What’s amazing about Thailand is you can find a piece of Europe in various cities around Bangkok.
Missing Santorini? Hua Hin’s your place.
Want a more French vibe? You’ll find it in Khao Yai, especially with all those wineries and Western food.
But what if you’re looking for an idyllic spot where you can laze around all day long? Then you’ll want to go to Suan Phueng, which reminds me strongly of Tuscany – the amount of hills and greenery here is surreal, just like the Italian countryside!!
At these romantic stays, you’ll never want to leave. Best of all, they’re ALL under USD $85 (so much cheaper than a stay in Tuscany itself, not to mention the flight ticket… Gahhh!!).
So what are you waiting for? Let’s start this romantic vacation in Suan Phueng now! 😀

Romantic day-trip itinerary to Suan Phueng, with 5 things to do, see and eat just 2 hours from Bangkok
1. Welcome to Tuscany – La Toscana Resort
What do you expect to see when you hear the word “Tuscany”? A quick google of this city will show you miles after miles of green fields with brick houses in the midst of it all. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at La Toscana Resort.
Although the trees and fields here aren’t exactly endless, the only things you’ll see here are greenery and brick houses.
I especially love the dreamy vibe of the villas, from the arched windows and wooden arched doors to the white bathtubs with legs. And with exposed brick walls and potted plants surrounding the house, it definitely doesn’t feel like you’re in Thailand anymore.
Don’t miss the chance to enjoy breakfast by the gardens – so lovely…

2. Relax and enjoy some of the pleasure of the old English charm – Swiss Valley Hip Resort
Nestled among 50 shades of green mountains, plus throw in a few palm trees, you’ll discover a little world of it’s own. It seems to take you back to a classical time and makes for a relaxing stay.
There’s a definitive old-world charm about it and rooms are decorated accordingly. You can expect to find all those charming furnishes and finishing touches here.
Villas are cottage-like, almost like a Disney fairytale – and rooms are decorated in floral paisley prints. There’s armchairs with fabrics to go, and your cups and saucers hang from above – naturally.
And I HAVE to mention the gorgeous outdoor mosaic bathtub and pool. It’s a quiet and relaxing stay and feels like you’re away from everything.
Spot the lambs, ponies and rabbits hopping and galavanting around, or have fun doing some of the activities on the grounds, including horse-riding and mini-golf.

3. Staying in the countryside can be comfortable! – Ashcarya Boutique Resort
The last thing you’ll want on a romantic holiday is to stay somewhere uncomfortable, regardless of how pretty the accommodation looks. But you won’t have to make that concession here.
At first glance, this stay might feel like a regular European countryside villa in a vineyard, especially with the stone walkways and various types of trees placed around the premise.
But try to hold your train of thoughts until you’ve entered the villa. Gone are the hints of ruralness. There’s only modernity and sleekness inside, with tons of red and black furniture and a fishing net-shaped ceiling lamp, making the room feel quite Oriental.
But if you miss the “Tuscany” vibes, just open your windows to relish the beautiful garden view from your room. Easy peasy!

4. Have a break at this countryside farmland – Royal Good View Resort & Farm
Peace and quiet is what you need when you need a respite from city life, and what can be better than having that in the company of your beloved and fluffy animals?
Their clay house villa is right by the field, giving you a clear farm view from your room. You might even see sheep and horses munching on grass or/and roaming around the field!
The rooms are really cute and cosy too, with night lights carved in the walls in the shape of stars and moons. They even have an open rooftop you can laze around with your sweetheart.
I especially love the majestic landscape view of the mountains in the background of the farm houses, green fields and animals – WOW.

5. Modern European stay in the countryside – Stamp Hills Resort
If you’re looking for a tranquil place to stay at, without omitting style and comfort, then you’ll want to be here.
Since it’s located up the mountains, it’s super quiet here, and the amount of greenery around the premise just makes the place even more serene. So you can definitely enjoy resting indoors or soak in the positive vibes from nature by walking around.
Each room feels cheerful as they’re painted in vibrant colours like pink, yellow and orange. They’re also equipped with modern amenities, including a mini fridge and kettle, ensuring your time here stays comfortable.
If you have a bit more budget, we highly recommend their 1 Bedroom Deluxe Villa room. The room is gorgeous, with curtains separating the bedroom and bathroom and floral cushions, and the bathtub on legs placed beside a window.

6. Exotic Italian countryside stay for two – Rak Na Suan Pueng Resort (รัก ณ สวนผึ้งรีสอร์ท)
Aren’t the villas here so unique? The colours are so vibrant that it catches your attention at first glance, unlike the usual pale yellow/brown colour of countryside houses.
The place is beautiful – just imagine waking up in the morning with your favourite person to such a breathtaking mountain view – that you’ll love staying here for one or few nights with your bae.
Don’t miss the swimming pool too. It’s quite big AND lets you swim amongst the greenery.
At this resort, you get a choice between staying in your own mini villa, a bedroom with a mountain view, a room by the pool or in a whimsical country home.
But if you ask me, I say go for the villa. The pastel-coloured walls make the place look adorable, while the fluffy white beds and floral curtains make you want to stay in all day long!

