Phuket + The Islands
Hotels in Phuket + The Islands
This first property in Ritz-Carlton’s new culturally conscious Reserve collection is set on the quiet shores of Krabi, Thailand, overlooking the Andaman Sea.
Seclusion is one of the most attractive amenities at the resort, on a 237-acre island reserve 170 miles south of Phuket.
Phuket Island’s northwestern coast is home to this villa resort near Bang Tao Bay. Small-scale, modern buildings influenced by local architecture make up the accommodations.
This is the Asian seaside escape at its best: all the beauty of a remote destination without the hassle of being entirely off the grid. On the isle of Yao Noi, 45 minutes by boat from Phuket, guests are surrounded by lush jungle, tiny fishing villages, and untouched beaches.
Aimed at travelers who prefer Wi-Fi with their R&R, the 77-room Langham Place Samui promises you can stay plugged-in even from your villa’s rustic-chic canopy bed or on the sugar-sand beach. But that’s not to say this sleek newcomer doesn’t inspire relaxation.
Beachside resort with lagoon-style pools and a shuttle to Patong Beach.
Room to Book: Deluxe Ocean View rooms have private balconies.
Doubles from $344.
With 70 expansive two-, three- and four-bedroom bi-level villas outfitted with lustrous wood furnishings, the lushly landscaped property is a bit like bunking at a second home. Naturally, creature comforts include Wi-Fi, a ceramic cooktop, and a washer—but why waste your days doing laundry?
Destination Spa Spa-obsessed jet-setters, take note: Six Senses has brought the best of Southeast Asia’s healing arts to a speck of land off Phuket’s eastern coast. A 26-acre retreat houses four individual spas—yes, four—each dedicated to Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, or Thai traditions.
