Less than 90 minutes by boat from Krabi, Koh Lanta (technically called Koh Lanta Yai) is the largest of 52 little islands in an archipelago blessed with nature reserves, gorgeous beaches, hiking trails and a scenic lighthouse.

For couples wanting to get away from the crowds, Koh Samui has a more laid-back atmosphere and is less developed than Phuket. It’s no longer a sleepy backwater, though, as Koh Samui has morphed into a stylish island destination with luxury resorts, spa treatments, cocktails and beaches.

A teardrop-shaped Andaman Sea island, Phuket is known as the "Pearl of the South". As Thailand’s most established beach destination, Phuket’s advantage is its huge selection of resorts, bars, restaurants, attractions and activities.
