Phuket + The Islands

Hotels in Phuket + The Islands

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?

Phuket's Amanpuri is the very first Amanresorts property and, perhaps, the loveliest. Guests may book one of 40 rooms or 30 villas and dine in either of the 2 restaurants before hitting the property's bar. Villas come with a private pool, a driver, a gardener and two maids.

106-room waterfront property with lots of activities (including sailing on Bophut Bay and Thai language lessons), on Phuket’s longest beach.

Room to Book: Deluxe rooms are on the second or third floor feature terrazzo tubs for two.

Doubles from $310.

The 81-suite and villa Outrigger Resort and Spa is located on the Koh Samui island’s Bophut Bay, a laid-back stretch of sand 20 minutes from the island’s major city, Chaweng, and 10 minutes from Koh Samui International Airport.

While the adults soak in infinity pools overlooking the Andaman Sea, the kids take advantage of the Trisara Kids pavilion. Thirty-nine accommodations make up this resort, ranging from individual rooms to a six-bedroom residence.

During weeklong retreats at the 8,000-square-foot spa, guests focus on treatments and yoga, and relax on white-sand beaches just south of Krabi. For those looking to quit smoking, a naturopathic doctor leads support sessions, treats withdrawal symptoms, and recommends Ayurvedic treatments.

Formerly Pansea Napasai Samui

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.
