Thailand, with its countless claims to fame unabashedly seduces generation after generation of travellers. With no dearth of cheap hotels in Thailand, the destination is also pretty easy on the pocket. It is an exercise in futility to list out the different charms of this destination as these are endless. Just one of the strongest crowd pullers happen to be the country’s mesmerising sea lapped beaches. While booking hotels in Thailand, it is advisable to go for hotels that are in close proximity to beaches. Take your pick from amongst some of the best beaches in Thailand.
Patong Beach, Phuket
The huge Patong Beach in phuket with its large coastline is perhaps the number one Thailand beach in terms of popularity.
Bath warm waters and milky white soft sands ensure plenty of fun times. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping as well. Similarly there is no dearth of hotels. At night, a high voltage nightlife sets the perfect tone for some upbeat parties. Quite a few cheap and popular Thailand hotels are to be found in close vicinity of the Patong beach. Patong Beach Hotel, Karona Resort & Spa, Horizon Patong Beach Resort & Spa are some of the hotels here with great reviews from their guests.
Kata Beach, Phuket
This is yet another gorgeous beach from Phuket and a far cry from the sometimes maddeningly crowded Patong Beach. Although, this serene palm fringed South Phuket beach also has balmy waters and soul stirring scenery, one does not get to see skyscrapers, or glitzy malls and hotels.
In fact, this is the beauty of this beach. The Kata beach is well known for its immense waves during the low season and emerges as a paradise for surfers. Check out Kata Beach Resort & Spa, The access Resort and Villas or Centara Karon Resort Phuket amongst others for your stay around here.
Railey Beach, Krabi
The Railey Beach is another of those beaches that can only be accessed by boat. This delightfully isolated beach is perfect for playing Robinson Crusoe. Although, there are opportunities for snorkelling, rock climbing, and swimming, many visitors simply prefer to drink in the gorgeous scenery and curl up with a book. The beach is at its quietest best during off season times. Choose from popular hotels such as Railay Bay Resort & Spa, Aonang Princeville Resort, Phra Nang Inn and many more for your stay close to the beach.
Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Le
This small pristine beach has captivating scenery. Guarded by tall craggy limestone cliffs, the beach lies cosily snuggled in a small bay. To visit, one has to take a boat trip during daytime and return before night. The beach is part of a small island next to Ko Phi Phi. Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort & Spa, Holiday Inn Resort Phi Phi Island , Phi Phi Banyan Villa , Phi Phi Island Cabana Hotel are some of the many nearby hotels one would like to check out.
