Thailand is one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations, and Phuket with its glorious albeit crowded beaches and vibrant nightlife is a favorite among travelers. If you’re looking at Phuket tour packages or Bangkok packages, you’ll see that there is a wide range of options for accommodation, whether B&B’s or super luxury hotels. If you’re looking to indulge in some opulence, Phuket does have some of the best luxury resorts you’ll ever see. Here’s our pick for the top five.
Trisara Phuket – Sanskrit for “Third Garden in Heaven”, the “Trisara” truly makes you wonder what heaven must be like. A super-luxury resort, this one has villas, suites and private residences with a view of the blue ocean. A host of restaurants and lounges, including the recently opened Trisara Seafood offer a culinary treat while you unwind at the beach. Treat yourself to a spa therapy in the Trisara Spa where only the very exclusive Sodashi organic products are used.
Andara Resorts and Villas – Nestled in the green hills overlooking the Kamala Beach, the Andara Resorts and Villas is perfect for a romantic getaway. The villas and suites are the epitome of opulence, and have superb views of the ocean. Andara’s Silk Restaurant is done up beautifully with Thai art, and tropical flowers. Unwind with a cocktail and savor some delicious seafood.
The Pavilions Phuket – The boutique-style hilltop resort near the tip of the Bang Tao Beach is a great balance between staying close enough to Phuket’s vibrant nightlife, and having that tranquil getaway. Extremely well suited for a honeymoon, the Pavilions has a range of thoughtfully crafted treats including candle-light dinners and “love-potion” signature cocktails.
Anantara Phuket Villas – A stone’s throw away from the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea, the Anantara Phuket is located on the secluded northwest coast of the island. You can take an excursion through the mangroves of the nearby Sirinath National Park, or dive in the stunning sea. Enjoy a ginger-infused cocktail while you watch the sun set over the Andaman Sea.
Banyan Tree Phuket – Located at the Bang Tao bay, the Banyan Tree Phuket is a great place to stay whether you want a quiet, romantic getaway with your partner, or a family holiday to remember. With a casuarina tree-lined road that takes you into a world of green expanses and coconut groves, not to mention the gorgeous ocean, you will truly have experienced Phuket. Take a lesson in scuba diving, or unwind at the spa with a Harmony Banyan massage.
While with these five, we’ve just scraped the surface, they are excellent places to pamper yourself in the tropical paradise that’s Phuket. So the next time you’re browsing Phuket tour packages, do check them out.
