Kilda and Lee – Thailand (Feb 2014)

Once again it was great to have your help, advice and guidance on where to go on our travels for our Honeymoon in Thailand. We loved La Flora Hotel and felt very lucky to have the pool access room, it was such a great luxury and made our Honeymoon special. The room on arrival had a few items to celebrate our Honeymoon too, which was very nice. We enjoyed the hotel with all the activities that it had on offer, including the beach yoga, the Thai boxing and using the kayaks on the sea. Despite being active we still relaxed and I had a few treatments at the on site spa and even encouraged Lee to have his first massage which he loved, this was pure luxury. We had some great curries too, which was right up our street!

We did some fantastic day trips, we went diving to the Similan Islands which were incredible and we saw a sea snake, turtle and a massive shoal of fish all at the same time! Very memorable. We had another day trip to other local islands and did some snorkelling, the beaches and sea were almost unbelievable!

Our few days in Khao Sok National Park were brilliant, it broke up the Honeymoon perfectly. Elephant Hills gave brilliant service throughout the whole trip. The jungle camp was so beautiful and it was nice to spend some time looking around this area. The trip to see the Elephants was great fun and you really got up close to them while washing and feeding them. We then had a relaxing kayak down the river with some spectacular scenery and the next day we went to the dam/lake which was stunning. We loved camping on the lake and enjoyed using the kayaks and even enjoyed the hike, which was very hot and hard work, despite there not being too much climbing. We saw bear claws in a tree as well as evidence of the wild elephants!

On one of the last days we enjoyed doing a Thai cooking class at the hotel which gave us some creative skills and was a lot of fun but we couldn’t eat all the food we had made, there was too much, which is never a bad thing! The hotel always went to a lot of effort and Valentines night was no exception with an amazing selection of food, entertainment and fun.  We were sad to leave but had so many great memories, thank you again for all your help to make this happen.
