Destination Phuket: Luxury Hotels in the Thailand Hotspot

Thailand has become an ultra-trendy travel destination as of the last few years. Whether you’re a young professional backpacking through Asia or a newlywed couple on your honeymoon, there are so many reasons to place Thailand on your bucket list — more specifically, Phuket, Thailand. One of the swankiest and most beautiful areas of the country, Phuket is an inviting island in the Andaman Sea that is home to turquoise blue water, sandy beaches, forested mountains, and some of the best accommodations in the region. Check out which luxury hotels in Phuket top our list below!

With a spectacular setting on the beautiful, near-deserted Natai Beach, Jivana Beach Villas are the perfect choice for the tropical vacation of your dreams. Each villa is the epitome of luxury, complete with a minimum of six bedrooms, four Thai style pavilions, private courtyards, lush gardens, an infinity pool, and of course, beach access. More than that, there is a personal chef who prepares breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily (with staff taking care of all the grocery shopping), as well as a full-service onsite spa that offers Thai massages, oil massages, and manicures and pedicures. In essence, if you’re looking to escape reality and enjoy an intimate holiday in paradise, Jivana Beach Villas will be the destination for you.

Nestled within 43 acres of lush tropical forest, Rosewood Phuket is a romantic and secluded seaside hideaway. This luxury beach estate provides a stunning backdrop for any vacation in Thailand and offers two types of accommodations: pavilions and villas. Pavilions are the smaller option of the two, boasting private pool terraces and ocean views, while the villas offer a residential-style experience complete with multiple bedrooms, private pools and hot tubs, and a courtyard garden. Though you’ll be tempted to spend all your time in this gorgeous hotel, don’t miss out on the various activities the resort can arrange for you, including sailing and luxury yacht charters, snorkelling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, helicopter tours, and excursions to the nearby Si Phang Nga National Park.
