Dive by Day, Stay in Luxury at Night in Thailand

Thailand is one of the world's foremost dive sites, second only to natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef. The weather is warm, the sea is coolly inviting, and the fish life is rich and varied, due to a largely unpolluted underwater environment. There are some famous dive sites in Thailand, very popular with tourists, and some not so famous ones that are equally worthwhile (as well as much quieter!).

By the same token, there are some famous accommodation in Thailand available, and some 'off the beaten track' luxury villas in Thailand that are even better. If you're planning a diving holiday to Thailand, you'll bne looking at staying in either Phuket, Khao Lak, or Krabi, for Ao Nang Beach. These offer the best combination of resort atmosphere and facilities, and spectacular diving.

If you are looking for a party at night time, Phuket is the ideal diving spot and the best place to look for luxury Thai accommodation. The Andaman sea has some very individual cobinations of wildlife, and if the fish are your passion, you'll want to stay at Khao Lak. Krabi coastline is legendary for its beauty, so if quiet and majestic surrounds are what you want, you'll be diving here at Ao Nang Beach.

If you are looking at diving in the Andaman Sea, go between November and April. Whale sharks can be seen in the Andaman Sea from around February to May, and there are plenty of manta rays all year round.

However, there can be heavy rains in the Andaman Sea in October, and these reduce visibility by around 30% in the dive sites that are still open. Between August and May is when the Andaman sea is at its lowest, and you can see small animals and plenty of varied reef life. Good for diving beginners. If the Andaman sea is your dive location of choice, then Phuket will be where your luxury villa in Thailand will be. For an authentic Thai experience, trying living in a traditional Thai style home, only in the lap of luxury, at a villa like Anathura in Patong.

This vacation villa in Thailand sleeps 4 people, and its high ceilings, gorgeous teak floors and 50m outdoor swimming pool make for nights that are peaceful, with plenty of room to stretch.

Ao Nang Beach in Krabi is one of Thailand's most colourful dive spots, with at least 60 species of corals, a large population of gorgonian seafans, and shrimps and crabs galore. Schools of barracuda and groups of squid and leopard sharks make for some adrenaline pumping large additions! Krabi is a peaceful area of Thailand, and the luxury villa rentals in Thailand in the Krabi area match the mood of their environment. The enormous Pimalai pool villas in Thailand give you the opportunity to stretch out the kinks after a hard day's dive, soothing and refreshing yourself in privacy and luxury.
