Allow me to introduce you to Hannah Jeffery. Hannah is a Brochure Product Executive here at STA Travel, meaning that it’s her job to produce our STA Travel brochures and also the brochures for our sister company Bridge the World. Hannah has recently completed this year’s brand spanking new Bridge the World Thailand brochure meaning she is the perfect person to give you an insiders guide to the best, affordably luxurious hotels in Thailand, I mean, it’s been her life for the past 6 months! She knows her product inside out, she’s even been to visit some of them in person (all in the name of doing a good job of course) so Hannah it’s over to you…
Thailand is an enthralling mix of mystical mountain kingdoms, balmy jungle-clad beaches and energetic inner-city melting pots, all shrouded in ancient backpacker myths dating back to the early 90s of £1 beach huts.

As Thailand is such amazing value, there is no need to sacrifice cultural authenticity or your precious travellers’ integrity in the face of luxury, comfort and an infinity pool, pretty much as standard. Elsewhere in the world, your luxury budget may extend to a 3* white and soulless monolithic monstrosity whereas Thailand’s neon cities, emerald jungles and archetypal bounty beaches are home to an abundance of unique and characterful luxury hotels, and we’ll prove it. Here are a few of our favourites…
