choosing most romantic beach resorts – who and why the Gulf of Thailand
With almost 1,300 beachfront accommodations in Thailand qualified by this Club, choosing the ten most romantic is difficult, and perhaps unfair to the many excellent candidates that miss out. Therefore we have separated the resorts into their two natural geographic divisions, those on the Gulf of Thailand and Andaman sides of the country, and chosen a Top 10 selection from each.
For a little background on the writer, and his qualifications to make such choices, see the prologue to the Top 10 most romantic resorts on Thailand's Andaman coast. As the photos in this website show, the writer/photographer has visited and photographed virtually all of those1,300 resorts, and has over 30 years experience in Thailand, most of it in business related to photography, publishing, tourism and beach resorts.
Experienced or not, the writer found the choosing difficult, for there are just so many beautiful, interesting and potentially romantic resorts in even half of he country. The building of beach resorts in Thailand has now been raised to a high art, and we can find amazing beachfront creations in the most unlikely places. We recognize that many excellent candidates did not make it to this list, not because of any failings of the resort, but simply because 10 is so limited.
