature on a hidden corner of the island, Raffles Bali is the ultimate oasis of emotional well-being. The hotel has multiple offers for 3-day retreats – perfect for escaping the mundane for a little while. Known for its holistic approach that extends beyond the walls of the spa itself, Raffles Bali guarantees a relaxing and regenerative experience. Do make use of the spa though – the treatments borrow elements from time-honoured local traditions to help you reconnect with your inner sense of wellbeing.
When one wants to escape their usual surroundings on Bali, there’s no need to go far. Check in to Viceroy Bali and enjoy the infinity pool, Lembah Spa and the Cascades restaurant, all with the view of the jungle.
There’s even a staycation package to consider if you’re in need of a little workation and a change of scenery. Use this perfect opportunity to mix business with pleasure while enjoying the outstanding service from the hotel’s dedicated team.
