In the country dubbed as the “land of smiles,” Thailand’s Phuket stands out with its stunning beaches and breathtaking sights. But there are lots of other reasons in this city that will make you smile, and its luxury hotels are among them.
Just 15 minutes from the Phuket International Airport is Trisara Phuket Resort, perched atop a private bay and tucked within a lush tropical forest. Since its opening in November 2004, the hotel has established itself with its exceptional facilities and quality service.
You’ll find yourself close to water in this hotel, no matter which room you stay in. Book the whole family in any of the 18 pool suites, each of which are spaced out across 170 square metres of floor area and includes a 96-square-metre internal bedroom. There are 24 pool villas for bigger groups, each boasting a massive space of 240 square metres. Enjoy the infinity pool, and an enormous 50-square-metre bedroom. There are also outdoor showers and teak sun decks with stunning views of the Andaman Sea. If you want to take advantage of the cool ocean breeze and soothing sound of the waves, book any of the two oceanfront pool villas, which have two bedrooms and a pool. All of the rooms include amenities such as plasma televisions, broadband Internet, and DVD players.
There is much to do in this hotel. Explore the richness of Phuket aboard a yacht and visit the reef close to Trisara bay for diving, snorkelling, or sailing.
Another luxury hotel in Phuket is Six Senses Hideway Yao Noi, on the island of Yao Noi. Native cottages decked out with modern furniture and highlighted by infinity pools welcome you to this heavenly resort. Pamper yourself at the music and movie library, library with Internet access, gallery, and jewellery shop.
