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?
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.
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.
