Phuket is paradise and the best way to explore paradise is from the comfort and relaxation of your luxury resort.
With 100’s of options, it would have been impossible to make a decision on where to stay so luckily – we’ve done that for you! Here are five luxury resorts you need to experience ASAP.
1. THE SHORE AT KATATHANI
Here you will find the balance between tranquillity, serenity and weightlessness. How? Their enormous sized Pool Villa rooms overlook the breathtaking shores of the Phuket Sea while offering guests their own private infinity plunge pools just steps away from the end of the king-size bed.
The Shore also offers heaven on earth for food lovers with a menu that combines classic and inventive international cuisine, changing throughout the day. If food, sun, sea and relaxation are what you’re craving – this resort will tick all of your boxes and even some you didn’t know you had.
2. SRI PANWA RESORT
Sitting amongst 40 acres of tropical surroundings, this hidden gem perched atop the tip of Cape Panwa offers unyielding privacy and uninterrupted views of the Andaman ocean. With views catering to the sunrise and the sunset in all of us, guests can choose which side of the resort they stay on to best suit their viewing pleasure.
Whether you’re travelling with family or your special someone, this five-star slice of heaven on earth offers a couple’s suite all the way up to a five-bedroom residence. Talk about maximum space, maximum privacy and one of the trendiest resorts in Phuket? Yes, please!
If you ever dreamed of being transported to a place where fantastic creatures and fairies come out from behind leafy green overgrown trees, you were most likely dreaming of Keemala.
Their unique design concepts and traditional homage to their land make their passion for service and the pride in their work, second to none. One of their stand-out accommodation options is the Bird’s Nest Pool Villas.
Draped over the oversized beds are luxuriously soft Egyptian cotton sheets, ocean, rainforest and mountain views with a private lap pool and extensive outdoor pool terrace. Everyone will understand if you pack your bags and head here tomorrow!
4. INIALA BEACH HOUSE
If your customers want the crème de la crème of resorts, you can’t go past the Iniala Beach House. With three beach-front villas and one penthouse, the only service they offer is one where you don’t have to lift a finger. Each villa has a dedicated team including –deep breath-… 24-hour assistance from the fully staffed reception and concierge, a driver, butler, chef, spa therapist and a housekeeper.
It’s also compulsory to include full-board here but you won’t be complaining when you find out that the chef’s menu is dependant entirely on you. That’s right – unlimited chicken nuggets for your week away or a seven-course degustation – you pick.
5. JW MARRIOTT PHUKET RESORT & SPA
For our families that want the luxury treatment on their holiday, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Located just steps away from Mai Khao beach, this resort boasts incredible views, beautiful scenery and 11 restaurants. Pamper yourself in the spa, take the plunge in one of the three sparkling pools or visit the onsite turtle shelter.
No matter what you are looking for in Thailand, the setting of this resort keeps you close enough to the hustle and bustle of Phuket but just far enough away that you can enjoy the serenity of the beach and focus on the little things.
If you’ve ever needed motivation to book your next luxurious holiday, then don’t let this inspiration go to waste – get booking. Cocktails, massages and fluffy, cloud-like pillows await!
