Holiday in a luxury hotel in Phuket with Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Follow the buckled trunks of palm trees to crystal-blue water, explore the statue-filled gardens of gilded Buddhist temples or re-energise with a traditional Thai massage.
Luxury Phuket beaches
Pink red adenium flowers sprout from ceramic pots at your beachside boutique hotel, lending the warm sea air a soothing, tropical scent. Sink beneath the electric blue water of the Andaman Sea to dive with manta rays and hawksbill turtles. Pampering Thai massages at Chewang Beach use pungent local honey and ginger. Lounge on your private terrace looking out over craggy limestone karsts as the sun sinks toward the purple horizon.
Luxury things to do in Phuket
Sino-Portuguese mansions dot the palm groves around Old Phuket Town where exclusive jewellery boutiques and art galleries are linked by covered walkways. Journey along the sand-fringed coastline to Bang Pae Waterfall where the torrent has carved a deep swimming hole into the land below. Golfers will enjoy secluded courses nestled amid palm-clad hills. Experience life in the slow lane as an elephant provides your transport for a sultry jungle safari.
Spicy shrimps and glass noodles served at gourmet restaurants on the waterfront are delicately fragranced with crushed lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. Smooth local whisky adds a delicious kick to a star fruit cocktail. At a bar on Kata Beach, sip the sugary milk of a coconut served in its shell. A half-buried palm tree is your natural sun umbrella.
Choose a luxury hotel in Phuket with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to explore an island of kaleidoscopic reefs and powder-fine beaches. Holiday in a suite with a rooftop pool or take in views of pristine beaches from the glass-walled bedroom of your boutique hotel.
