Honeymoon Destination

This is merely a plan. Since we're saving a lot (mostly it's more to spending a lot) for the wedding so the thought of going for honeymoon hasn't even made it to our priority list yet. Well, at least not right after the wedding. Few weeks after that or best, until we are financially stable to splurge would be much better.

However...

That doesn't stop me from finding the best deals, especially for beach escapade. The one place that is within our range of budget is Phuket and yes, Krabi, which seems to be the current favorite place for honeymoon among bloggers (or so I think..).

In this post, let's talk about Krabi alone, shall we?

I've made tedious research on these two island and found Krabi to be the most affordable among them. Well, for our budget at least. After hours and days spent on googling online and visited each respective websites, I have shortlisted these hotels as the best accomodation that meets the requirements and most importantly, BUDGET!

Aree Tara is modern and chic. The pool is shaded most of the time but it's still pretty. They have pool access room. Bonus!



Buri Tara have pool access room too. I think Sha stayed here on her honeymoon. They have two separate sinks in the bathroom. I loike!



Aonang Paradise Resort is beautiful! They are surrounded in greenery, which is very relaxing and laidback. Heaven!

These resorts are located in the Ao Nang area. I've always looked up for real reviews from travellers in Trip Advisor for the the real insights and honest opinions before I book on accomodation. Normally, pictures shown on the resorts' websites are perfect but Trip Advisor shows the real flaws and actual things. Those pictures above were taken from visitors on Trip Advisor who have visited the resorts. So I could assume that these places are actually almost the same as they depicted in their websites. Pretty, aren't they?

These resorts are affordable, considering the location, ammenities and room. Tapi untuk penjimatan terhebat, do book early. Direct booking with the hotel is cheap but I found cheaper option if you book with booking.com. They don't charge your credit card. It's only needed to guarantee your booking. All payment must be made directly to the hotel when you arrive. It means, they don't take your credit card details and simply charge you the total rate of your booking. Yeay!

I have set my eyes on one of these resorts. Can you guess which one would it be? Hehe.

On the next post, I shall write about Phuket and its heaven for honeymoon escapade.

I just came back from Krabi -
Don't quite like it there. But maybe for Honeymoon okay kot.

As for Phuket. If you go, I'd recommend staying around Karon/Kata Beach area. Patong and Kamala are way too OTT.

:)
