Two Kingdoms... Bhutan & Thailand with COMO Resorts

12 days from £5,330 per person

This itinerary features in our Top 10 Romantic Holidays.

Explore the two very different kingdoms of Bhutan and Thailand with COMO Hotels & Resorts on a luxurious journey from ancient cities to the Himalayan mountain range and stunning Thai beaches.

On this bespoke tour you will discover the spectacular apple orchards and vast farmlands of Bhutan, along with its deep-rooted history of fortress monasteries (dzongs), temples and shrines. After days of exploring, spend the evenings relaxing and taking in the views of the pilgrimage surroundings. Enjoy spa treatments and indulge in traditional Bhutanese hot stone baths at your hotel.

From the mountains travel to Thailand’s largest and most luxurious island, Phuket, where you will spend four nights at Point Yamu the sexy island retreat on Phuket’s east coast. Here you can while away the days relaxing at the resort and seeing the wonders of Phang Nga Bay, famously known as James Bond island.

The final leg of your journey will take you back to Bangkok, which we think is a city that encapsulates 21st century Asia. Here you will spend two nights at the Metropolitan to uncover the iconic sights of the Royal Palace, soak up the atmosphere of the local markets and taste the range of cuisine on offer in this lively city.

This tailor-made itinerary to Bhutan and Thailand includes four and a half days of privately guided excursion in Bhutan with picnic lunches, all museum and visitor centre entry fees and road permits, three spa treatments per person, two full day excursions at Point Yamu and a half day city tour in Bangkok, and two complimentary dinners on the first at last nights of your stay.

This luxury holiday is a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your ideal tour of Bhutan and Thailand. If you would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoonsas well as our Ultimate LuxuryMulti-Country, Trekking, Beach, Scuba Diving and Spa & Wellness itineraries.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
