Departs 27 February and includes room-only accommodation at the recently refurbished Aisawan Resort and Spa, Pattaya (on the Gulf of Thailand). "This is possibly one of the coolest places to stay in town and one of the few right on the beach. The beach club is ideal for those looking for relaxation during the day – and at night low lights and contemporary furniture transform this four-star resort into an idyllic setting for cocktails and romantic dinners," says Andrea Loddo of Thomson Tailormade (0871 664 0273; thomsontailormade.com).

"Cha Am is a quiet coastal resort, ideal if you're looking for complete relaxation on your holiday.

The beach is arguably the most beautiful in the Phetchaburi Province. The Regent Chalet offers traditional Thai hospitality in the privacy of secluded detached bungalows," says Travelmood's Rad Sofronijevic (0800 8407 802; travelmood.com).
