4 weekend ideas near Bangkok to do in March 2022

For some travel inspiration, here are four weekend ideas near Bangkok you can do in March 2022.

As much as we love Bangkok with all its warm and buzzing hustle and bustle, it’s always refreshing to get out of the capital, even if it’s just for the weekend. As a travel guide, each month we list four weekend ideas, one for each weekend of the month.

For March 2022, we are sticking to locations in Thailand due to travel restrictions, and moving away from the North due to smoky mists season. From a tropical getaway to exploring a brand new property, here are four weekend getaway ideas near Bangkok you can do in March 2022. Happy holidays and happy weekends.

At 1h30: Meliá Phuket Mai Khao, Phuket, Thailand

In case you haven’t heard, Phuket welcomed another stunning property to its directory of luxury hotels in December 2021. Take a trip to the quieter part of the island and book a stay at the hideaway tropical that is the Meliá Phuket Mai Khao. The recently opened sequestered beachfront retreat is a tropical paradise nestled in a secluded and unspoiled part of the island. Contemporary villas, ocean views, lush greenery – the resort has it all. A weekend here will undoubtedly provide an escape from the bustle of the city. Say goodbye to chaos, say hello to calm.

The Kimpton Kitalay Samui is another hotel that opened for the first time in Thailand. We love Kimpton properties, and this one is no exception. The resort channels the island’s tropical charm with 138 rooms, suites, and villas. Nestled in a village-like island enclave, you won’t run out of culinary options with their five restaurants and bars. To unwind, they offer a spa inspired by Thai wellness, palm-shaded pools and, of course, the sea. Whether you want to spend your weekend in a room, a suite or a villa, you have the choice.

In the city: U Sathorn BangkokBangkok, Thailand

Maybe your loyalty is to the capital, or maybe circumstances don’t allow you to travel out of town. Either way, here’s a weekend idea that doesn’t require a lot of travel. Bangkok is the queen of stays, so let’s take advantage of it. If you’d rather stay in the city itself this month, U Sathorn Bangkok’s current staycation deal is a godsend. If you book a table and dine at the Michelin-starred J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain with a minimum spend of THB 6,999, this urban and contemporary hotel will give you a free stay. This offer is only available until March 31, 2022, so there’s no better time than now.
