This Is Not a Drill: You Can Book a Luxury Trip to Thailand For Less Than $500!

This fully refundable deal will save you $1,300!

Southeast Asia has opened up to foreign travelers and Thailand has made it easier to enter. So, pristine beaches, mouth-watering food, and luxury spas are just a flight (or two) away. The Asian nation is well-known for its warm hospitality—it’s called the “Land of Smiles”—and natural beauty. And it’s a treat for travelers: think boat rides on crystal clear waters, island hopping, piping hot and delicious street food, one-of-a-kind boutiques, ancient temples, colorful culture, and world-famous Thai massages. 

This tropical destination is a tourist hotspot. If you’ve been contemplating a trip to this side of the globe, there is an opportunity we insist you consider. Grand Mercure Khao Lak Bangsak is offering 73% off its usual price, so you can have a fantastic one-week trip with your partner for a fraction of what guests normally pay.

Travelzoo has listed a seven-night stay for two guests in a Superior Room with a private balcony for $479 and a Deluxe Pool Access Room with a private terrace and access to the pool at $688. Perks include daily breakfast, a Thai dinner, and a 60-minute Thai massage per person. You can also extend your trip from $69 and buy this offer now and travel till October 31, 2023 (surcharge applies on some dates).

Opened in September 2021, Grand Mercure Khao Lak Bangsak is a beachfront resort on Bangsak beach in southern Thailand. It features 195 rooms and suites, two restaurants, a pool bar, three pools, and a spa. Step outside the resort and visit the national parks, sunbathe at more beaches, and play golf at Rajjaprabha Dam Golf Course.

Khao Lak hugs the Andaman Sea coast and it has become a popular tourist destination, especially among those who are looking to avoid the crowds of Phuket. It is 58 miles from Phuket and you can take a flight, a boat, or a taxi to get here. The island was hit hard by the tsunami in 2004. The seaside resort town was devastated, but it has been rebuilt and once again has found itself on tourists’ radar.
