If you’re anything like me, your Sunday nights just haven’t been the same since the tragic heroes and lovable villains of the White Lotus ended their tenure on the small screen. But the big news for fans & travelers is that White Lotus is officially back. And the newest season will be filmed in Thailand.

Thailand has all the trappings of a bucket-list destination: the country offers a mesmerizing tapestry of experiences, from the electricity of Bangkok to the paradisiacal shores of Koh Samui. Add a little bit of White Lotus magic to the mix, and Thailand is gearing up for its leading role on the tourism stage.

I can’t wait until 2025, when the season is set to debut. In the meantime, I'm eyeing a trip to Thailand, specifically the show's hotel filming locations, Phuket and Koh Samui. Read on to learn about the two hotels that will serve as the season three's luxe settings. Then, connect with me to plan and book your dream Thailand trip, because the early bird gets the worm.

In Koh Samui: Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui

In Koh Samui, a beachside retreat known for its natural beauty and cultural riches, the White Lotus will film at the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui. 

Perched on a hillside overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, this luxe Four Seasons hotel boasts panoramic views of the turquoise waters and lush greenery. You'll stay in meticulously designed villas that blend traditional Thai architecture with modern elegance, featuring infinity pools seamlessly merging with the ocean horizon.

Savor exquisite dining experiences at the Pla Pla restaurant, specializing in fresh seafood, or enjoy authentic Thai cuisine at Lan Tania. And the spa, surrounded by tropical gardens, provides an authentic sanctuary for local treatments and world-class wellness programs.

Fora Perks at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui:

  • When you book Four Seasons through me, you'll enjoy exclusive Four Seasons Preferred Partner benefits. I'll be pleased to give you more details.

In Phuket: Anantara Mai Khao Villas Phuket

The next White Lotus season will also be using the Anantara Mai Khao Villas Phuket as a filming location. This will be the show’s first non-Four Seasons property featured.

Equally luxe though more under-the-radar than the Four Seasons hotel, this Phuket retreat is Tanya-approved, with infinity pools, gorgeously appointed pool villas and thoughtful Thai touches. The name of the game here is understated luxury. For instance, the two-bedroom royal villa by Jim Thompson is set amidst lush tropical gardens and boasts Bulgari bath amenities, open-air showers and plenty of jewel tones. Don't miss the Anantara Mai Khao’s spa and wellness facilities, offering a chance to rejuvenate and relax with a variety of treatments.

Fora Perks at Anantara Mai Khao Villas Phuket:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, 60-minute Thai boxing lesson for up to two people, upgrade & early check-in whenever possible.

If I learned anything from the previous two seasons of White Lotus, it's that their chosen destinations sell out quickly, so now is the time to book. Connect with me to plan your dream Thailand getaway, before the crowds set in.
