Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa

888 Moo 3
Phuket , Thailand http://phuket.anantara.com/
66-76-336-100

For its first Phuket property, Anantara eschewed bare-bones minimalism in favor of a fresh take on classic Thai aesthetics. Hidden within a former coconut plantation are 83 bougainvillea-covered villas, whose wooden walls and sloping roofs make guests feel as if they’re meandering through a local village. But there’s nothing rustic here: each villa, clad in teak and raw silk, comes with a swimming pool, an outdoor daybed, and a terrazzo bathtub. The expansive spa lured us from our rooms for the kind of massage that makes jet-lagged muscles thankful to be in Thailand.
