For £799 per person, this deal from Kuoni marries up a 2-night city break in bustling Bangkok with a 10-night holiday in Cha-am, one of Thailand's most "authentic" beach resorts, according to Fodor's. The deal saves an impressive £429 and includes all of the following:
Flights are with Etihad -- voted the World's Leading Airline at the World Travel Awards from 2009-2012 -- on 10-12, 15-19, 22-26, 29-30 September and 5, 11-12, 17-18 November.
Fly from Manchester on 10-12, 16-19, 22-26, 29-30 September; 2-3, 8-9, 16, 29 October and 4-6, 15 November for £849 per person.
The holiday kicks off with a 2-night stay in Thailand's lively capital. The Majestic Grande hotel is in Sukhumvit, with the Skytrain and lots of markets, bars and restaurants easily reachable on foot. Facilities include an outdoor swimming pool with a sun terrace, a pool bar serving cocktails, a massage room and a fitness centre.
Guests will then get a private transfer to the Regent Cha Am Beach Resort. The resort is surrounded by 40 acres of tropical gardens and sits on a 4-mile stretch of sandy beach. There are three on-site restaurants serving a mix of local and international dishes, a coffee shop and two bars, as well as two swimming pools, a kids' pool, four tennis courts and a spa.
Local attractions include the Phra Ram Ratchaniwet Palace and the Hua Hin night market, just 20 minutes from the hotel.
Cha-am, one of Thailand's lesser-known beach spots, is a place of "sleepy charm", says Fodor's, and ideal for those "searching for calm away from the frenetic advancements of some of Thailand's other beach-resort towns".
Add extra nights in Bangkok from £28 more per person. Upgrade to a 14-night stay at the Regent Cha Am Beach Resort for £52 more per person.
