Overlooking a private bay on the quiet, northwest coastline of Phuket, the ultra-luxurious Trisara has arguably surpassed the Amanpuri as the finest resort on the island.
The 42 pool suites and villas are scattered amongst 40 acres of tropical forest, with views over the Andaman Sea. All have private infinity-edge pools, teak decks for sunbathing, and are fully wired with all the latest technology, including plasma TVs, DVD players, surround sound stereos and high-speed broadband internet.
The resort's white-sand beach is sheltered by two headlands and a coral reef provides great snorkeling and protects against the intrusion of noisy jet-skis. Sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are among the watersports on offer, and a dedicated PADI dive centre offers professional instruction and excursions to the region's best dive sites. Luxury motor yachts are available for half or full-day cruises to explore the beautiful coastline and islands close to Phuket.
The spa offers a variety of treatments and massages, as well as yoga and pilates. Other facilities include a 45-metre saltwater swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym and two floodlit tennis courts with a professional available for private coaching. Last but not least, Trisara serves excellent Thai and international cuisine, which you can enjoy in the restaurant, by the pool, on the beach, or in the privacy of your own villa.
Why we love it
Every villa comes with its own private infinity-edged swimming pool.