7. Je t’aime… I really do! – La Provence Suan Phung Hotel
Seeking a romantic weekend spot? Spoil your lover by bringing him/her to La Provence Suan Phung Hotel.
What I love most about this place is it’s designed like a small French village, with quaint villas spread around the area. In fact, walking on the road to each villa feels so sweet, and the flowers and trees along the roads feel super romantic.
The rooms are also quite charming. The inner walls are painted in vibrant colours like purple and yellow, while the sofas and pillows are patterned and colourful (e.g. stripes, butterflies).
Remember to stop by the chapel-like building (it’s actually a restaurant!) by the pool too. You get to swim being surrounded by mountains, and it also makes a great photo spot!

8. Fairytale dreams can come true – Bibury Resort
As a kid, I would always dream of living in one of those cottages by the plains. There’s just something about cottages that seem so magical, probably due to the fairytales I kept reading during my childhood. And when you’re here with your loved one – trust me – it just gets better.
It’s located in the middle of greenery and plains, making the place feel like a fairytale cottage that Snow White lived in.
Where there’s fairytale, there’s princessy things too. From bathtubs on legs with a view to a white royalty bed, it feels like you’re living in one of those royal English cottages.
The complex has a small lake where you can feed geese, enjoy tea, row a boat or just sit around at. Or else, you can go fire camping (PS: Inform the accommodation beforehand for this activity).

9. Panoramic 360º views of green landscapes and rolling hills – Panalee Home and Camping
Ok… Maybe this isn’t the kind of Tuscany stay you’re expecting. With this African-themed/Mexican infusion vibe going on, it feels like I’m stepping onto the plains of Africa – or sitting among giant cacti in Mexico (said in accent if you’ve been watching Narcos).
However, the trees, mountains, as well as the clouds covering the mountain tops reminds me so strongly of the European countryside. A one-of-a-kind European experience you won’t even find in Europe itself!
Another totally awesome place to camp with your beau for the night, except they provide everything you need, and tents are already set up in a beautiful green garden lined with trees and the rolling hills.
If camping ain’t your sorta thing, indulge in one of their stunning villas, reminiscent of the Western coast in South Africa; cements, neutrals, thatch and simply stylish.

10. Enjoy Italian beauty on a budget – Villa Tuscany Country Resort
Just because you don’t have much to spend on accomodation doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxury and beauty of the countryside in Suan Phueng.
The greenery and low-roofed villas give such strong down-to-earth vibes that it feels like you’re living the local Italian life in a village.
The place is beautiful, and the sight of the vines covering the walls of the villas makes it even more breathtaking.
For those on a tight budget, their modern-styled Standard Room would tick off your comfort needs – it even has a mini fridge!
But if you wish for a more posh and dreamy place, we recommend staying in their other European-styled villas.

11. A taste of Santorini in Tuscany – Dandelion Resort
These two cities might be 31 hours apart in real life, but at Dandelion Resort, they coexist harmoniously, creating a unique Tuscany stay in Suan Phueng.
From the while walls to open rooftops, these quaint villas strongly remind you of those houses along the island at Santorini. The rooms are also cute too, with hearts and chandeliers decorating the place.
The only difference is instead of sea breeze, you get to enjoy nature’s beauty, just like what you’d expect in the Italian countryside.
The villa’s rooftop makes a great place to stargaze too, especially when you’re with your loved one. You can even request to have a barbeque dinner on your rooftop! What a way to end your romantic evening eh?
Price: from 905 Baht / USD $29 per night (Standard) Check Rate on Agoda
Address: 200/12 Moo 7, Suan Phueng, Suan Phueng District, Ratchaburi 70180, Thailand (Coordinates here)

12. Special Mention: Stay overnight in a quaint villa by the field of sheep – The Scenery Vintage Farm
Can’t get enough of sheep? How about staying in the middle of a field of sheep in 1 of the 9 villas named after sheeps (e.g. Merino Villa)?! It definitely doesn’t get anymore sheepier than this…
We recommend staying in 1 of the 6 jacuzzi-type villas by the field of sheep – you can see a herd of sheep right from your window or the rooftop! But if not available, opt to stay in 1 of the 3 bathtub villas for a magical night. So peaceful and full of romance!
You can also hold an intimate BBQ party with your loved one at the rooftop of your villa (BBQ grill is provided). (Please inform the resort beforehand if you wish to hold a BBQ party here.)
If not, you can always stargaze at the rooftop or sit on the hammock while relishing the peaceful night vibes. Super relaxing!
