    @dressedinlovexo:  Start your search over and pick a place you will both enjoy. After the wedding, you are going to want to relax. The honeymoon isn’t something to stress over.

    Find somewhere with a pool with a swim up bar. It’s awesome.

     

    but really, rainy season in Thailand isn’t a big deal. I have been there in July and it is warm rain so even if you are in it it’s fine.

    I was in thailand for 4 weeks last July and it rained A LOT ! There are things to do but after a week of solid nonstop rain it gets kind of annoying! Depends if you mind the rain, I loved thailand but next time I go it will definitely not be in their wet season !

    @dressedinlovexo:  I’ve heard The BodyHoliday Resort on St. Lucia is amazing. It’s not a big chain like La Toc, either.

    @dressedinlovexo:  My FI and I really considered Amergris Caye in Belize as well. No chain resorts or restaurants so it seems like a more authentic experience. Some really nice luxury resorts, though.

    @dressedinlovexo:  We would have picked Victoria House. Las Terrezas looked amazing too, but a little farther from town. There are no all-inclusives on the island though. However, from our research food/drink seem to be pretty reasonable.

    @dressedinlovexo:  yes I was lucky to go for 4 weeks, I think that made the rain not so bad aswell knowing I’d had some sun and hoped it would clear up the next week etc, I met people who were only there for a short time though so they only saw rain! my favourite thing to when it was raining was make the most of the Thai massages – full body & feet – so amazing and so cheap! It became my daily routine haha. There are many amazing restaurants so we had a lot of nice lunches / dinners, daytime drinks etc. Go to a Thai cooking class, so fun and indoors ! – they usually take a few hours. Try thai boxing – also really fun! Explore the temples ! Go shopping – there’s a big shopping mall in Phuket. Go scuba diving, it doesn’t matter what the weathers like when you’re underwater ! 

    I was in Phuket with bad weather and was advised the east side of thailand was drier so I travelled to koh Samui, koh phangyan and koh toa where the weather was much better ! Koh toa in particular was absolutely amazing!

    hope that helps 🙂 !

    @dressedinlovexo:  It sounds  good. I only had a quick look at the website. I am probably a little biased though, as I like Asia for holidays.

     

    Looking at the weather averages St Lucia on average has slightly less rainfall 55% chance vs. 62%, with heavier rain and a little more overcast in Phuket (according to weatherspark.com). I think to avoid the rainy season you need to go elsewhere. Either a little further south (eg. Bali, Fiji) or north -even Jamaica has less rain (44 %). But looking at the stats weather wise St Lucia does look like a slightly better option. 

     

    You can tell I am in the Southern Hemisphere as my brain immediately goes ‘South Pacific’ and Southern Asia. Bali is only 6 hours from us, and Phuket is about 9. We are heading off to Bali in just over a week… Biased!!!

     

    P.S. I agree with the poster above me – Koh Samui is drier. Or look at one of the other little islands.
