Although you can argue that practically the entire country of Thailand is its own top honeymoon destination, there are still a few places worth noting. One of them is the resort island of Koh Samui. From the stunning beaches to the tropical escapes, it's the archetypal paradise that is perfect for lovers. But even within Koh Samui, there are specific spots that couples really ought to visit and see for themselves. They reek of romance, isolated enough for intimacy, and, of course, extremely beautiful too. If you're going here with your new spouse on your honeymoon, you'll want to visit these places yourself!

Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar
As far as great foodie hotspots go, isn't one in a treehouse so romantic? Sure, on an island like Koh Samui, you'll find a ton of seaside restaurants and even a few mountaintop establishments, but for others, they've become pretty expected. Not that this makes them any less romantic or anything, but the Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar in Chewang's Anantara Lawana Resort is unique, beautiful, and of course, romantic. As you dine on rich meaty dishes and local seafood delicacies, you get to enjoy the island's natural wonders at their finest. It's nothing but trees and luscious greeneries all around while you enjoy the company of your new partner in life.
Speaking of Mother Nature, you'll find that many places on this list will have you coming closer to the environment than you probably realize. One of them is Namuang Waterfalls, the most famous of its kind in Koh Samui. Yes, you'll have to spend an entire day
trekking through a rainforest just to get here but that's part of the fun! Splashing around under the cool waterfalls is the best reward for all your hard work to reach this famous spot on the island. And since there aren't a lot of people around, isn't this the best place for an au naturel

Ang Thong National Marine Park
Now, if you newlyweds fancy yourselves as an 'adventurous couple' then look no further than Mu Koh Angthong National Marine Park, more commonly referred to as Ang Thong National Marine Park. One of the biggest national marine parks in all of Thailand, this place offers you countless adventures to last you a lifetime. While you're still on your honeymoon phase (literally!), you'll want to test your limits and discover more about each other as you bask in the island's natural glory. From kayaking to scuba diving, there are tons you can do with just the two of you here in Ang Thong National Marine Park!

Paris Follies Cabaret
Nothing like a cabaret to get you into the mood for love! But don't expect that the ones here in Koh Samui are any similar to those glamorous clubs in Paris
! Even going to Koh Samui's infamous Paris Follies Cabaret is a whole other experience! For one thing, the performers here are transgender women and they perform all sorts of tricks and moves that, ordinarily, cis-gender women can't. Their shows go beyond the normal bounds of gender and sexuality and they'll take you into an erotic oasis that might just help you get into the mood for love later on!

Hin Ta and Hin Yai Rocks
On the subject of erotica, honeymooners in Koh Samui should simply visit the notorious Hin Ta and Hin Yai Rocks in Lamai beach. These infamous rock formations are a definite must-see for two reasons. The first is that they're shaped like male and female genitalia (perhaps that will inspire some intimacy in your newlywed life too!) and are always a hoot to see. The second reason is the tragic folklore around it. Legend has it that an elderly couple wanted their son to marry the daughter of a man who lived on the other side of the sea. But when they sailed off to visit the said man and daughter, their boat was capsized during a storm, upon death, they became the rock formations you see here now.

Koh Samui Beaches
Even without erotica rock formations, however, Lamai Beach is still a great place to visit for couples. In fact, the many beaches in Koh Samui are also perfect enough for any newlywed couple to spend some quality time in. Most especially the more remote ones like Silavadee Beach, Coral Cove, Samrong Beach, and Thong Son Bay, among many others. If you're lucky enough to get an entire shoreline that's practically all to yourselves, even better! You will feel as if you're the only two people in the world and frankly, there's nothing more romantic than that!

There's truly nothing like pampering yourselves up after finishing a wedding you planned for months or even years. Sure, you went off to Koh Samui for your honeymoon, probably because of the beaches, the food, and the like, but having a spa day here is also just as rewarding. Most especially if you go to the famous Vana Spa in Vana Belle
, a Luxury Collection Resort under the Marriott Group
. Seeing as this place is part of the world-renowned international hotel chain, you can expect quality, first-class service here. From a couples' massage to a dip in a jacuzzi together, a romantic and relaxing rendezvous awaits you lovebirds here at Vana Spa!
