Luxury boutique hotel The Aleenta is located in Phang Nga, overlooking the Andaman Sea at Natai Beach. Although just a 20 minute drive from Phuket international airport, it feels a world away, on a picturesque stretch of sandy bay.
This boutique hotel offers a handful of spacious suites and villas, but a variety of room categories ensures there is the perfect accommodation for all guests, from one to three bedrooms, with or without private swimming pool. Guest accommodation is modern in style, most with sea views, but all just a few steps from the sandy beach and with a private terrace.
Breakfast is served at the Natai restaurant, which also offers a menu of contemporary Thai cuisine for lunch and dinner each day. The signature restaurant The Edge is located right on the beachfront, and is open for lunch and dinner each day. The kitchen team at The Edge serve an international menu, with live cooking stations at lunch time, and a more tranquil fine dining experience each night. The Edge restaurant and bar attracts diners from many neighbouring hotels too.
The Ayurah Spa takes its name from the Sanskrit word for longevity and healthy life, and offers guests a relaxing retreat, with a health conscious angle. The spa offers a range of conventional treatments, alongside more contemporary offerings including oxygen and light therapy technologies.
The hotel offers a beachfront infinity swimming pool, and cocktail bar, as well as a fully equipped gym, and yoga platform. For those whiling away the days beachside, there are plenty of shaded loungers for guests use. Alternatively explore the towns and jungle of Phuket, or depart on snorkelling trips.
Why we love it
The suites and villas offer all of the amenities expected of a luxury beach hotel, whilst still offering the feelings of privacy enjoyed in a private villa stay.
