Happy Valentines: Our guide to a fabulous V-Day in Phuket

Saint Valentine (Latin: Valentinius) is a widely recognised third-century Roman saint commemorated on February 14 and associated since the High Middle Ages with a tradition of courtly love. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. So whether you’re into this holiday or not, we’ve put together a little guide for some Valentine’s Day ideas; for the single gals and guys, as well as some romantic things to do for couples.

Reserve... A romantic dinner for you and your lover. Get touchy-feely (with your food) at this sensual romantic setting. Kata Rocks is serving up “food of love” and romantic recipes for two this Valentine’s Day. You and your lover can enjoy an amazing six-course dinner cooked by Chef Steven Baker (B10,000++ a couple) with a choice of a bottle of white, red or sparkling wine.

Roses will be everywhere, presented to females guests arriving for dinner at luxury resort. And no Valentine’s Day would be complete without a small romantic gift courtesy of Kata Rocks, an ideal complement to a beautiful evening. (For reservations, visit katarocks.com/)

Be kind... Do something noble this Valentine’s Day and join the “Give out Valentine’s Project”. Here, you’ll be able to get in touch with your crafty side and make heart pencils. The best part? You’ll be helping to raise funds for homeless dogs all the while making yourself happy as well!. 

Watch... The movie that everyone is talking about, Fifty Shades of Grey. This adult-oriented, romantic novel-turned-film was released in cinemas last Friday (February 12). Get in touch with your wild side and check it out!

Reserve... A romantic couples pampering experience at any one of the fabulous spas around the island; including Anantara Spa, The Spa at Mövenpick Resort & Spa, Zen Spa Club, JW Marriott and tons more. No one’s mastered the art of massage quite like the Thais have, so make sure this is part of your Valentine’s Day weekend.


Socialise... At Higher in Patong and enjoy an elegant, delicious meal in a relaxing atmosphere. When you’re nice and full, walk downstairs for some cocktails at Seduction. (For reservations call 093 581 8162)

Party... At Love Nightlife, which has beccome a bit of an annual tradition for single Aussie’s in Sydney and they’ve just brought it over to Patong. For any singletons who’d rather spend the most romantic night of the year wielding a paddle than crying into a family-sized bag of chocolate, then head over to Love’s Valentine’s Day Pool Party featuring DJ Anny – Ukraine’s hottest female export! Join the biggest party at Phuket’s only open-air nightclub featuring a rooftop pool. (For reservations, please visit lovenightlife.net/thailand/pool/).

If you’re looking for something a little less commercial, but still want a vibrant atmosphere, be sure to check out Timber Hut or Sanaeha in Phuket Town. Or better yet, if you take a stroll through some of the back roads you’re bound to be faced with a few romantic local delights!

The point is, whatever you’re looking for this Valentine’s Day, Phuket has got it. Even for those of you who just want to head somewhere and forget it’s even February 14th.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
